My New Love; Overnight Oats

I don’t know what it is like in your household in the morning but in mine it is crazy. One of the tips I have learned is to get up before my children and set up the house for them. I get the toys put out for the day, do a bit cleaning and start their breakfast.

Ninety five percent of the time I forget to eat my own breakfast.

It’s easy to do. I just keep telling myself that I will eat in ten minutes, then next thing I know it’s ten am and my stomach is a grumbling. That’s why I love overnight oats so much. I can make my breakfast the night before while I cook supper!

In the past I have tried to get into the habit of eating overnight oats and have failed miserably. It was the realization that I did not like the greek yogurt in the recipes that I was using.

My two favourite shake/smoothies are Peanut Butter & Banana, Apple Pie. I decided to google Peanut Butter overnight oats and found this grate recipe at Minimalist Baker.

For the Apple Pie recipe my google results were not as satisfying and I decided to use my Nana’s Apple Pie filling recipe with some tweaks.

Nana's Apple Pie

Nana’s Apple Pie Overnight Oats

1 apple (peeled and sliced)

1 Tablespoon of Margarine (I lean-to heaping)

1 TSP  of Vanilla

1 TSP Maple Syrup

1 TSP of Cinnamon (I lean-to heaping because of my insulin resistance)


1/2 cup of Almond Milk

1 TSP Cinnamon

1 TSP Maple Syrup

1/2 Cup Steeled Oats

Step 1: In a small sauce pan mix together the filling ingredients, and cook until apples are soft. Once soft set pot aside to cool.

Step 2: Mix together oats ingredients adding Oats and Apple Pie Filling to last.

Step 3: Refrigerate overnight to enjoy in the morning.

Overnight oats are just one of the things I am adding to my routine to help me get a bit more healthier.
