When I was in college, during my Junior and Senior years, all I ate was oatmeal. I constantly baked with oats, my breakfast was ALWAYS instant oatmeal and baked oats was a frequent dinner. If you go back far enough you’ll definitely find some of my old baked oats recipes here on the blog! I was obsessed. So heading back to my roots with these Apple Pie Baked Oats!
This week both my parents and I bought a ton of apples (obviously we didn’t coordinate on our groceries)! So obviously we had a bunch of extras and while trying to figure out what to make with them I came across an old baked oats picture on my laptop. I immediately knew it was time to bring the baked oats back. Alas, Apple Pie Baked Oats!
During the Fall and Winter, when berries aren’t so readily available, my go to fruits are bananas and apples. They taste a bit more comforting and they’re even a bit more filling. I’ve been loving sauteed apples poured over my pancakes, waffles and oat bowls. Super easy but feels super fancy!
A few of my favorite Apple Pie Baked Oats toppings:
- Nut butter
- Mixed nuts
- Trail mix
- Chocolate Chips
- Chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds
1/3C almond milk
1 scoop collagen
1 tsp baking powder
A few shakes of cinnamon
1/2 of an apple chopped up (use half of this for in the mixture and the other half for on top when it’s all done)
1 tsp vanilla
Grease an oven safe dish and pour the combined ingredients in.
- Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees
- Grease an oven safe dish and add your oat mixture
- Pop in the oven for 30 minutes or until the top is golden
- While the oats are baking, sauté the other half of the chopped apples in coconut oil and cinnamon
- Once the oats are done, throw them on top and drizzle with a little nut butter!
