Now you’ve worked out your arms while shaking up your breakfast you can pop it in the fridge overnight.
The beauty of our pumpkin pie oats and chia seeds is that you can make them in advance and store them in the fridge for up to 5 days. Be sure to pick an airtight container or, if you don’t have one, be mindful that they won’t stay fresh for as long.
If you do meal prep our overnight oats then give it a good shake before tucking in and add a splash of extra milk if needed. Some like it thiiccccckkk and others not so much so add more to get it just the way you like it.
Can you heat them up?
Absolutely! It’s actually one of our favourite ways to enjoy over night oats. While they’re delicious and creamy straight out the fridge you can pop then in the microwave, oven or on the hob to enjoy hot. 1 minute 30 seconds in the microwave does the job!
