This AMAZING Apple Pie Overnight Quinoa is packed with protein, fiber and healthy fats to keep you FULL and ENERGIZED all day long!

Being in between seasons can be confusing for your body. Do we eat a creamy, comforting bowl of oatmeal because it's September or do we stick with our cool and refreshing smoothie bowl? Decisions, decisions.

But with today's new overnight quinoa recipe, I don't think you'll have to choose. We've got all the bases covered with this one.

How to make the PERFECT Apple Pie Overnight Quinoa with just a few simple ingredients!

For starters, it's packed with protein, fiber and healthy fats. Everything you need to stay full and energized all day long.

Then, we've got heartiness from it being a grain-based breakfast, but still that refreshing summer vibe because it's served chilled.

And finally, the flavor. Apple pie is, of course, perfect for fall, but by adding the chunks of fresh (uncooked) apples on top, it makes the whole breakfast bright, juicy and again, refreshing!

How to make the PERFECT Apple Pie Overnight Quinoa with just a few simple ingredients!

Now I've shared a few overnight quinoa recipes before, but this Apple Pie Overnight Quinoa is definitely my favorite.

We start with a base of quinoa flakes, then add chia and hemp seeds for added protein, stir in a scoop of protein powder (which is optional, but definitely makes it sweeter), some cinnamon and nutmeg (<– duh) and top it off with some unsweetened almond milk.

It's one of those breakfasts that tastes fancy but literally takes no more than 5 minutes to make.

I like serving mine with the apples on top then a generous drizzle of peanut butter, but you could certainly stir both of those in if you need a total grab-and-go breakfast option.

Either way, it's going to delight your taste buds, remind you of all things fall, but still keep you in that fresh, feelin' of summer!

  1. Hello!-
    I’m new to your blog! i love the recipes that I’ve come across so far! Also started to follow you on IG. But I have one question, what are Quinoa Flakes? and where do you buy them? your link is only for regular quinoa…..

    • Quinoa flakes are essentially the rolled oats version of quinoa! You can buy them online or at most natural food stores, OR you can also substitute them with quick cooking oats 🙂

  2. Hi!
    Quick question ~ do you think oats would work in this? No quinoa flakes in the pantry tonight, but dying to have this in the morning 🤤
    P.S. Tried your Pad Thai Zucchini Noodle Salad tonight!!!!! Fan-stinkin’-tastic!!!!

  3. Hi Alyssa,
    I’d love to try this out, it looks delicious! I noticed that your recipe states to use quinoa flakes, but the link in the ingredients list is for quinoa, not quinoa flakes. I just wanted to confirm – should I use quinoa flakes, or quinoa for this recipe?

    Thanks for sharing!

  4. This looks like a really good recipe. I need more healthy foods like this that I can eat in the morning. I usually just eat a couple Kind bars for breakfast! Your website is very cool. It reminds me of minimalist baker. I found that on http://www.fizzle.co. Thanks for sharing this content.

  5. I have Never used the flakes are they different as with the Regular Quinoa as with it you have to Rinse in A few times so it’s not so bitter Do you need to Do that with the Flakes My Dr told to make my Mind up to loose my extra Pounds ASAP so back to what I know I NEED TO DO QUINOA THANK YOU
