• 1/3 cup of thick cut oats (do not use instant or it will turn to mush)
  • ½ cup of unsweetened almond milk (or milk of choice)
  • ½ tbsp of pure maple syrup
  • ¼ tsp pure vanilla
  • 1 small apple, chopped into small cubes
  • 2 tbsp raisins
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • Pinch of sea salt


  1. The night before, combine oats, almond milk, maple syrup and vanilla in a large mason jar and refrigerate overnight.
  2. In the morning, your oats will have soaked up all of the milk and become creamy.
  3. To the mason jar, add your chopped apples, raisins, cinnamon, nutmeg and sea salt. Mix to combine and dive in!


If time is not your friend in the mornings, then chop your apples the night before while you are prepping the oats. Just put them in an airtight container with a little squeeze of lemon juice to prevent them from browning. One less step to do in the morning!
