These have quickly become a go to breakfast and snack item in my house. The mixture will keep for up to two days — if you don’t add the banana, up to four days. However, once you are experienced, you’ll have no problem whipping up another batch midweek if needed!
Refrigerate overnight or at least 5 hours
1/3 to 1/2 cup rolled oats
1/3 to 1/2 cup liquid of choice
1/3 to 1/2 cup yogurt (optional)
1/2 banana, mashed (optional)
1 teaspoon chia seeds
Toppings of choice
1. Add the desired base ingredients to a jar or other container and give them a good stir. Refrigerate overnight or for at least 5 hours.
2. In the morning, add additional liquid if you’d like. Once you achieve the desired consistency, add any toppings that you have on hand.

As you can see our oats are labeled by owner. Whipping these up with Taylor not only give us quality time together, but encourages her to eat a natural Whole Foods treat that she's created instead of a quick processed food snack.
