Apple Cinnamon Overnight Oats

Apple Cinnamon Overnight Oats

Wow! I am overjoyed with the bumper crop of apples I have had this year! It has been simply amazing how many large bowls of apples have come off of my small dwarf apple tree this year. I am still making applesauce and apple slices for pies to freeze but I had to find other ways to use these beautiful apples as well. 

I love oats! I have to admit that I ate a lot of oatmeal growing up and after I grew up I decided that I would take a break from oats for a while, but now I am back. I have discovered how wonderfully versatile and healthy oats are and I just love all of the different ingredients you can add to oats to make your breakfast a star! 

I know that you will just adore these oats! Let me know how you like your oats in the comments below! :)
