Baked Apple Oatmeal

I've come across a lot of recipes for baked oatmeal or oatmeal baked in the crockpot lately. So I figured this morning I would give it a shot, I love oatmeal but have never tried it baked before. This was so easy to put together and everyone, including the kids enjoyed it! We've got a busy household in the morning, as I'm sure everyone does, so I was thrilled to know that I can whip this up quickly in the mornings before school and know that my kids' tummies will be full for awhile. Leftovers can be stored in the fridge and warmed up for the next day. I'm excited now to try some different flavor combinations......maybe pumpkin will be next. Stay tuned!

Baked Apple Oatmeal


2 cups old fashioned oats
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup applesauce
1 tablespoon butter, melted
2 egg whites
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 large apple, peeled, cored and diced


Combine oats, sugar, baking powder and salt in a bowl. In a large bowl, whisk milk, applesauce, butter, egg whites and vanilla together. Add oat mixture to wet ingredients and stir until combined. Stir in the apples. Pour oatmeal into a greased 8x8 baking dish.

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until oatmeal is golden brown. Remove from oven and serve warm. Garnish with additional toppings such as raisins, dried cranberries or brown sugar if desired.
