    Overnight No-Cook Apple Pie Oatmeal

    October is such a fun and BUSY month – I love every second of it. But I have to admit – I’m still trying to get in the groove with back to school. Heck, it’s not even *back* to school for us since this is our very first year ever having to set an alarm clock or be on any sort of set schedule.

    I would be lying if I said the morning wasn’t always bit hectic in our house. One thing I’ve been trying to do a better job of is prepping breakfast ahead of time. I’m pretty good at having a dinner plan and I usually eat leftovers for lunch but I don’t always remember to have a plan for breakfast.

    Overnight Apple Pie Oatmeal Ingredients - The Lemon Bowl

    This is where overnight refrigerator oats come into play as they literally take just minutes to prepare and you wake up to breakfast waiting for you. I’ve made them before with blueberries as well as with steel-cut oats but this time I decided to turn America’s favorite apple pie into a healthy, protein-packed breakfast.

    The best part? You can assemble a big batch of these at once and they will last in the fridge for up to 4 days.

    If you don’t have resealable mason jars, just whip up the oats in a large bowl and scoop them out each morning in your usual cereal bowl.

    Feel free to top them with extra diced apples, chopped walnuts and ground cinnamon in the morning. You can never have too much cinnamon in my book.

    Your spoon is waiting.

    1. Thanks Liz! I love quick and healthy breakfasts. I’ve been making a lot of chia seed pudding, but I will give this overnight oats a try, sounds delish and it’s a great way to use up my soon-to-be expired yogurt, thanks for the inspiration :)

    2. I love doing easy make ahead breakfasts like this. We do a lot of refrigerator oats around here! I like the idea of using apple butter–I have to give that a try!

    3. This is very intriguing idea. I’ve made several versions of apple pie overnight oats, and basically they came out flavorless. I think that using apple butter probably solves that problem very nicely. Now all I need to do is find the apple butter… (our grocery stores don’t stock a lot of stuff that I think they should have.)
