Apple Cinnamon Overnight Oats

Overnight oats have been my go-to breakfast this summer.  It's been great to just go out in the yard and add blueberries or blackberries from our bushes into the jar each day.  But fall is on the way, and what a great way to transition into it than with these Apple Cinnamon Overnight Oats from Taste of Home?

I like to layer my jars, so I started with half of everything.  Oats first, salt, cinnamon next.  Then I topped that with 1/2 a teaspoon of chia seeds.  Next came the apple and raisins. Repeat once more.  Then I pour in the milk, which in my case  was almond milk.

While I was doing all this, I had some pecans toasting in a pan on the stove, the last little bit I had left from another recipe. Maybe 10 pecan halves.  Note to self: never turn your back while toasting nuts.  I went to give the pan a shake, and the bottoms were burnt.  Into the trash they went. You could also use shelled pumpkin or sunflower seeds if you want some crunch.

The next day, I enjoyed this out on the patio, feeling like I had the best of both worlds.  Sunny, 78 degrees, another whole week of summer vacation ahead of me, spooning up a delicious taste of fall. Thank you so much to Sarah F. for sharing her recipe, as well as some great tips on apples in the Sept./Oct issue!
