When fall comes around, baked oatmeal makes a great breakfast! It’s actually good any time of the year, but I tend to make it more often in the cooler fall and winter months. This Apple Baked Oatmeal is especially perfect for autumn! It’s sweetened with brown sugar, applesauce, and diced apples. You don’t even have to peel the apples if you like leaving the skins on (I like using organic apples in this and since they’re pesticide-free, I leave the skins on).
This baked oatmeal has an apple-cinnamon flavor and tastes best eaten warm. I usually cut it into squares and serve it in a bowl. It tastes great on it’s own, but you could also pour a little milk over it, or even drizzle some maple or apple syrup, or honey over it. So many possibilities! 🙂
You can bake this oatmeal up in a 9″ deep dish pie plate or an 8 x 8″ baking pan. The pie plate, bowl, and other items shown in these photos are from maryandmartha.com.

The Give Thanks Lazy Susan, shown in both photos, is one of their new products and it’s not only great for everyday use, but perfect for special holiday meals like Thanksgiving!
Here’s the Baked Apple Oatmeal recipe—hope you enjoy it!
Apple Baked Oatmeal
APPLE BAKED OATMEAL
Makes an 8 x 8″ pan or 9″ round deep dish pan
2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup applesauce
2 large eggs
1 1/2 Tablespoons canola oil
2 cups diced apples (about 1 1/2 medium-size apples), peeled or unpeeled
Preheat oven to 350˚F. Lightly grease a 9″ round deep dish pie plate, or an 8 x 8″ square baking pan; set aside.
In a large bowl, mix together the oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt.
In a medium-size bowl, mix the milk, applesauce, and eggs together. Pour this mixture over the dry ingredients in the large bowl and then add in the oil; mix everything together well. Then stir the diced apples into the mixture.
Pour the oatmeal mixture into your prepared pan and bake at 350˚F for 35 minutes, or until set in the center. Let cool 5 to 10 minutes, then spoon or cut into slices and serve in bowls—you can pour some milk over the top of each serving if desired.
NOTE: If you want to sweeten the baked oatmeal even more, you can drizzle maple or apple syrup, or honey, on top!
