2. Overnight Oats: In large bowl, stir together almond butter, maple syrup, cinnamon and salt until smooth and blended. Slowly whisk in almond milk until blended and combined. Stir in oats and chia seeds. Let stand for 10 minutes.
3. Divide one-third apple mixture among 4 sealable jars or parfait glasses. Layer half overnight oats on top. Repeat layers once. Finally, top with remaining apple mixture.
4. Cover and refrigerate for 6 to 8 hours or until oats are tender and softened. Top evenly with granola before serving.
