If you love apple pie and apple crisp, these Apple Pie Overnight Oats are the perfect, healthy breakfast for you. Prepare a few to keep in the refrigerator for the week for an easy, make ahead snack!
I have a weird obsession with apple and cinnamon together. And what is fantastic about theseApple Pie Overnight Oats is that the apples still stay crunchy even when you make this the night before.
That's the beauty of overnight oats, you don't actually cook them so the texture stays crunchy. Nothing soft and mushy in here,
Feel free to add raisins or cranberries if you'd like. Or even a nut butter or sunflower seed butter.
If you'd like to check out my other overnight oat recipes, here is my basic recipe for overnight oats and here is another one that is Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Overnight Oats.
Why You Should Make These Apple Pie Overnight Oats
The most important part is that these overnight oats are completely customizable to your likes (and whatever you have in your refrigerator and pantry!)
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.
I always make 5 or 6 at a time and keep them available for breakfast or snack.
People remain successful following a healthy lifestyle when there are nutritious options available. This is why meal prep is so important for people's success.

I love that this recipe has some protein powder in it! makes this a more well rounded breakfast choice, thank you so much for sharing this recipe!
We were stuck in a rut with breakfast and I needed something quick for my boys in the morning and they loved this! Thank you!
Overnight oats just got better!! Love the apple pie flavor!! So warm & comforting!! I'll be eating this every morning!!
Had this today and it was quite tasty! A strange mix of textures, though, that left me a bit unsure of what to think. It's really thick, thanks in no small part to those chia seeds, but I rather liked it. I'm going to heat up tomorrow's oats and see how that goes! Lookin' forward to seein' the difference there. Thanks so much for the recipe!
Just wanted to add that I used vanilla soy milk and a granny smith apple. I'll have to try these again some day with a sweeter apple to see what that does!
Maybe a honey crisp or fuji apple Sherwood? I am glad you like it!
I agree, the texture might get some time getting used to, especially because it's cold and not hot! Try to heat it for 30 seconds or so and let me know how you like it! Thanks for stopping by!
I heated this up today and it was even better than cold! Of course, a different apple type could change that. The granny smith I used was pretty bland... I'll have to try a fuji next time. But it was amazing warm. The texture even softened up some, which was nice.
I just made this for tomorrow. We shall see if I like it. I love oatmeal, I just can't eat them without some kind of sweetness.
I hope you like it Carissa! You can always add some extra maple syrup if you think you need it! 😉
I am so glad i found this. I’ll make it tomorrow’s breakfast.
YAY! I hope you like it Suki! 🙂
