Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal

If you are looking for the perfect fall breakfast -- look no further.  I'll introduce you to apple cinnamon baked oatmeal.

Best part: You can make this dish the night before and just bake in the morning!

The tartness of the apples combined with the oats & cinnamon make for a wonderful breakfast. 

It's as delicious as it sounds. And healthy too. 


No artificial sugars or anything.

Just good, old fashioned oats, apples and cinnamon.

And, since I make our plain baked oatmeal with applesauce rather than oil/butter, I thought I'd do the same here!  What's a little more applesauce, right?

Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal - Adapted from the Benhase Home

  • 3 C Old Fashioned Oats
  • 1/2 C honey
  • 1 T cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 C milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 C applesauce
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 apples, chopped


Start by mixing together the dry ingredients.

Then, add in the wet ones.

Lastly, fold in the apples {I used up some frozen apples for this}.

Spread into a 9x9 glass baking dish.

Cover, and refrigerate overnight. 

In the morning, uncover the baking dish.  Then, place the cold dish into the oven.  After the dish is in the oven, turn the oven on to 350 and bake for 40ish minutes, until the baked oatmeal is no longer runny and it is set and lightly browned.

Serve warm - either as a slice, or with milk.  

This breakfast recipe was inspired by one of my Friday Favorite finds!!

  17. I've never made baked oatmeal before, but this looks absolutely wonderful! Do you think water could be subbed for the milk?

  18. Hi, Liz -- I'd suspect the water would work just fine. I haven't tried it, but you can make oatmeal with either milk or water, so I would suspect you could make baked oatmeal with either too!

  19. TASTY! This looks so delicious and simple :)

  21. I completely missed the part that says to refrigerate it over night...guess we will find out what happens! and i used maple syrup instead of honey

  22. it did work well to cook it instead of letting it sit over night. Now sure what the difference would be, but it tastes like your reg. baked oatmeal with apples! and the maple syrup also worked well!


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you; especially how you're finding JOY in your kitchen.
