  1. Cut just over half of the apple into bite-sized cubes, and add these to a medium pan. Mince or grate the other half of the apple and add to a mason jar or airtight container.
  2. To the pan, add the water, maple syrup, and cinnamon. Cook over medium-high heat, and allow the apples to soften for about 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat and let cool.
  3. Add all of the other ingredients to the jar, and mix to combine.  Add the cooked apple chunks to the top. Cover and let it sit overnight in the fridge. The next morning, top with yogurt and enjoy!

It’s amazing but it’s also a lot! 😂 Even for me, I can have quite a bit for breakfast! So next time I’ll try to do 0.75 serving or maybe half.

L A - March 8, 2024, 7:09 p.m.

We love it!!! 🙏🏼

Suluhu - Feb. 14, 2024, 8:32 p.m.

Whenevr I make this I secretly add an extra apple to the stew that I enjoy with some of the coconut yogurt in the evening 😋

Male - Feb. 14, 2024, 3:54 p.m.

We love it

Anita - Feb. 13, 2024, 7:30 a.m.

My new favorite 🤤

Kimberly - Feb. 6, 2024, 7:24 p.m.

This was VERY good. I’m not much of an overnight oats fan but I love green apple with cinnamon. I recommend peeling your apples tho cuz it creates a weird texture.

PUL Team - Feb. 7, 2024, 1:46 a.m.

Yay we're so happy that the apple pie overnight oats were enjoyed, Kimberly! Thanks for the tip too 🙂

Desirée - Jan. 23, 2024, 8:35 p.m.

A go-to for my work week.

Joy - Dec. 4, 2023, 12:45 a.m.

Delicious and kept me full for a few hours!

Miranda - Sept. 24, 2023, 7:10 p.m.

I added vegan protein powder for more protein.

Annemarieke - Aug. 28, 2023, 9:28 p.m.

Ooooooh! This was really really really good! 💛

Chrissi - Aug. 28, 2023, 8:10 a.m.

I prepared 2 jars yesterday and just had one for breakfast - sooo delicious. I‘m looking forward to having the second one this week. I‘m definitely making it again soon 👍🏻 Perfect fall feeling 😋🍂🍁

Misty - Aug. 7, 2023, 2:38 p.m.


Aaron Lents - July 13, 2023, 2:13 a.m.

Tastes amazing

Vassiliki - June 5, 2023, 7:19 p.m.

Excellent idea to use some leftover apples mixed with cinnamon and sugar from the apple pie that I made!

Abi Ford - May 27, 2023, 8:25 p.m.

The apple pie overnight oats were delicious! I made 10 mason jars for me and my husband. We both loved it.

PUL Team - May 27, 2023, 10:40 p.m.

Mmm sounds lovely, Abi - enjoy!

Martunia - March 14, 2023, 9:12 p.m.

I make this recipe whenever I have apples on hand and I feel like cooking a bit before I go to bed. These oats are on my breakfast menu only on special occasions, so I can appreciate the taste more once I get to have them 😋

PUL Team - March 16, 2023, 5:52 a.m.

Thanks for taking the time to share your experience with the overnight oats, Martunia!

Lissy - Feb. 11, 2023, 8:46 a.m.

It's a breakfast worth waking up for!! I usually take it with me for trips, since it's easy to transport and it saves me a lot of time in the mornings:) but also for weekdays it's just so comforting to have, and feels more like a dessert than a wholesome breakfast:) can't wait to try all the other recipes!!
Also wanted to say a huge thank you to you, Sadia. You're such a lovely person, a real sunshine in my opinion. All of your videos, either recipes or teatime tuesdays are incredibly comfort to watch, and bring so much joy to me!!

PUL Team - Feb. 11, 2023, 5:10 p.m.

Awe, Lissy, you're too kind! So glad the PUL content is being enjoyed. Happy cooking 🤗

Anna Dolgos - Feb. 10, 2023, 11 a.m.

This is my favourite overnight oats recipe, I have made it so many times now and I love it! The instructions are clear, the video is beautiful (as always) and the end product is fantastically delicious. It is a great way to use up left over apples and if you have a craving for apple pies, but don't have the time to bake some, this is the perfect fast recipe to satisfy your cravings.

PUL Team - Feb. 10, 2023, 9:28 p.m.

Oh thank you for the glowing feedback, Anna, it means so much ☺️

Archa - Feb. 8, 2023, 8:42 a.m.

This has become my favorite breakfast and had it for two weeks in a row. I made 5 batches and kept it for 5 days in the fridge which stayed good. I just switch up the nuts sometimes, almond also goes very well with the recipe.

PUL Team - Feb. 8, 2023, 9:52 p.m.

So happy to hear, Archa - thank you!

Shari - Dec. 16, 2022, 8:16 p.m.

Tried out the apple pie overnight oats, it was a game changer, never knew the taste would be so delicious, thanks for this wonderful recipe. :)

PUL Team - Dec. 16, 2022, 10:50 p.m.

Oh so lovely to hear, Shari, thank you! Enjoy 🤗

Victoria - Nov. 14, 2022, 8:33 a.m.

Lovely recipe. Great taste with simple ingredients. I will add “Oui” coconut 🥥 yogurt on top to take it to the next level. 😋

PUL Team - Nov. 14, 2022, 2:14 p.m.

Mmm sounds lovely, Victoria - enjoy!

Rebekah - Nov. 4, 2022, 6:59 p.m.

Mmmm...I just took my first couple of bites of this and came here to say how marvelous it tastes! I wouldn't have expected to like this one so much, but it's excellent. The almond butter adds such a richness, and the crunch of the walnuts and apples is delightful. My husband said the yogurt on top makes it feel like apple pie a la mode. :) 10/10 would make again!

PUL Team - Nov. 5, 2022, 12:08 a.m.

Woohoo! So glad it was enjoyed, Rebekah, thank you 😃

Kelsey - Oct. 16, 2022, 7:56 p.m.

Loved the Apple Pie Overnight Oats!! For us, one recipe made enough for two medium sized servings topped with a spoon of yogurt and sprinkle of granola for crunch. I modified a bit -- used 1 TBSP nut butter and 2 tsp chia seeds. For those worried about sugar content, keep in mind that the majority of the sugar is in natural form from the apples and raisins. We took it on a camping trip and heated it up for breakfast in the morning -- delicious and plan to make again. Thank you!

PUL Team - Oct. 17, 2022, 12:14 a.m.

Thank you for taking the time to share, Kelsey! We're so glad the overnight oats were enjoyed with the modifications 😃

Sharon Burton - Sept. 11, 2022, 2:36 a.m.

Love this idea, but yikes the sugar content !

PUL Team - Sept. 12, 2022, 4:17 p.m.

Hey Sharon! We personally enjoy the deliciously sweet flavour and energy that apple and syrup can provide. Feel free to add less of the sweeter ingredient if desired and adjust to taste. For example, add less syrup and more cinnamon 🙂

Sharon - Sept. 12, 2022, 7:34 p.m.

Thank you - good idea! Love anything apple so I will alter as needed 😊
So enjoy your vlogs & recipes - keep up the great work ! 👏

Pratyasha - Aug. 25, 2022, 9:32 a.m.

I had never been a fan of oats but I am a changed person now. I am actually excited to get out of bed just so I can eat my yummy fruit rich oats :D

PUL Team - Aug. 27, 2022, 6:41 a.m.

Oh, Pratyasha, thank you for the glowing feedback! Enjoy 🤗

Alyssa - Aug. 16, 2022, 5:39 p.m.

I love it! It's been hard trying to find quick vegan recipes that I like because I just transitioned to veganism. I love how I can make this the night before and eat this for breakfast which is really convenient because I start 8th grade next month. It tastes amazing and my non vegan mom loves it too, I would definitely recommend.

PUL Team - Aug. 17, 2022, 2:20 a.m.

So glad the overnight oats are being enjoyed, Alyssa! Wishing you all the best in your transition to veganism. In case you haven't seen it yet and are interested we have a beginner's guide to veganism here:….

Seema - June 14, 2022, 6:08 p.m.

Made it for the first time for my husband. Adapted it slightly based on the availability of ingredients and my taste buds. He simply couldn't help raving about it.
Was so excited that I immediately posted it in my Instagram tagging your site. Thank you so much for giving me a reason to love overnight oats!

PUL Team - June 16, 2022, 6:15 a.m.

Hey there, Seema, we're so grateful for the incredible review and support! Thank you for taking the time to share 🥰

Pby - June 3, 2022, 5:46 a.m.

Have made this multiple times and my husband and I love it. It’s perfect! Never thought I’d like overnight oats this much. Sometimes a favorite snack. Thank you.

PUL Team - June 4, 2022, 2:52 a.m.

Woohoo! So happy it's being enjoyed, Pby :)

Evie - March 27, 2022, 10:34 a.m.

I used to find overnight oats really boring but your recipes have made me actually crave for them not just for breakfast but sometimes for lunch or when I want a quick snack. They're easy to make, tastes absolutely delicious and his highly nutritious. I'm not vegan but I find myself really enjoying your recipes which in turn makes me eat plants more often!

PUL Team - March 27, 2022, 9:02 p.m.

Aw we're so happy they're being enjoyed, Evie, thank you!

Juliette - Jan. 14, 2022, 3:45 p.m.

We have been making this at least once a week for a few months now. We love to have more luxurious breakfasts during the weekend, and your oats recipes have helped us shift from croissants and pancakes to more healthy stuff. We prepare them in the morning (I love the comfort of warm oats) instead of overnight. Will have it again tomorrow morning and I'm already excited about it.

PUL Team - Jan. 14, 2022, 5:53 p.m.

Oh, Juliette, it means so much that the recipe is being enjoyed! Thank you 😊

Lea - Jan. 10, 2022, 8:11 p.m.

Can we omit maple syrup for the spiced apple bits

PUL Team - Jan. 12, 2022, 3:49 a.m.

Hi Lea, you can omit the syrup if desired. If the apples are more tart, you could add an alternative sugar or syrup to taste for sweetness 🙂

Jay - Dec. 13, 2021, 11:08 p.m.

SO good! Inspired me to make this for weeks afterwards.

PUL Team - Dec. 14, 2021, 5:08 a.m.

We're so glad it was enjoyed, Jay!

jay - Dec. 14, 2021, 5:21 a.m.

thank you so much for your reply, i’ve been watching your videos for years <33 so grateful for your help on my journey moving towards veganism!

Avneet - Dec. 8, 2021, 2:58 a.m.

Mentioned this before on IG but worth repeating: Hands down THE best overnight oats recipe. Everyone in my family enjoys this one including our 3.5 year old and 16 month old.

Could you please create other overnight oats recipe variations? (I've tried the other PUL ones as well!) And if possible, other easy breakfast recipes? They are a game changer in setting the tone for the day in a household with children lol.

Thank you for creating PUL and all that it offers!

PUL Team - Dec. 8, 2021, 3:38 a.m.

Aw, Avneet, we appreciate the kind words and the request so much! We're so happy the recipe is being enjoyed and hope to share more breakfast recipes soon 😊 Just in case you're interested and haven't already seen it yet, some more simple breakfast recipes can be found on our recipe filter page here:…

Ay - Nov. 18, 2021, 9:38 p.m.

I love oatmeal but i was getting tired of my own typical recipe so i tried this and im so glad i did. This recipe is seriously the BEST oatmeal I've ever had PERIOD! Im personally not a huge fan of the texture of overnight oats so i just cook my oats like normal and then follow the rest of the recipe as is and its seriously so delicious AND healthy and keeps me full for a few hours, which is great! I like it with pecans and cranraisins the best and i actually use peanut butter or a combo of peanut butter and almond butter because i like the apple and peanut butter combo. I usually make a large batch at the beginning of the week and separate it into portions for each morning so i can grab it, and go and pop it in the microwave once i get to work. PUL recipes never let me down!

PUL Team - Nov. 19, 2021, 2:03 a.m.

Hey there, Ay, oh my you're way too kind! A sincere thank you for the kind words, support, being here. It means so much 💚

Leila - Nov. 8, 2021, 7:58 p.m.

Now that apple season is here I’ve been making this apple pie overnight oats around once a week. I never knew overnight oats could taste this good! Recipe also works great for cooked oats as well if you want something warm.

The combo of cinnamon, maple syrup, and vanilla puts this one over the top.

PUL Team - Nov. 9, 2021, 2:38 a.m.

We're so glad the overnight oats are being enjoyed, Leila! Love apple season 🍎🍏

Miriam - Oct. 25, 2021, 5:28 a.m.

I made the apple pie oats and I loved it!!
My husband is a picky eater and he also loved it! Love using the serving calculator and the substitutions for each recipe.

PUL Team - Oct. 26, 2021, 5:13 a.m.

Woo! We're so thrilled the new website features are being enjoyed as well, Miriam, thank you 😃

Mags - Sept. 3, 2021, 8:19 a.m.

One of my favorite overnight oat recipes of all time! The cooked apples add the PERFECT texture and sweetness to my morning meal. I also love the grated apples that adda bit of freshness. I used to make apple pie overnights with applesauce, but oof... this is far superior in my opinion ◡̈

PUL Team - Sept. 4, 2021, 1:20 a.m.

Awe we appreciate this so much, Mags, so happy you're enjoying the overnight oats!

Jeni - Aug. 7, 2021, 11:16 a.m.

Made this for Brea for myself and my cousin when we were in a road trip and she said she felt like she was eating something from a cafe :) thanks for the recipe!!

PUL Team - Aug. 8, 2021, 9:47 p.m.

We're so thrilled you all enjoyed the overnight oats, Jeni, thank you for taking the time to share 🤩

Patsy - Aug. 2, 2021, 8:42 p.m.

The best!

Archana - July 27, 2021, 7:09 p.m.

I made this today, it was really yum!!!

Tamar - July 26, 2021, 10:30 p.m.

I tried numerous recipes for overnight oats in the last couple of years, and I'm glad to say that this is by far the tastiest version I've ever made!

PUL Team - July 28, 2021, 4:12 a.m.

A massive compliment, Tamar, thank you for sharing! It means so much 🤩

Jenni H. - July 25, 2021, 4:39 a.m.

My kid (9 years old) loves apple pie - when he saw this recipe he begged me to make it. So, so, good. We were both happy because it tasted amazing and I didn't have to put together breakfast in the morning when my brain only works at half capacity. (Instead of using just cinnamon, mainly because I couldn't find it in the cupboard, I used a pumpkin pie spice mix - which was a nice addition of warming spices and flavors.)

PUL Team - July 27, 2021, 12:51 a.m.

Mmm love the idea of pumpkin spice mix! So glad the recipe was enjoyed, Jenni 🥰

Vivian H. - July 23, 2021, 11:17 a.m.

My husband just can't get enough of this overnight oats, perfect for busy mornings.

Sarah - July 23, 2021, 6:15 a.m.

I LOVE this one. This recipe is great for fall and transitions well into colder weather if you use the same ingredients (except the yogurt) and heat it up.

PUL Team - July 25, 2021, 6:48 a.m.

A lovely idea, Sarah, thanks so much for sharing!

Archa - Nov. 5, 2021, 11:31 p.m.

Hi Sarah,
How do you heat it up? In the microwave?

Sarah - Nov. 6, 2021, 4:45 a.m.


You probably could heat it up in the microwave, but I just do it on the stove top. I've taken inspiration from this recipe and her comforting oatmeal recipe. For two servings I heat up one cup of oats, two cups of milk (or milk alternative) , and one banana. Meanwhile. In another pan I cook an apple with cinnamon and maple syrup and water (from this recipe).

When the banana has dissolved in the oatmeal, turn off the heat and add one tablespoon of ground flaxseed (if you like a thicker oatmeal) and the rest of the ingredients from this recipe (be sure you have the quantities for two servings). Mix until combined. Serve into bowls and divide the cooked apple, cinnamon, syrup mixture between the bowls.

Depending on how hungry you are, this actually makes 2-4 servings

Jella - July 19, 2021, 7:20 p.m.

So good! I love a sweet breakfast and this is just the perfect dessert like breakfast. I made it for a friend once and she also absolutely loved it!

Lisa - July 12, 2021, 12:06 p.m.

So, I was eating this almost daily for the last 2 Months, so you can probably guess how much I love it.
Here are some things I tried in this time with the recipe:

- Personally I don't really like the texture of porridge and overnight oats so instead of letting it sit for 12 hours, I just let it sit for 10-15 Minutes what makes it a bit more chunky but still extremely delicious.
- It is currently summer and I'm a bit lazy so I stopped cooking the apple after a few days and just added it fresh, that makes it really refreshing and more juicy in the summer months
- If you don't cook the apple you can change it to a lot of other raw fruits and it still tastes awesome, the base works really well with peaches for example

No matter what, I guess I will keep eating this for a long time, thank you Sadia for creating this wonderful recipe, it is the first time I like eating oats. <3

PUL Team - July 16, 2021, 6:12 a.m.

Mmm thank you so much, Lisa, for sharing all of this! We're so happy that you're enjoying the recipe and appreciate the insight into your experimentation with it ✨🌻

Dani - July 9, 2021, 5:29 p.m.

One of my all time favourites!

Sara - July 9, 2021, 1:42 p.m.

So delicous and easy, loved it!

Ivy - July 9, 2021, 7:42 a.m.

I cooked this instead of leaving it overnight and it was amazing. Also, really like your website!!

PUL Team - July 13, 2021, 4:53 a.m.

Thanks a bunch, Ivy! So thrilled to hear the positive feedback :)

Mand - June 28, 2021, 10:15 a.m.

Oh my gosh, this one is by far my favourite ! I've warmed it up, just like fresh baked apple pie 😁

Cris S - June 5, 2021, 4:46 p.m.

This is the absolute best from the overnight-dessert-oat series and was enjoyed by non-vegans and children too! It kept in the fridge for five days!

PUL Team - June 5, 2021, 9:58 p.m.

We're so glad the recipe was enjoyed, Cris! Thank you for sharing this 🤗😃

Cris S - May 12, 2021, 7:24 a.m.

I tried all the overnight oats and this is by far the best! Love!

Daphni - May 3, 2021, 10:39 p.m.

So... as I was preparing these for tomorrow (didn't have apples, so I used apple mousse instead), I thought I should have a spoon-full to taste how they turned out...
...and ended up eating the whole glas with my partner :)

Since they are quite high-energy, I made two servings out of the one and filled the remaining space with some fruit we had left (banana in this case).

Will definitely try the recipe again, as soon as we have some apples!

PUL Team - May 8, 2021, 10:11 p.m.

Cool idea to use apple mousse, Daphni! We're so happy you and your partner enjoyed the oats and hope you can get some more apples soon 😀🍎

Reigna - April 6, 2021, 5:56 p.m.

I love the design of your new site and how the ingredient quantity changes according to servings. it makes things so much more easier, measuring ingredients and such. I'm not vegan but your recipes make me want to have a more healthy diet overall. everything here look so delicious. and apple pie is my favorite dessert so definitely going to try and make this first. i don't see much green apples here in Japan, would it be okay to use a fuji apple or a normal red one instead?

PUL Team - April 7, 2021, 3:32 a.m.

Hello Reigna, thank you so much for sharing your lovely feedback! We're so happy to hear you're enjoying the PUL content 😀 Any apples should do 🙂

Mounika - March 29, 2021, 10:12 a.m.

Aww I just loved this desserts

Louise Magnusson🇸🇪 - March 24, 2021, 8:29 p.m.

Wonderful and rich dessert overnight oat! I really like the combination of raw and caramelised apple, which gives a good variety of textures. I was nevertheless surprised that the cinnamon didn’t come through as expected. I realised later that I had used Ceylon cinnamon, which is milder than the Indonesian one that is common in Sweden. Mistake 🙄

PUL Team - April 2, 2021, 5:52 p.m.

Oh no! We're glad you still enjoyed it, Louise, and thanks for sharing your review with us 🤗

Kawabi - March 24, 2021, 8:28 p.m.

I had this for breakfast this morning and it's so freaking delicious. It's like eating apple pie for breakfast but more substantial and nourishing. Definitely gonna try the other overnight oats recipes.

PUL Team - April 2, 2021, 6:32 a.m.

We're so appreciative of your kind words, Kawabi! We hope you enjoy the other overnight oats just as much 😀

Nadja Watney - March 24, 2021, 7:58 p.m.

Love the design of your website!

PUL Team - April 2, 2021, 4:36 a.m.

Thank you for your very kind words, Nadja!
