You’ll love this easy, delicious recipe for creamy apple cinnamon overnight oats, with cinnamon and pecans! Make them in 10 minutes, refrigerate the filled jars overnight, and enjoy a wonderfully creamy breakfast treat waiting for you in the morning!
I’ve been really having fun trying different flavor combinations for overnight oats recently, and have already made Banana Coconut, Strawberry Coconut, and Chocolate Banana. All of them are so good! I love the convenience of taking a few minutes at night to mix them up, and then waking up to, and eating, a creamy jar of deliciously flavored apple overnight oats that’s ready first thing in the morning!
I decided to make one of my favorite combinations… apple overnight oats with cinnamon (the TYPICAL way I eat oatmeal)! YUM. This recipe was adapted from a few of the other oatmeal recipes I’ve made, and just added the ingredients I wanted to it.
I also added a few chopped pecans (you can substitute walnuts), for extra crunch, and some chia seeds which really help to fill you up… and they turned out REALLY good! Here’s how easy it is to make them:

How To Make Apple Cinnamon Overnight Oats
Start by cooking diced apples in a bit of water, brown sugar, and cinnamon in a skillet on medium heat, until apples have slightly softened, and the liquid has reduced slightly in volume (about 5 minutes). Stir occasionally.
During the last minute of cooking, add the chopped pecans. Once apples have softened slightly, remove skillet from heat.
Time To Fill the Jars!
Divide rolled oats, vanilla, and chia seeds evenly into two containers (I used canning jars). Divide and add apple cinnamon overnight oats evenly (plus any syrup left in skillet) into jars.
Fill the jars with almond milk (or milk of your choice), until oat mixture is covered.
Stir each jar well, to fully incorporate all of the ingredients. Place a cover on each jar, and place jars in refrigerator and chill overnight.
After refrigerating the apple cinnamon overnight oats while you slept, remove them from the refrigerator when ready to eat.
Grab a spoon, and dig into this creamy, flavor-filled, filling breakfast! Unopened jars of apple cinnamon overnight oats will keep for up to 3-4 days in refrigerator.
Hope you will consider making these delicious apple cinnamon overnight oats for a quick breakfast! The recipe is easily doubled or tripled, and I am confident you’ll enjoy this yummy treat. Have a GREAT day!
