Apple Pie Baked Oatmeal

Good morning!  Don’t you just love crisp fall mornings?  These are the kinds of days when a steaming cup of coffee and a bowl of hearty oatmeal is pure heaven!

We actually don’t eat a lot of oatmeal during the summer months, but it does end up on our breakfast table quite a few times in fall and winter. There’s just something so comforting about it, and I love knowing that the kids tummies are full of healthy food.

I must come by that honestly because growing up we ate a lot of oatmeal, or as we called it, porridge.  My Dad would get up early on weekday mornings and have a big pot of it on the stove for us.  I didn’t really appreciate it at the time, but I sure do now!  I find that our weekday mornings can be a bit too rushed to get a pot on the stove in time, so I like to prep the night before and put together an oatmeal for baking.  Baked oatmeals are the best!  They are so versatile, easy to make, and delicious!

Baked Oatmeals are great for busy mornings!

Often on weekends I will put together an Apple Pie Baked Oatmeal on Friday night so I can get it in the oven on Saturday morning before we head out for a busy day.  Or if I’m really organized I’ll make one on Sunday night so it’s ready to go Monday morning for the kids before they head off to school.

Being able to have breakfast baking when you are getting ready to go somewhere is the best!  When it’s ready, just serve it with a little milk or cream.  Heaven.

Make a big batch and serve it when you have overnight guests.

Baked oatmeals are also great for overnight guests.  If you need to, you can easily double the recipe. But what I really love about baked oatmeals is being able to make it the night before which takes the pressure off in the morning.  Just pop it in the oven in the morning, then put a pot of coffee on to enjoy while you wait.  Easiest morning ever.

Here’s the recipe!  Enjoy.

    I’ve never been an oatmeal girl (except cookies) but I am interested in this. How would you describe it in terms of texture? Is it more firm, like a soft, oatmeal-y brownie?

      Hi Kelley! I would call it creamy and soft…I like the texture of this better than mushy stovetop oatmeal… Hope that helps?
