My OOIAJ is better than your OOIAJ

In case you haven’t heard of them, OOIAJ = overnight oats in a jar and they are delicious. Today, I did them right. These might be the best overnight oats I’ve ever had.

You say, “but Lauren, it’s twenty degrees outside. Why would you eat cold oats in the morning?”

To you, I say: I love overnight oats. I love nutella. And when you have an empty jar of nutella, you make overnight oats in a nutella jar. Don’t even talk to me about hot oats in a jar. Nutella OIAJ is a dish best served cold. Bundle up and enjoy it.

In an almost-empty nutella jar, combine: 1/2 cup oats, 1/2 cup skim milk, 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt (I used Dannon light & fit), dash of cinnamon. Stir, cover with the jar lid, and place in refrigerator overnight.

In the morning, the oats will have soaked up the moisture and become mushy. Top them with sliced or mashed banana and chopped hazelnuts. Delish!
