Overnight Apple Pie Oatmeal: You can pretend you are eating pie when you dig your spoon into this Apple Oatmeal–it is creamy, comforting, decadent, yet healthy. Full of whole grain oats, fiber, and naturally sweetened, this is one “pie” you won’t feel an ounce of guilt devouring.
You all know I LOVE oatmeal. That may even be an understatement–I am slightly obsessed with Oatmeal and all recipes made with oats.
I don’t know if I will ever tire of eating it. I mean, there are ENDLESS varieties of ways to use it. My family LOVES Peanut Butter Banana Overnight Oatmeal, Slow Cooker Strawberries and Cream Oatmeal and Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal just to name a few varieties.
And I have just stumbled on one of my favorite versions for fall.

Overnight Apple Oatmeal
Um yeah, it tastes like pie but is healthy.
And it saves the day when it comes to busy mornings–which means it claims a spot on my list of easy, healthy breakfast recipes. You literally grab Overnight Apple Cinnamon Oats from the fridge, grab a spoon and go!
How much easier can that get? In fact, I love serving oatmeal in mason jars with handles so that my kids can hold them easily in the car if we are really running late in the morning and they have to eat their Overnight Oatmeal on the Go–not that that ever happens!!
Notes on Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal
- Use any variety of milk you like in this oatmeal. I use unsweetened vanilla almond milk, but regular milk, coconut milk, soy milk all work great.
- If you don’t have fresh nutmeg to grate, don’t substitute dried nutmeg, it will over-power the dish. Just skip that ingredient.
- Both quick cook and old fashioned oats work in this recipe.
- If you prefer your oatmeal warm, just take the lid off and microwave for 1-2 minutes and then serve.
- Any firm, sweet apples, such as gala, or honey crisp, work for the apples in this apple pie oatmeal!
