Attention, guys. Your breakfast is about to get 10 times better.
The reason is this super delicious jar of crunchy apple overnight oats that’s about to be your favorite new breakfast. Even better: this recipe is the ultimate proof that healthy breakfast requires zero effort. Are you as excited as I am?All you got to do is buy all oft he ingredients, although I’m betting that most of you already have all of them in your pantry. And then you’ll open the jar, put all of the ingredients into the jar, close the jar, and place it in the fridge overnight. I’ll put this into bullet points, so we can all remember it better ;-).
- Cut the apples into small pieces.
- Mix all of the ingredients in a jar.
- Place that jar into the fridge.
- Enjoy it in the morning with a smile.
I don’t think anyone can now argue that eating healthy in the morning is time-consuming or expensive. Of course, there are a few hacks that will take your overnight oats to the next level. For starters, I am a huge fan of apples in my overnight oats. Especially sweet and sour apples such as Honeycrunch. They add a natural sweetness and tangyness to the oats. Also, they are rich in vitamin C and the fiber pectin, which keep us satisfied longer. Meaning you won’t be craving that mid-morning snack anymore. Honeycrunch apples definitely kick your morning butt out of the door with this recipe, and they stay crunchy even if soaked overnight with the oats and oat milk.
The other overnight oat hack is cardamom. Now, I know that not everyone is too keen on cardamom. I think it needs to go into overnight oats, but you might want to start with a pinch and then work your way up as you get used to the taste.
I also like to make my overnight oats with oat milk lately, because it’s a naturally sweet plant-based milk and usually requires no additional sweetener. So if you’re currently fasting sugar (not fruit sugar), then you can still enjoy this delicious breakfast.
