Apple Pie Refrigerator Oatmeal is everything you love about fall turned into a healthy, make-ahead breakfast.
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.
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.
- 2 cup oats old fashioned or quick cooking
- 2 cups diced apple
- 4 six ounce containers vanilla Greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup Musselman's Apple Butter
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 8 tablespoons chopped walnuts
In a large bowl stir together all ingredients: oats through walnuts.
Cover bowl with plastic wrap or seal jar with lid and refrigerate overnight.
Serve in small bowls chilled or at room temperature the next day.
Garnish with additional chopped walnuts or diced apples if you wish.
Oats can be prepared up to 4 days in advance - great for planning ahead for a busy week.
