When you go apple picking, you make apple pie. That's just how it works. But at over 400 calories per slice — and that's not including the à la mode — you can only eat so much without your trousers telling you you've had one slice too many. Here's a healthier way to get your apple pie fix. At 325 calories, it's a perfectly sweet way to start your day, for under 13 grams of sugar.
Offering almost 12 grams of protein and over nine grams of fibre, this overnight oats recipe takes five minutes to throw together before bed. Then when your alarm goes off, this jar of apple pie goodness will pull you softly out of sweet slumber, perk up your taste buds, and get you off to a happy start. These oats can be enjoyed cold, or for more of an apple pie feel, pop your jar in the microwave.
Use gluten-free oats if you have dietary restrictions.
