Combine oats and almond milk in a jar, put the lid on and leave to soak in the fridge overnight. In the morning give your overnight oats a good stir, to ensure all ingredients are mixed well.
For the apple compote
Add butter, apples, cinnamon, date syrup and water to a medium saucepan. Stir over medium heat for 3-5 minutes until apples are very tender.
Remove from heat and cool completely.
To serve, in the morning top your oats with the toffee apple compote.
Variations on this recipe:
We like to eat our Toffee Apple Overnight Oats cold, but you could also heat them up in the microwave for a few seconds (please ensure you use a microwave safe dish for this). Alternatively, you can prepare the toffee apple compote in the morning and serve it as a hot topping for your overnight oats.
Feel free to swap almond milk for your favourite vegan nut milk. Cashew, hazelnut and coconut milk all work really well.
