  1. Combine all overnight oat ingredients in a jar or container with a lid, stirring well. Refrigerate overnight.
  2. In a small saucepan over low heat, heat chopped rhubarb, strawberries, and water.
  3. Cook 3-5 minutes, or until fruit is softened and cooked down.
  4. Add maple syrup, and remove from heat.
  5. Put the fruit compote in a closed jar and store in fridge.
