These creamy overnight oats get their sweetness and spice from a swirl of apple butter. 

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1/2 cup vanilla Greek yogurt (My favorite is Stonyfield whole milk Greek)
  • 2 Tablespoons diced dried apples
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch salt
  • 2 Tablespoons apple butter
  • Diced apples and pecans for serving

Instructions

In a bowl, mix together the oats, almond milk, yogurt, dried apples, cinnamon, salt and chia seeds (if desired). Pour half of the mixture into a glass, swirling in a Tablespoon of the apple butter. Add the remaining oats and swirl in the remaining apple butter. Cover with saran wrap or a lid and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, top with diced apples and pecans and serve cold or heat in the microwave for about a minute. I've found I can eat these 3-4 days after refrigerating without losing that great chewy texture.

Recipe Notes

This recipe is VERY forgiving. Feel free to use cow's milk in place of almond milk and your favorite yogurt. You can even use all milk if you want, though the mixture will be slightly less creamy. This makes creamy oats with a decent amount of liquid. If you prefer it thicker, feel free to reduce the liquid by 1/4 cup or add 1 Tablespoon chia seeds.
