Cooking with Kelly: Overnight Oats in a Jar

I've made overnight oats in a jar before, but I tried a slightly different recipe this morning after the gym. Last night, I took an empty peanut butter jar and filled it with a few items, then added a banana this morning. Bonus: my coworkers think I ate peanut butter for breakfast. It's not too far from the truth, some days.

Overnight Oats in a Jar Recipe
1/4 cup cooked quinoa
1/3 cup old fashioned oats
1 Tablespoon chia seeds
1/2 cup water
1 Tablespoon almond milk
1 banana

Add all the ingredients to the jar the night before and seal, then refrigerate. When you're ready to eat it, add the chopped up banana.

I tried overnight oats in a jar once and couldn't get over the consistency and the taste of the cold oats. Maybe there's a secret I'm missing...
