Instructions

  1. In a 12-16 ounce mason jar, pour in the milk.
  2. Add oats and your all-natural sweetener of choice (pure maple syrup or honey).
  3. Add in the remaining fruit and add-ins (except bananas, which you will add right before eating so they don’t turn brown and mushy).
  4. Screw on the lid tightly and shake. Set in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours and up to 3-5 days.
  5. You have two choices how to serve them:

Serve Cold: Shake the jar. Open and add in the bananas (if they are in your recipe). Stir in a little extra milk if it’s too thick and more sweetener if you’d like. Grab a spoon and eat your oats cold. This is the perfect solution for those mornings when you’re on the run!

Serve Warm: This is our preferred way to serve overnight oats. Shake the jar and then remove the lid. Warm the oats in the microwave for about 45 seconds. Stir. Add in the sliced bananas (if they are in your recipe) and more milk or sweetener, as needed. Warm up even more, if desired.
