I work from home even though I’m not really allowed to walk Everywhere, I still appreciate a quick breakfast that I can pull out of the fridge.

I love opening my fridge to see these oatmeal and chia cups waiting for me.

But of course if you are When you’re rushing out the door, these mugs come in really handy too. In fact, I often bring them in the car when I’m on the road and don’t want to rely on fast food.

You can make as many or as few of these oatmeal cups as you like. They keep for a good 5 days in the fridge.

The longer they sit, the thicker the bottom layer will be, so I suggest you mix them up in a bowl once you’ve filled your glass to the brim. Either that, or prepare them in a larger jar so you have enough room to mix everything together when a bowl isn’t nearby.

Plus, the oatmeal and chia seeds are so filling that I don’t get hungry until lunch!

You can use sweetened or vanilla yogurt to your liking. The raisins and fruit fill me up enough to save my sweet cravings for another, more worthy occasion – one that will surely come up sometime later in the day.
