Raise your hand if:

  • Every morning you are constantly running around like a crazy person because you’re already so late after hitting that snooze button way too many times (that bed is so comfy though!!)
  • You think life is too short not be eating dessert for breakfast BUT you also kinda like fitting in your skinny jeans. Life’s dilemma.
  • The LAST THING you want to do when you wake up in the morning is to cook. But at the same time, you’re so bored with your typical breakfast it’s driving you crazy. You want something yummy and completely effortless.
  • Eating breakfast at your desk is your thing. It’s super convenient and making your colleagues envious is just an added bonus.

Sounds like you? I’ve got just the right thing for you: overnight oats topped with apple pie filling (you’ve seen it coming, right?).

Are you familiar with overnight oats? Here’s how it goes: you put some oats in a jar. You pour some milk on it. You shake shake shake (or not). You put it in the fridge. You sleep. TADA, it’s ready!

Now, what’s truly exciting about overnight oats is…the topping!! And this topping my friend is HU-mazing. Tender apples, simmered in coconut sugar and cinnamon… “OH MY GOD” is probably the best way to describe this breakfast. It’s like eating an apple pie (because it’s basically apple pie filling!) but without the crust and added nutrition. If that doesn’t make you want to jump out of bed, I don’t know what will! Enjoy!!

Ingredients

    Apple Pie Filling
  • 4 medium baking apples, peeled, cored and cut into chunks (see note #1)
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar (you can also use brown sugar)
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground cardamom
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 to 1 1/2 tbsp cornstarch (depending on how thick you want the filling to be)
  • Oats (quantity for a single serve!)
  • 1/2 cup oats (your favorite kind)
  • 1/2 cup almond milk (or your favorite kind of milk)
  • 1 tsp maple syrup (more or less to taste)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Mix apples, lemon juice, sugar, spices and water in a large skillet. Bring water to a boil then reduce to medium-low, cover and cook for 15 minutes, stirring from time to time. Dissolve cornstarch with about 1/3 cup water and add to the apples. Stir and cook for about 3 minutes or until liquid has thickened. [Some apples are very juicy and some are less, so if you find that there's not enough liquid, add a little bit more water; and if it's too juicy, add a little bit more cornstarch (diluted in water before)]. Transfer to a container, allow to cool and set aside until ready to use. It will keep up to a week in the fridge.
  2. The night before, place 1/2 cup oats in a jar. Mix together milk, maple and vanilla and pour over oats. Stir, close with a lid and store in the fridge overnight. Repeat for more servings.
  3. In the morning, stir oats again. At this point, you can add more milk to taste. Top with 1/4th of apple pie filling per serving. If you like you oats warm, reheat them in the microwave for about one minute. Enjoy!

Notes

I like to use a mix of different apples for a complex flavor. For this recipe, I used 2 red delicious, 1 royal gala and 1 green smith.

  1. It is nearly 8 pm for me here in South India 🙂 and reading this I feel suddenly pretty hungry (but I try not to eat anything after 7 pm at the latest) – I do love oats every morning so now I just have to cook some apples again 🙂 🙂
