So it isn't technically fall yet, but it is after labor day, and that's good enough for me! I don't want to go full speed into fall mode and overdo it (which is actually impossible because there can never be too much fall), but I'm starting to ease into it.
I had my first pumpkin coffee of the season, and I so badly want to throw on my over-sized sweaters. But then I go outside and it's 80 or 90 degrees, so that may have to wait. I want pumpkin everything, but I'm trying to hold off on going too crazy. So to ease my fall fever, I've been feeling apple happy - specifically cinnamon apple and apple cider.
I was thinking about breakfast the other day, and then it hit me. What better way to incorporate apples than into my overnight oats? It's the perfect mix of fall flavors to start off your day. Plus it's super easy to make, as all overnight oats are.
Here's what you'll need:
-1 cup rolled oats
-1 apple, cubed
-1 tbsp chia seeds
-1 tsp ground flax seed
-1 tsp cinnamon
-1/2 tsp vanilla extract
-1/2 tsp nutmeg
-1 tbsp maple syrup
-1 cup unsweetened almond milk
-1 tsp light brown pure cane sugar
-pinch of sea salt
1) In a tupperware container or bowl mix, together all of the ingredients. Refrigerate overnight.
2) Split the oats between two bowls or jars, serve, and enjoy!
