Apple Pie Baked Oatmeal

I never saw it coming, but…

I’m starting to like baked oatmeal. I stopped incessantly craving stove-top oats and started truly appreciating the baked version. I suppose that’s a good thing since that’s what I’m stuck with right now.

Some might think it’s a drawback to have the same oatmeal every morning for a week, but I don’t see it as a problem. Generally, it’s delicious enough that I enjoy the encore breakfasts. 🙂 To be honest, I frequently repeated oatmeals even when I was making them on the stove each morning. If it really rocks, I want to experience it again! 🙂

Apple Pie Baked Oatmeal

What you'll need:

  • 1/2 cup milk of choice
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats (I use Country Choice Organic)
  • 1/2 tsp apple pie spice
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 small apple (or half a larger one)

How to make it:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F and spray a single-serving ramekin with non-stick spray.
  2. In a small bowl, mix milk and vanilla extract. Add oats, pie spice, baking powder, and salt. Stir.
  3. Dice apple into the oats and fold them in.
  4. If you'd like to add any extra ingredients (coconut oil, dried fruit, nuts, sunflower seeds), do so now. I recommend raisins, almonds, or walnuts.
  5. Pour into the prepared ramekin and bake for 18-22 minutes.

    I, too, am on the baked oatmeal train. Love your blog by the way! Some of my recipes are inspired by you 🙂

  2. What can be used if one doesn’t have apple pie spice?

    • Lauren Smith says:

      Cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. About 1/4 tsp cinnamon (maybe a little rounded), 1/8 tsp nutmeg, and a pinch of allspice. Just cinnamon and nutmeg would do the trick, too!

  3. We love baked oatmeal – and even have been known to eat it for dessert later in the week…yummy!

    Can I use regular milk if I don’t have almond milk?

    Can you bake this the night before you eat it and if so how many days will it last? Also how should you store it covered on the counter or in the fridge? Thanks looks yummy;)

    I tried this yesterday and it was awesome! I have some more baking in the oven right now. I’m trying your peanut butter cookie later this week. I love baked oatmeal, and it’s so hard to find individual serving recipes. Awesome site!

    I used pumpkin pie spice because it’s all I had. It’s in the oven, and it smells delicious!

    I just made this(big batch) using my Foreman Evolve grill – it has the perfect size baking pan and I love not having to turn on the oven. It turned out perfect! I am already a fan of overnight oats and will now start making my way down the list of baked oatmeal recipes. Love your site!

    I made this recipe this morning with a small Fuji Apple. The flavor of the oatmeal was excellent, but the texture was disappointing. It wasn’t as cake-y as other baked oatmeal recipes. The oatmeal even had cold spots that didn’t seem baked at all. That was my first time making baked oatmeal with apples. What I learned from stovetop oatmeal is that a whole apple (even a small one) is a bit much; half works much better. I think the same is true for baked oatmeal.

  14. I love the combination of creamy peanut butter with sweet apples and chewy oats! I made my version of baked Peanut Butter Apple Oats, a vegan version of it and it was delicious.

    Your recipe looks delicious, this is a real comfort food in these colder months 🙂 Baked Oatmeal is so good and just a small additional step!
