Apple Cinnamon Overnight Oats

This recipe for apple cinnamon overnight oats couldn't be easier to make. Prep takes only five minutes! —Sarah Farmer, Taste of Home Executive Culinary Director
  • Total Time
    Prep: 5 min. + chilling
  • Makes
    1 serving


  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 medium Gala or Honeycrisp apple, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon raisins
  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Dash salt
  • Toasted chopped nuts, optional


  • In a small container or Mason jar, combine all ingredients. Seal; refrigerate overnight. Makes 1 serving.
Sarah's Notes:
  • Many folks love it cold, but I like to heat it up a little since I'm not a big fan of it right out of the fridge.
  • Go ahead and use any type of milk you'd like. Unsweetened almond milk adds a nice subtle nuttiness.
  • Add a handful of nuts for crunch, flavor and extra health benefits.

      I like to layer my jars, so I started with half of everything. Oats first, salt, cinnamon next. Then I topped that with 1/2 a teaspoon of chia seeds. Next came the apple and raisins. Repeat once more. Then I pour in the milk, which in my case was almond milk. You could also use shelled pumpkin or sunflower seeds if you want some crunch.
