Fill Jar with Oats
Task 3: Flour mixture
In a medium small bowl, combine first five ingredients on list: (flour, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon, and baking soda).
Pour mixture neatly over oatmeal. Be sure while you’re adding ingredients to jar not to shake it, or the layers will be muddled.
Task 4: Sugars
In same bowl, combine the two sugars together. Then pour over as third layer in jar.

pour chocolate chips into jar. Secure sealed lid.
Task 6: Take a step back and look at it.
