Tips | Notes:

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.
