Tips | Notes:

STORAGE: Can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Perfect for meal prep for the week!

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.

SERVING SIZE: This recipe makes enough overnight oats to fit in 2 medium-sized mason jars OR 4 mini-sized mason jars. For twice the serving size----double the ingredient amounts.
