I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Overnight Apple Oatmeal Breakfast

Tried another breakfast jar. This one took a little more effort than the last.

I started by making up a batch of cooked sliced apples.

2 apples, I used 1 Gala and 1 Granny Smith
some cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice, whatever you like
1/4 cup water

Cover over medium heat and cook 10 - 15 minutes.

We had these on our pancakes Saturday morning but I reserved about 1/2 cup of apples for the jars.

1 cup oatmeal
1 tbsp flax (optional)
1 tbsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup milk

1/2 cup cooked apples
1 - 100g individual vanilla yogurt cup (or Greek yogurt)

Mix the oatmeal, brown sugar, cinnamon and milk together, then spoon some into the bottom of each jar. Layer yogurt, then apples.

And continue to fill the jars with layers in any order you like. Cover and refrigerate.

Tomorrow morning breakfast will be ready!

If you  don't have mason jars around you can always use plastic cups.
