What Are Overnight Oats?
Overnight oats are made from combining whole grain old-fashioned oats with a liquid like almond milk and other delicious ingredients like nut butter, yogurt, or fruit. The oats soak in the liquid and soften overnight which creates the perfect creamy texture.

Do You Have to Cook Overnight Oats?
Nope! The beauty of overnight oats is that they do not have to be cooked on the stovetop like traditional oats. I prefer to eat mine cold or at room temperature, but you can also heat them up a bit on the stove or in the microwave if you prefer them to be a bit warm.

Apple Pie Overnight Oats Ingredients
(full recipe ingredients and instructions are included in the recipe card, below)

Greek Yogurt: these oats get their thick, creamy consistency in part from Greek yogurt. It also adds a bit of protein to the oats to help make them more filling and satisfying. I prefer to use full-fat or whole milk yogurt but non-fat or low-fat will also work.

Shredded Apple: crisp shredded apple is the star of the show in these oats. I recommend using pink lady or honey crisp apples.

Almond Milk: this is my go-to liquid of choice whenever making overnight oats but there are so many options. I’ve included a few below if you’re curious.

Vanilla Extract: a little vanilla goes a long way to help give these oats that perfect apple pie flavor.

Almond Butter: helps to add a bit of healthy fats and even more flavor to the oats.

Maple Syrup: be sure to use pure maple syrup and not pancake syrup to sweeten these oats.

Old Fashioned Oats: rolled oats, often called old-fashioned oats, are the whole-grain base of this recipe. If you have a gluten allergy be sure to grab oats that have been specifically labeled as gluten free.

Chia Seeds: these add an extra dose of nutrition as well as help with the consistency of the overnight oats.

Cinnamon: you can’t have apple pie without cinnamon and the same is true for these oats. Plenty of ground cinnamon helps to give the oats that classic flavor.

Ingredient Swaps and Additions
Nut Butter – feel free to swap the almond butter for cashew butter, pecan butter, or your favorite nut butter of choice. You are welcome to use peanut butter but it will change the overall flavor of the recipe a bit.
Maple Syrup – you can easily swap the maple syrup for honey if you like. If you want your overnight oats on the sweeter side then you can add a bit more maple syrup or honey to the recipe.
Greek yogurt – you can easily make these overnight oats vegan and dairy free by substituting the Greek yogurt with your favorite dairy free Greek yogurt (like coconut milk or almond milk yogurt) in this recipe.
Protein Powder – to increase the protein content in the oats, feel free to add a scoop of your favorite protein powder. Plain or vanilla would be delicious!
Milk – this recipe calls for almond milk but you could also use cashew milk, oat milk, or even regular dairy milk if you prefer.
Cinnamon – If you can find it, I love to swap the cinnamon in this recipe for apple pie spice!

Serving Ideas
While these apple pie overnight oats are delicious all on their own, they are also a great blank canvas for a variety of delicious different toppings.

Here are few of my favorite topping ideas to take your oats to the next level:
sliced banana
pumpkin seeds
chopped walnuts or pecans
hemp seeds
fresh berries
dried cranberries
shredded coconut
a dollop of Greek yogurt or whipped cream
more cinnamon or apple pie spice
Store the overnight oats in an air-tight container in the fridge for safe keeping. A mason jar or Weck jar with a tight lid work very well for

How Long Do Overnight Oats Last?
Overnight oats should last for around three days in an air-tight container in the fridge. While they may still be good to eat a few days after that, the texture of the oats may change as they soak up more liquid and become a bit more mushy.

I prefer to make a batch to enjoy for two or three days and then make another instead of doubling the recipe and eating off of it all week long.
