It’s no secret that I’m not a huge fan of breakfasts, especially not during weekdays. I really don’t like spending time in the kitchen in the morning preparing a breakfast, I just want to get going. I therefore love making overnight oats, since I can just grab it in the morning, eat it right away, on the go or bring it along for a late breakfast or afternoon snack. This overnight oats is made flavored with vanilla and made with both milk and yogurt, which makes it extra creamy and a bit more filling. It is served with a home cooked apple butter that has a deep, rich and caramelized flavor. The apple butter can be served cold, or slightly warm for a cozier feeling that pairs so well with the cold overnight oats. You also have cinnamon fried apples that are tender but still left with a bit of core on the inside, to add a lovely contrast and chewing resistance to the oats. Then topped with chopped almonds for some crunch.

A few tips:

  • You can make your own apple butter from this recipe or use a store bought one. But I would recommend to make your own.
  • You can use any milk of your liking, the same goes for the plain yogurt. Use dairy free for vegan option.
  • Use vanilla extract or stevia vanilla drops in the overnight oats.
  • You can serve the overnight oats with warm (so delicious if you have time possibility and time) or cold apple butter.
  • The fried apples can be eaten both warm and cold as well.
  • This overnight oats is good to store in the fridge for up to five days.

Ingredients

For the overnight oats

  • 1 1/2 dl Oats
  • 1 1/2 dl Milk (any milk will work)
  • 1/2 dl Plain yogurt
  • 4-5 drops Vanilla stevia drops

For the topping

  • 3/4 dl Apple butter (see note 1 for the recipe I used)
  • 1/2 Apple diced
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Granulated sugar free sweetener (optional)
  • 1/2 tbsp Water
  • 3-4 Almonds roughly chopped

Instructions

  • Combine the ingredients for the overnight oats in a bowl, jar or glass. Stir to combine, place in the fridge for at least four hours.
  • Make the apple butter if making your own. (See note 1 for the recipe I used).
  • When ready to assembly the overnight oats preheat a nonstick pan over medium heat.
  • Dice the apples, increase the heat to medium-high on the stove. Add apples, water, cinnamon and sweetener (if using), stir together. Let them cook until the water has evaporated, then lower the heat and fry for about 1 minute. You want them to turn slightly soft and get a little browned.
  • Assembly the overnight oats by placing 1/2 dl of the apple butter at the bottom of a jar/glas. Place the overnight oats over the apple butter, top with the rest of the apple butter, fried apples and chopped almonds.
