These Apple Pie Overnight Oats are a cross between your grandma’s famous apple pie and the millennial generation’s inclination towards being on the move 24/7. Just put oats, fruit, and spices into a bowl or jar, cover with milk, and refrigerate overnight! When you wake up the oats will be soft and the flavors will be nicely blended. Healthy breakfast doesn’t get much easier!
Do you wanna know what getting your master’s is like? Entering 1’s and 0’s into a computer all day, everyday. And labelling test tubes while you watch Netflix. And having a constant sense that you’re forgetting to do something, and trying to fix that by creating no less than 3 ongoing to-do lists.
And I learned something the other day about the Dutch. They recognize the feeling of being “burnt out” as a medical condition. A medical condition in which your doctor can prescribe you to take off from work or school or whatever. How great is that?
I’m not saying that labelling all these test tubes is burning me out or anything, especially when I have everyone here on Live Eat Learn to keep me grounded and thinking about things I love (i.e. FOOD). But for the days when you’re a bit closer to a burn out than you’d like, I think I have a solution…Apple Pie Overnight Oats.
These apple overnight oats are topped with cooked apples in a gooey almond butter sauce. They take max 15 minutes to assemble, and can be made a few days ahead so you have breakfast for the week. Because who needs a burn out when you can have the healthy equivalent of apple pie for breakfast?
