How to Make Overnight Oatmeal in a Mason Jar

I love the Chobani Mighty Oat line of breakfast yogurts. I find them nutritious and delicious and very easy to eat. I started to eat them every day. Ironically, it was while searching for alternatives to Chobani Oats that I stumbled upon “overnight oatmeal”[^1]. On that website, I found a recipe Chobani oatmeal that led me to do some research on making my yoghurt oatmeal. I used Google search terms “yoghurt oats” and got a page full of search results with recipes.

I reviewed many of the recipes, learning about the few key ingredients that could go into a recipe. Some recipes used yogurt, some added milk, others used coconut milk or almond milk. All of the recipes used rolled oats because steel-cut oats would be too chewy and berries — strawberries, blueberries, raspberries etc. Some used chia-seed in the recipe but I don’t like the texture of slimy chia. After doing some research I decided to create my own overnight oats.

While I choose to use honey in the mix (before chilling) to add a touch of sweetness, it is optional. I didn’t like the texture and flavour as much as the rolled oats but muesli works just as well.

I picked up a 227g (8oz) bag from Rojo's Roastery in Princeton. It is a limited edition artisan roast. Mild. I didn't detect any fruit or berry but I'm not a taste expert. I just know what I like. Perhaps I need to take a cupping class?
