Refrigerator Oatmeal-Non Vegan/Vegan GLUTEN FREE

I know that with all my friends–its back to school week and quick healthy and easy breakfasts are mandatory. Although none of my kids are in school yet, I too have been attempting to stream-line breakfasts in my home. I found a Refrigerator Oatmeal recipe (I never pinned it so I have no idea where its from–oops) on pinterest, and I have made some variations.

I quadruple-multiply by 8 to make it last all week. It’s better after 12 hrs. AND, my allergic to everything son can have it (without nuts or soy) and help me to make it.

AND, It’s good for up to 6 days in the fridge (BONUS)!
