I love them that much that I challenge you to make them and let me know in the comments below!
Welcome to the 7 Days of Overnight Oats Day Four. Click on the image below for all of our overnight oats recipes. This is definitely my new go-to breakfast for preparing for those busy weeks. I know how challenging it can be to get your family up and out the door each morning, so saving some time with this meal prep breakfast will make a huge difference.
How to Make the Cooked Apples
This really only takes a couple minutes to prepare and since they simmer for 10 minutes, I do other things in the kitchen so I can be nearby and still whip these up. The taste is worth the few extra minutes!
Peel and cut up the apples into very small chunks. Mine were about ⅜”. Combine the sugar, water, spices, butter and apples into a 2 qt saucepan and bring to a boil. Simmer for 10 minutes. Stir every couple minutes to see how they are softening. The two apples will yield enough for four jars of overnight oats. This recipe for Apple Cinnamon Overnight Oats yields two servings of overnight oats. You will have extra cinnamon apples, so you use them again the following week. These can stay in the refrigerator for a week.
How to Make Apple Cinnamon Overnight Oats
The secret to this one is the apples! So, I can’t say this recipe is the fastest overnight oats that I have made – because it isn’t. It requires a little bit of cooking, but the end result of these baked apples pay off the the out-of-this-world flavor!
Combine the oats, milk and yogurt in a bowl and mix well. Layer a pint sized glass jar with the oatmeal mix and apple cinnamon mixture until the jar is full. Cover and refrigerate.
Can I Substitute Raw Apples?
Absolutely. If you want to use raw apples, cut them into small pieces, toss them in the sugar/spice mixture in a zip lock bag and then layer on your oats. They will be crunchier but still delish!
Can I Use Canned Apples?
Sure, I don’t use them so I can’t tell you about the taste but they should work out well.
What is the Difference Between Old Fashioned Oats and Quick Oats?
The Old Fashioned Oats are the whole grain and the Quick Oats are cut up whole grain. The quick oats absorb the moisture quicker. Because these will be sitting in the milk for an extended time, I always suggest Old Fashioned Oats.
