Wrap it up or put your lid on once mixed and put it into the fridge for a couple hours (preferably overnight). The longer you can wait, the thicker your oats will be!

Remove it form the fridge and top it with whatever you want. I usually top mine with a broken up peanut butter cup, some cocoa powder, and fat free whipped cream.

    I’ve had this a few times and it’s a favorite of mine. Super tasty and keeps me full for a long time. I haven’t tried it with any toppings yet, but I’m sure it would take it to the next level. Incredible that something that tastes this good is healthy. Feels like a cheat code. Thanks for sharing.
