For this super quick and easy breakfast I used regular rolled oats and combined them with pantry staples I had on hand such as apple cider, maple syrup and walnuts. Since the oats are soaked overnight they are meant to grab and eat cold. Not a fan of cold oats? No problem — just pop the jar (minus the lid) in the microwave a few minutes.
