Apple Pie Overnight Oats

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: overnight oats are one of my favorite breakfasts. This wonderful recipe is filled with warm spices the taste buds will love!

My kids love overnight oats, too. And they get involved in this make-ahead breakfast!

They are such fans of making their own overnight oats mixture or simply helping me mix up a batch.

I love that we can make it in advance and simply open up a mason jar in the morning and breakfast is waiting for us.

Having breakfast prepped ahead helps to make busy mornings run way more smoothly.

Do your kids love to help you in the kitchen? Here are 100 ways to get kids involved in the kitchen.

Cooked apple or fresh apple?

This recipe can be made using cooked cinnamon apples, or freshly chopped apples.

Both are delicious and give you a totally different feel and cozy flavors.

If you choose to stew your apples, dice them up, and add cinnamon, and a little water into a small pot. Cook the apples over medium heat until the apples have softened. Add more water as needed so they don’t try it out.

If you want to go with the fresh apple option for a nice crunch, follow the recipe as it’s written below!

Best storage containers

You can store cinnamon apple oats in basically any storage container that you have on hand. I prefer to use glass storage containers.

I will either make a large quadrupled batch to feed my family, and then use a pyrex storage container, or I’ll make individual servings and store it in a mason jar overnight.

Mason jars are great if you need to meal prep this and take it on the go.

Substitutions

Below you’ll find a list of substitutions that will work well in this easy breakfast recipe. 

If you try something different out, please leave a comment below letting us all know how it turned out!

Applesauce – To replace the applesauce, you can use mashed banana or canned pumpkin puree.

Pure maple syrup – Honey is a good substitute for maple syrup in this recipe. Brown sugar will work as well.

Almond butter – Use your favorite nut or seed butter here in place of the almond butter.

Rolled oats – Old-fashioned oats and quick oats both work well in this recipe too. Steel-cut oats and instant oats are not good substitutes.

Chia seeds – Chia seed helps to absorb the liquid and give the oats a creamy texture. You can use ground flaxseed in place of the chia seed but reduce the liquid down by 25%.

Cinnamon – Use apple pie spice or pumpkin pie spice in place of the cinnamon for an even more delicious spice.

Almond milk – Use your favorite non-dairy milk in place of the almond milk. Try oat milk, cashew milk, or light coconut milk. Regular dairy milk will work here as well.

Collagen peptides – For extra protein, substitute vanilla whey protein powder for the collagen peptides.

Hey Kristie! I typically eat them cold and serve it that way for my kids too. But you can totally heat it up!
