Is anyone else completely obsessed with apple butter? Is it just a southern thing? If you’ve never had it please try it. It’s a smooth, caramelized and concentrated slow cooked version of applesauce. With all of the warm spices and apples it has such a lovely fall flavor. I absolutely love this stuff. It is great on biscuits (a staple of the south) and toast or just eaten with a spoon… 🙂

But I decided recently, why not add it to oats? WHY had I not tried this sooner? It added a sweet tang and fall flavor. I made them both as on the stove and meal prepped as overnight oats.

*Don’t worry; apple butter does not contain any butter. Most are vegan, its like a jam or preserves.*

 

Please let me know if you try this out!

¾ cup Old Fashioned Oats

1 cup plant milk stove top (I used ½ cup almond coconut milk and ½ cup water)

¾-1 cup for overnight oats

1 tsp vanilla

½ tbsp. cinnamon

Sweetener of your choice to taste (I’ve used both brown sugar and stevia before, try maple syrup!)

Pinch of salt

1 tbsp nut butter of choice (Optional but for protein and it is such a lovely nod to peanut butter and jelly)

1 tbsp apple butter

 

Stove top

  1. Bring your plant milk with a pinch of salt to a simmer on the stovetop in a small saucepan or pot.
  2. Add in the oats, sweetener, vanilla and cinnamon. Stir and cook until desired texture.
  3. Pour your oats into a bowl and top with apple butter and nut butter.

If you want to add some extra texture try some nuts or granola!

 

Overnight Oats

  1. Combine everything in your desired container.
  2. Let set overnight in the refrigerator.
  3. Serve cold or warm, for added texture try nuts or granola! Enjoy!
