Apple Cinnamon Overnight Oats {gluten-free & vegan}

This post is part of my restricted diet series on the Free People Blog BLDG 25

Since my daily yoga practice is as important to me as the food I eat, I try to plan ahead with my meals, to make getting to the studio as easy as possible. Lately I have been enjoying daily 6am vinyasa flow classes, so that means getting to bed at a reasonable time and being up at 5am. I don’t eat before I practice yoga, but the minute I come home and walk through the front door I am starving – so I love easy, simple, quick, and healthy breakfast options.

Apple Cinnamon Overnight Oats {gluten-free & vegan}

These Apple Cinnamon Overnight Oats are so easy to throw together the night before and are ready the minute you are ready to eat them. I happened to have some beautiful local apples from our CSA box so I went with a fall-inspired Apple Cinnamon flavor, but you could certainly add whatever fruit or spices you’d like and make this your own.

What do you prefer to eat after a good, sweaty morning yoga practice or workout?

[print_this]Apple Cinnamon Overnight Oats {Gluten-free and Vegan}
makes 2 small servings

• 1 cup gluten-free rolled oats
• 1 cup non-dairy milk (I use homemade almond milk)
• 1 tablespoons chia seeds
• 1 small organic apple, cored and chopped small
• 1 tablespoon 100% pure maple syrup or honey
• 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
• dash of nutmeg
• pinch of fine sea salt
• 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Optional: For an extra protein boost add a scoop of your favorite vanilla protein powder, or chopped walnuts for added crunch!

Add all of the ingredients to a bowl or a jar. Stir well to combine. Cover and place in the fridge overnight. In the morning, give it a stir and enjoy it cold, or heat it up quickly if you prefer it warm. I like to add a little pinch of ground cinnamon or you can also add chopped nuts or granola, for a little crunch. This will keep in the fridge for 2-3 days.
