Easy Overnight Oats: Apple and Cinnamon

Apples and Cinnamon Essential Oil

Have you tried overnight oats? I resisted this healthy breakfast trend for MONTHS before I finally pulled out my mason jars and got my ingredients together. I've tried several recipes, and have a basic one that works perfectly fine, but last week I stumbled across a yummy fall flavor idea.

For my basic  overnight oats, I use a half cup of oats, a half cup of unsweetened almond milk and a tablespoon of chia seeds. I mix these together in "jelly" size mason jars and put them in the refrigerator overnight. In the morning, I add a scoop of Young Living Spiced Vanilla Pure Protein Complete and a spoonful of frozen berries.

Use apples and cinnamon essential oil to spice up your overnight oats

For my fall-flavored apple and cinnamon overnight oats, I simply added chopped up apple and 2 drops of Cinnamon Bark Vitality Essential Oil. I stirred this up and put it in the refrigerator overnight. In the morning, I stirred it up again and added a sprinkle of brown sugar (you could also use maple syrup).  They were delicious! If you're not a big fan of cinnamon, I recommend only using 1 drop of the essential oil - it's pretty strong.

I typically eat my overnight oats cold, right out of the refrigerator, but there's no reason you couldn't heat them up on the stove, or even a microwave if you take them to work with you.

What's your favorite flavor of overnight oats?

When cooking with essential oils, please pay attention to the quality of your oils. I use only Young Living essential oils, branded and approved specifically for ingestion.
