Baked Apple Oatmeal Recipe: an Easy Crowd-Pleaser Breakfast

Today I’m sharing one of my favorite recipes for an easy breakfast: my baked apple oatmeal recipe! I bake this in the oven while I’m cooking other things and it gives me breakfasts for days. Plus it’s gluten-free! (NOTE: If you have Celiac’s disease, you must get certified gluten-free oats.)

Here we go!

 

Baked Apple Oatmeal Recipe

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  •  2 cups milk (dairy, almond, etc.)
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar or pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1-2 finely cut apples
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

 

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients listed above.
  • Pour into pre-greased 1 1/2-quart Corningware dish, or any medium-sized baking dish. (I “pre-grease” with coconut oil spray or olive oil spray.)
  • Top with more cinnamon, if you wish. (I’m a cinnamon-aholic.)
  • Bake in oven for about 30 minutes.
  • Oatmeal should come out bubbling. I undercook mine just a tad because it continues to soak up the milk as it is stored in the refrigerator.
  • To reheat: add a few drips of water per serving before reheating in microwave.
  • Enjoy!

Slow Cooker Apple Crisp Recipe

Ah, fall. While I am still a summer girl at heart, there’s something pretty nice about the warm smells of fall. I’m a sucker for anything with apple and cinnamon, so I love to toss around ideas for apple crisp that’s easy, pretty healthy and delicious. (and by “pretty healthy”, I mean “very little sugar added”!)

 

Follow the directions below, put it in your Crock Pot/slow cooker for 4 hours and enjoy! (note: I use 2 tsp of melted coconut oil in Step 2- forgot to mention that!)

 

Tip: This goes well with oatmeal, roasted oats or some ice cream. 🙂
