Greek Yogurt Overnight Oat Recipe

  1. Scoop in dry oats to bottom of the jar. 
  2. Add milk. We don’t love milk, so we add add just a dash to make the oats softer.

  4. Add chia.

  7. Set in fridge overnight.

These cute treats make mornings so much healthier. Plus, I love that I’m reducing waste by utilizing these sweet jars that can be filled again and again.
