Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal
An easy baked oatmeal with hints of apple and cinnamon in each bite. This apple cinnamon baked oatmeal is perfect for breakfast or brunch!
- 2 1/4 cups old fashioned or large flake rolled oats
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/2 cups almond, oat or milk of your choice
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
- 1/3 cup maple syrup
- 1 medium apple, peeled & diced (about 1 - 1 1/4 cups) Gala or Honeycrisp apples are a favourite to use
- Optional: extra apple sliced for topping
Preheat the oven to 350F. Grease an 8x8 or 9x9 pan with butter or non stick cooking spray.
In large bowl, mix together dry ingredients (oats, baking powder, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg & salt) and set aside.
Whisk together wet ingredients (eggs, milk, melted butter & maple syrup) and pour into bowl with dry ingredients.
Stir all ingredients together until combined. Pour mixture into prepared pan, smooth the top and add sliced apples for extra garnish if you choose.
Bake for 35-45 minutes (depending on the size of the pan used), until the edges are slightly golden brown and oatmeal is set. Remove from the oven and let stand 5 minutes before serving.
Serve with more maple syrup or try a drizzle of almond butter.
This baked oatmeal is my new go-to for the cooler season. I love the warming spices paired with the apples – they basically make your kitchen smell like you’re baking an apple pie!
And the best part is this recipe lends itself well to meal prepping too.
