Ingredients

  • 3 Tbsp. pecans toasted

Cinnamon Apples:

  • 1 cup apples peeled and cut into ½ - inch cubes
  • 1 Tbsp pure maple syrup honey, or agave nectar
  • 2 tsp butter or coconut oil
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon

Overnight Oats:

  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats gluten-free
  • 1 cup almond milk soy, or regular milk
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup honey, or agave nectar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon

Instructions

For the Toasted Pecans:

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Toast pecans for 4-6 minutes, or until lightly toasted. Store in an airtight container until ready to use.

For the Cinnamon Apples:

  1. In a medium skillet add apples, 2 tablespoons maple syrup and butter or oil. Saute for 5-7 minutes over medium heat, or until apples begin to soften.
  2. Add lemon juice and cinnamon. Stir to coat apples and continue cooking over medium heat for an additional 3 minutes. Remove from heat until ready to use.

For the Overnight Oats:

  1. In a medium-sized bowl combine oats, milk, sweetener (honey, maple or agave), cinnamon, and vanilla. Stir to combine.
  2. Divide oats evenly between three 10-12 ounce mason jars or serving cups.

  3. Divide apples evenly between the jars.

  4. Refrigerate for at least thirty minutes or overnight. Serve cold or heat up in microwave for 45-60 seconds. Top with toasted pecans and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

If you would like to make these oats just a tad healthier, you can try these changes:

 

  • Decrease the amount of maple syrup or sweetener in the oats or substitute for Stevia. <-- Decreases overall sugar!
  • Use reduced sugar or no sugar-added almond milk. <-- I love using AlmondBreeze unsweetened vanilla almond milk.
  • Use coconut oil instead of butter in the apples. <-- Virgin/unrefined coconut oil is best.
  • Add a tablespoon or two of chia seeds to each serving. <-- Extra fiber and omega-3s!
  • Swap out the pecans for walnuts or almonds. <-- Walnuts have more omega-3s and almonds have more protein per ounce than pecans.
