This apricot overnight oatmeal is a sweet and delicious start to your morning!

I don’t know about you, but I love a good apricot muffin. I don’t often find them, but when I do, I’ll sometimes splurge and enjoy a small one. I haven’t yet done a recipe for them here, but you can bet it’ll be coming at some point. But until that happens, here’s a simple recipe for overnight oats that will get you pretty close!

WHAT ARE OVERNIGHT OATS?

If you’ve never heard of overnight oats, they are a marvelously simple way to have breakfast ready and waiting for you first thing in the morning. In fact, I’m doing a series of 5 of them that you can prep all at once! You can find those here. But the basic idea is that you put the dry oats and other ingredients into a jar, mug or container with some milk of your choosing, and let it sit overnight. The oats soak up the liquid overnight without having to cook them. They are quite good, and breakfast is ready for you when you wake up in the morning. Not a bad deal!

    I’ve made apricot muffins before ( I love them as well) but I’ve never seen them available for purchase! I think I would splurge and try one out as well if I saw it!

    Can you use steel cut oats for this recipe instead?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Jennifer – You can try it, but I don’t think the steel cut oats will absorb the milk the way the traditional oats will. They would probably stay pretty hard.
