Scrumptious apple pie oatmeal jars made with Autumn Glory apples. Perfect for a simple vegan breakfast or easy plant-based meal prep.
Friends, busy people, lovers of delicious food- I am so excited to share this Apple Pie Oatmeal recipe with you!
It’s made with Autumn Glory apples – aka the best apples in the world! Seriously, I used to think all apples were basically the same (except for Granny Smith obvs) but these apples are ahhh-mazing!
Autumn Glory apples are sweet and crisp, with notes of cinnamon and caramel. They taste like apple cider in fruit form and I am in love!
Obviously, they are incredible when cooked into apple pie topping for these oatmeal jars, but Autumn Glory apples are also perfect for snacking or on vegan cheese boards!
These apple pie oatmeal jars make such an easy and delicious breakfast! Simply slice the apples and cook them up with spices and coconut sugar, prepare the oatmeal, and blend the peanut butter caramel.
The recipe takes just 15 minutes to make and it is by far the tastiest breakfast I’ve had in ages!

- Apple Pie Layer
- 4 Autumn Glory apples
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- ½ tsp cornstarch
- ⅓ cup coconut sugar
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 2 cups plant-based milk
- pinch salt
- Peanut Butter Caramel
- 6 Medjool dates
- 3 tbsp peanut butter
- pinch salt
- ⅓ cup hot water
- Core and thinly slice the apples. Melt the coconut oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the apples, cinnamon, cornstarch, and sugar. Stir well. Cook for 5-7 minutes until apples are soft and gooey, stirring often.
- Put the oats, milk, and salt in a saucepan. Stir well. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce heat to low for 3-5 minutes.
- While the apples and oats are cooking, add the peanut butter, dates, water, and salt to a blender. Blend on high until smooth. Add more water if needed to reach your desired consistency.
- Press several apple slices onto the sides of the jar, then add oatmeal. Press the oatmeal in well, so it fills all the nooks and crannies. Add a layer of peanut butter caramel and more oatmeal. Top with apple pie topping. Enjoy right away or cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days. Tastes great warm or cold.
