Apple Cinnamon Overnight Oats

I’m a morning person. I know it is not easy for many people to get up as early as I do and make breakfast. That’s why I’m a proponent of make-ahead breakfasts, especially overnight oats. I believe there is a style of oatmeal for everyone. Oats are a very good source of fiber and are high in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. I personally prefer steel cut oats but use the oats you like.

Breakfast

Serves 1

Ingredients:

  • 1 apple, chopped
  • 1/4 cup steel cut oats
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon honey

Instructions:

  1. Place all ingredients, except the oats, in a blender and blend.
  2. Pour oats into a jar.
  3. Pour the liquid into a jar, shake and refrigerate.
  4. In the morning you can eat the oatmeal out of the jar or pour it into a bowl and heat it for 3 minutes in the microwave. I like to top mine with granola and maple syrup.
