This Apple Cinnamon Overnight Oats recipe tastes just like apple pie. Oats, cinnamon, applesauce, and vegan yogurt come together in one jar to create a warm and naturally gluten free breakfast you can take on the go. The perfect recipe for meal prep!


  • 1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats, (not quick oatmeal)*
  • 1/2 cup soy milk*

  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce

  • 1/4 cup plain vegan yogurt. I use coconut yogurt

  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup or sweetener of choice

  • 1/2 tablespoon each chia seeds and ground flax seed

  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon 

  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

This recipe is easily doubled, tripled, etc.. for meal prep throughout the week


  1. Refrigerate overnight. Add more plant milk or sweetener if desired.

  2. Serve warm or cold with another pinch of cinnamon. Add extra toppings if you like, dollop of vegan butter, sliced apples, berries, nuts, granola, etc…

  3. Enjoy! Step by step photos, FAQ, suggestions in above post and in notes*

This oatmeal recipe is inspired by dozens of recipes and is tweaked to my liking😊



  • Oats: I buy Quaker old fashioned rolled oats or Bob’s red mill, both are gluten free, always check the label to make sure though.  
  • Plant milk: I prefer the taste of soy milk for my oatmeal and it is higher in protein but of course use your favorite, oat, pea, almond milk, etc..! 
  • Recipe does not work with steel cut oats (takes more liquid and longer soak time) or instant oatmeal (too mushy in my opinion)
  • I always make in a bowl unless I will be transporting it (school or work)  then I will use a mason jar or sealable container 
  • Store: will keep covered in fridge for 5 days
  • I use 16 oz mason jars (holds 2 cups) work perfectly for 1 serving of overnight oats with toppings, 8 oz are too small.
