Serve warm: This recipe is best when eaten warm. To reheat, you can microwave or in the oven at a low temperature.

Don’t overbake: Ensure you don’t overbake the oatmeal to not get too dry.

Refrigerate leftovers: Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 4 days, and reheat the oatmeal in the oven at a low temperature.
