1/3 cup banana, sliced
1 teaspoon chia seeds (optional)

Add Quaker Oats to your container of choice and pour in milk and vanilla. Add a layer of blueberries and then a layer of banana slices. Top with a drizzle of honey and, if desired, chia seeds. Place in fridge and enjoy in the morning or a few hours later!
