When I was a kid, my dad would occasionally make cinnamon apples for a late night treat and the entire house smelled like a warm apple pie. When you microwave apples, the natural sweetness emerges and there's no need to add any sugar! They are a delicious snack on their own, but if you're looking to spice up your overnight oats, give this a try!
Apple Cinnamon Overnight Oats
For the oatmeal:
1/2 cup gluten free rolled oats
1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or your favorite plant based milk)
A dash of salt
A few drops of liquid stevia
Mix together and cover. Refrigerate for a least a few hours, or overnight.
For the apples:
Dash of cinnamon
Core and chop apple and put into a microwave safe dish. Sprinkle with lots of cinnamon! Microwave for 2-ish minutes, until apples are soft. Give them a quick stir and allow to cool for a few minutes.
When ready to eat, give your oats a quick stir, top with cinnamon apples and your favorite nut butter. I used Abby's Better French Toast Pecan for this serving and WOWZA!
You could eat this for dessert, it's so naturally sweet and delicious! ENJOY! XO
Food is fuel.
I love to cook and bake recipes that incorporate healthy whole foods and those nutritious macro and micronutrients into our daily diets. I also like to make treats though, because let's face it, everyone loves a good sweet now and then! My favorite part about cooking, though, is sharing my latest recipes with others. ENJOY! XO
