Apple Pie Overnight Oats

By the time this post goes live (thanks, pre-scheduling!), I will be in good ol’ Rhode Island! I found cheap plane tickets (thanks, Southwest!), and since this happens to be my dad’s birthday (thanks… grandparents?), I snatched them right up. I didn’t tell my dad I was coming, though, because who doesn’t love a birthday surprise?! (Me, that’s who. I don’t like surprises.)

Anyway, I’m excited to spend time with my family—even my brother is flying in from Seattle; by coincidence, he has a wedding to attend this weekend in RI. And I’ll get to see most of closest home-friends, some of whom I haven’t seen in ages. Basically, it’s going to be a wonderful long weekend.

But enough about me and my travel plans! Instead, let’s talk about me and my food. :P

Today I have yet another vegan overnight oats recipe to share with you, making this the third time I’ve blogged about something oatmeal-related this month. I hope you’re not tired of it yet! I make no promises that a fourth post won’t show up at some point. ;) For now, though, check out this yummy breakfast I devoured on Friday morning:


A big ol’ jar of vegan Apple Pie Overnight Oats! I chopped up half an apple and put it right in the oatmeal, and it really made this one special. It even *smelled* like an apple pie, redolent of cinnamon and deep brown sugar. Mmm. These oats sit a little lighter in your tummy than my pumpkin oats, but they’re no less satisfying.

Apple Pie Overnight Oats
Serves one

1/2 small apple, diced small
1/4 C unsweetened applesauce
1/2 c non-dairy milk
1 T brown sugar
1/2 t cinnamon
Dash nutmeg
Dash salt
1/2 C rolled oats (I use Bob’s Red Mill Rolled Oats)

In a mason jar or other container with a tight lid, combine all ingredients except the oats. Shake vigorously until well-combined. Add the oats and shake again. Place in fridge and chill overnight.

Do you have any travel plans in the near future? How do you feel about surprises?

  1. I’m so excited to find this recipe! I’m a vegan with a banana allergy, and almost every other overnight oat recipe I’ve found has that as one of the key ingredients. I just have one question- could I make a few days worth of these for breakfast at a time and just keep them in the refrigerator for a few days? Or will they not last?


    • I’m glad to help! As for preparing in advance, I’m not sure. I regularly make my overnight oats ahead of time, and they’re definitely still good a few days later. But I haven’t done that with this recipe, so I don’t know how the fresh fruit would hold up for more than a night or two. Maybe you could make everything but the apples, and then just chop and add the apples each night?

  3. Can you heat this oatmeal and eat it warm? So excited to try this since it doesn’t have greek yogurt or whole milk in it, but I like to eat oatmeal warm.

  6. I was in an apple kind of mood this week with my overnight oats and decided to give this one a try. I was hesitant, I admit, as I tend to avoid white sugar (and thus brown sugar as well). But I realize I use honey and maple syrup, and I don’t really have a stance on refined sugar. So I went for it, making my own brown sugar. And O.M.G. That brown sugar makes all the difference in the apple pie experience! This was AMAZING! It was thinner than I like my oats to be, but I was okay with it because of the taste! I might try adding some chia seeds or something when/if I make these again. But wow. Just wow. This is probably my favorite apple oats recipe yet. Thank you!
