While apples are still in season, you guys have got to make this dish.
I recently had a couple girlfriends over and made this Apple Pie Baked Oatmeal for brunch which is essentially baked apple pie in oatmeal form, sans the fat. Imagine that.
My version consists of apples, oats, raisins, pecans, cinnamon and almond milk.
Clearly, this recipe is healthy, however feel free to add a tablespoon of melted butter to the egg batter for slight richness. A little butter around the holidays doesn’t hurt, coconut oil would work well too.
And once your oatmeal is baked, pour some cold almond milk on top with a drizzle of maple syrup. It's that combination of hot and cold, sweet and savory that tastes absolutely incredible.
A little dash of cinnamon on top adds depths of flavor too.
A delicious and healthy brunch with the ladies or the family. Hope you guys love it as much as my girlfriends and I did.

i have tried a similar version with overnight oats and it was delicious!!! i could see this being a brunch fav.
Definitely a good health option. I love baked oatmeal. 🙂
YUM! Love baked oatmeal- I often make something similar but in a vegan version! Along with apple pie baked oatmeal, banana bread baked oatmeal is always a winner for me- there's something so comforting about cooked bananas!
Yes, definitely love it with banana. I make Blueberry Banana as well and it's so good. Bananas just add a natural sweetness which is so nice. 🙂
