  1. This is a great basic recipe to then go crazy with some fruity toppings on! I love the chia seed addition, why not make them extra thick and delicious! Yay for easy 🙂

    1. Yes!! I was using steel cut oats for a bit, but when I went back to rolled oats I realized I loved them SO MUCH more simply because they were thicker and had more of a chew. So when I added chia seeds to the rolled oats, man was I in for a treat!! Thanks for stopping by Natalie, I appreciate your constant support <3
