In a small bowl mix the brown sugar and cinnamon; set aside.
In the mason jar layer ingredients one at a time in this order, tapping jar gently on the counter after each addition (helps everything settle): oatmeal, brown sugar mixture, ground flax, and dried fruit. Cover with lid.
Before serving, empty contents from jar in a bowl and combine.
For 2 servings: In a medium saucepan, bring 1 cup of water and 1/2 cup of milk to a simmer. Add 1 cup of oatmeal mixture and simmer for 5 minutes or until desired consistency is reached. (Oatmeal will thicken as it cools).
