Apple pie overnight oats
As you might know by now, I love overnight oats for breakfast. I’ve shared this overnight oats recipe earlier, which is perfect when you’re on the go when you make it in a plastic container. It’s nice and fresh, so perfect for summer. However, in the winter months, I started to crave something more warming and indulgent. And what is more heartwarming than fresh apple pie? That’s why I thought I’d combine the two, so check this apple pie overnight oats recipe out if you want to wake up with a cozy feeling every day!
- An apple (duh), preferably a sweet one like Pink lady, Gala or Fuji
- Two tablespoons of ground cinnamon
- A tiny squeeze of lemon juice
- A teaspoon of ground ginger
- A tablespoon of honey (or brown sugar, but for health reasons I choose honey)
- A handful of raisins
- Skinny milk or oat milk
How to make it:
This recipe works roughly the same as the other overnight oats recipe, but with different ingredients. So, the night before you need it, you scoop in the oats in the amount you’d like. Then, you add the milk until the oats are almost (but not fully) covered. Throw in the cinnamon, lemon juice, ginger and honey. Mix everything up with a spoon until all the ingredients are nicely divided and flat on the surface of your container. I use plastic containers with lids to put in the fridge, but you could also use open containers or bowl with plastic or beeswax wraps on top. Put the container in the fridge overnight, so the oats can soak up the milk. In the morning, dice your apple into little cubes and add them and raisins to the container. Mix everything up again and you’re good to go!
I prefer this breakfast when I’m on to go or at work, but it’s also a great start of the day when you’re at home. Especially since it’s necessary to prep in advance, it takes no time to prepare in the morning and I can just throw it in my bag easily. You could sprinkle some extra cinnamon on the top or lay down a few thin slices of apple to present it a little nicer. If you’d like to add some protein, you could also throw in some unsweetened protein powder the night before. If you like some extra crunch and fats, you could also easily put in some chia seeds or flax seeds at this point.
