How to make apple cinnamon overnight oats

  1. First, add all of your overnight oats ingredients to a jar or resealable container. This includes milk, oats, yogurt, chia seeds, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Stir well to combine and add more oats or milk until desired consistency is reached.
  2. Next, chop some apples. Add a sprinkle of cinnamon to the apples. Add the cinnamon apples to the top of the oats.
  3. Cover the container and refrigerate overnight.
  4. Before serving, add some chopped pecans.

We highly recommend making these oats with apples and cinnamon, but feel free to use any seasonal fruit. These oats taste great with blueberries, strawberries, bananas and more.

Enjoy them hot or cold!

You can eat the oats cold right out of the refrigerator or serve them warm. To heat them up, microwave in a microwave-safe container without a lid for one minute or until heated through.

Storage Tips

Overnight oats stored in an airtight container last up to 4 days in the refrigerator. They soften more the longer they sit, so if you like creamy oatmeal, then a few days in the refrigerator is perfect. Do not freeze.

You do not have to store overnight oats in a jar, although we recommend a glass jar to ensure the best texture and flavor. You can use any type of airtight container.
