Introduction: Overnight Patriotic Oats

About: I'm self taught. I like to make things. (I'm also very thrifty and I don't care much for shopping, so I make a lot of my gifts.) I'm pretty much a do-it-yourselfer.

These overnight oats are patriotic! Why? Because they are red, white and blue of course! They are cool and creamy and filled with healthy, yummy, super foods, and the best part is, you don't have to do anything in the morning! Just layer everything in the jar the night before, and put it in the fridge!


Mason jars with lids.

For each jar:

1/2 cup of old fashioned oats

1/2 cup of milk

1 tablespoon of chia seeds

1 tablespoon of hemp seeds

1 tablespoon of ground flax seeds

Step 12: Lid

Put your lid on and place in the refrigerator.
