Apple Pie Overnight Oats

There’s got to be something as easy as instant oatmeal that you can make fresh, right? Yes! This is too easy, and as far as I’m concerned, it’s faster overall than pulling over on the way to work and waiting in line at a drive-thru for one of their breakfasts. Recipes can sometimes be intimidating, but I find that once you have worked through them the first time, you can’t really deny how quickly you can throw them together again, especially once you’ve tasted the finished product!

Some of these you can use for other recipes; it’s great having them in the pantry all the time to quickly throw something together!

Take some common pantry items and see what you can do! Here’s everything put together in a portable storage container you can take to school or the office or eat before you leave home in the morning.

 

 

I made more than one container divided into portions. Overnight oats left more than 48 hours should probably be thrown out. I prefer to portion out the dry ingredients into containers for the week and then add the wet ingredients the night before. Here, I would add the syrup and milk as wet ingredients or risk it not mixing evenly or the oats become mushy.

Crispy apples, pecans, and cinnamon sprinkled oatmeal!

Here’s the recipe I’ve adapted to make sugar-free:

I’m going to start posting reviews. I recently read this book to my kids only letting them watch the movie once we were done. I believe this way, there’s less anxiety and they know the ending, so anything “scary” they might see, we have already talked about. //ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?ServiceVersion=20070822&OneJS=1&Operation=GetAdHtml&MarketPlace=US&source=ac&ref=qf_sp_asin_til&ad_type=product_link&tracking_id=dreamecrit-20&marketplace=amazon&region=US&placement=059035342X&asins=059035342X&linkId=26abed5e6f0d683339a14f8fd98668c6&show_border=false&link_opens_in_new_window=false&price_color=333333&title_color=0066C0&bg_color=FFFFFF
