How I make Overnight Oats Using Instant Oatmeal

Overnight oats using instant oatmeal packets are my favorite way to eat oats at the moment. It’s crazy easy. I’ll toss a packet of Steel Cut Oats With Flax Seeds and add 2.5 fluid ounces of unsweetened almond milk to a tiny mason jar. I’ll give it a shake shake shake and place it inside my super amazing Samsung skinny fridge door. Approximately 6 to 24 hours later and I’ve got the perfect neutral oatmeal base and can add any toppings I want, to suite whatever mood i am in that moment. It’s love I tell you.

Jam in overnight oats is MY jam! Ha!

I kinda added my favorite blueberry jam to my overnight oats by total accident, before even attempting to put together this recipe for you. I LOVE adding organic preserves to so many things, but I had never attempted adding it to overnight oats. I was pleasantly surprised and pretty much hummed MMM the entire time. 

Of course that fast healthy meal was not a dessert per se, but I digress. It’s probably one of my favorite ingredients to add right now. In fact, I have another jam flavor to try soon.

Can you add jam in overnight oats? Hell yea you can!

My Most Popular Overnight Oats Recipe Using Instant Oatmeal Packets

One of my time saving methods for overnight oats is to buy individual instant oatmeal packets. Sure, you may pay a little more for these individual packets verses buying a huge container and measuring out the instant oats yourself, but I’m a busy mama.

The individual instant oatmeal packets truly help me toss together my base overnight oats ingredients in literally a MINUTE and toss them in the fridge to grab later that day or the next day.

Have you ever tried adding Jam In Overnight Oats?

Aldi currently carries my all-time favorite organic jams and preserves line made by Simply Nature. This brand is one of my top 3 healthy brands when I’m shopping for my fridge and pantry, over-all. In fact, I just listed their Organic Instant Oatmeal was one of my top 5 Healthy Instant Oatmeal Brands For You To Try

Adding an organic jam or preserve to your oatmeal can instantly make it naturally sweet. The jam’s thickness makes the overall texture so enjoyable. I like my oats to be a little thicker verses runny so jam is something I reach for when I have a sweet tooth. I highly recommend this topping, if you haven’t tried it yet!

I'm obsessed with this overnight oats dessert

It’s really good y’all. It’s incredibly indulgent. I used all organic healthy ingredients, but when put altogether, you have quite the dessert in front of you! It’s delicious. My sweet tooth is a total fan-girl.
