Hi friends!

With all the pumpkin hoopla, it’s easy to forget about one of the first true fall foods… apple!  Sure pumpkin spice is pretty fabulous but there is nothing like the smell of cozy apple and cinnamon coming from the kitchen.  It just feels like home.

My Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal recipe is one perfect fall breakfast.  It’s moist, delicious and oh-so-apple-y!

The joy of this Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal recipe is the ingredients are so simple and you probably have most of this stuff in your fridge and pantry.  To bring out the apple flavor I even added a little applesauce into the recipe.  You can put it together quickly in the morning and can be served warm or reheated for several days.

It’s so versatile too!  You can cut it in bars, eat on a plate as shown or serve in a bowl with some extra milk on top.  My personal favorite is in a bowl with almond milk.

My Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal recipe does have real brown sugar it in, but I’ve drastically reduced the amount so it has just enough sweetness. You could also sub some coconut sugar or stevia if that’s what your apple loving heart desires.

I’ll warn you though… the fragrant smell coming out of the oven will have everyone thinking you are making apple pie!  Luckily this breakfast tastes so good that they hopefully will not be disappointed.

I’d happily serve this Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal recipe to weekend company or just when I’m feeling the need for a home cooked nourishing breakfast.

As always the Hubs is my real judge of a dish success and he loved it.  He even said he normally doesn’t like oatmeal, but this was awesome!  Score.

    Apples are probably my favorite go-to fruit (honestly a really hard decision to make because I love food so much, haha)–this sounds heavenly! <3 I love having baked oatmeal for breakfast in the fall + winter!

      I always have them around too. Often in my purse!

    You really can’t beat the brown sugar/apple combination. Something about it – like a match made in heaven! I love the little pieces of apple in this. I bet they bake up beautifully.

    Made this tonight. Turned out wonderful! I did not have applesauce so I used pumpkin butter instead. It tastes awesome! Can’t wait to eat it for breakfast with some vanilla yogurt. P.S. I also threw in a handful of dried cranberries. Thanks for this healty and easy recipe.

    I love apples! They are my favorite fruit ever, so I know I would love this baked oatmeal!
    I am totally on board for fall! I am so over 90+ degree temperatures.

    Ohh this looks like a perfect dish to make at the beginning of the week and give to the husband for breakfast! Well, and for me, haha. I am not on the total fall bandwagon yet. If it wasn’t 90 degrees this week still, things might be different. I bet this weekend when it drops to 75 for a day, I’ll be all about that fall weather!

    • JulieWunder September 9, 2015 at 9:08 am - Reply

      It looked like it was going to stay in the 70s here this weekend!

      Yum!!!! It’s cloudy and raining today, so it totally feels like it!

    Wow, I’m definitely going to try this. We’re going apple picking soon and probably have more than we need, so making this dish will be great. Thanks for sharing

  23. Yum we are on the same page with the apples week. This looks great thanks for linking up with us for Meatless Monday

      There is nothing like a fresh apple from Henderson county!
