~ Directions ~

Combine all ingredients in a mason jar or other sealed container. Let set in the refrigerator overnight, or at least for a few hours before enjoying. Top with a sprinkle of coconut and chow down!



Oats will keep in a sealed container for several days, so you are OK to prepare the beginning of the week for your weekday breakfasts. I always prepare 5 days worth of overnight oats on Sunday afternoon so I have a quick grab-and-go breakfast for the busy weekdays.

Note: The rum extract contains little to no alcohol content, as it is only concentrated rum flavor. I've used it in these oats to give them more of a strawberry daiquiri-like taste. If you do not like the taste of rum, you can leave it out. But no need to be concerned that you're having spiked oats for breakfast.
