Sometimes, it’s easy to run out of time to have a good breakfast in the morning. And a lot of people struggle to find good breakfast ideas that don’t require a lot of prep. That’s when a recipe like this apple cinnamon overnight oatmeal comes in handy! This recipe makes an easy breakfast idea and is perfect for singles who want simple breakfasts.

I absolutely adore overnight oatmeal recipes, particularly when I know I’m going to have a busy day. There is very little prep and that is done the night before! I am going to be sharing some different recipes for overnight oatmeal, but hopefully, once you are comfortable making the oats, you’ll start experimenting with your own flavors!

This recipe calls for a batch of baked apples with cinnamon which you can find here.

During the summer months, I will actually eat this cold, out of the fridge…and it’s nice and refreshing! During the winter months, I like to warm it up a bit! Both are very tasty!

This recipe is naturally gluten-free. Make it dairy-free by using coconut or almond milk.
