If you've been following me on Instagram lately you've probably noticed my obsession with overnight oats. Well, school started this week and with it, all the comfort of having a normal, easy-going family breakfast in the morning has gone. I'm all in making ahead and prepping the meals the night before to ease the stress the next morning of course. And what a better way to get all well fed in no time, than to prepare delicious, creamy, incredibly nutritious OVERNIGHT OATS.
Don't know about you, but back to school for me also means the change of season. Summer is over. Beautiful romantic Fall is taking its place. So it's only natural that lately, all my meals are Fall inspired.
These Apple Cinnamon Overnight Oats gives me precisely that warm fuzzy feeling of Fall that I've been looking for to brighten my rainy gloomy mornings. It tastes just like grandma's sweet apple pie and it smells just like perfection. It's a Fall in a jar, with all the healthiness I need for starting the day right.
Oats are actually a great option for hectic mornings. Overnight Oats are not only super easy meal to prepare, but also mega NUTRITIOUS. It's an incredible HEALTHY meal with many health benefits. Oats are among the healthiest grains on earth. They are a gluten-free whole grain and a great source of important vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Oats are rich in carbs and fiber, but also higher in protein and fat than most other grains.
Overnight oats also offer endless possibilities for you to play with flavor combos - like peanut butter and chocolate in these Peanut Butter Maca Overnight Oats. Just yummy!
Overnight oats give you a chance to express your mood but also creativity. You can choose toppings, fruits, and spices according to your current desires. It's plain simple meal but yet never boring.
Apple Cinnamon Overnight Oats are loaded with healthy stuff – dietary fibers, healthy fats, and plant-based proteins. It’s a whole, well-balanced meal packed in a jar and everything your body needs to start a day right. + It's a low-calorie deliciousness made entirely ADDED SUGAR-FREE.
To make these Apple Cinnamon Overnight Oats I used rolled oats and beautiful mild flavored almond milk. I also added some peanut butter that gave not only incredible creamy texture but also special nuttiness + so many NUTRIENTS - proteins and healthy fats for energy. I rounded up this tasty story with amazing HEALING super-spice - Ceylon cinnamon.
This nutritious base you can make days ahead and keep refrigerated. In the morning you just have to add toppings. Easy!
The star of this Apple Cinnamon Overnight Oats is, of course, fresh apple that I coated with more cinnamon. You can never overdo with this spice so add as much as you like. It gives incredible flavor but also natural sweetness. Same as the banana in this case.
Since I wanted to make this healthy breakfast more interesting and more nutritious, I added dried blueberries and hemp seeds too. You can totally use fresh blueberries here, or frozen one if you have. One of the reasons I love hemp seeds is because they're great for getting a little extra protein here and there. But I love them the most for their essential fatty acids, especially Omega 3 that is great for our heart health.
