Why This Recipe Works:

  • This breakfast recipe takes inspiration from a fantastically delicious dessert that we all know and love.
  • Overnight oats are a super convenient and delicious way to start your day.

Are overnight oats healthy?

  • Absolutely! Oatmeal is one of the healthiest foods you can eat. It’s loaded with fiber, magnesium, protein, and other nutrients. It’s super filling too.
  • Soaking the oats overnight helps with digestibility!

How To Make Apple Crisp Overnight Oats:

1. First, to a mason jar, add the “Base” ingredients and stir.

2. Next, add the “Apple Filling” ingredients to a microwave safe bowl, stir, and then microwave on high for one minute.

FYI – If you like your apples a bit on the softer side, give those apples another stir and then warm for an additional 30 seconds.  For me, I like my apples to have a little bit of bite left to them, so I stick with just the one minute.

3.  Then, take that “Apple Filling” and add it to the jar without stirring.

4. Place your mason jar filled with apple-y goodness in your refrigerator and allow it to chill and do it’s thang for at least 6 hours…  In fact, this jar of deliciousness will keep for about 5 days or so.

5. Just before eating, add your “Final topping.” (See ingredients.)

And that’s it!  Your apple crisp overnight oats are officially ready for your taste bud’s enjoyment.

Top Tips for Making Apple Crisp Overnight Oats:

  • I find that these overnight oats taste best when made in mason jars (it makes layering a lot easier), however, any bowl, mug or drinking glass will do.
  • If you want to have breakfast for multiple days, double or triple this recipe so you have breakfast ready to go when you need it.
  • For this recipe I like to use Gala or Fuji apples, but any type of apple will work just fine.
