Paleo/Vegan Overnight Apple Pie Oats 


Ingredients

1/2 inch a Large apple chopped into 1 cubes (about 2/3 cup), I like Fujis

Full Fat Coconut Milk

1 Tbsp Pure maple syrup + additional for serving optional *read notes

1 Cup Rolled old fashioned oatmeal

1/2 Tbsp Cinnamon

3/4 Cup + 2 Tbsp Unsweetened vanilla almond milk ( I mixed even with coconut milk measurements)

1/4 Cup + 2 Tbsp Unsweetened apple sauce

For the topping:

1 Tbsp Crushed Walnuts

1 Tbsp Rolled old fashioned oatmeal

1/2 Tbsp Coconut sugar

1 tsp Coconut oil softened to room temperature (should be the consistency of softened butter)

Instructions

Place the chopped apple into a medium, micro-wave safe bowl and fill with coconut milk until the apples are JUST covered. Cover with a lid (or a plate) and microwave for 4 minutes, or until the apples are tender and begin to soften.

Drain the milk and add in the maple syrup. Cover the bowl again and microwave an additional 2-3 minutes until the apples are fairly soft and the syrup has absorbed into the apples a little bit.

Using a fork mash the apples, but leave them a little bit chunky for texture. Divide between two cups. Note: your maple syrup won’t be totally absorbed into the apples, this is normal. Just divide that between the 2 cups as well.

In a medium bowl, mix the oatmeal and cinnamon together. Add in the almond milk and apple sauce and stir until well combined.

Divide the oatmeal mixture between the two cups and refrigerate overnight.

To make the crumbs:

Mix together the walnuts  oatmeal and coconut sugar in a small bowl. Add in the coconut oil and mix, using your hands, until crumbly.

Spread the mixture onto a microwave-safe plate and microwave for 1 minute. Stir, and the microwave for an additional 30-60 seconds until lightly golden brown. Your crumbs WON’T be crunchy yet.

Place into the refrigerator for at least 1 hour to harden (I just make mine at the same time I make the oats and let them sit overnight.)

The next morning, divide the crumbs between the cups and DEVOUR.

Recipe Notes

I recommend using 1 Tbsp syrup and tasting in the morning. If you need sweeter, stir in a little more syrup.
