Storage tips
You can make jars of almond joy overnight oats up to 3 days ahead of time. Keep in mind the longer the oats sit in the refrigerator, the thicker they will become, so you'll need to add extra liquid before eating them.
You can also prepare the dry ingredients ahead of time and make meal prep overnight oat freeze packs. When you're ready to whip up a jar of oatmeal, pour the ingredients into a mason jar, add the liquid, and refrigerate.
