INGREDIENTS


APPLES

  • 3/4 cup crisp, sweet apple, cut into small bite-size pieces (peeling is optional for less texture // we prefer Honeycrisp)

  • 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon

  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup

  • 1 pinch sea salt

OVERNIGHT OATS

  • 3/4 cup unsweetened plain almond milk (or sub other dairy-free milk of choice)

  • 1 Tbsp chia seeds

  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup

  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

  • 2 Tbsp creamy unsalted cashew or almond butter

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats (certified gluten-free as needed)


INSTRUCTIONS


APPLES:

  1. To a small saucepan, add chopped apples, cinnamon, maple syrup, and salt and mix to evenly distribute the cinnamon.

  2. Turn heat on low and cover. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes or until the apples are soft and tender. Remove the lid, turn the heat up to medium, and cook for 2-3 more minutes, stirring constantly, to evaporate some of the juices and create a nice syrup around the apples. Once most of the liquid is gone, turn off the heat and set aside.

OATS:

  1. In a small bowl or liquid measuring cup, mix the almond milk, chia seeds, maple syrup, cinnamon, nut butter, and vanilla. Add the oats and stir until well-combined.

  2. Get two small mason jars or small bowls with lids. Place about a quarter of the cooked apple mixture into the bottom of each container, add half the oat mixture to each as your middle layer, then divide and place the rest of the cooked apples on top of the oats. Place in the refrigerator overnight, or for at least 6 hours.


Enjoy chilled or at room temperature. Overnight oats will keep in the refrigerator for 2-3 days, though best within the first 12-24 hours in our experience. Not freezer friendly.
