For the Oats:
2 cups old fashioned oats
2 and 2/3 cup milk
2 scoops protein powder (I used vanilla)
8 Tbsp Maple Syrup (I use a 15 calorie one) or sweetener of choice
For the apple topping:
2 large apples or 3-4 smaller ones
1 Tsp Coconut Sugar
2 Tsp Brown Sugar
1 Tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice or Cinnamon
1 Tbsp Butter
2 Tbsp Water
Heat a skillet to medium heat while dicing your apples
Add 1 tbsp butter to the pan and let it melt
Add apples into the skillet and add the coconut sugar, brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon and 2 Tbsp water.
Mix apples until completely coated in the seasoning
Once the apples start to bubble turn the heat to low and cook down for about 10 minutes stirring occasionally, until they're tender and carmelized
While the apples are cooking, add the oats, milk, protein powder and sweetener to your jars and mix well with a spoon.
When apples have cooled, add them to the top of the oats and keep in air tight containers like a mason jar in the fridge for up to 5 days. Eat cold or heated for 1 minute in the microwave.
*Tip: the oats measurements for each container are as follows:
1/2 cup oats
2/3 cup milk
1/2 scoop protein powder
2 Tbsp Maple Syrup
Yields 4 servings at 354 calories and 15g protein per serving.
