With May coming to an end, I’m super excited for it to be officially Summer! I am imagining all of the awesome Summer flavors that come with this sunny season. But for starters, I had to share this Overnight Oats recipes with you guys!

I can admit that this was my first time going down the ‘overnight oats’ route. While this has been a trend for some time, I honestly was a bit concerned that I wouldn’t fully enjoy it. However, to my surprise, keeping them overnight is AMAZING!

Tips & Tricks

STORAGE: Can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Perfect for meal prep for the week!
TOASTED PECANS: Add chopped pecans to a baking sheet and toasting them in the oven (400 degrees Fahrenheit) for 5-10 minutes, tossing them halfway to avoid browning on one side.
NUT BUTTER: If preferred, you can always substitute peanut butter with Almond butter, SunButter (perfect for allergy-free needs!), Tahini (Sesame Seed Butter), Hazelnut Butter, etc.
SWEETENER: Instead of maple syrup, you can simply use Agave or add an additional 1/2 cup mashed bananas to oats as a sweetener.
