HOW LONG DO OVERNIGHT OATS KEEP?
Overnight oats will keep for about 2 – 3 days in the refrigerator. They are at their best quality though, if eaten within 12 – 24 hours.

Mason jars are a good choice to make them and store them in, but not necessary if you don’t have any. Just make sure that they are in a jar with a tight fitting lid.

CAN OVERNIGHT OATS BE HEATED?
If you prefer to eat your oats warm, just heat them in the morning in a microwave. If you don’t have a microwave or prefer not to use one, just add your oats to a small pot and heat on the stovetop, stirring until it’s as warm as you like it.

You can then add any toppings like fruit and nuts and enjoy!
