I came across this recipe on pinterest while looking for an overnight oatmeal for my daughter and it didn’t take long to figure out this one was a keeper, so I tweaked it to my liking and here it is, my first legit oatmeal recipe for this blog!
If you like apples, and/or cinnamon check out a couple of others on my blog. Cinnamon Apple Cheesecakes (E) are a big from last fall, and No Knead Oatmeal Batter Bread (E) is one of my childhood favorites, now THM’d.

Cinnamon Apple Overnight Oats
- 1/2 cup whole grain oats
- 1/3 cup plain 0% plain Greek yogurt
- 3 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk (blue diamond is my favorite)* or half and half (see note)
- 1/3 cup unsweetened apple sauce*
- 2 tsp pyure or truvia or 4 tsp gentle sweet*
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon*
- Add all ingredients to a 2 cup (1 pint) container with a lid.
- Stir until combined.
- Refrigerate overnight, or for at least 4 hours.
- Serve cold.
*Since starting Trim Healthy Mama I've become a fan of the little applesauce cups that contain individual 1/3 cup servings which is perfect for so many recipes. I keep mine in the back of my fridge so I can always find it when I need it but it can be stored right in your pantry and since it's so much less perishable than the kind in the jar you always have it handy for E meals needed.
*If you'd like to make your own cinnamon/sweetener and use it in place of all the sweetener and cinnamon in this recipe it will make it a little more cinnamon flavored, but that's a good thing and it will change this recipe to a 5 ingredients or less dish, which is even better. This is my go-to sweetener, especially in the winter months and is so handy to have on hand to sprinkle over fruit or toast or another over yummy creation your may concoct.
*If eating this as a meal by itself you can sub 2 tablespoons of the almond milk for half and half for a fat source.
If you need anything from the Trim Healthy Mama Store it would be a help to me if you could use my link and at no extra cost to you. Thanks for helping me keep producing and offering these free recipes. 🙂
