Layered Oatmeal In A Jar

Layered Oatmeal In A Jar
1/3 cup old-fashioned oats
2 Tablespoons raisins (or other dried fruit)
2 Tablespoons nuts
2/3 cup boiling water
1 Tablespoon jam, preserves, or nut butter
splash of milk, if desired

In a heatproof bowl or jar, layer the oats, fruit, and nuts. Pour the boiling water over top, then immediately microwave on HIGH (100%) power for one minute. Cover and let stand for two minutes, then stir in remaining ingredients. 
I figured I better share this, one of my easy go-to oatmeal recipes when I forget to make overnight oats the night before, before winter comes to a true end. This makes one warm breakfast in minutes, and is different every time!
