Apple Cinnamon Overnight Oats Recipe

  • Author: Bruna

Made with fresh apple and applesauce, these apple cinnamon overnight oats are easy to prep and a healthy, wholesome, make-ahead breakfast.


Units Scale
  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger powder
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or milk of choice)
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 medium apple, diced into bite-sized pieces and cored (peeling optional)


  1. Combine oats, chia seeds, cinnamon powder, and ginger powder in a container or bowl. Stir to mix well. Add almond milk, applesauce, and vanilla extract. Stir to combine thoroughly. Fold in diced apple.
  2. Cover and refrigerate oats overnight (or at least 4 hours). The oatmeal softens and thickens into a pudding-like consistency.
  3. When ready to consume, uncover the container, stir the mixture again before serving, add toppings if you like, and enjoy!


Use any kind of apple you enjoy eating. I usually go for honeycrisp, gala, or pink lady apples.

The apple cinnamon overnight oats can be refrigerated for up to 3 days in an airtight container.

I find it easier to mix the ingredients in a big container or bowl. However, you can also make this recipe directly in an individual jar, such as mason jars or weck jars. For the amount of ingredients listed for this recipe, you might need 3 to 4 jars.
