Apple Pie Overnight Oats Recipe

This apple overnight oats recipe makes 2 servings and is easily doubled or tripled if needed. Overnight oats keep in the fridge for 4-5 days, so make these ahead for delicious breakfasts all week long. We like them cold, but you can heat them over medium heat in a small pan on the stove if desired.


Units Scale

You’ll need a 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).

  • 1 banana, sliced (if you don't like banana you can leave this out)
  • 1/2 of an apple, diced (we like to use Gala apples here)
  • 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 milk of your choice)
  • 1 teaspoon organic maple syrup (100% real maple syrup), or honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon (more or less to taste)
  • 1/4 teaspoon high-quality vanilla extract


  1. In a separate container, mix your nut milk, natural sweetener, cinnamon, and vanilla extract. Set aside.
  2. In your mason jar or bowl, layer the ingredients as follows:
    • 4-5 slices of banana, I like to press them around the bottom edges
    • sprinkle of diced apple
    • 1 tablespoon of almond butter
    • 1/2 cup oats
    • 1 teaspoon of chia seeds
    • sprinkle of diced apple
    • 1 tablespoon of almond butter
  3. Leave a slight gap at the top after the last layer for the nut milk and soaking.
  4. 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 five days in your refrigerator if you use plant-based milk or water, or three days if you use regular milk.
  5. Enjoy cold or warm through in a saucepan on the stove over medium heat if you prefer.

Keeps well in the fridge, covered, up to 4 days.
