Cinnamon Apple Butter Overnight Oats

The Essence of Fall in a Bowl

Want to know what it tastes like to eat the entire essence of Fall in a bowl for breakfast? I GOT YOU! I promise, this bowl embodies alllll the best parts of fall. Between the cinnamon and nutmeg warming spices and the flavorful apples (if you don’t go apple picking, is it even Fall?), you will not only devour this bowl in seconds, but also feel like you’re ready to take on every changing leaf and pumpkin patch in your future. The apple butter may seem daunting at first, but it is quite possibly the easiest thing I’ve ever made in this kitchen! If you do not have an instant pot, you can do the same method on a crock pot but cook on low for ~3 hours, or on the stove top in a covered pot on simmer for ~20 minutes (you will just have to mash the apples more than the other two methods).
