Recipe: Cinnamon Apple Pie Overnight Oats
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, especially for kids. It offers important nutrients and energy to kick-start the day. Even better, breakfast can help kids’ academic performance and overall well-being.
For many kids, lunch and dinner alone do not provide the needed amount of nutrients, vitamins and minerals that children need.
Mornings can be hectic, especially with younger children. Since overnight oats don’t involve any cooking, this recipe can add some time back to your morning if made the night before.
Check out this recipe for cinnamon apple pie overnight oats, which can be made using your favorite variety of Michigan-grown apples.
