Log Cabin Overnight Oats

Spring break has ended and we enjoyed some time away at the 100 Acre Log Cabin, in Morgantown, IN, not too far from Nashville, IN. We love to disconnect for a while to play games, talk, and spend a little quality time together. 

We ended up packing most of our food so that we could stay in and relax with our good friends that came along with us. I have been prepping my weekly oatmeal bowls for some time now, but recently switched to using mason jars. This was a fantastic idea for this trip! This may work well when I travel for my races too.  

One of the oatmeal mixes was French Toast Oats. It is SO good, that I am sharing it. I located this recipe on Pinterest at Smart Little Cookie

I have made a few minor changes (noted in parentheses below) and gave them a new name, "Log Cabin" Overnight Oats. :) You may find the consistency a little thick (I compare it to cookie dough so I like it) but you could always heat it up and add a little more almond milk to thin it out. Simply add all of the ingredients to a 10oz mason jar and let it sit overnight.  Enjoy!
