These Apple Pie Overnight Oats are filled with layers of cinnamon oats and a sweet apple filling for the best breakfast recipe! Plus, these overnight oats are vegan, gluten-free, & refined sugar-free for a healthier sweet breakfast.
Believe it or not, I made overnight oats for the first time just two months ago when I made my Pumpkin Overnight Oats. Since then, I've had so much fun making variations including Lemon Curd Overnight Oats and Banana Bread Overnight Oats.
These apple pie oats are the newest flavor to join the bunch and just may be my favorite flavor yet. Let's be honest...there is just something so satisfying about prepping breakfast the night before and waking up to a delicious jar of oats the next day!
- Maple Syrup: Can be replaced 1:1 with agave or honey.
- Vegan Butter: Can be omitted if you want to keep this recipe oil-free or substituted with coconut oil.
- Soy milk: Can be substituted 1:1 for any dairy-free milk.
- Cornstarch: Can be substituted 1:1 for arrowroot powder or tapioca powder, though it does slightly change the texture.
How to make apple overnight oats
Cook the apples
Peel and dice your honeycrisp apple. Then add it to a saucepan with the vegan butter, maple syrup, and cinnamon. Cook together for about 5 minutes and, once the apples are beginning to soften, add in the cornstarch slurry.
Cook the apples until they are thick and glossy and set aside for later!
Make the cinnamon oat batter
Once the apples are cooked, it's time to make the cinnamon apple overnight oats. Add the rolled oats, chia seeds, cinnamon, and salt to a bowl and whisk together.
Then, add in the soy milk, applesauce, maple syrup, and vanilla. Mix everything together until well combined.
Layer together & store in the fridge
Layer the overnight vegan overnight oat batter and cooked apples in two jars. Then, add lids and store in the fridge overnight.
P.S- if you prefer your apples warm, you can totally make them the morning of and store the oats without them!
The next morning, remove the oats from the fridge and add toppings. I like to add fresh apple slices and a little extra cinnamon on top. However, you can also add yogurt, homemade apple butter, or almond butter for a heartier topping.
Then, serve this apple pie oatmeal and enjoy!
How to store overnight oats
These apple cinnamon oats really taste best the next morning. However, they are a great way to prep breakfast for the entire week and can be stored in the fridge for 3-4 days.
You can even heat them up if you prefer them warmed in the morning!
I can't wait for you to try these absolutely delicious Apple Pie Overnight Oats. They are truly the perfect sweet breakfast for Fall!

Apple Pie Overnight Oats
Make the Stewed Apples
- Peel the apple and finely dice it. Then, add it the diced apple to a saucepan with the maple syrup, vegan butter, and cinnamon. Stir together and cook over medium heat for 3-5 minutes until the apples begin to soften.
- In a separate bowl whisk together the water and cornstarch to create the cornstarch slurry. Then, pour the slurry into the saucepan and mix with the apples. Continue cooking until the apples become thick and glossy.
- Remove the pan from the heat and set aside.
Make the cinnamon oats
- In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the rolled oats, chia seeds, cinnamon, and salt. Then, add in the soy milk, applesauce, maple syrup, and vanilla bean paste. Whisk together until a thick batter forms.
- Layer the cinnamon oats and stewed apples in two jars. Then, cover with a lid and store in the fridge for at least 4 hours or ideally overnight.
- Once chilled, remove the oats from the fridge and serve with your desired toppings. Enjoy!
- Overnight Oats are best enjoyed the day after they are made. However, they are also a great way to meal prep for the week and can be stored in a closed container in the fridge for 3-4 days.
- I topped it with overnight oats with sliced fresh apples, however, plant-based yogurt and almond butter are two other great toppings!
- Please see the blog post for more substitution ideas.
- *I recommend making the stewed apples ahead of time. However, if you prefer warm apples, you can also make them the following day and serve them over overnight oats.
