You will have to convince your taste buds that this jar of overnight oats packed with chopped apples, cinnamon, nutmeg and walnuts is not a big ol slice of apple pie a la mode! The best part is that you get all this goodness without ever having to turn on your stove or microwave.
“Overnight oats” is a online phenomenon where old fashioned oats are mixed with either liquid or yoghurt, sit in the fridge overnight and then are enjoyed the next morning as a creamy, dense porridge with the toppings of your choice. This recipe makes breakfast, pre-workout and post-workout meals super easy as you can prepare the oats in a portable container the night before and grab it from the fridge as you walk out the door.
Jackie’s Tip ?: For a little impressive brunch entertaining, you can layer the overnight oats in a pretty jar or French terrine like the one above and below, alternating your toppings of raw nuts, chopped apple and creamy oats. Finish each jar with dashes of cinnamon and nutmeg and drizzles of maple syrup. Watch the eyes of your guests as they goo goo and gah gah over your presentation of this simple and delicious dish!
