I've been having this as breakfast or lunch for the past month or so. I love it! Love love love it! It's so easy and perfect for people who are in a rush in the morning.
I have tweaked it and made a few changes over time, but you can just follow the recipe and enjoy as weel.
I use soy, almond or coconut milk instead of cow milk. I also add less yogurt than the recipe calls for and more milk. I use a quart mason jar and I do measure the oats and chia seeds. I add a heaping soup spoon of non fat greek yogurt, whatever fillings I want and fill the jar up with the milk. Sometimes I used plain flavoured milk, sometimes vanilla and sometimes chocolate...whatever I'm feeling like or have.
Some flavour combos I love...
cinnamon, nutmeg, honey and fresh banana cut up
fresh apple chopped (but would like to try apple sauce), cinnamon and honey
frozen blueberry and vanilla
frozen raspberry and vanilla
I make it before going to bed and then when I'm frantically running around in the morning, I just have to grab it and go. I eat it at my desk. I'm always sad when I get to the bottom because it's soooo good...but very filling.
I love the versatility of it. You could do whatever mix in's you like!
Thank you Pepper Lynn! You've changed my breakfast habit!
