Apple Pie Overnight Oats are flavored with apples, cinnamon, maple syrup, plus toasted pecan pieces. It’s a healthy and delicious way to start the day.
A sprinkling of chia seeds not only adds flavor, but gives the oatmeal more of a pudding-like texture. These Apple Pie Overnight Oats have lots of fiber and protein as well as vitamins and minerals.
What is Overnight Oatmeal?
Overnight Oatmeal is oatmeal that is soaked overnight, typically in some kind of milk and yogurt. I was kind of late to get on the overnight oatmeal bandwagon and have only recently tried it. At first I thought the idea of cold oatmeal was unappealing. But I was wrong. It is so, so good. The oats aren’t cooked at all but they get wonderfully soft and easy to digest after being in the refrigerator overnight.
I love breakfasts like this one that can be made ahead. I don’t always love cooking breakfast in the morning and will sometimes forgo breakfast rather then make something.
Oatmeal is one of my favorite cold weather breakfasts but because this oatmeal is served cold, it is great for the summer months.
Tips for Making Overnight Apple Pie Oatmeal:
- Be sure to use old-fashioned oats for this recipe. They are much healthier than quick-cooking oats and will keep you full longer.
- These oats will keep in the fridge for 3 to 5 days and the recipe can easily be doubled to make 4 servings.
- I use almond milk, but you can use any type. Cashew milk, Coconut Milk, Soy Milk, or Oat Milk would all work.
