Overnight oatmeal is one of my favorite breakfasts. Mornings can be a little hectic getting the Little up and dressed, fed, and off to school. Sometimes I don't get a chance to make my breakfast until after she is gone, and by that time I am busy with other things around the house or recipe developing. It is so nice to have a quick and tasty breakfast waiting for me, with just a few additions that I can do in the mornings.

I usually double or triple this recipe so I have 2-3 days worth of breakfasts, and switch up the fruit. I use whatever fruit is in season, or something I happen to have in the freezer. Pineapple and coconut are great tropical flavors and perfect for eating this right out of the jar! Strawberries, blueberries and bananas are some of the other favorite fruits I also use.

Both milk and yogurt give this oatmeal a good amount of protein, along with the benefits of both oatmeal and chia seeds. I love using chia because it absorbs the mixture and thickens it just the way I like. You can definitely warm this up in a microwave-safe container, but I usually just eat it straight from the jar and topped with fruit or granola.
