  1. oatmeal
  2. milk
  3. ball jars
  4. lids
  5. spoons
  1. Following directions on Whole Oats Oatmeal box I put 1/2 c of oats in the bottom of a ball jar. To that I added 1 cup of milk. Put lid on and put in refrigerator over night. In the morning get out of fridge, take topp off (important you must take top off! ;)) add whatever you like. I add cinnamon and cut up apples and microwave for 2-3 minutes depending on your microwave. Start with 2 and add 15 seconds if you don't think it's done to reach desired doneness. Eat and enjoy!
