I’ve been dying to try an overnight oats recipe with almond milk.
I have an allergy to dairy and I love pretty much anything with almond milk, but can you believe I haven’t tried overnight oats yet?
I have having a super hard time getting out of the door in a reasonable amount of time in the morning, as I mentioned in my post last week.
So I needed breakfast options that I could grab and eat at my desk after my workout. I LOVE oatmeal, but I don’t like the instant oatmeal packets. They are filled with sugar, artificial flavors and the oats are overly processed. Not to mention, I barely have time to get to my desk for my first call of the day, much less have time to get to the microwave.
I decided to use my cute little mason jars to make myself overnight oats. These are so easy to make, I hesitate to even call this a recipe.
Apple Cinnamon Oats Recipe
1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1 tsp cinnamon
Add to jar. Shake. Put in fridge. That's IT!
This is so, super yummy.

There are so many options and varieties. I love PB Fit powder, and it works really well with oats and bananas. Do you like overnight oats? Have you ever tried them?
These last in the refrigerator for five days, so you can make a batch of them for the week and bring them in. You can use glass mason jars, like I did, or you can use these plastic freezer safe ones that transport a bit easier.
My “recipe” is pretty simple and I just used ingredients I had around the house, but you can check out this awesome Mason Jar Cookbook with loads of ideas for lunches, breakfast, salads and gifts.
I just love the way Mason Jars look and they are a cool way to transport your lunch to work/school and keep everything contained in one place. They are also built to preserve, so you have less risk of wilted lettuce and rancid oats.
Do you use Mason Jars for salads or meals? I’d love to hear your ideas on how to use these containers!
