These apple cinnamon overnight oats are the perfect breakfast for that crazy morning on the go or the quick and easy afternoon snack! Are you on the go this March Break? Or maybe you are just on the go always, like my family. My girls love overnight oats and they love helping to make them. There is no baking involved, just measuring, adding ingredients, some stiring and a little pouring, this sounds like the perfect mixture of tasks for kids in the kitchen. What I also love about this recipe, is that the measurements are for individual portions, so if each child wanted to personalize their own ingredients they can. I like to make overnight oats in mason jars then my girls can grab the glass markers and write their names and draw pictures. It adds a little fun and makes morning time more exciting. My favourite ingredient in these overnight oats is the cinnamon, not only does it make the base of flavour but cinnamon also helps to balance out blood sugars. Cinnamon is said to actually slow the rate at which the stomach empties which can help the bodies ability to respond to insulin, which essentially slows the rise of blood sugar levels.  I say YES to this! Those blood sugar spikes in kids can lead to tantrums and not so fun vacation time!

- 3/4 Cup Oats
- 1 Tsp Hemp Seeds
- 2 Tbsp Chopped apples (small bite size)
- 1 Tsp Cinnamon
- 1 Tbsp Coconut Oil (melted)
- 1 Tbsp Maple Syrup
- 1/2 Cup Nut milk
Chop an apple, preferrably red with skin on, into small bite size pieces.
I tend to do the mixing in a larger bowl, so you can stir everything thoroughly before placing in mason jar overnight.
In a bowl, mix together oats, hemp, cinnamon, coconut oil, maple syrup and apples. Make sure to combine throughly!
Place mixture and pack firmly in a wide mouth 16 oz mason jar. Then pour 1/2 cup of nut milk overtop. Seal with lid and place in fridge.
These can sit in the fridge for a few days and be eaten whenever. If you are looking for a quick snack, the oats will be best if they are in the fridge for atleast 2 hrs but overnight is the best!
