Calling all overnight oats lovers! You’re in the right place 😀 From peanut butter overnight oats to lemon cheesecake overnight oats to chocolate chai overnight oats, the love for all things overnight oats is the real deal here at Fit Foodie Finds.

Apple Season = Best Season

Minnesota is an apple state, so I’ve started seeing signs for apple orchards pop up everywhere. Tis the season! I feel like the only things we grow in Minnesota are corn, soy, root vegetables, and APPLES.

Obviously, we had to come up with an overnight oats recipe to satisfy our fall-is-coming apple cravings! This vegan overnight oats recipe calls for shredded apples. We’ve made a similar recipe before with chunks of apples and shredded is so much better!

Overnight Oats Ingredients

You get a little bit of apple in every single bite and it’s just perfect. Here’s what else you need:

  • Rolled oats
  • Orange juice
  • Maple syrup
  • Almond milk
  • Vanilla extract
  • Ground flax seed
  • Cinnamon
  • Nutmeg

Make This Recipe Your Own!

If you’ve got a favorite apple variation…use that! Options are endless. My personal favorite is the honey crisp apple because it’s that perfect combo of sweet and tart.

As you can see, this recipe is very similar to our basic vegan overnight oats recipe, but we used ground flax instead of chia seeds.

amp up the protein!

If you’d like a little bit more protein in your oats, you can always add some Greek yogurt (which would not be vegan, but still delish!) or even a scoop of your favorite protein powder. Check out our vegan protein powder recommendations HERE.

Overnight Oats Tips

Here are some tips and tricks that we always keep in our back pocket to help make the best tasting overnight oats ever:

  • Feel free to double or triple any overnight oats recipe on FFF.
  • Option to swap out any milk or liquid you prefer.
  • Quick cooking oats work just as well as rolled oats. However, I prefer the texture of rolled oats.
  • Add more protein to your overnight oats with a scoop of protein powder.

How Long Do Overnight Oats Last?

  • As long as there is no fresh fruit in the recipe, overnight oats will stay good in the refrigerator for up to 4 or 5 days.
  • Separate your overnight oats into single-serve jars or meal-prep containers for a grab-and-go option all week long!
