  1. Cut just over half of the apple into bite-sized cubes, and add them to a medium pan.
  2. Mince or grate the other half of the apple and add to a mason jar or airtight container.
  3. 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.
  4. Remove the pot from the heat, and let the apple chunks cool off.
  5. Add all of the other ingredients to the jar, and mix to combine.
  6.  Add the cooked apple chunks to the top.
  7. Cover and let it sit overnight in the fridge.
  8. The next morning, top with yogurt and enjoy!

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!

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 🤩

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 🥰

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!

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

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 ✨🌻

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!
