Apple Pie Baked Oatmeal

This fun breakfast has the flavors of apple pie baked right into a nutritious oatmeal package.  It is easy to make and the leftovers are great too! 



      Apple pie baked oatmeal is a perfect fall breakfast.  It is cozy, delicious and loaded with apple goodness. The best part is you can make a batch on the weekend and reheat slices for breakfast throughout the week. (Ps. It is extra amazing with a dollop of vanilla yogurt on top!) 


      I originally made this recipe in the fall of 2015.  I was just dipping my toes into what was going to grow into a baked oatmeal obsession.  

      Little did I know I would spend the next few years developing all kinds of healthier dessert inspired recipes. I haven't heard any complaints around here yet!



    MiMi especially likes the baked oatmeal inspiration.  She was here when I made the first batch and she has been making it ever since. 

      The pictures from way back when were less that appealing.  I certainly still have a long way to go, but I figured I would use getting new pictures as an excuse to bake up another batch.



      Beside I had just loaded up on apples and want to make the best of them while they are in season. I just love apple season! 

     Now I will take you back to the original post from the fall of 2015.

      Can you tell we like our oatmeal around here?  Little Dude asks for it all of the time knowing he will get to help make it.  

    This time we made an apple pie inspired version.  I cubed some apples and tossed them in cinnamon, cloves and lemon juice.  We spread them in the bottom of a pie plate and went to work on the oatmeal portion.

Original from 2015. I just couldn't take it out!


   Little Dude dutifully got the oatmeal ready to go.  We spread it over the apples and tossed it in the oven.  

     When it came out there were delicious flavorful apples covered in a soft oatmeal layer with a crunch top crust.  It was perfect.  



    We ate some plain and some with yogurt on top.  Both ways were wonderful.  It was a fun way to welcome in apple season and fall!  Too bad it just went back to being hot and humid! 

     Baked oatmeal is great reheated, so don't be afraid you won't be able to eat it all.  You don't even have to wait for company to enjoy the flavors of apple pie!

  1. I have been waiting for this one. So glad it's here. You made that just before I got to your house to hang out with Jaxon. It smelled so good while it was baking. Jaxon loved eating it but he brought that wonderful scent with him all morning. That should be a cologne. I take that back. That wonderful smell made me hungry all morning.

  14. I made this for breakfast for my Valentine. I actually baked it yesterday on my wood stove. My home smelled so good I couldn't wait to reheat and eat it this morning. I sprinkled some toasted chopped almonds on top during the last few minutes of baking. My Valentine and I really enjoyed it. Thank you for the great recipe. You have the best baked oatmeal recipes.
