I didn't follow the directions exactly yet it came out delicious and I've made it a couple times now. I mixed things directly in 2 separate mason jars. I skipped steps 3 and 4, added ~1TB lemon juice and 1 tsp chia seeds to each jar. I didn't have old fashioned oats on hand. Instead I used 1/4 cup steel cut oats and 1/4 cup oat bran in each jar. I also went heavy on the lavender (1 tsp in each) because that's the ingredient I was craving. Definitely worth making again when I want a yummy breakfast I can grab on the go.
