Overnight Yogurt and Oat Muesli with Cherry Chia Jam

Muesli is the original make-ahead morning meal. Oats are soaked with fruit, yogurt, and nuts, “cooking” while you sleep. Here, it’s paired with a jam made with the thickening power of chia seeds—no cooking required! This creamy, sweet-tart breakfast will keep you going until lunchtime.
