Y’all already know that I’m a baked oatmeal aficionado, so it should come as no surprise that I’ve concocted a new seasonal rendition for you. This autumn, how does a big serving of Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal sound? It’s loaded with chewy oats, studded with chunks of apples and crunchy pecans, spiced with cinnamon, and sweetened with maple syrup…and it’s the perfect way to warm up on a chilly morning!

Who am I kidding here? September just arrived and it’s still 95°+ in Texas. However, that doesn’t negate the fact that this Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal has already saved us on busy mornings since school started. You see — just in case you aren’t already familiar with the wonders of baked oatmeal — it happens to be an ideal make-ahead breakfast. Not only is it tasty fresh from the oven, but it’s also delicious the next day (or the day after that, if it lasts that long), reheated with a splash of milk.

This baked oatmeal recipe is filling, wholesome, and lightly sweetened. I think it’s delightful as is, but feel free to serve it with an additional drizzle of maple syrup, should you feel so inclined. Just don’t tell my kids I said that. Oh, what does it matter? They’ll be too busy fighting over the last piece to hear you anyway.

It’s yummy and nourishing, it’s easy to make and quick to reheat. In fact, it’s pretty much the oatmeal incarnation of a crisp fall day…and for those of us still subjected to sweltering heat, that’s about as good as we’re going to get until mid-November. 😉

Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal

Yield: 6 servings

Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal

Tender apples, warm cinnamon, and sweet maple syrup flavor this wholesome Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal, sure to become a new fall favorite!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup diced apples (about 1 medium apple)
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 1/2 cup milk, at room temperature
  • 2 eggs, at room temperature
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup coconut oil, melted and slightly cooled

Instructions

  1. Position rack in center of oven and preheat to 350°F. Lightly grease (or spray with nonstick cooking spray) an 8- by 8-inch glass baking dish.
  2. In a large bowl, combine oats, walnuts, cinnamon, ground ginger, and salt. Mix in diced apples, applesauce, milk, eggs, maple syrup, and vanilla. Stir in coconut oil until all ingredients are well combined.
  3. Spread mixture into prepared baking dish and bake for 30 minutes or until set and light golden brown on top. Allow to cool in the baking dish for at least 5 minutes before slicing. Serve warm with optional garnishes, such as warm milk drizzled over the top and additional chopped walnuts.

Notes

I used a Braeburn apple because that's what I had on hand. I left the skin on, but you may peel the apple, if you prefer. I used whole milk and unsweetened applesauce, but feel free to swap out your favorite type of milk and/or sweetened applesauce, if you wish. Finally, you may also substitute pecans or another type of nut for the walnuts.

The reason the milk and eggs should be at room temperature is because if they are cold, they will cause the coconut oil to resolidify. To quickly warm everything up, I usually just put the whole eggs in a bowl of warm water for a few minutes and zap the milk in the microwave for 20 to 30 seconds.

Reheat oatmeal by placing an individual serving on a plate, drizzling with a little coconut milk, and then heating in the microwave for about 30 seconds.
