Almond & Apple Overnight Oats

I've been loving the ease and simplicity of all these overnight oats recipes and have tried out a few that I'd seen on Pinterest. For this I just went with what I know and love and concocted something myself (besides we still have about 40lbs of apples in our garage!)
It's totally delicious either warm or cold.
Ingredients (makes around 7 servings - 1 cup each)
  • 1.5 cups steel cut oats
  • 1 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 2.5 cups Almond milk
  • 1/2 cup Almond butter
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 2.5 cups unsweetened Applesauce
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup
Soak the oats and chia seeds overnight in the milk in the fridge. Next morning add the rest of the ingredients and stir well. Store ready to eat in an airtight container in the fridge.
Adjust the maple syrup and applesauce for your sweetness preference - we used homemade applesauce made with Honey Crisp apples (and nothing else) - they are quite a sweet variety - but then I've got a sweet tooth!
My wife and I are creatures of habit, especially when it comes to breakfast, so after having smoothies to start our day for the last 4 years this was pretty ground-breaking stuff to be switching to something new - This packs 13g of protein so it's a great filling start to your day!

  1. Also try this with pumpkin puree instead of the apple, and a little pumpkin pie spice instead of the cinnamon!
