Apple Pie Chia Jam & Breakfast Parfait

Prep Time: 15 min. Cook Time: 20 min. Chill Time: Overnight. Difficulty: Easy
Photos from / Recipe adapted from Oh She Glows
Makes 2 parfaits


For the apple pie jam:
3 large apples, peeled and diced
3/4 cup 100% pure apple juice
2 tablespoons chia seeds
3/4-1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract (optional)
pinch of fine grain sea salt (optional)
For the parfait:
1/2 cup gluten-free rolled oats
1 + 1/4 cups homemade or store-bought almond milk
2 tablespoons chia seeds
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
sweetener, to taste (optional)
Apple Pie Jam (from above)
Chopped toasted walnuts (optional)

How to Make It (so easy!)

1. For the Jam: Combine all jam ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Cover and simmer 15-20 mins. over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally. When apples are tender, remove from heat. Mash half the mixture and stir together, creating a thicker texture. Let cool.
2. For the overnight oats: Combine oats, chia seeds, almond milk, vanilla, and cinnamon in a small bowl and whisk to combine. Place in the fridge overnight (or for 1-2 hours minimum) to thicken. It's ready when oats are softened and liquid mostly absorbed.
3. To make parfaits: Layer the vegan overnight oats with the apple pie jam, a few spoonfuls of each per layer. Add toasted chopped walnuts on top of each layer if you like! Store leftover jam in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.

Enjoy this delicious vegan breakfast!!

I actually made some today! the only difference is I swap chia seed with pecan (no chia seed in pantry) and add honey to add richness to the sauce. I must say it's so yum.... I had hot (couldn't wait, so I cooked the oat lol) for brekky and saved some in fridge for tomorrow's brekky :)
looks delicious!
This looks so good! I want to try things that have a lower amount of sugar in them. Better for you!
@allischaaff it sounds like it would be amazing with coffee. :D
Right @ButterflyBlu ?!? It's such a great fall breakfast!!
