This recipe makes 1 serving

For the oats:

  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Pinch ground nutmeg
  • ⅓ cup skim milk (or unsweetened vanilla almond milk)
  • ¼ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract

For the apple pie filling:

  • ½ medium apple, cored and chopped into small cubes
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Pinch nutmeg
  • Pinch salt
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ teaspoon lemon juice

For the oats:

Place oats, chia seeds, cinnamon, and nutmeg into a medium bowl and stir until combined.

Stir in the almond milk, applesauce, honey and vanilla until the mixture is well combined. Place the oat mixture into a container with a lid. Cover and refrigerate overnight.


For the filling (you can make this in the morning, or the night before and microwave it the next day):

Place the apple, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and water in a small saucepan over medium heat.

Bring to a boil and continuously stir mixture. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to low. Cook for 5 minutes. Add lemon juice and stir frequently, until the apples are tender (soft, but still firm).

Serve hot (to warm, place in the microwave for 1 to 2 minutes) or cold, by topping the oats with the apple pie filling.
