Apple Cranberry Overnight Oats

For this weeks overnight oat recipe I am sharing a twist on the typical apple cinnamon flavor by adding cranberries. It’s quite yummy with an additional hint of tartness.

Apple Cranberry Overnight Oats

1/2 cup old fashioned oats

1 TBSP. craisins

1 tsp. ground flax seed

4-5 slices of dehydrated apples

dash of cinnamon

1 TBSP maple syrup

3/4 cup vanilla almond milk(unsweetened)

To make dicing your apples easier, soak them in a bit of water for 2-3 minutes. Drain them off and dice them to your desired size. Add them to your jar. Add the maple syrup next.

In a separate bowl mix all your dry ingredients together and then add them to the jar also.

Pour in your almond milk, cover and shake well.

Refrigerate overnight.

In the morning heat them for 1-2 minutes and enjoy.

Cranberry Coconut Overnight Oats

For this weeks overnight oatmeal flavor we have a nice taste of the tropics.This creamy tropical tasting combination was a big hit with my daycare children and myself.

Cranberry Coconut Overnight Oats

1/2 cup old fashioned oats(not quick cooking)

1 TBSP shredded coconut(unsweetened)

1 TBSP craisins

dash of cinnamon

1 tsp. ground flax seed

3/4 cup almond/coconut original blended milk(Almond Breeze Brand)

For this one I did not add any additional sweetener because the milk blend is sweet already. I also think slivered almonds or walnuts sprinkled on top would be tasty on this conbination. I did not do this for us but feel free.(I have a nut allergy)

Mix your dry ingredients all together and put them into your jars. Add the milk blend, shake and refrigerate overnight. In the morning heat the mixture for 1-2 minutes and enjoy.
