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.
