Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal Recipe

Vacation is finally over and I am a little sad to see it go.  Josh and I had an entire week off and we did absolutely nothing. Well, we watched an obscene amount of movies and did our fair share of cooking, baking, and eating, but nothing too strenuous. It was nice to relax and spend time together. One of the highlights of our week was breakfast time. Every morning we made a special breakfast to enjoy together. One of my favorite recipes from the week was apple cinnamon baked oatmeal.

I usually wake up every morning at 5:00 so I can go to the gym and get my day going. I also like to go to bed early, but things changed while we were on vacation. We stayed up late every night and slept in almost every morning (Josh says 7:00 doesn’t count as sleeping in, but for me it is sleeping in). It was nice to slowly wake up and stay in our pj’s while we cooked breakfast. On a cold, snowy morning we made apple cinnamon baked oatmeal and it hit the spot.

Baked oatmeal is comforting, satisfying, and delicious. This baked oatmeal recipe is seasoned with cinnamon and diced apple chunks. It is easy to put together and only takes 20 minutes to bake. I like to serve a buffet of toppings on the side. A few of our favorites include: raisins, dried cranberries, chopped almonds, and brown sugar. I also like to pour warm milk over the top of my portion. So good! If you have leftovers, don’t throw them out, baked oatmeal is great reheated. It will keep in the refrigerator for about a week. Make a big batch on Sunday so you can enjoy a healthy and delicious breakfast all week long.

If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to eat healthy, add apple cinnamon baked oatmeal to your breakfast menu. This oatmeal is a good source of fiber, fruit, calcium, and will keep you full for hours. Start your day off right with apple cinnamon baked oatmeal. It is warming, wholesome, and good for the soul.

  1. This is delicious! Today is the 3rd Sunday in a row I’m making it for grab-and-go breakfasts for the week. But I do have to say it takes more like 30 minutes to set the oatmeal- it could just be my oven (but this is the only recipe where I have to cook it for significantly longer than the recipe suggests).

  2. Hello! I just made this baked oatmeal for breakfast, and it was delicious! I added a cup of raisins.

    Just wondering— would this be okay to put in the freezer and reheat later in the month? Sometimes my morning routine gets the best of me and I forget to eat breakfast! I was thinking this could be a good thing to have on hand for those mornings.


  3. Hello! I was wondering if you’ve ever used almond milk instead of skim? Thanks so much for the great recipes and congratulations on your pregnancy!

  4. I love love this recipe! I have made the recipe twice and it so easy. Perfect for “leftover” breakfast throughout the week. Now I’m going to experiment a little with adding other fruits and spices. Can’t wait!

  5. This is delicious! I made it so I could portion it out for the week but couldn’t help and eat some right away! Great texture and perfect flavor. Thank you!

  6. Just made this. Absolutely delicious!!! I did use Almond Milk instead of the Skim. I am overwhelmed by all these delicious recipes. I could just park myself here, learn these recipes and be a cooking expert because of all of these great ideas/ resources. You MUST get a regular cookbook out there, for times when I run out of ink or technology isn’t my friend!! Haha! Thank you so much for sharing.

  7. Love this delicious recipe. I make it often. I cook it early in the week, cut into large slices and store in fridge. Family grabs a slice, tops with a little milk & favorite toppings. Quick healthy breakfast all week long! Thank you!
