Overnight Oats- An Easy Healthy Breakfast Idea
Overnight oats were a great invention! They can be made in batches ahead of time, and there are so many ways to make them.
Apple cinnamon overnight oats are our new favorite overnight oats recipe. They are a healthy and satisfying breakfast that can be put together quickly. Bake up a batch of apples, combine a simple base of four ingredients in jars and pile on the baked apples for a naturally sweet and satisfying breakfast. You can serve apple cinnamon overnight oats cold or you can warm them up.
Ingredients For Apple Cinnamon Overnight Oats
- Oats- old fashioned oats are preferred, but quick oats will work too which is what I used to make this recipe. They will turn soft faster (no need to wait overnight) and may need an extra splash of water or nut milk before serving them.
- Chia seeds add protein, a little bit of crunch, and they are a good source of omega-3s
- Almond Butter or your favorite nut butter to add a touch of sweetness and protein
- Water or your favorite milk which adds moisture to the oats. when the oats are combined with water, it turns slightly creamy. If you prefer a more creamy texture, use milk.
- Coconut Oil or Butter
- Vanilla paste – I love the flavor that this Taylor and Colledge Vanilla paste adds to the apples
- Maple syrup to add a touch of sweetness
