(High-Protein) Cinnamon Apple Pie Overnight Oatmeal

I LOVE oatmeal.  And I LOVE apple pie.  And I LOVE the smell of cinnamon-baked ANYTHING (Cinnabon is a problem for me).  So, what could be better for breakfast than Cinnamon Apple Pie Overnight Oatmeal?  Well, in my world, making it high-protein, of course!

My mother always told me that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  And I believed her (and still do! – technically, it’s actually impossible to truly skip breakfast because your first meal of the day is when you are “breaking your fast,” hence, breakfast!  Okay, nerd moment over.  For now).  But then there’s also the adage, “Life is short. Eat dessert first.”  I say, why not do both?

Let’s get you as excited about breakfast as I am!

Apple & cinnamon are, in both the breakfast AND dessert realms, a pairing on par with PB&J (or PB&chocolate, or peanut butter and anything, really) – a Fred & Ginger of the food world, if you will.

A perfect pairing

A perfect pairing

They’re just meant to be together.  I’ve actually got a jar (two actually) of this in my refrigerator right now, so the sooner I share the recipe with you and go to bed, the sooner it will be morning and time to eat!

INGREDIENTS
1 medium apple, washed (150g)
1 cup (80g) rolled oats – make sure these are gluten-free, if you require
1 scoop (28g) protein powder of choice – I used Quest Nutrition Vanilla Milkshake Protein Powder*
1 tsp (5g) cinnamon
1/2 tsp (2g) nutmeg
1 cup (250mL or 240g) unsweetened almond milk
1/2 cup (113g) plain non-fat Greek yogurt

INSTRUCTIONS
1. Chop the apple, reserving a few slices for garnish and putting the rest in a medium mixing bowl.
2. Add the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly to coat the apple pieces.
3. Add the wet ingredients and mix thoroughly.
4. Divide the mixture into two wide-mouth Mason jars or containers, garnish with reserved apple slices, and refrigerate overnight.  Note the recipe easily halves for single servings or multiplies for more.
