1 cup of oatmeal (I like using Coach’s Oats because it offers more texture.)
1 cup of milk of your choice (I use almond milk.)
2 tbsp of greek yogurt
1 -2 tsp of honey (depending on your desired sweetness)
1 tbsp of cinnamon
1 cup of toppings of your choice (apples, coconut, sliced almonds, blueberries, bananas and so on)
Mix the dry oatmeal and cinnamon together. Add the milk and yogurt. Stir the mixture making sure the yogurt is evenly distributed. Soak overnight in the fridge. When you are ready to eat, drizzle honey on top and add toppings of your choice.
Tip: You can prep as far in advance as you like. I often prep two or three small containers of the oatmeal deliciousness on Sunday for the week and then add different toppings different days. If you want to keep the crunch to your toppings wait until right before you eat to add them. Items such as bananas are fine soaked overnight with the oatmeal. I find overnight soaked oatmeal more appetizing than hot oatmeal – try it out! By all means you can adjust this single serving by soaking more oatmeal; just remember to keep a one to one ratio between the oatmeal and milk.
About four months into the trail we stopped cooking oatmeal because it was too hot. No time to soak it but we poured milk (powdered ’cause that gallon jug got really heavy) over it and just ait the oatmeal mostly raw. Pretty good if you’re starving.
