Another addition to the overnight oats recipe collection! These apple overnight oats are comforting and a little spicy. An important note on oats: The oats you choose have an impact on your blood sugars. Unfortunately, the instant variety that you just add water to are more processed and contain less fibre, meaning they are digested quicker release sugar into the bloodstream quickly. Better choices are jumbo oats, steel-cut, stoneground oatmeal and rolled oats. The right oats keep you fuller longer, are packed with minerals and fibre.
