Take 5 minutes to prep breakfast for the family before bed and have the most delicious, whole-grain breakfast that tastes exactly like Apple Cobbler!
My all-time favorite summer breakfast is overnight oats. I love that you can have breakfast made for you when you wake up with little to no effort at all. Plus, the flavor variations are endless! The best part is, there is no baking at all. All you have to do is mix everything together and let it sit in the fridge over night.
My favorite way to make overnight oats is with a rolled oat + chia seed + almond milk base. From there, I add in different things to get the flavor I want! In this particular recipe I used peeled and chopped apples, apple sauce, and cinnamon to get that Apple Cobbler taste that everyone loves. I even made a delicious “crumble” that’s made with 100% whole grains and no refined sugars!
If you’re getting really creative, you can have the kids help separate out this Apple Cobbler Overnight Oats Recipe into single serving portions and use mason jars. Everyone loves mason jars. This way, when your kids wake up, they can just wake up in the morning and get their own breakfast out of the fridge!
Overnight oats are the perfect breakfast for school mornings as well because no baking, mixing or cooking is required. It is one of the few breakfasts that is literally ready in seconds in the morning. And depending on what kind of container you use, they can be transportable and you can eat them on your way to school – or work for parents!
