Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal is packed with sweet, tender apples, cinnamon, and maple syrup. It’s perfect to feed the whole family on the weekend or to make ahead and reheat for a quick and easy breakfast!

because i love him

Early breakfast – If you need a quick and filling breakfast that you can make ahead of time and reheat throughout the week, this baked oatmeal is for you.

healthy and wholesome breakfast – Oatmeal is a whole grain and a great source of fiber that can help you feel full longer. Oatmeal may also help lower blood sugar levels and the risk of heart disease.

easy to customize – This baked oatmeal recipe is easy to customize. You can swap the apples for another type of fruit, like pears or berries. The spices can be swapped out, as well as the ingredients for the oatmeal.

Ingredients you will need

  • Rolled oats: also called traditional oats. They are thicker than quick oats and have more texture.
  • Ground Cinnamon and Allspice – A warm blend of spices often seen in fall cooking recipes.
  • Baking Powder: Helps cooked oatmeal puff up and rise a bit.
  • Milk – Any kind of milk will work for this recipe. I used unsweetened almond milk.
  • Eggs – Eggs help give cooked oatmeal texture and hold it together.
  • Maple syrup
  • Vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste – I like to use vanilla bean paste because I find the vanilla flavor more concentrated.
  • Apple: Use a firm, crisp, sweet apple. Honeycrisp, Gala, or Pink Lady apples are great choices.
  • Pecans – Optional, but I love combining apples and pecans and it adds a nice crunchy element to oatmeal.

How to make baked oatmeal with apples and cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray an 8×8 or 9×9 pan with cooking spray. If you are using an 8×8 dish, the oats will likely need a few more minutes to cook as they will be thicker.

In a large bowl, combine oats, spices, baking powder, walnuts, and apples. Mix everything together.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, maple syrup, and vanilla. Pour it with the oat mixture and mix everything.

Pour it into the prepared pan. If you want to add a visual touch to the oatmeal, add a few thin apple slices on top. Cook oatmeal for 35-40 minutes or until thickened in the middle.

Let the oatmeal cool for at least 10-15 minutes before serving. This gives you the opportunity not only to cool down a bit, but also to assert yourself. If you try to cut cooked oatmeal right after you take it out of the oven, it will likely fall apart.

Serve cooked oatmeal as is or with one of the suggested toppings listed below.

Ingredients for baked oatmeal

There are many options when it comes to decorating baked oatmeal. Keep it simple and add a bit of salted butter and a drizzle of maple syrup or honey.

For a protein boost, add plain Greek yogurt sweetened with cinnamon maple syrup and a drizzle of almond butter or other nut butter. This is my favorite way to eat it and what you see in the photos.

Diced apples and walnuts or walnuts would be another great topping.

storage and heating

Baked oatmeal can be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container for 3-4 days. After that, I recommend freezing it.

If you want to cook the oatmeal and freeze it for later, cook it in a freezer-safe container that ideally has a lid. Let the oatmeal cool completely.

Once cool, cover it well with a piece of plastic wrap and then cover it. If you don’t have a lid, tightly cover the plastic wrap with aluminum foil. Oatmeal can be frozen for up to 3 months.

To thaw frozen baked oatmeal, simply let it sit on the counter for 45-60 minutes or take it out the night before and let it thaw in the fridge.

To reheat the entire tray of rolled oats in the oven, cover with a sheet of aluminum foil and bake at 180 degrees for about 15-20 minutes. You can also reheat individual slices in the microwave.
