Healthy Apple Pie Overnight Oats Recipe

Fall is here and you know what that means—it’s apple season! And Apple Pie Overnight Oats make the perfect healthy fall breakfast.

Apples are full of vitamins and antioxidants, and they’re a great source of fiber, too. There are many varieties of apples available which allows you to customize any dish that you use them in. Choose a pink lady apple if you like a little tang, or a gala if you like balanced sweetness. Just grab your favorite variety and whip up some Apple Pie Overnight Oats—you won’t regret it.

The combination of apples, cinnamon, vanilla, and maple is simply divine. This healthful breakfast is gluten-free, dairy-free, full of fiber, and absolutely delicious.

Even if you’re not an oatmeal fan give overnight oats a try. I’ve never cared for hot oatmeal so I avoided overnight oats until I was at a business breakfast and it was the only thing available. I was so glad I tried it; the texture of soaked and chilled oats is much more appealing than I had expected.

This recipe is:

Healthy, Clean, Simple, Gluten-Free*, Dairy-Free
Soy-Free, Vegan, 100% Real Food, Delicious

*Oats are gluten-free by nature but are often stored in close proximity to gluten-containing grains. If you have a severe gluten allergy or sensitivity look for oats specifically labeled gluten-free.


Apples are on the Environmental Working Groups “Dirty Dozen,” meaning that they tend to be sprayed with high levels of pesticides, so choose organic if you can. Also, choose organic oats if you can—they tend to be a really great price in the bulk bins of your natural grocery store.

The recipe below makes two servings and I usually double it to prepare four servings at a time. You can line the jars up assembly-line style and make four days worth of breakfasts in one fell swoop. I even take a jar of overnight oats on the plane with me when I travel sometimes for a healthy lunch; if they are fully soaked (no liquid) you can take it through security.

Easy Apple Pie Overnight Oats Recipe

Prep time: less than 10 minutes
Total time: 6-12 hours to soak
Makes 2 servings

  • 1 banana, sliced
  • 1/2 of an apple, diced
  • 1-2 tablespoons of unsweetened almond butter
  • 2 teaspoons chia seeds
  • 1 cup of whole rolled oats (not instant)
  • 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk (or any unsweetened nut milk)
  • 1 teaspoon organic maple syrup (100% real maple syrup), or raw honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (more or less to taste)
  • 1/4 teaspoon high-quality vanilla extract

You’ll also need a one wide-mouth pint-sized mason jar or similar glass container with a secure fitting lid. Or, split the two servings between two half-pint mason jars for single-serve oats (as pictured here).


In a separate container, mix your nut milk, natural sweetener, cinnamon, and vanilla extract. Set aside.

In your mason jar, layer the ingredients as follows:

  • 4-5 slices of banana, I like to press them around the bottom edges
  • sprinkle of diced apple
  • 2-3 dollops of almond butter
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 teaspoon of chia seeds
  • sprinkle of diced apple
  • 2-3 dollops of almond butter
  • (if using a full pint jar, repeat to create another layer)

Leave a slight gap at the top after the last layer for the nut milk and soaking.

Pour your nut milk mixture over the oats leaving a slight gap at the top to allow your oats to expand as they soak. Stick a knife or fork to the bottom of the jar a few times to make sure the milk soaks all the way through. Cover tightly and refrigerate overnight, or at least up to 6 hours. Will keep up to four days in your refrigerator.

Enjoy cold or warm through in a saucepan on the stove if you prefer.
