Apple Pie Overnight Oats is easily made in minutes the night before giving you a delicious and healthy breakfast as soon as you wake up!
Mornings can be pretty hectic around here between feeding my toddler and walking out the door to his preschool and diving right into my busy work day, which is why I love making overnight oats! I can literally throw all the ingredients together in just 5 minutes the night before and wake up the next day to the most delicious breakfast. Quick, easy and no cleaning required. What is not to love??
This recipe is one of my favorites because it legitimately tastes like FALL in a jar. Oatmeal Apple Pie made with whole-grain oats, crushed apple, chia seeds and warm spices, all soaked in almond milk for the perfect morning breakfast that’s also vegan, gluten-free and loaded with all the good stuff for to you! It’s also a great post-workout meal and even your kids will love it!
Here’s what you’ll need
- Rolled oats – I used old fashioned whole grain rolled oats for this recipe, just make sure they are certified gluten free if you are making GF overnight oats
- Crushed apple – the best part of this whole recipe! I used Honeycrisp because of that wonderful sweet/sweet flavor, but any kind of apple will work
- Almond milk – I used unsweetened almond milk, but any kind of milk will work in this recipe for soaking the oats. You can also add some unsweetened applesauce for extra apple flavor.
- maple syrup – Naturally sweetens oats and tastes amazing with all the warm fall spices! You can also use honey or another natural sweetener of your choice
- Vanilla extract – the perfect flavor boost!
- chia seeds – I love adding chia seeds because not only do they absorb liquid and add great texture, but they also add extra fiber and protein!
- Spices – delicious combination of cinnamon and nutmeg, you can also use apple pie spice!
How to make Overnight Oatmeal Apple Pie
The best thing about making overnight oats is that there is absolutely no COOKING involved. Just mix all the ingredients the night before in a bowl or jar, cover and let soak overnight. In the morning, give it a good stir and you have a delicious breakfast ready! Just remember that anything you add to these oats will be absorbed overnight, so you’ll want to add all of your fun ingredients right before eating. These oats taste great right out of the cold fridge, but heating them up in the microwave makes them taste so cozy, similar to oatmeal or warm apple pie! Recommended 10/10.
Let’s talk about toppings!
The toppings and combinations are the best part of overnight oats! So many fun ways to get creative with your breakfast and really turn up the flavor. Here are some of my favorite ingredients to add to my oats:
- Fresh or dried fruit – for this recipe I mixed in a grated apple, but you can also add slices of banana, assorted berries or even dried fruit like blueberries, raisins, apricots, etc.
- Nut butter – I love to add some creamy nut butter to my oats like peanut butter or almond butter, but any type of nut butter will work
- Nuts and seeds – This adds a nice crunch to the oats and you can use almonds, walnuts, sunflower seeds, hemp seeds, shredded coconut, I mean there are so many options!
- granola – This is one of my favorite ingredients to add because of the crunch and flavor it adds and I love using my super easy Maple Cinnamon Granola recipe that tastes amazing with these fall flavors!
- Dolls – aside from the nut butters, I’ve also topped my oats with a dollop of chia seed jam, homemade caramel sauce or you can even add some Greek yogurt or whipped cream (now we’re getting into territory dessert and I’m no crazy about it)
- chocolate – and since I’m not crazy, this can also be a delicious dessert, sometimes I like to add some nutrient-dense cacao nibs or my low-sugar, low-carb chocolate chips.
Preparation and storage
The best thing about overnight oats is that it can last up to 4 to 5 days in your fridge, making them perfect for meal prep! I like to mix it all up and store it in a wide mouth jar that has an airtight, tight lid. It’s the perfect portion and you can even double or triple the recipe if you plan to enjoy it during the week. Now since this particular recipe has grated apple in it, I suggest you enjoy it for the first two days, but if you don’t add fresh fruit, it will definitely last 4-5 days! If the oats seem too thick after a few days, you can just add a splash of milk right before serving.
