This recipe easy and thrifty. There’s room for personalizing it because you can use homemade applesauce, like I did.If you’re thinking that applesauce is too much work to make from scratch, guess what? I made mine in less than 10 minutes using the microwave. And yeah, it’s just as good if not better than any applesauce I’ve ever had. If, however, you opt for a plain store-bought applesauce, make sure you add some cinnamon (or apple pie spices) to give it some more life.
How To Make Applesauce Overnight Oatmeal
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup milk of choice (soy, almond, cow, etc.)
1/2 cup applesauce
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon or apple pie spice (optional, depending on applesauce)
Pinch of salt
Combine all ingredients in a sealable container (like a mason jar).
Stir the mixture, OR seal it tightly and shake vigorously until everything is thoroughly combined.
Place in the fridge overnight (or several hours). In the morning, eat cold or warm up for 1-2 minutes in the microwave.
