These apple cinnamon overnight oats are the perfect make-ahead breakfast for a chilly fall morning. They are easy to start the night before and amazing to wake up to in the morning.
This recipe is slightly more involved than some of my other overnight oat toppings (see below) but it’s totally worth it. It calls for sautéing the apples before adding them to the oats, but that only takes a minute or two, so it really isn’t hard. You could always cook the apples the night before or even skip that step and throw the apples in raw if you are in a hurry. If you are going to do them raw, I recommend you grate them so you don’t have big chunks of hard apple.
I left these oats sweetened completely by fruit, but feel free to add a drizzle of maple syrup if you feel it needs a little bit extra sweetness. Part of what will determine the amount of syrup is how sweet the apple is and how sweet your tooth is (if you know what I mean).
Have you tried any kind of overnight oats before? What did you think? I’ve been having lots of fun lately trying fun, new toppings and but I would love to know what you like to add to yours. Please comment below and let me know!
