Notes

Storage: Overnight oats can be stored in the fridge for up to 5 days. This makes it an ideal breakfast meal prep to make on Sunday night for the week.
Substitutes: For best results, follow the recipe as is. However here are some common substitutes that would work well in this recipe.
  • Make it vegan: Use plant-based milk, plant-based yogurt, and maple syrup for sweetener
  • Make it gluten-free: Use certified gluten-free oats
  • Make it sugar-free: Omit the sweetener all together or used mashed or pureed fruit in the base recipe
* Please note the nutrition label does not include any toppings, just the base ingredients and my add-ins.
