Questions about Overnight Oats
What else can I add to these overnight oats? The beauty of overnight oats is you can add whatever you like to them. That way you’ll always find every bowl as delicious as the last. Some toppings are best sprinkled just before serving and others can tolerate the fridge overnight, totally depends on the topping you want to add.
