Overnight Oatmeal Survival Packets
THM:E, low fat, sugar free || (allergy info for oatmeal without any additions) gluten/egg free, dairy free if using collagen, nut free if using carton coconut milk instead of almond milk (most people with nut allergies can have coconut products, but check with your doctor first to make sure)
Serves: 1
Dry ingredients:
1½ c. water and/or unsweetened almond milk
  1. Measure the dry ingredients into individual sealable plastic bags or containers. The recipe above makes one packet, so simply add those ingredients to as many packets as you need.
  2. The night before you want to eat your oatmeal, add one packet to a pint-sized glass jar, put a lid on it, and shake it to evenly distribute the dry ingredients. Add 1½ cups of liquid; I like to use a combination of water and almond milk. Put the lid on the jar again and shake it well to combine the dry and wet ingredients, then refrigerate overnight to thicken.
  3. Minimalist version: use all water and don't even refrigerate. Eat oatmeal at lukewarm temperature in morning. I have done this.
  4. My favorite version: use whey protein powder instead of collagen for a creamier result and mix with 1 c. water and ½ c. unsweetened almond milk. Refrigerate properly.
Possible additions (to taste): chili powder, defatted peanut flour, instant coffee granules
