Here’s a holiday-worthy oatmeal recipe that requires no cooking – just put the ingredients in a mason jar and shake it up.
TIP: You might notice seasonal “nog” drinks in your grocery’s dairy case. You can sub one of those for the oat milk in this recipe ...
But be sure to read the label to make sure it’s not loaded with extra sugar or additives.
