Fresh apples and warm spices make Baked Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal a fall must-have that hits the spot all year long. Whip up a batch at the beginning of the week and kick off every day with a healthy breakfast!


  • 2 3/4 cups (275g) old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup (168g) packed light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 2 cups (480ml) milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) applesauce
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 tbsp (56g) unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 1/2 cups (420g) diced apple, 23 large apples (like Honey Crisp or Gala)


  1. Lightly grease a 9×13-inch baking pan with nonstick baking spray and set aside. Preheat the oven to 325°F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the oats, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.
  3. Add the milk and eggs to another medium sized bowl and whisk together to combine.
  4. Add the milk mixture, applesauce, vanilla extract, butter and diced apples to the oat mixture and stir until well combined.
  5. Spread the mixture evenly into the prepared baking pan and bake for 35-40 minutes or until it is set. It may still jiggle a touch, but it should look set and not liquid-y.
  6. Serve warm or at room temperature. You can serve it as is or even serve with a little maple syrup.
