OVERNIGHT OATMEAL IN MASON JARS




HAVE YOU TRIED OVERNIGHT OATMEAL IN MASON JARS YET? I LOVED THE CONCEPT OF THESE! EASY TO MAKE, CUTE TO LOOK AT AND HEALTHY TOO? WOW!!  IF YOU LOVE THE TEXTURE OF OATMEAL, THIS IS FOR YOU! I ONLY LIKE OATMEAL A LITTLE SO THESE WERE NOT A FAVORITE HERE. SO CUTE TO LOOK AT THOUGH! HEE HEE  LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK IF YOU TRY THEM. I MADE THEM TWICE. ONCE WITH CHOBANI AND ONCE WITH A NON GREEK STYLE YOGURT.


RECIPE
1/4 cup uncooked old fashioned rolled oats
1/3 cup skim milk ( I USED ALMOND MILK)
1/4 cup low-fat CHOBANI Greek yogurt (I ALSO TRIED BANANA AND RASP NON GREEK STYLES)
1-1/2 teaspoons dried chia seeds
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon raspberry jam, preserves, or spread
1/4 to 1/3 cup raspberries (cut each berry in half), or enough to fill jar

Directions
In a half pint (1 cup) jar, add oats, milk, yogurt, chia seeds, and raspberry jam. Put lid on jar and shake until well combined. Remove lid, add raspberries and stir until mixed throughout. Return lid to jar and refrigerate overnight or as long as 2-3 days. Eat chilled.

I am making them to try as a treat in my kids lunches. I am hoping it will be a healthy substitute for pudding. Wish me luck!!

Do you think it would be good as a treat in lunches? I was thinking of trying it as a substitute for pudding in lunches.
