Eat dessert for breakfast with these healthy apple pie overnight oats. You’ll love the cozy cinnamon apple flavor and that they can be made ahead of time.
- 1/2 cup chopped apple (about 1/2 a large apple)
- 1 teaspoon maple syrup
- pinch of cinnamon
- 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
- 1/2 –3/4 cup unsweetened vanilla dairy-free milk (almond, cashew, coconut, etc.)
- 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt or coconut yogurt
- 2 teaspoons maple syrup, honey or your favorite sweetener
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (or apple pie spice)
- toppings: cinnamon apples, nut butter, chopped nuts, chia or hemp seeds
- Prep cinnamon apples: add chopped apple pieces, maple syrup and cinnamon in a small microwave-safe bowl. Stir together to coat apples. Heat for 30 – 60 seconds, until apples have softened a bit and look similar to baked apples. Let cool and reserve 1/4 cup of the apples to use as a topping.
Meanwhile add oats, milk, yogurt, maple syrup, vanilla and cinnamon into a dish with a lid (a mason jar works great!). Stir ingredients together and add 1/4 cup of the cinnamon apples. Place lid on jar and shake to combine a bit more. Place in the fridge overnight (or just 30-60 minutes if you’re making these the morning of).
To serve: Remove lid from jar, add more yogurt or almond milk if the mixture seems too thick. Top with extra 1/4 cup apples and your favorite overnight oat toppings. I love adding a little nut butter or chopped nuts.
Enjoy the oats straight from the jar or pour into a bowl.
