Scale

Ingredients

For the Overnight Oats

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 tbsp ground flax
  • 2 tsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp lemon or orange zest
  • 1 tsp apple pie spice or 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • pinch of sea salt
  • scant 2/3 cup plant-based milk of choice 
  • optional: 1 tbsp raisins and/or walnuts

For the Apple

  • 1 medium-sized apple, diced
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • optional: sprinkle of coconut sugar or drizzle of maple syrup

Instructions

  1. Mix the overnight oats ingredients together in a container until there are no clumps remaining. Set aside.
  2. In a small saucepan, bring the apple ingredients to a light simmer. Cook, stirring often, until the liquid is more or less gone. This should take about 10 minutes on medium-high heat.
  3. Scoop the apples on top of the overnight oats mixture. Let cool for a few minutes then cover and place in the fridge overnight.
  4. In the morning, they’ll be ready to enjoy. 

Notes

To make these apple pie protein oats, omit the maple syrup (unless using unsweetened protein), add 1 scoop of vegan vanilla protein powder and increase the liquid to 1 cup. You can also do a 1/2 scoop of protein, omit the maple syrup and leave the liquid at 2/3 cup. 

They come out fairly sweet with 2 tsp of maple syrup so you could reduce it to 1 tsp for less sugar. For a sugar-free option, sweeten with stevia, to taste.
