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 oats that’s ready first thing in the morning!

I decided to make one of my favorite combinations… apples and cinnamon flavored overnight oats (the TYPICAL way I eat oatmeal)! YUM.  I adapted this recipe 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:

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.

Divide rolled oats, vanilla, and chia seeds evenly into two containers (I used canning jars). Divide and add apple mixture evenly (plus any syrup left in skillet) into jars. Fill jars with almond milk (or milk of your choice), until oat mixture is covered.

Stir each jar well, to fully incorporate ingredients. Place a cover on each jar, and place jars in refrigerator and chill overnight.

After refrigerating oats overnight, remove, grab a spoon, and dig into this creamy, flavor-filled, filling breakfast! Unopened jars will keep for 3-4 days in refrigerator.

Hope you will consider making these delicious oats for a quick breakfast! The recipe is easily doubled or tripled.  If you enjoy oatmeal in other forms, you might also enjoy trying my recipes for Banana Bread Baked Oatmeal, Healthy Chocolate Oatmeal, or Apple Cinnamon Steel Cut Oats with Pecans! Have a great day!
