Preparing Baked Apple Oatmeal
All you have to do is chop, mix, and bake. The best part is it can be made ahead of time and warmed up when you are ready to eat. Perfect for brunch too. Full instructions are in the recipe card below.
- Wash, peel, core, and chop your apples.
- Place all the ingredients into a prepared baking dish.
- Mix well and place into the preheated oven.
- Bake until done.
- Remove from oven.
- Scoop into bowls and enjoy.
Apples, cinnamon, and maple syrup combined together is so warm and cozy. Perfect for chilly fall and winter days.
Apples of any kind are great for this baked oatmeal. You can adjust the amount, so add more or less. I like to peel them but feel free to leave the peel on.
Maple syrup can be replaced with honey, brown sugar, coconut sugar or agave. Adjust the amount according to your taste.
Milk can be dairy or non-dairy. Additional milk when serving is completely optional.
Rolled oats should be the large flake, old-fashioned kind. Regular rolled oats will work. Instant or steel-cut oats will not work well. Gluten-free oats work!
Garnish is optional. I like dried cranberries and pumpkin seeds. Nuts, dried blueberries, and raisins are great options.
Store leftovers covered in the fridge for 4-5 days. This recipe can be made ahead of time.
Reheat the entire dish in the oven. Individual portions are easily heated in the microwave, great for a quick breakfast in the morning before heading out the door.
