Apple Pie Overnight Oats

This next recipe doesn’t look amazing but don’t let that deter you, these oats are lovely and the topping just tastes delicious. The apple sauce is both sweet and spicy and it is just divine. I made mien the night before then warmed everything in the microwave in the morning before eating.img_2601


For the oats:

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • ¾ ground cinnamon
  • ⅛ ground nutmeg
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • ⅓ cup apple sauce
  • ½ cup almond milk

For the filling:

  • 1 apple, cored and chopped into ½ inch chunks
  • ½ tbsp cornflour
  • ¼ tsp grond cinnamon
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 60ml water


  1. To make the oats: place oats, cinnamon, nutmeg and sugar into a medium sized bowl and stir briefly to combine.
  2. Add in the apple sauce and milk and mix until well combined. Cover the bowl and place in the fridge overnight.
  3. Make the filling: Placed chopped up apples, cornflour, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, sugar and water into a small saucepan and place over a medium heat.
  4. Bring to a boil. Once boiling, turn the heat down to low and cook for 5-7 mins until the apples are tender.
  5. If you make the apple sauce the night before, you may need to add 1 tbsp of water before you warm the filling up in the morning.
  6. To serve: place the oats into a bowl first then top with the apple pie filling. It is fine to serve warm or cold although I prefer warm in the microwave for 1-2 mins.img_2604

Raspberry Jam Overnight Oats

So this was definitely my favourite recipe,the oats are wonderful but it is the jam that makes this. I love raspberry so I am hooked. It is very sweet so if your looking to satisfy your sweet tooth this is the way to do it!img_2635


For the raspberry chia jam:

  • ½ cup fresh raspberries
  • ½ tbsp raw honey
  • ½ tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds

For the overnight oats:

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • ½ tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp raw honey (optional – only if you want the oats sweeter)


  1. For the jam: Place the raspberries, honey and lemon juice in a bowl. Using a fork, mash the raspberries until they begin to break down and resemble thick jam. Stir in the chia seeds, cover with a lid and set in the refrigerator overnight.
  2. For the oats: In a large bowl combine all oats ingredients until thoroughly mixed. Cover and store in the refrigerator overnight.
  3. To serve: Layer overnight oats with the raspberry chia jam. Feel free to garnish with fresh raspberries. I always eat my oats cold but you can warm it up if you wish. Enjoy!img_2647
