Overnight Oats ~or~ Summer Porrage Recipe

I have never heard of such a thing, The thought of eating much less adding chia seeds to oatmeal was almost a yuk sound to my mind, then someone sent me the recipe from Pinerest and I read it and thought, well maybe I'll give this a try. I made this recipe "Overnight Oats ~or~ Summer Porrage it's called.

From Pepper Lynn
http://www.pepperlynn.com/2012/02/overnight-oats-two-ways/ .

I did NOT put mine into jars, instead I put mine into a covered bowl with lid. This morning, I smashed a sm. banana and added 2 Tbs. of "Simply Fruit jam" to it, then divided into 2 servings, put the lid on one and put it back into the refergator for tomorrow, and gobbled up the other bowl before I took a photo of both of them. I felt this recipe was enough for 2 servings. Wonderful flavor, Great texture, and very satisfying.
