For day number 3 of my 5-days-of overnight oats, I am going to be sharing Apple Pie Overnight Oats! This recipe is Mark’s favorite and if you are an apple pie lover like he is, you’re sure to like these as well.
Apples and cinnamon speak comfort food to me. My mom made homemade applesauce almost every September when I was growing up with apples that we picked from the trees behind our house. After long soccer practices I enjoyed coming home to a huge bowl of fresh applesauce with a big pinch of cinnamon on top. Now I enjoy this combo in the form of overnight oats when I get to my desk at work after a long morning run.
Out of all my overnight oats, these are probably the sweetest—still 100% naturally sweetened though. Whip out this recipe when you’re feeling an extra sweet breakfast, missing the comforting flavor of apple pie, or are just looking for a new way to spruce up your breakfast.
Give these apple pie overnight oats a try! You’ve sure to fall in love just as I have. As always, if you try these overnight oats, be sure to take a picture and tag me in it on Instagram @thelocalsprout. I can’t wait to hear what you think!

Author: The Local Sprout
Recipe type: Breakfast
Cuisine: Gluten Free, Vegan
½ cup rolled oats (ensure gf certified if gluten free)
½ banana, sliced
¼ cup unsweetened applesauce
1 tsp honey
½ tsp cinnamon
⅓ cup nut milk (I used almond milk)
1 tsp hemp seeds (optional)
Mix and mash all ingredients in a quart-sized mason jar (a fork works well to mash the banana and combine the sticky honey). Refrigerate overnight (or at least 3 hours). Enjoy warm (microwaved for 1-2 minutes) or cold—I enjoy these overnight oats warm and toasty in the winter, but also love them cold in the summer!
