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.
Mix remaining ingredients: Add oats, milk, yogurt, maple syrup, vanilla and cinnamon into a dish with a lid (a mason jar works great!).
Stir in apples: Add 1/4 cup of the cinnamon apples to the oat mixture and stir. Place lid on jar and shake to combine a bit more.
Refrigerate: Place in the fridge overnight (or just 30-60 minutes if you’re making these the morning of).
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.
- Milk: I like using unsweetened vanilla almond milk, but any type of milk will work.
- Yogurt: You can use regular or non-dairy yogurt. I like using plain, but I recently tried using Siggi’s vanilla & cinnamon yogurt in this recipe and it was amazing. Highly recommend!
- Maple syrup: Honey or another natural liquid sweetener will work as well. If you want to reduce the sugar in this recipe, feel free to use a sugar alternative like stevia or monk fruit
