Cinnamon rolls are one of my favorite things in the world. This recipe takes all the flavors I love in that pastry and transforms them into a good-for-you breakfast packed with delicious oats. It’s quick and easy to throw together and is a perfect make-ahead for an on-the-go breakfast.
For the oats: In a large bowl, whisk together the milk, melted butter, brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and salt until the brown sugar has dissolved. Stir in the oats and divide among four jars. Cover tightly and refrigerate until thickened and the oats are soft, at least 8 hours or overnight.
For the berry compote: Combine the berries and brown sugar in a small saucepan and cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until the berries break down and the juices thicken, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and let cool. Cover and refrigerate until needed.
