Description

Indulge in the delicious flavors of apple pie with these easy overnight oats! Naturally sweetened and perfect for meal prep. Try them today!

Ingredients

For the apples

  • ¾ cup sweet apple cut into small bite-size pieces, peeling is optional for less texture / we prefer Honeycrisp
  • ¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup (or 80g applesauce)
  • 1 pinch sea salt

For the apple pie overnight oats

  • ¾ cup unsweetened soy milk or unsweetened plain almond milk or other dairy-free milk of choice
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • ½ tablespoon maple syrup
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoon almond butter or creamy unsalted cashew butter or ¼ cup toasted almonds
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ cup rolled oats gluten-free as needed
  • teaspoon ground allspice”
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger

Optional

  • 1 scoop protein powder

Instructions

Prepare the Apples:

  • In a small saucepan, combine chopped apples, cinnamon, maple syrup, and salt. Mix well to evenly distribute the cinnamon.
  • Turn the heat to low and cover the saucepan. Cook the apples, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes or until they are soft and tender.
  • Remove the lid and increase the heat to medium. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly, to evaporate some of the juices and create a syrup around the apples.
  • Once most of the liquid has evaporated, turn off the heat and set the apples aside.

Prepare the Oats:

  • In a small bowl or liquid measuring cup, combine almond milk, chia seeds, maple syrup, cinnamon, nut butter, and vanilla. Mix well.
  • Add the oats to the mixture and stir until well-combined.

Assemble the Overnight Oats:

  • Divide the cooked apple mixture evenly between two small mason jars or bowls with lids, placing about a quarter of the apples in the bottom of each container.
  • Pour half of the oat mixture into each container as the middle layer.
  • Top the oats with the remaining cooked apples, dividing them evenly between the containers.

Refrigerate Overnight

  • Seal the jars or bowls with lids and place them in the refrigerator overnight, or for at least 6 hours, to allow the flavors to meld and the oats to soften.

Serve and Enjoy

  • Serve at room temperature!
Notes:
  1. Storage: Overnight oats can be stored in the refrigerator for 2-3 days, but they are best consumed within the first 12-24 hours for optimal freshness.
  2. Freezing: These overnight oats are not suitable for freezing.
  3. Protein Powder: The nutritional information provided does not include the scoop of protein powder. If you choose to add protein powder, the meal will contain 14.03g of fat, 44.09g of carbs, and 23.29g of protein. Here are the corresponding percentages: Fat %: 32.57% (Range: 20-35%), Carb %: 45.5% (Range: 45-65%), Protein %: 24% (Range: 20-35%).

Tips & Tricks

  • Gluten-Free: If you have gluten sensitity or allergy make sure to check that the oats is gluten-free.
  • Batch Cooking: Though these overnight oats are not good for freezing, you can pre-cook the apples and store them in individual portions make it easier and faster to assembly at night.

Variations and Ingredient Substitutions

Tailor your recipe to your taste preferences and dietary needs with these simple swaps and additions:

  • Seasonal Fruits: Swap out apples for seasonal fruits like pears or peaches using the same cooking instructions as for the apples.
  • Nut Butter: Try using different nut or seed butter such as cashew, peanut, sunflower seed, or tahini. If you have nut allergies, there are plenty of alternatives to choose from.
  • Sweeteners: You can totally omit the maple syrup or swap with applesauce or honey if you’re not vegan. Other great choices are brown sugar, coconut sugar, or date syrup.
  • Spice Mix: Add a dash of cardamom, ginger, or pumpkin pie spice. If you opt for pumpkin pie spice, consider omitting the allspice and nutmeg. Since you have the opportunity to experiment with spices every night, I suggest varying them gradually until you find the combination that perfectly suits your taste and mood.
  • Milk Alternatives: Choose any non-dairy milk you have on hand for your oats. Embrace sustainability by using what’s already in your fridge. While almond and coconut milk are popular choices, soy milk is an excellent option for increasing protein content.
  • Protein Boost: Make your overnight oats more satisfying by adding a scoop of protein powder or Greek yogurt. Not only does this boost the protein content, but it also adds a creamy texture to your oats.
  • Dried Fruits and Nuts: Add shredded coconut, chopped nuts, or dried fruit. Keep in mind that adding dried fruits increases the calorie count, so consider omitting maple syrup if you’re watching your calorie intake. Additionally, 1/4 cup of almonds is roughly equivalent to 2 tablespoons of almond butter, providing around 200 calories.

Storing and Make Ahead Instructions

STORAGE INSTRUCTIONS

  • Refrigerator: Store leftover apple pie overnight oats in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days. If you want to add any additional toppings such as nuts, seeds, or fresh fruit, add them just before serving.
  • Freezing:  I don’t recommend freezing overnight oats as it will alter their texture and taste. In my experience, they’re best enjoyed fresh from the fridge, and I never wasted any of them as they rarely last longer than a couple of days!
  • Reheating: Though you can eat overnight oats cold, if you want to heat them gently heat them on the stovetop or microwave adding a splash of milk until warmed through, stirring occasionally.

MAKE AHEAD INSTRUCTIONS

  • Make Ahead: Portion the oats into individual jars or containers for easy grab-and-go breakfasts throughout the week.
