I’ve been eating oatmeal every morning since I was a child. Sure, some days I’ll have something else––homefries, sweet potato pancakes, waffles, or breakfast enchiladas (yum!)––but most days call for good old fashioned oats. And I know I’m not alone in this breakfast habit.

Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Mix

In the summer months I like having the option of eating my oats hot or cold, savory or sweet, because oats can provide goodness any time of day! Whoever created the concept of overnight oats was a genius! But you can make overnight oats even easier by using a premade oatmeal blend like this apple cinnamon mix I created. Put it in the jar with your plant milk of choice, give it a stir, and enjoy your oatmeal in the morning. If you’d rather have it hot, simply cook this instant oatmeal in the microwave for 2 minutes, or stovetop for 8, and you’ve got a perfectly spiced oat blend. This recipe makes 16 servings. That’s 16 days of breakfast taking less than 5 minutes to prepare 🙂

I always add cinnamon, ground flax, and some softened dried fruit. It would be so much easier to make a large batch of the dried oatmeal blend so that I can scoop it out each morning for breakfast. Every second counts, and this saves me plenty of time. I warm it in the microwave, stir in oat milk or nut milk, and serve it along with fresh fruit.

The only thing better is that it takes only a few minutes to make this apple cinnamon blend! As a kid the apples & cinnamon flavored instant oatmeal packets from Quaker Oats were my favorite flavor. I also really loved peaches & cream flavor too. If you don’t have dried apples, feel free to swap them out with other dried fruit like peaches or strawberries. Since this recipe calls for dried fruit, you don’t have to worry about finding fresh fruit in season.

  1. This sounds awesome! I’ve been really enjoying oatmeal for breakfast lately but switched from the flavored kind to organic and it needs some dressing up! My family and I went Vegan almost 2 weeks ago and your YouTube and Blog has been all that we’ve been eating! Your recipes are amazing! They’ve made the transition easy! I would have never believed it was so easy and delicious to leave animal products behind! Thanks so much for all the work you put into your videos and blog!

  2. what would you think about adding freeze dried fruit to this? (instead of “regularly” dried)?
