Oatmeal keeps well in the fridge for a few days. I personally like it fresh with berries or banana.

I love oatmeal for breakfast. it's an ongoing favorite, so yes I deal with leftovers. I put it in the frig in one sealed container and dip out what I want over the next day or two, no longer than that - I imagine it getting slimy but that is just my imagination. I throw out what is left at the end of the third day of a cooked batch. I add: cinnamon, banana's, fruit flavored pie filling (a little does it), a tsp of jelly or jam, canned or fresh fruit if it is soft, dried raisons, cranberries, chopped dates, other dried fruit, there are endless ways of changing it up. that's why I don't get tired of it. It keeps me from having other "problems" and is so good for you in many ways. I hope you find ways to make it delicious and enjoy it soon and often.

I find that I make a large batch and then portion it out in the sizes I want to eat. I put them in a plastic container and after heating put in a bunch of nuts and raisins...any other treat you may like. Add some milk and its like new for me. I do half my breakfasts this way. The other half I do a similar thing with a large stir fry. Only with the stir fry I will hold out the cheese but add it at reheat time....love it all

Saved oatmeal is just thicker than fresh made. You may like the texture and if you don't then add some liquid and heat in a microwave or stovetop.

You could always portion out oatmeal along with other dry ingredients you may use (chopped dates; sultanas; cranberries; etc.) into little snap-lock bags, and just add liquid and quickly zap it in the morning. I have done this. It is a good time-saver.

This isn't with oats, but I have also made up chia pudding with pureed fruit, soy milk and Greek yoghurt with the chia seeds, and portioned them into containers and kept them in the fridge. I had also regularly made a Brown Flaked Rice Pudding with hot soy milk, mashed banana, almond meal and chopped dates and put it in a few ramekins. You can heat it again if you want or have it cold. I actually find that eating it cold is more filling. I gather it's to do with the resistant starch.

Do a search for overnight oats - you can make them up several days ahead of time and add different toppings/stir-ins - I've put them in small jars like jelly jars. You eat them cold, but they can be heated. They are quite good. I wasn't sure I could do cold oats, but they really are very good!

I'm not personally an oatmeal eater, but I HAVE heard others talk about making a batch and reheating for a few days. Never sounded like it was a bad thing ...

Hope this helps!

I've never eaten reheated oatmeal, so I don't know what to tell you.

So I am trying to plan ahead and fix meals that last a whole week. Mostly my breakfast and lunch. I'm especially trying to vary my breakfast each week so I don't get burned out on an item. I've found several recipes on SparkRecipes that I want to try.
My question is there is an oatmeal recipe that I want to try, but I've never made a large batch to save. What's the best way to save oatmeal portions and what about reheating them?

I'm normally not a big fan of leftovers, but I'm trying to readjust my thinking on them.
