If you love apple pie and apple crisp, this oatmeal is the perfect, healthy breakfast for you.
I could eat this all day long. Seriously. But I have a weird obsession with apple and cinnamon together. And what is fantastic about this is that the apples still stay crunchy even when you make this the night before. Feel free to add raisins or cranberries if you’d like. But I love it just the way it is.
- 1 cup oats
- 1½ scoops protein powder
- 1 cup almond milk, I used Silk unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
- 2 tablespoons chia seeds
- 1 apple, chopped
- ½ teaspoon 100% pure maple syrup
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts, I used Diamond of California
- Place all of the ingredients except for walnuts in a small bowl.
- Stir well and cover.
- Place in the refrigerator overnight.
- Top with walnuts.
- Eat and enjoy!
If you haven’t tried overnight oats yet, you seriously need to. And I hope you become obsessed with them like me so you won’t get bored of all the recipes I share! I love to add protein powder to make it a complete, healthy breakfast. Like I always say, you need protein at every meal and snack. The apples add fiber (keep the skin on), the walnuts contain omega-3-fatty acids, the oats add heart-healthy fiber and the almond milk is dairy-free, low calorie and packed with calcium. Now you see why this is my favorite? Obsessed is such a strong word…
