Sweet, cinnamon-coated baked apples layered between creamy overnight oats will make you look forward to mornings – or at least make waking up a little more tolerable 😉
I know I’ve been posting overnight oats recipes more frequently than normal but I just can’t help myself. In the summer, these peach crisp and strawberries and cream overnight oats were my jam, but now with cooler weather here and apple season in full swing, it just felt natural to combine the flavors of apple desserts and overnight oats.
As mentioned in a previous post, these baked apples are super easy and contain no added sugars. Seriously, all you need are 3-4 apples, some cinnamon, and cooking spray (or a drizzle of oil) and you have yourself a perfectly sweet apple filling that’s healthy enough for breakfast.
Because I don’t like my breakfasts super sweet, the only sweetness is from the baked apples and the unsweetened vanilla almond milk. But if you like a little more sugar in your life (can’t blame you), a touch of maple syrup would be delicious!
I also swirled in natural almond butter into my overnight oats, but feel free to use any nut butter of choice. Again, for a little extra sweetness, using a maple or honey-flavored almond butter would work great.
All my recent apple recipes are getting me pumped for our annual Apple Harvest Festival trip to Bry’s hometown in Connecticut this weekend! Every year since Bry started college, he and a group of friends from college would head down from Boston for the ultimate Fall-in-New-England experience: apple pie eating contests, hiking through apple orchards, fresh apple cider donuts after a corn maze, and drinking warm apple cider while waiting in line for a terrifying haunted walk. This year is especially exciting as it’s now a way see all our friends still back in Boston.
Also, no recipe this Friday, as I have a Recipe Redux Challenge post coming your way Saturday instead 🙂
