How do I store my overnight oats?

Can I substitute almond milk?
Sure! Any milk or milk alternative will work perfectly for these overnight oats.
I like my oatmeal warm. Can I warm it up in the morning?
To warm up your oats, simply microwave them for 45-60 seconds before eating. Just remove the lid and make sure there’s some room at the top of your jar – microwaving your oatmeal can cause it to expand a little.
