I know I just recently posted a “Fall Harvest” recipe, but I’m obsessed with these flavors! Apples, carrots, raisins, cinnamon … they’re a winning combo.

The recipe I posted last week were these cookies which I’m pretty sure are gone. Apparently I can’t have cookies in the house! (ha!) Luckily, this overnight oatmeal recipe will give me my seasonal fix early in the day and keep me full until lunch.

The first morning, I enjoyed them cold (as overnight oats are meant to be ate) with a drizzle of almond butter. The next day, I warmed them up and poured some maple syrup on top. WOW. Warm oats > cold oats for sure. It was VERY reminiscent of maple and brown sugar oatmeal. You know, the kind that comes in the brown packet. (Which was always a fave growing up.) However, this recipe has no added sugar but just the right amount of sweetness.

As always, if more sweetness is desired, I recommend a drizzle of maple syrup or honey on top right before serving. Sooooooo good.
