Overnight Steel Cut Oats with Dried Apricots

On the Menu Today~
Overnight Oats with Apricots
Made with steel-cut oats and dried apricots.

The dried apricots plump during cooking,
which makes them extra sweet and chewy...
Making this recipe for overnight steel-cut oat with dried apricots....

This recipe makes a lot of oatmeal...
which is wonderful because
you can have oatmeal for breakfast all week long or
you can freeze it.
Yes, you read that right...
you can freeze oatmeal.

I like to freeze oatmeal in 8 oz size,
plastic freezer jars/containers by Ball.
These containers are used mainly to make freezer jam but
they also work great for freezing oatmeal.
The serving size is just the right amount for oatmeal.

These handy Ball containers work the best for me.
They're stack-able, convenient and relatively inexpensive.
Plus, these containers are made for the freezer...

  1. I never thought of overnighting the oats. Waking up to oats and coffee both ready at once sounds a very pleasant thought.

    1. Thanks Sheila~
      Once you try over-night oats,
      you'll love them.
      Just make sure to start them as late in
      the evening as possible...
      Right before bedtime~
