Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal

20131127 Oatmeal

This is ridiculously easy. It is also very warm and filling, which makes the perfect idea for a post-holiday breakfast or a brunch. You can put the whole dish together in just a few minutes the night before and then pop the oatmeal into the oven. You will have fresh, warm breakfast in no time at all! This will easily serve about 6 adults.

You will need…

  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 c pure maple syrup (or honey if needed)
  • 1 t cinnamon
  • 1/4 t nutmeg
  • 1 t vanilla extract
  • 1 t baking powder
  • 1/4 c melted butter (could substitute canola oil)
  • 1/2 c unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 small apples, grated
  • 1 1/4 c milk
  • 3 c old-fashioned oats
  • 1/4 c brown sugar

Then you will…

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine everything except for the brown sugar. Mix until well combined.
  2. Lightly grease a 9-inch pie plate or a 9×9-inch baking dish with non-stick spray.
  3. Spread the mixture into the prepared pan.
  4. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  5. In the morning, take the oatmeal out of the fridge while you preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  6. Uncover the oatmeal and bake for 30-40 minutes, until the center is set.
  7. Sprinkle with the brown sugar and return the oatmeal to the oven for another 5-10 minutes to caramelize the sugars.
  8. Serve warm with whatever toppings you like!
