The recipe I used was:
1/2 C Old Fashioned Oats
1/2 C Non-Fat, Plain Greek Yogurt
2/3 C Skim Milk (or whatever milk you choose)
1 Tbsp Chia Seeds
I then added about 3 chopped strawberries and half a banana. This is what it looked like after I mixed it all together ...
It was slightly runny but I thought it was pretty thick even at this point. The Chia seeds are supposed make the oats thick and creamy over time but I noticed a difference within about 10 minutes.
This morning when I took the oats out of the fridge they were very thick, I topped them with granola.
And here is what they looked like on the spoon.
So overall I liked them. They definitely need something added to add some sweetness. I didn't add anything other than fresh fruit and as long as I got a bite with fresh fruit in it, it was ok, but if not it tasted very bland. Some bloggers said they added a fruit preserve to it when adding fruit, to add sweetness. Some added stevia or syrup and some added honey, but I do not like honey so can't use that one. So basically I think if I found the right add in then this breakfast would be delicious, I just have to find that right combo.
I also think the amounts of oats, yogurt and chia seeds was way too much. This was a HUGE portion, I couldn't even finish it all. I found another recipe with slightly less amounts and I think I will try that tonight. 1/3 C oats, 1/3 C yogurt, 1/2 C milk, 1/2 Tbsp chia seeds. We'll see how that turns out!
I also had my first Kind bar yesterday - and I LOVE IT!! Give these a try, if you haven't already =)
