Recipe: Healthy Apple Crumble Overnight Oats

Healthy Vegan Apple Crumble Overnight Oats Recipe - low fat, gluten free, low calorie, high protein, clean eating recipe, healthy breakfast, sugar free,

I love breakfast. 

It's my favourite meal of the day and I don't really understand people who say they don't like breakfast... in fact, I love breakfast so much that I'll happily eat "breakfasty" meals for lunch and dinner because multiple breakfasts a day never sounds like a bad idea. 

Lately as well as hot oatmeal bowls and my breakfast bakes, I've been loving overnight oats as a quick and easy option for mornings where I just need to grab something and get on with my morning. 

This "Apple Crumble" Overnight Oats Recipe is a current favourite. With delicious apple pieces and a crunchy granola "crumble" topping, it's all sorts of delicious - and so easy to create!

The base you use for these overnight oats can be tweaked to suit your own taste buds. I know some people loveeee milk based overnight oats - but I just can't get past the thick almost doughiness of overnight oats made with a yogurt base. 

The apple can also be tweaked according to your taste and time commitments. If you cook the apple (or used canned apple), you'll have more of an apple pie taste, however, you can also use crunchy pieces of diced apple if you don't want to take the time to cook and cool or don't have canned pie apple on hand. 

So, basically, this is a recipe that isn't much of a recipe - but more of an inspiration piece...

So let me inspire you to create your own delicious breakfast creation! >>

Apple Crumble Overnight Oats Recipe
gluten free*, vegan, clean eating friendly, high protein option, 
sugar free, egg free, dairy free option, nut free

To Make a Thick Yogurt Based Base: 
1/2 cup (45g) gluten free rolled oats*
~3/4 cup (170g or 6 oz) greek yogurt (I love Chobani 0% Plain)
Optional: Chia seeds, protein powderpeanut flour, nuts/seeds/fruit, honey/maple syrup/sweetener of choice (see notes)

To Make a Milk Based Base:
1/2 cup (45g) gluten free rolled oats*
1/3-1/2 cup milk of your choice (depending on how thick you want your oats)
Optional: 1-2 tbsp thick yogurt**
Optional: 1-2 tsp chia seeds or ground flaxseeds

To Make Your Apple Crumble Overnight Oats Bowl:
1 apple, diced or 1/3-1/2 cup canned pie apple
1/2 tsp cinnamon 
1/4-1/2 cup gluten free granola (I used this Homemade Honey Vanilla Granola Recipe but we also like this store bought one)
  • If you want to add cooked "stewed" apples: Cook your apple in a small saucepan with a few tablespoons of water and your cinnamon, cooking over a medium heat until your apples have softened and then allow your apple mixture to cool.
  • Combine your chosen overnight oats base with your apple and cinnamon and sweeten to taste if desired. If I cook the apple, I'll leave both the overnight oats and the apple in the fridge overnight and then mix the two in the morning, however, you can mix it all together the night before.
  • In the morning, add your granola and any additional toppings and enjoy!
  • If you want something extra special: Make the granola fresh so you have a warm "crumble" topping.
Notes:
  • *Find out more about Oats on a Gluten Free Diet here. If you can't tolerate oats, feel free to use quinoa flakes instead (however, the taste will be quite different and you may want to add some sweetener to avoid bitterness from the quin0a)
  • **You can use whatever yogurt you like - greek yogurt, sweetened yogurt, natural yogurt etc. I use Chobani 0% plain as it's packed with protein, has no added sugar and as it's not flavoured I can add whatever I fancy! Jesse prefers sweetened yogurt so when I make it for him I'll use half plain Chobani and half vanilla yogurt.
But tell me, what's your go to breakfast at the moment?
