A little make-ahead breakfast goes a long way in setting you up for a week of success, and this apple pie baked oatmeal is just the thing you need on a cold fall or winter morning. Filled with rolled oats, cinnamon, pecan, fresh apple, and a touch of maple syrup, this baked oatmeal is a naturally sweetened and high-fiber breakfast that will keep you fueled and full until lunch.
Apple season, it’s just the best, isn’t it? There are literally thousands of different ways you can use apples, from savory to sweet dishes, breakfast to dinner, and snacks to desserts. Personally, I just love a good crunchy apple on its own as a simple snack, however, my second favorite way to eat them is in my morning oatmeal. The good news is, you don’t need to stand over a hot stove every morning, especially if you are short on time when you can make a batch of baked oatmeal for the whole week. Whip up this simple apple pie baked oatmeal on a Sunday afternoon and you’ll have a delicious quick and easy breakfast ready to go every morning of the week!
