Cinnamon Apple Overnight Oats

After getting overexcited at an apple orchard a few weeks ago Ian and I came home with more apples than we knew what to do with! I made a few few batches of apple sauce, but our kitchen was still overflowing with produce. Cue recipe testing! There’s no better time to get creative in the kitchen than when you are drowning in apples! Right?!

I played around with apple crisp, muffins and overnight oatmeal. My favorite?! Well, I think the title of this post gives it away! The apple cinnamon overnight oatmeal blew me away. I kept checking my recipe notes to make sure this was actually a recipe suitable for breakfast rather than dessert! The blend of the tarte apples, cinnamon and maple syrup creates an indulgent breakfast that is ready to eat on busy mornings.

On a sunny day you will find me in the fields. ✨ Growing up on a dairy farm in the countryside I spent a lot of time outside. After school my siblings and I would feed calves, head inside for dinner and a few hours of homework, then trek back down to the barn help with milking shifts. It didn’t matter if it was blazing hot in the middle of summer or frigid cold in the depth of winter, we were outside. ✨ Now that I’ve moved off the farm, life looks a lot different. Being a graphic designer requires sitting in front of a computer for hours on end, but my soul aches to be outside. Luckily, I’m able to schedule breaks throughout the day to step away from my computer screen and enjoy nature. This allows me to get some fresh air, reconnect with my creativity, and return to my work with fresh eyes. ✨ What do you do during the day to hit the refresh button?
Woke up with a pep in my step! I couldn’t believe it was already Thursday…until Ian kindly reminded me it is actually Wednesday. In an instant, I went from being gleeful to feeling like the cruel universe added a day to my week. To keep my spirits high, I chose to treat myself to a mid-day coffee break at @anodynecoffee. Double tap if coffee is the magical elixir that can turn your day around ☕️🙌💕
Easing into the work week after an incredible Packer win last night! My day is full of chai tea, calming Spotify playlists, and an afternoon walk to recenter and get my mind ready for a busy week.
Cozying up with the fall @magnolia journal issue while I wait for the rain showers to pass. 🌦
