Let’s pretend it’s fall, okay? This baked apple cider oatmeal tastes like fall, and we could all probably use a touch of autumn in the dead of summer. It’s intensely hot out there, but if it’s cool enough in the morning, you won’t regret making this dish for breakfast. You can also save this recipe for the fall though. Or…just do both. That’s what I’m gonna do! So let’s do this!
Remember those Peanut Butter Fudge Bites we made last week? Uh, yeah. We’re making a baked oatmeal with them today. Because why not? Peanut butter can do no wrong, and combining it with apple is a magical experience. Seriously. This is one of my better ideas, and I’m sure you’ll see why when you make this delicious baked apple and peanut butter fudge oatmeal!
It’s a baked oatmeal day. I mean, when isn’t it? Even when it’s 110F here in Phoenix, I still don’t mind baking up a delicious oatmeal. Because mmm! And this one is no exception, even with minimal common ingredients. It’s totally fruit-sweetened too, which makes me super happy. So let’s get into the kitchen while it’s still cool and make this yummy baked cherry pie oatmeal!
This recipe was kind of an oops recipe. I had no idea what new flavor to try, but I definitely wanted banana and zucchini in there (because zucchini is my favorite thing to put in my baked oats!). So I thought I’d add some coconut (because why not?) and DUDE. It came out amazing!! It tastes like banana bread AND zucchini bread, and that hint of coconut is the perfect way to bring it all together. Sure, it’s getting hot this summer, but it’s always a good time for something THIS good.
If you’re into sweet potato pie, you may want to try this baked sweet potato pie oatmeal out. Because it’s a totally legit way to eat pie for breakfast. It’s as easy as my other baked oatmeal recipes, though you do need to use cooked sweet potato. But baking a sweet potato is simple, so no worries. Just enjoy this (pie) for breakfast. Mmm!
When a friend comes up with a new baked oatmeal flavor, you try to make it. And sometimes you crush it in one try, like with this baked pina colada oatmeal. Mmmm, you guys!! This one is totally a hit. I absolutely love pineapple (see last week’s pineapple orange juice for further proof) and can’t wait to make more of this bad boy this summer. It’s like a delicious treat for breakfast, so you can’t go wrong.
This one got a huge “YES!” from Husband. I *really* wanted jelly-filled peanut butter muffins but thought I’d make a jelly-filled peanut butter oatmeal instead. When I asked Husband if he had a flavor preference for a baked oatmeal, he looked at me with stars in his eyes and said, “We have apples!” So peanut butter apple it was. And dude. SO glad we did it. Mmmmmm!!
Remember when we made sweet potato carrot cake muffins? No? Well, go check those out and then come right back, y’all, because we’re making some baked oatmeal with the same delicious flavor and just as much, if not more, nutrition! YUM! I used purple carrot shreds for this, but you can use orange (or whatever color carrot your heart desires). The taste will still rock your world.
Have any pineapple left from the sweet pineapple oatmeal we made on Monday? I sure hope so. Because we’re about to make some seriously amazing baked pineapple upside-down cake oatmeal. That’s right. We’re doing this. Come on. Get into the kitchen with me and make this deliciousness happen.
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.
