Meal Prep Tip:
Line up 5 1-cup Mason jars or air-tight containers and portion out all the DRY ingredients and spices. Label each jar with a piece of tape that says: “overnight oats – add 3 tbsp maple and 1 cup mylk”
Then peel, wash and grate 3 large carrots and store in an air-tight container. Label the container with a piece of tape that says: “Overnight oats – ½ cup)
Finally chop 1 ¼ cup of pineapple and store in a container. Label with “Overnight Oats – ¼ cup”
Then, each evening before bed, assemble your overnight oats in a bowl by combining your Mason jar of dry ingredients, prepped carrots & pineapple, maple syrup, and mylk.
