Cinnamon Apple Walnut Overnight Oats

Breakfast is sometimes my favorite meal of the day and sometimes my least favorite. During the week, breakfast is a chore…basically a way to fill my stomach before leaving for work!

This recipe was created out of my struggle to make weekday breakfast enjoyable. This recipe is fast, can be made in large batches, and saves in the fridge for 3-4 days. A mix of tangy apples, warm cinnamon, crispy chia seeds, toasty walnuts, and richly sweet natural honey add flavor without a ton of “feel-bad” calories. Bonus for my friends with kiddos: they’ll like it too!

The Ingredients

1 cup quick steal cut oats

¾ teaspoon cinnamon

½ teaspoon chia seeds

2 teaspoons natural honey

½ honeycrisp apple, but in wedges (or your favorite kind!)

The Steps

In a cereal bowl or mason jar, add oats and milk. Stir. The consistency should be liquidy.

Store, covered, overnight in fridge (or at least 6 hours).
