Description

Your favorite fall dessert in the form of a cozy and healthy breakfast! Creamy overnight oats are topped with warm caramelized cinnamon apple. They’re quick and easy to make the day before, and can be meal prep for the week.


Ingredients

Scale

oats

  • 1 cup rolled oats (90 g)
  • 1/2 cup no dairy milk (120 ml)
  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt (60 g)
  • 1 tbsp almond butter
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 pinch ground nutmeg

Caramelized apple

  • 1 medium-large apple
  • 1/3 cup coconut milk (80 g)
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar (20 g)
  • 2 tsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Toppings

  • Pecan nuts, or any other nut of your choice

Instructions

  1. Prepare the oats. Add all the ingredients for the oats to a blender and blend until smooth. Taste and adjust the quantity of maple syrup depending on your preferences.
  2. Add the blended oats to a large or two smaller jars.
  3. Cover and place the jar in the fridge for at least 4 hours or overnight to set.
  4. Prior to serving, prepare the caramelized apple. Rince, core and chop the apple into medium cubes. You can keep the skin if it’s organic.
  5. Combine the coconut milk and sugar in a small sauce pan on the stove. Heat on medium to bring to a boil. Then reduce to a low simmer and cook for 15-25 minutes, until it browns and gets the consistency of a thick and silky caramel sauce. Stir frequently to avoid burning.
  6. While the caramel is cooking, heat the coconut oil in a skillet. Add the diced apple and cinnamon and sauté on medium for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the apple is tender.
  7. Once the caramel sauce has thickened, remove from heat and stir in maple syrup and vanilla. Add the cooked apple and stir to combine.
  8. When ready to serve, remove the oatmeal from fridge and give it a quick stir. Add the caramelized apple on top and garnish with pecan nuts. Enjoy!

Notes

  1. Storage: blended oats without the apple can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. If you make a large batch, scoop out 1 cup for a single serving and add the toppings.
  2. For gluten-free option, make sure to use certified gluten-free oats.
