Think you don’t have time to for a healthy breakfast? Check out these quick and simple Apple Cinnamon Overnight Oats!
Overnight oats makes it easy to get the morning fuel your brain and body need and saves you loads of time too, with most of the prep work happening the night before. And don't worry, it'll take you less than five minutes!
This classic flavor combo of apple and cinnamon is delightful and the heartiness of the oats will keep you going strong all morning long! I have to be honest, the first time I had this I felt like I was eating dessert for breakfast…yes, it’s really that good!!
Did you know... oats are a whole grain packed with nutrients like manganese, phosphorus, magnesium, copper, iron, dietary fiber and more. This good-for-you carb is also a good source of protein, coming in higher than most other whole grains. And oats contain properties that have been shown to help lower cholesterol, regulate blood sugar, promote a healthy gut and support a heart health. PLUS, studies show they're great for supporting a healthy waistline by helping you feel fuller longer. Talk about one powerful grain!
1/2 C oats (can sub with gluten free)
1/2 C vanilla unsweetened almond milk (or milk of choice)
1 tsp. honey (if you prefer your oats a bit sweeter, add another 1/2 tsp.)
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 large apple, diced (my favorite is honeycrisp!)
Crushed walnuts to garnish (optional)
In a small mason jar, Tupperware, glass container or blender bottle (remove the roller ball whisk if using a blender bottle), add the oats, cinnamon, honey and milk and stir well.
Cover oatmeal mixture and place in the fridge overnight.
In the morning, peel and then dice half of an apple, then remove the oatmeal mixture from the fridge to fold the diced apple into the oatmeal mixture. Sprinkle with chopped walnuts (if desired).
Eat it right out of the jar or container (great for grab-and-go mornings) or spoon it into your favorite dish!
Eat and Enjoy!
