Overnight oats are a really simple breakfast that you can prep in advance to make your mornings quick and easy. Overnight oats can be eaten either hot or cold, depending on your preference. I like to eat them cold in the summer, and hot in the winter. They’re fantastic either way.

Overnight oats can keep for up to 5 days in the fridge, so you can make one for every day of the week. Just pull it out of the fridge and you’ve got breakfast sorted. It can’t be easier than that. Plus, the apple pie flavor is super tasty.

If you love these overnight oats, you should try other flavors. We really like Overnight Oats Tiramisu and Cinnamon Roll Overnight Oats.

Ingredients You’ll Need

Ingredients for apple pie overnight oats
  • Apple – Peeled and finely chopped.
  • Butter – Use salted butter and take it out of the refrigerator at least 30 minutes before you’ll use it to allow it to come to room temperature.
  • Maple Syrup – use a high-quality real maple syrup, if you can.
  • Apple Pie Spice – You might find this spice blend in the store, but if you can’t find it here is a recipe to make it yourself.
  • Old Fashioned Oats – Also known as rolled oats, Old Fashioned Oats are flattened so they cook faster than steel cut oats.
  • Milk – You can use anywhere from half and half for creamier oats to skim milk for less creamy, or even use a milk substitute of your choice.
  • Greek Yogurt – Adding Greek yogurt will make the oats even creamier, but this is entirely optional
  • Vanilla Extract – To add a mild vanilla flavor.
  • Brown Sugar – I use a light brown sugar that has a mild sweet caramel flavor.

What Apples to Use

When it comes to making Apple Pie Overnight Oats, your choice of apple can truly elevate the dish. You’re aiming for a nice balance of sweetness and tartness, and possibly a hint of spice for that classic apple pie flavor.

  1. Honeycrisp: Offers a balanced sweetness and tartness, adding a juicy crunch.
  2. Granny Smith: If you like it more on the tart side, Granny Smith is your go-to. These apples hold up well and offer a vibrant green color.
  3. Fuji: For those with a sweet tooth, Fuji apples provide a sugary taste without overwhelming the dish.
  4. Gala: Another sweet option, but less intense than Fuji, making them versatile for mixing with spices.

Helpful Tips

  • If you prefer not to use maple syrup, honey or another natural liquid sweetener will work. If you wish to reduce the sugar in this recipe, you can use a sugar substitute of your choice.
  • After a day or two of chilling, the oats might become dry or thick. If that happens, just add more milk to make them as creamy as you wish.
  • To make this recipe vegan, substitute the milk and yogurt with vegan versions.
  • You can substitute cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice for the apple pie spice.
  • I like to refrigerate these oats in a pint glass canning jar with a reusable lid. This gives you the room to stir it up and add more milk in the morning if you like. These are served in a 1/2 pint jar.

How To Make These Apple Pie Overnight Oats

Step 1: Cook the apples

In a saucepan, combine the apple, butter, maple syrup and cinnamon. Cook, covered, over medium-low heat for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Remove the lid and continue to cook for 2-3 minutes. You want the apples to cook down so they are mushy, and most of the liquid to evaporate. When it gets to this stage, remove it from the heat.

Step 2: Mix the other ingredients

In a small bowl, mix the oats, milk, yogurt, vanilla, and brown sugar until it’s all well combined. Add 3/4 of the apple mixture and stir to incorporate it into the oats. Reserve the remaining apples to put on the top later. Cover and refrigerator the oats overnight or at least 3 hours.

Step 3: Combine

In the morning uncover the overnight oats and stir. If the mixture is too thick, you can add some milk. You can now add the remaining apple mixture to the top. Heat it up up, if you want, and spoon it on top of the oats.

Enjoy cold or warm.

How to Store Apple Pie Overnight Oats

Storing Apple Pie Overnight Oats is a straightforward task that ensures you’ll have a delicious, ready-to-eat breakfast waiting for you. Once you’ve mixed your oats, apple pieces, and other ingredients in a jar or an airtight container, simply place the lid on tightly.

Store it in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours, or up to 5 days. For an extra flavor boost, consider adding the more delicate elements like chopped nuts or a dollop of yogurt right before eating. This way, you maintain both the texture and taste at their peak.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you reheat overnight oats?

You can reheat overnight in the microwave or eat them cold. It is your choice! They are great either way. If you like to reheat your oats, just put them in the microwave for about 60 seconds, then stir it up.

How long will overnight oats keep?

You can store your overnight oats in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. This is what makes them so great for breakfast meal prep, because you can make one for each weekday. After the third day, the oats will begin to soften and the texture will be slightly different, so we don’t recommend keeping them longer than 5 days.
