    1. There was an article online suggesting that they could last 5-7 days. . I’ve made enough for 3-4 days and they were fine. I rarely eat any leftovers past that point. I am somewhat cautious about spoilage. I’d say just make sure the ingredients haven’t started to separate.

    1. If you want to make the oats without having to finish them in the morning just make sure not to put in anything that will go brown. I’d skip anything like fresh banana or apples. If you are using dry fruits or nuts, you can can prepare the entire thing in the evening. That way in the morning all you have to do it eat it. Chia pudding also makes a great breakfast, as does protein balls. If you have a juicer, some fresh juices will also last overnight. Hope that helps.
