If you can’t tell, I’m obsessed with baked oatmeal right now. From chocolate oats to French toast oats to oats with zucchini, I’ve been trying a lot. And I’ve already tried a blueberry pie, so thought I’d try apple pie oatmeal. And YUM, y’all. So much yum.
One of my favorite parts is that I can make enough for just one person! Or I can double it and make some breakfast for Husband when he’s home in the morning on the weekends. You could even quadruple this and make a big batch, and that goes for all of the baked oats recipes I’ve posted. It’s so versatile too! Allergic to nuts? Don’t add them! Want to add peanut butter? Go for it! The possibilities are truly endless, you guys. I hope you enjoy!

A sweet, perfectly spiced baked apple pie oatmeal perfect for weekday and weekend mornings alike. It's satisfying, providing a full serving of fruit to start your day!
- 1/2 banana, mashed*
- 3 tbsp water/nondairy milk
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1-2 tbsp date paste (or 1 tbsp maple syrup)
- 1 tbsp ground flax/chia
- (optional) 1/8 tsp turmeric
- (optional) 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 apple, chopped
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1-2 tbsp crushed walnuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (176 C) and ready a ramekin for baking with parchment paper or non-stick spray. (I don't use either of those - I bake right within my ramekin, eat straight from it, and wash immediately.)
In a mixing bowl, combine everything but last three ingredients and mix well.
Add apple and oats and stir to combine. Add walnuts here if you don't want them sprinkled on top.
Transfer mixture to ramekin and sprinkle walnuts on top. You can even place some of the chopped apple on top too.
Bake for 20-25 minutes and then enjoy once cooled slightly!
*You can use fresh banana or frozen-thawed banana. I've done both and they both work well.
