How Long To Store - Overnight oats can store for around three days. It all depends on ingredients used. How to Eat - You can eat your oats cold or warm them up! Depending on the flavors and ingredients you might find some you enjoy cold and others warmed up offers a richer flavor. Fruit - With any oat recipe you can use fresh or frozen fruit. Just know that frozen fruit will release more juice as it thaws, but it will still be delicious. Milk - Any recipe you can use any type of milk. Regular milk, plant-based, lactose free, etc. Lemon Zest - Learn how to make dried lemon peel to use in replace of lemon zest in recipes! Peanut Butter - Feel free to replace any recipe that calls for peanut butter with any type of nut butter. Or you can use regular peanut butter that is creamy or crunchy.Don't Want to Add in Yogurt - You can leave out the yogurt. If you do, increase the ratio of oats to milk to be 1:1
