These apple pie overnight oats are a quick, healthy breakfast.

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 unnecessary additives. Luckily I can make an even tastier “instant breakfast” by soaking whole food ingredients in a jar overnight.

These apple pie overnight oats are so easy and delicious. It takes just a few minutes to stir together the ingredients, and the flavor is perfect for fall.

This recipe is based on my apple pie Larabars. Featuring dried apples and dates, this meal is just sweet enough to taste like a treat at breakfast time.

Where to Get Dehydrated Apples

You can use chewy dehydrated apples like they carry at Trader Joe’s for these apple cinnamon overnight oats. Another option is to make a batch of homemade apple chips

If you can’t find chewy dried apples, you can also use freeze dried apples, which may be more widely available in your area. The freeze dried apples will become chewy after soaking overnight with the oats. 

Another option is to stir in fresh chopped apples. When using fresh apples, I like to add them to the overnight oats in the morning. This gives a nice crunchy texture to the recipe.

If you don’t have dates, feel free to substitute a couple teaspoons of pure maple syrup instead.

For a nice presentation, top these apple pie overnight oats with fresh diced apples and walnuts. The flavor is so delicious!

  1. How do you think fresh apple will hold up? I’ve made baked apple oatmeal and it’s fine. I wonder if fresh apple will work in this recipe. Thoughts?

    1. Suzanne, this should be fine with applesauce or diced fresh apple. You could also stir in the apple in the morning when you’re ready to eat. Overnight oats are very adaptable!

      1. Thanks, Suzanne! I’m glad to hear you liked it with fresh apples. I tried it with applesauce and I didn’t like it as much, but I’ll try fresh apple chunks next time.

    1. I haven’t left them for more than a couple days, but I know other people make a batch for the week and eat one every day.
