Worth mentioning is this jar of Smucker's Fruit & Honey Fruit Spread. I searched and searched for the blueberry jam called for in this recipe and this was the closest thing I could find. It seemed like a healthy option and I do love honey so I decided to give it a go and I absolutely loved it! I think it was absolutely perfect for these overnight oats and would be equally great served over yogurt with some granola, on any kind of breakfast bread, or perhaps stirred into oatmeal. It is lovely!
*I purchased the fruit spread with my own money and was not paid or compensated in any way to review it. Just felt the need to share it's deliciousness!
Blueberry Chia Overnight Oats in Jars
Adapted from You Have It Made
by Ellie Krieger
2/3 cup whole natural almonds, divided
1-1/2 cups milk
1 cup Greek yogurt
1/3 cup all-fruit blueberry jam*
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
2 tablespoons chia seeds
2 cups blueberries, divided
Toast the almonds in a dry skillet over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until lightly browned and fragrant, 3 to 5 minutes. Allow to cool slightly, then chop them coarsely.
In a medium bowl, stir together the milk, yogurt, jam, and vanilla. Stir in the oats, chia seeds, and half of the almonds. Then stir in 1 cup of the blueberries.
Divide the mixture evenly among four 12-ounce (1-1/2 cup) jars. Top each with the remaining blueberries and almonds. Cover tightly and refrigerate overnight or at least 8 hours. Serve chilled or at room temperature. (Note: the nuts on top will soften a bit in the refrigerator. If you want them extra-crunchy, sprinkle them on right before serving.)
Will keep up to 4 days in the refrigerator.
