    • That’s amazing news! Thanks so much for sharing. This overnight oatmeal is the one recipe I make over and over again. I love overnight oatmeal. It’s the perfect for portion control. I hope you’re family loves this recipe as much as I do! 🙂

    • That sounds like a good and tasty plan Cherie. This is one of my favorite overnight oatmeal recipes. Enjoy!

      • This happened to me too, I used fresh pineapple, no sugar, and plain yogurt but added vanilla and almond extract. The next day it’s sour and bitter. I make overnight oats all the time but have never used pineapple or yogurt. So weird and such a let down since I made 4 jars for the week 🙁

        • It must have something to do with the fresh pineapple Ashley. I only use canned and this has never happened to me. I’m sorry you lost all that oatmeal. This is one of my favorite recipes. I hope you will try it again with canned pineapple.
