Why We Like It
Apple pie spiced flavors in overnight oats! Perfect for a grab-and-go breakfast or snack, plus overnight oatmeal is ideal for serving overnight guests. The best part...it's so easy!
Prepare the Oatmeal:
1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
1/2 cup almond milk (or milk of your choice, such as skim, 2% or soy)
1/2 tsp lemon juice
2 Tbsp raw pecans (chopped)
1 Tbsp pure maple syrup (or honey)
1 Tbsp dried chia seeds
1/2 cup apple (about 1 small apple, chopped, no need to peel)
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice (or combination of ground cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice)
Place in a medium size bowl and stir to combine. Place in mason jars (enough for 2 half pint jars) if desired. Store covered in the refrigerator overnight.
Serve and enjoy!
If needed, add more milk in the morning to reach your desired consistency.
Because chia seeds absorb so much liquid, they help give overnight oats a great texture! Chia seeds don’t really add any flavor, but in addition to helping provide a great texture, they are a nutritional powerhouse.
You can use steel cut oats instead of the rolled oats, but the oatmeal will have a chewier texture. Try using half steel cut and half rolled oats for a great texture combination!
