Apple, cranberries, and seasonal spices come together to make this delicious Fall Harvest Overnight Oats. It’s the perfect recipe for busy fall mornings.
With the change of seasons, comes the chance for new breakfast dishes. Earlier this year I shared my recipe for Overnight Oats. Now that fall’s here, I’ve revisited my classic overnight oats recipe to take advantage of the flavors of autumn. Let’s dig into a bowl of Fall Harvest Overnight Oats.
I’ve been a fan of overnight oats for years. However, when I was introduced to them back in 2005, we called them muesli. Eleven years later, overnight night oats have become a breakfast staple for many.
In the fall, as temperatures start to cool, I often want something warm in the morning for breakfast. But I do have days when I crave my go-to overnight oats. That’s why I got the idea to incorporate some of my favorite hearty flavors: maple syrup, cranberries, apples, walnuts, and a dash of cinnamon to bring it all together.
How to Make:
It’s really quite perfect. I don’t think I’ll ever tire of this dish.
The best part about overnight oats is that you can use the ingredients and flavors you love. Don’t like walnuts? Try almonds. Not a fan of apple? How about pears? Mix it up until you find a combination worth waking up to.
Everything gets mixed up in a sealable container before you head off to bed. In the morning, it’s ready to serve straight from the refrigerator.
To make mine look a bit prettier (You know me.), I added extra apple slices, Greek yogurt, cranberries, and cinnamon. However, if you’re not looking to impress anyone or are tight on time, this step isn’t necessary. Just dive right in.
Looks pretty good, right? If you haven’t eaten overnight oats, I hope I’ve tempted you. Let us know if you give these Fall Harvest Overnight Oats a try.

when/where do you add the walnuts? In the oats mixture or as a topping? Sounds yummy!
I just added them as a topping, but either would work.
You always make every dish look so pretty…and delicious! Thanks.

Michael I’d love your recipe for steel cut oats….. you must have an awesome version that you’re keeping secret! Do share pretty please!
I’m not sure what you mean? You can certainly use steal cut oats if you’d like.
Please forgive my ignorance, do you heat it up before you indulge?
Great question. No, this oatmeal is designed to be served cold. 🙂
