Some great oatmeal topping ideas:
Yogurt – Make your overnight oats ultra-creamy Sweetener – Pure maple syrup, coconut sugar, organic pure cane brown sugar, or date sugar. Fruits –Fresh strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries. Sliced banana, diced apple, or applesauce is great too. If using dried fruit, stick with unsweetened options. Nuts & Seeds – Use any combo of pecans, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, almonds, hemp, and chia seeds.
