For clean eaters, apple pie may be a distant memory, long gone from the palate and the plate, but there's good news. You can still have many of the flavors with a few healthy tweaks.

First, we're taking out the whole pie thing. Sorry.

Instead, we're going to move breakfast with this apple cinnamon overnight oats recipe. It's super easy and you can make it in advance for a breakfast that’s ready when you wake up.

I've talked about overnight pumpkin oats, but this time, let's focus on fresh fruit and a few spices to get that clean eating fall apple pie taste.

Overnight oats are as easy as throwing a few key ingredients into a big mason jar before you go to sleep. You give it a shake, and then wake up to a healthy, already-made breakfast.

I've experimented with leaving out the fruit and nuts until morning, but actually you don't even need to do that.

The apples and walnuts retained their crunch even after sitting with the oats overnight.
