Frequently asked questions

How do you keep apples from browning in overnight oats?

The apple mixed into the oatmeal will not brown since it is stirred into the yogurt, and then covered. We recommend chopping and adding the topping of extra diced apple just before enjoying the oats to avoid the apple becoming brown.

What is the best fruit to put in overnight oats?

We love apples paired with the spices in this specific overnight oats recipe, but really any favorite fruit will work in overnight oats! Be sure to check out all of our overnight oats recipes! We have a variety of recipes from peaches and cream overnight oats to banana bread overnight oats.

What milk is best for overnight oats?

You can make overnight oats with any milk, dairy, or non-dairy. We typically like to use unsweetened almond milk because it’s low in calories and tastes great.

Variations

Apple pie overnight oats are so easy to change up and customize to your preference. Here are some options:

  • Use a different fruit: Try this recipe with peaches, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, cherries, or mango. If you’re changing the fruit, you may want to also omit the ginger and allspice.
  • Change the yogurt: We love vanilla yogurt in this recipe, but an apple or cinnamon-flavored yogurt would be great too!
  • More toppings: Some other toppings we love are unsweetened coconut flakes, chopped pecans or walnuts, mini chocolate chips, and/or granola.

Meal Prep & Storage

This recipe is perfect for meal prep! It’s super easy to make the day before, so you don’t have to worry about breakfast in the morning. Store overnight oats in the refrigerator in an airtight container or in mason jars for about 4 to 5 days. Before enjoying, give the oats a good stir and add an extra splash of milk, if you’d like.

We do not recommend storing overnight oats in the freezer.
