For the oats:

  • 1/3 cup rolled oats
  • ½ cup milk of your choice I use half almond and half regular milk
  • ¼ cup of plain unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon of chia seeds
  • 1/2 tablespoon of ground flax seeds
  • 1/2 tablespoon of hemp hearts
  • 1 tsp. maple syrup if you’re not fond of maple syrup, try honey instead
  • ¼ tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. of cinnamon
  • A pinch of nutmeg
  • A pinch of allspice

For the streusel topping:

  • 1 tsp. butter you could use coconut oil instead
  • 1 tablespoon rolled oats
  • 1 tsp. brown sugar
  • Pinch of cinnamon


For the oats:

  1. Simply mix all of the ingredients together. You don’t have to make this in a mason jar, but it does make it quite easy and convenient, especially if making several days worth at a time. They store well in the refrigerator. If I’m just making one, I might use a bowl with a cover instead.

For the streusel:

  1. Melt the butter in a pan. Add the remaining ingredients and toast lightly. Store in a separate container from the oats mixture.
  2. In the morning, I simply top the oats with the streusel and other toppings as desired.

Recipe Notes

Toppings I used: Chopped walnuts or pecans, chopped fresh or dried apples

Variations: Use yogurt in place of some or all of the milk. Personally, I find that if I use all yogurt, I will need a touch of liquid added just before serving to the get texture I like. I am also not as fond of heating the overnight oats mixture if it has yogurt in it. For a truly decadent variation, use heavy cream.

You can substitute other fruits such as cherries, peaches, or pears for the apples. Using dried fruits means that you have no further prep in the morning. If using fresh, it will require some chopping just before serving.

Try variations of other nuts with your overnight oats. Almonds are another fantastic option but you can head outside the box with some cashews or macadamia nuts too. I often like to throw some raisins and/or dried cranberries into this recipe as well. YUM!
