Keyword Apple Cinnamon Overnight Oats


  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats (not quick or instant)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 large apple peeled and grated
  • 1/8 tsp kosher salt

For caramelized apple topping

  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 large apple peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp water


  • Add the oats, milk, grated apple and salt to a large bowl (microwave-safe if you want to serve warm) and stir to evenly combine. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  • To make caramelized apple topping, melt butter in a cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add apple and brown sugar and cook until apple is starting to caramelize on the bottom, about 2 minutes. Flip apples, add the water and cover until soft, about 5 minutes. Add more water if the pan gets dry before the apples are soft. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  • Serve overnight oats cold from the fridge, or microwave 1 minute before topping with apple.
