Wow, I have read that blog post title a number of times on some of my favourite blogs, and I thought it was high time that I make myself some ‘Oats in a jar’. The name is pretty explanatory, it is literally porridge in a old jar such as peanut butter, jam or chocolate spread! YUM. This morning was cold, and I had a miserable run and was in need of a pick me up; time for oats in a jar!
There isn’t really a recipe for oats in jar, make porridge the way you like it, then serve it in an empty (but not washed out) jar of your choice. Et voila.
Unfortunately, I didn’t really think about the fact that my jar was plastic, and that the very hot porridge might slightly melt the pot. Yes this happened, but I didn’t care as it was still delicious! I am going to need to increase my peanut butter intake so that I can make these more often! That will not be a problem. Anyone got any good PB recipes?
