Apple Cinnamon Refrigerator Oatmeal
From the Honeymoon Kitchen, inspired by many, many blogs with similar recipes

Continuing with the utterly NON-Whole30 recipes, it’s grains and dairy time!  To be honest, I’m not a huge fan of oatmeal, especially not for breakfast.  Those instant oatmeal packs I grew up with leave me hungry before I even make it to work.  Even the real, steal-cut stuff just doesn’t satisfy, probably because it’s too low protein.  As a general rule, my go-to breakfast is scrambled eggs with veggies, which is guaranteed to hit the spot. Unfortunately it’s also guaranteed to take a little time to make and require a plate and fork to eat.  Nine times out of ten that’s just fine with me, but there’s no denying that some mornings are a little more hectic than others.  And everywhere I looked (on the internet, that is) I kept seeing this refrigerator overnight oatmeal concept.  So I plugged it into an online nutrition database, out of curiosity.  And believe it or not, it has 20 grams of protein!  Considering that an egg only has 6, that’s pretty darn impressive!  I’m not saying eggs are going to be dethroned any time soon around here, but I could see this edging it’s way in, especially on Tuesdays when I have to be at work at 6:30!


  • 1/2 cup (4oz) plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/3 cup rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup milk (I used whole milk)
  • 1/2 apple, chopped into small pieces
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp peanut or almond butter
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • granola or additional fruit for topping, optional


  1. Place yogurt, oats, milk, apple, syrup, nut butter and cinnamon in a container with a lid.  Shake until well combined.
  2. Refrigerate overnight.
  3. Toss in your purse and get to work!  (Or enjoy at home, topped with granola and more fruit!).

Serves 1.

  2. Pa vienam rakstam nebÅ«tu ne vainas, bet pa otram viss ir virspusÄ“ji aprakstÄ«ts – teksta daudz, bet konkrÄ“ti nekas pilnÄ«gi nav pateikts. Izlasot tādu gudrāka ne par matu nepaliksi!

    Karen, interesting and simple read. In my perspective most of us if not all of us do fall into this spiral at times…and I enjoyed the way you came up with such doable and simple strategies to alter one’s thinking So we did enjoy the Olympics – you in GB and me in India…

  8. I was thinking about making matcha cupcakes for the first time, and I found your blog! 🙂 I was just curious, how dense do these come out to be? I've been reading other blogs where they encountered problems with dryness.

  9. Have you given any kind of consideration at all with translating your blog into French? I know a few of translaters here that might help you do it for free if you want to get in touch with me personally.
