Mango Overnight Oatmeal..perfect for hectic school mornings!

Back-to-school schedules means that mornings are completely hectic at our house and with another kid headed off to kindergarten this year, I have to make breakfast and lunch quickly every morning.  I'm not a morning person and neither is my daughter, so a quick (and healthy breakfast) does not always make it to the table before we rush out the door.

This year, I vow to do better and make sure I get a good breakfast into my kids before the school bell rings.  I've been makin' variations of this Overnight Mango Oatmeal all summer and it's so easy.  While I'm cleaning up the supper dishes, I quickly make up a couple jars of oatmeal and stick in the fridge.  That way, when the kids get up they can grab their own breakfast.

It will be so nice having these in the fridge for school morning breakfasts.  That way, when I'm busy helping one kid, the other can easily grab their own breakfast.  No more sugary cereals or worse, granola bars in the car (I'm guilty of the latter far too often).

I love how versatile this recipe is. You can use pumpkin butter in the fall, berries in late spring, or go crazy and try peanut butter or Nutella.  Use what you have on hand or what's on sale to keep it budget friendly!

  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (regular milk works too)
  • 2 mangoes, cored, peeled, and roughly chopped
  • 1 tbls agave syrup (optional for sweet oats)
  • dash salt
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 2 pint sized mason jars with lids

Directions for Making Overnight Mango Oatmeal

1. Combine first four ingredients into a blender and blend until combined and smooth.

2. Divide oats into 2 pint sized mason jars and pour half of mango mixture over each jar of oats. Add lid and ring to mason jar, shake well to combine. Let sit in refrigerator overnight (about 8 hours).
