I thought I’d just pop in real quick with one more super easy apple recipe.

And I don’t think there is anything better to go with apples as cinnamon and caramel – in case you hadn’t noticed.  And who doesn’t love a sweet and tasty grab and go portable breakfast layered with tasty fruit and oats?  You could almost call it dessert, but then it wouldn’t be so easy to tell yourself that it’s good for you.

I normally use full fat coconut milk when I make overnight oats, but I didn’t think the flavor would work as well with cinnamon caramel apples as it does with blueberries or peaches, so I just used regular old grade A whole milk in here.

I also added some chia seeds because Chris loves them and they help make everything all thick and delicious with some additional fun texture.

In the spirit of keeping things short and sweet, have a great rest of the week, friends!  Before you know if we’ll all be talking about all things pumpkin and gingerbread! Until next time!

Caramel Apple Chia Overnight Oats Recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 - 3 apples, cored, peeled, and roughly chopped into bit size pieces
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds

Instructions

  1. Combine apples, brown sugar, butter, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a sauce pan and cook on medium low until apples are softened, but not mushy (10 minutes or so) - or desired texture is reached
  2. Set aside
  3. In a medium size bowl, combine oats, milk, and chia seeds
  4. Spoon half of the oat mixture in a layer evenly in the bottom of 4 - 5 Mason jars, then a layer of half the apple mixture, and repeat with another layer of oat mixture and top each with remaining apples
  5. Top with lids and refrigerate overnight

NOTES:

  1. Feel free to switch out the fruit and use something different.  I think pears would be amazing in here.
  2. These photographs were taken before the overnight oats finished their overnight part of the title because I learned a long time ago that things don’t always last long enough to get a picture – the point is that after they sit overnight they will be thicker.
  3. You will likely get 4-5 individual servings in jars, depending what size jars you use.
  4. I used a combination of granny smith and gala because I had a ton of both, but I think any variety of apple would work in here just fine.  Use what you like.

  1. We’re both channeling caramel apples today, Rachelle. Clearly this means we need to go to the state fair and get ourselves an actual caramel apple! 🙂 This sounds like the perfect recipe to wake up to on a chilly Fall morning!

  2. Gahhhh NO TALK OF PUMPKIN. Hahahaha. I say we just talk about apples and caramel for the rest of our lives. <3 Joking aside, I love apples and caramel any which way I can get 'em, and these overnight oats look faaaaab! Love that you added chia seeds for some texture! This is perfect for breakfast AND dessert! Gimme gimme! Cheers, lovely! xoxo

  3. I’ve been living on overnight oats lately because it’s been so hot, and this has to be one of the best fall versions yet! Anytime I can have caramel apple for breakfast it’s gonna be a good day!

  4. Apples are the best up here right now in New England. We are all about apple pickin’ and I might go pick some after the Patriots game today 😉 Then I can make your yummy oats and take them camping with me 🙂 GO PATS!!
