Apple Pie Baked Oatmeal

Good morning!  
Don’t you just love crisp fall mornings?!
These are the kinds of days when a steaming cup of coffee 
and a bowl of hearty oatmeal is pure heaven!

We don’t eat a lot of oatmeal during the summer months, 
so it tends to end up on our breakfast table come fall.
There’s just something so comforting about it, 
and I love knowing that the kids tummies are full of good stuff. 

I must come by that honestly…
…growing up we ate a lot of oatmeal, or as we called it – porridge.
My Dad would get up early on weekday mornings and have a big pot of it on the stove for us.  I didn’t really appreciate it then, but I sure do now!  
I find our mornings too rushed and tiring to get a pot on the stove in time, so I like to prep the night before and put together an oatmeal for baking.  Baked oatmeals are the best!
They are so versatile, easy to make and delicious!
Last weekend I put together an Apple Pie Baked Oatmeal so I could get it in the oven on Saturday morning before we headed out for a busy day.
It was sooooo good!

Being able to have breakfast baking when you are getting ready to go somewhere is the best!
When it’s ready, just serve it with a little milk or cream.
Heaven.

Baked oatmeals are also great for when you have guests over,
because you make it the night before and put it in the oven first thing in the morning!  
It just really takes the pressure off in mornings!  Love that!

Here’s the recipe!

Ingredients

  • 3 cups old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp allspice
  • pinch of ground cloves
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 3/4 cup homemade apple sauce (it can be chunky)
  • 1/2 cup raisins

Instructions

  1. Whisk together eggs, oil, milk and vanilla. Then stir in apple sauce.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together oats, sugar, baking powder, salt and spices.
  3. Combine egg mixture and oat mixture.
  4. Add raisins.
  5. Pour into an 8x8 baking dish. Then cover and refrigerate overnight.
  6. In the morning, give the oatmeal a little stir. I found if you don't do this, the egg mix tends to settle into the bottom. So give it a little stir.
  7. Then put the dish into a cold oven, and bake at 350 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes.

Notes


- If you aren't a fan of strong spice like allspice or cloves, you can omit them and just add more cinnamon instead (this is how I like it!). Or if you love spices, you can even add in some nutmeg.
- You can cut the oatmeal into squares to serve, or just scoop it out as you wish!
