Overnight Apple Pie Oatmeal (EatRight Ontario)

To take this breakfast on the run, pack it into portable containers or jars so kids can grab it and go.
Ingredients

3/4 cup (175 mL) plain 1% yogurt
1/4 cup (60 mL) milk
1 tsp (5 mL) pure maple syrup
1/2 tsp (2 mL) vanilla
1/4 tsp (1 mL) ground cinnamon
1 apple, cored and finely diced
1/2 cup (125 mL) large flake oats

Directions

  1. In a bowl, whisk together yogurt, milk, maple syrup, vanilla and cinnamon.
    2. Stir in apple and oats until well combined.
    3. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Tips

  1. Instead of dicing the apple you can grate the apple for less chunky oatmeal.
    2. For a sweeter tasting oatmeal, use empire, royal gala or red delicious apples.
    3. To add a nutty flavour to your oatmeal, simply toast the oats in a dry nonstick skillet over medium heat, stirring often
