I feel that once September hits and Fall is in full swing, we all turn our attention to pumpkins. Lest we not forget that it is also the start of APPLE season! The perfect time to whip up apple pie overnight oats!
It’s basically having an apple pie without the hard work. I can definitely get behind that logic. I am definitely not a baker (as well evidenced on this blog – I am more of a savory chick through and through) so if you tell me that I can have the flavors of apple pie for breakfast (or dessert) without going through the efforts of making an apple pie? I am 100% SOLD.
This apple pie overnight oats recipe is very similar to my coconut latte overnight oats recipe but with the obvious slight variations. If you haven’t made my homemade apple pie spice before, get on it! You can absolutely buy some from the store but my version makes a ton more and I use it all season long. Seriously, great thing to make in a batch because the possibilities of using apple pie spice during apple season is endless! So many recipes call for it and in fact, a bunch of my apple recipes call for it, too.
Overnight recipes are always a favorite of mine and I feel like they always change over time. It used to be overnight oats in the slow cooker and while you can still do that, overnight oats in the fridge are the next new thing. Both yield great results either way and whichever method you choose, you will be happy you did. I hope you try this fridge version, though, because there is nothing better than waking up in the morning to an effortless breakfast already put together. The slow cooker one is great, too, but I prefer not waking up in the middle of the night because of the cinnamon smell permeating through my house ;)
The apple pie flavor without the actual effort to make the apple pie to get the flavor! Apple pie overnight oats are yet another great flavor of oats to add to your morning routine!
- Add oats to a large bowl.
- Whisk in the rest of the ingredients and make sure there are no clumps throughout.
- Cover bowl with plastic wrap or lid and put in the refrigerator overnight.
- The next morning, stir the mixture and scoop as much as you want out into a bowl.
- Top with your favorite toppings and more apples!
You may heat it up, if desired, but it's typically eaten cold. If the mixture is too thick for you the next morning, add some more milk to thin it out. Topping suggestions: chia seeds, granola, nuts, dried fruit, fresh fruit, hemp hearts, and more!
