These Apple Pie Overnight Oats make a quick, healthy breakfast for a busy morning. When I was a child, I loved the little packets of instant apple cinnamon oatmeal. Now I know that many instant oatmeal packets are highly processed and full of unhealthy additives. Luckily I can make an even tastier “instant breakfast” by soaking whole food ingredients in a jar overnight. The whey helps to break down the phytic acid in the oats, making them easier to digest.
This recipe is based on my Apple Pie Larabars, one of the most popular recipes on the blog. I use dried apples to replicate the texture found in those instant packets, but you can substitute fresh apple chunks if you prefer. This recipe makes two hearty servings. If you’re feeding a crowd, you can easily make more and they’ll last for several days in the refrigerator.
