Apple crumble overnight oats


  • 80g oats (preferably porridge oats rather than rolled) – use gluten-free oats if required
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds, optional
  • 20g sultanas
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • a pinch of ground cloves or mixed spice
  • 200ml milk
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup or other sweetener
  • 1 dessert apple, grated coarsely
  • 10g flaked almonds
  • 25g oats – use gluten-free oats if required
  • ½ tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tsp pumpkin seeds
  • 2 tbsp apple sauce from a jar
  • 2 tbsp Greek-style yogurt
  • ½ dessert apple, thinly sliced


Step by step


The overnight oats keep for 2-3 days; add toppings when ready to eat. The crisp oat crumble keeps for several weeks in an airtight container, if you want to make a larger batch.

  1. Oats, chia seeds (if used), sultanas, and spices should all be combined in a bowl. Mix well after adding the milk, syrup, and apple shredded. Overnight in the refrigerator, covered.
  2. Combine the ingredients for the crisp oat crumble, then lay them out on a baking sheet. Grill for approximately 2 minutes, turning once or twice, until brown and crisp.
  3. Divide the overnight oats into serving bowls or pots, top with a teaspoon of yogurt and apple sauce, apple slices, and crisp oat crumble, and serve (or granola).

Because oat flour is used in place of all-purpose flour, the crumble topping is gluten-free. You won’t be able to tell the difference because the texture and flavor are so close.

This make-ahead dish resembles dessert thanks to the toasted flavor of the crumble topping, fresh apple, and flavorful spices. Take this meal prep with you and eat it whenever you want for breakfast or a quick snack.


Overnight Oats

  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • ½ cup unsweetened soy milk
  • ¼ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • ½ cup chopped apple (1 small apple)
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch salt
  • ¼ cup oatmeal crumble topping

Oatmeal Crumble Topping

  • ¼ cup rolled oats
  • 3 tablespoons oat flour
  • ⅛ cup light brown sugar
  • ⅛ teaspoon apple pie spice
  • Pinch of salt
  • ⅛ cup chopped walnuts nuts
  • ⅛ cup unsalted butter


  1. Apple should be peeled and diced. Place in an overnight oats container or a medium bowl.
  2. Mix thoroughly before adding the additional ingredients for the overnight oats.
  3. Before consumption, place covered in the refrigerator for 12 to 24 hours.
  4. Combine the oats, oat flour, sugar, apple pie spice, and salt for the oatmeal crumble topping. With your fingertips, incorporate the butter into the dry ingredients until it resembles pea-sized crumbs. Add the chopped walnuts after that.
  5. On a baking sheet, evenly distribute the crumble and bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees.
  6. Place the crumble in an airtight container after it has cooled.
  7. When ready to serve, top with the desired amount of crumbled oatmeal for a crunchy texture. Enjoy!


  • Take additional care to take the pan out of the oven before any burning happens because the crumble browns quickly. A little toasted hue and flavor are desired.
  • When creating the crumble topping, swap out the butter for coconut oil to make this dish vegan. It will still produce a crust that is perfectly browned and crunchy.
  • Although certain apples yield more liquid than others, the liquid’s consistency can be easily changed in either case. Once you see how much liquid was released from the apples in the morning, you can simply adjust the overnight oats ratio.
  • This overnight oats recipe should be eaten within 4-5 days of preparation in order to maintain freshness and prevent ingredients from spoiling. Enjoy

Apple Oats Crumble and Apple Chips

I adore the simplicity of this Apple Oats Crumble with Apple Chips because it’s healthy and not excessively sweet. You may serve it for breakfast with yogurt on top. You could even make it into a dessert by adding some whipped heavy cream and salted caramel.

Apple Chips with Apple Oats Crumble

For a very long time, the apple crumble recipe had been resting in my manuscripts. Up until this morning, I had completely forgotten about it.

This describes how chaotic and hectic life has been over the past few months.

Anyway, as a little tribute to fall flavors with apple before I really enter spring mood.

Ingredients for the Apple Crumble 

Apples – I used red, you can choose green too!
Brown sugar – You can use white sugar too, however brown sugar gives that rich taste and the color.
Cinnamon powder – for the warm autumn flavor
Old-fashioned oats – Make it healthy!
Almond flour – Also carb free!
Butter – butter makes everythig better.
Salt – a must!

Preparing the crumble is super easy and all it needs it mixing the crumble and then layered it on sliced apple.

Put it in the oven and let it bake.

CrunchyApple Chips

Have you ever attempted to make apple chips? These are the most ideal snack nibbles, and I’ll be making a ton more veggie chips shortly. It’s not absolutely necessary for the crumble, but it was a great touch on top.

Slice your apples extremely thinly and bake them slowly in the oven for a couple of hours for the best apple chips. On top, I also added a little cinnamon powder.

Apple Oats Crumble could be your Breakfast or Dessert! 

  • You must select firm apples so that they don’t mush up in the hot oven when baking. You want to cook it until it is soft but with some texture still there.
  • In my opinion, peeling an apple makes it too soft. I therefore like leaving the peel on. Hence, why not? Less labor!
  • While cold butter will produce a crumbly texture when it bakes in the oven, melting butter can also be used in the oats and flour mixture.
  • I used almond flour, which had a richer taste, in instead of all-purpose flour. A few pecans on top for a nuttier taste in between is also recommended.

Apple Pie Overnight Oats

Eat dessert for breakfast with these healthy apple pie overnight oats. You’ll love the cozy cinnamon apple flavor and that they can be made ahead of time.

Prep Time10 minutes

Total Time10 minutes



Cinnamon Apples

  • 1/2 cup chopped apple, about 1/2 a large apple
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • pinch of cinnamon

Overnight Oats

  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 -3/4 cup unsweetened vanilla dairy-free milk, almond, cashew, coconut, etc.
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt or coconut yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup, honey or your favorite sweetener
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, or apple pie spice
  • toppings: cinnamon apples, nut butter, chopped nuts, chia or hemp seeds


  • Chopped apple pieces, maple syrup, and cinnamon are combined in a small microwave-safe bowl to prepare cinnamon apples. Coat apples with the mixture. Heat for 30 to 60 seconds, or until apples are slightly softened and resemble cooked apples. Reserve 1/4 cup of the apples to be used as a topping after letting cool.
  • Blend the remaining components.
  • Oats, milk, yogurt, maple syrup, vanilla, and cinnamon should be combined in a container with a lid, such as a mason jar.
  • Add 1/4 cup of the cinnamon apples to the oat mixture and toss in the apples. Put the lid on the jar and shake it a little more to blend.
  • Place in the refrigerator overnight (or only for 30 to 60 minutes if you’re making them the day before).
  • To serve, take off the jar’s lid and, if the mixture seems too thick, add extra yogurt or almond milk. Add an additional 1/4 cup of apples and your preferred overnight oat toppings on top. I enjoy including some chopped nuts or nut butter.


  • Milk: I like using unsweetened vanilla almond milk, but any type of milk will work.
  • Yogurt: You can use regular or non-dairy yogurt. I like using plain, but I recently tried using Siggi’s vanilla & cinnamon yogurt in this recipe and it was amazing. Highly recommend!
  • Maple syrup: Honey or another natural liquid sweetener will work as well. If you want to reduce the sugar in this recipe, feel free to use a sugar alternative like stevia or monk fruit
