Initially I made this recipe from Taste of Home exactly as written. Since then, I've made a couple of the variations given, and slightly adapted ones as well. I use almond milk instead of regular milk, and greek yogurt. I am not a fan of walnuts, so sometimes I use pecans, sometimes I use granola. It's great with either honey or maple syrup. I also add a teaspoon of chia seeds, and a dash of cinnamon.
I like to layer the ingredients because it looks pretty :) I always use Flahavan's Irish Oats, they're my favorite. This version I made, I used blueberries from my yard, strawberries, honey, cinnamon, chia.
And the next morning I enjoyed it out on the patio. Thank you so much to June T. for sharing her recipe! Do you have an amazing recipe you'd like to submit to Taste of Home? Follow this link and learn how! Want to apply to be a Volunteer Field Editor? Check out the requirements and apply here.
