Course: Breakfast


  • 1 1 quart mason jar with lid and ring Wide mouth makes it easier to fill


  • 1/4 cup Packed brown sugar
  • 2 tsp  Ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups Old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup Roughly chopped pecans

Mason Jar assembly

  • In a small bowl mix the brown sugar and cinnamon; set aside.
  • In the mason jar layer ingredients one at a time in this order, tapping jar gently on the counter after each addition (helps everything settle): oatmeal, brown sugar mixture, ground flax, and dried fruit.  Cover with lid.  

To make the oatmeal

  • Before serving, empty contents from jar in a bowl and combine.  
  • For 2 servings: In a medium saucepan, bring 1 cup of water and 1/2 cup of milk to a simmer.  Add 1 cup of oatmeal mixture and simmer for 5 minutes or until desired consistency is reached.  (Oatmeal will thicken as it cools). 


  • Use any type of dried fruit and nuts.  
  • This recipe can be made dairy free by replacing the milk with almond milk or something similar.  
  • You can leave out the ground flax and replace it with extra oats, dried fruit, or nuts.
  • This will keep for up to up to 1 month at room temperature.
