Recipe of the Week

From the taste kitchen of Dr. Sarah Laginess and Family

Blueberry Maple Refrigerator Oatmeal



  • 1/4 cup uncooked old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup skim milk
  • 1/4 cup low-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons dried chia seeds
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup (more or less to taste)
  • 1/4 cup blueberries (or enough to fill jar)



In a half pint (1 cup) jar, add oats, milk, yogurt, chia seeds, and maple syrup. Put lid on jar and shake until well combined. Remove lid, add blueberries and stir until mixed throughout. Return lid to jar and refrigerate overnight or up to 2 days. Eat chilled.



-I use whatever milk we have on hand (2% or fat free)

-I use plain whole milk yogurt

-I use 1 tablespoon of maple syrup

-Pure maple syrup really makes the flavor, artificial table syrup doesn’t quite taste as good

-I have added blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and cut up strawberries

-I have also made a quadruple batch in a big container but my kids really like the little mason jars for serving.
