Ingredients for making Apple Pie Baked Oatmeal:

  • The base of the baked oatmeal is old-fashioned oats to which we add some chia seeds, pecans and coconut for crunch and texture.
  • We also mix in some baking powder for the perfect cakey texture.
  •  Apple pie spice or pumpkin pie spice up the cozy. You can use store-bought or make your own apple pie spice by mixing 1 1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon with 3/4 teaspoons of nutmeg, 1/2 teaspoon of allspice, and 1/4 teaspoon of cardamom.
  • Salt is an important ingredient for all oatmeal bakes and porridges. Don’t skip it!
  • Maple syrup adds some nutty sweetness to the oatmeal bake
  • Instead of eggs, we add some applesauce as a binding agent. Mashed/pureed fruit helps to give this baked oatmeal a muffin-like texture and some moisture. You can either use store-bought unsweetened apple sauce or make your own applesauce by pureeing cooked or canned apples.
  • Before baking, we soak the oats in some non-dairy milk – use coconut, almond or oat milk.
  • For the apple pie layer, we toss some apple chunks with cinnamon, brown sugar, and maple syrup. I also add in some more nuts.

Tips & Substitutions:

  • You can use sub the oats for other grain flakes such as quinoa flakes or rice flakes.
  • To double the recipe you can double everything, if it seems like there’s too much liquid just add a few more Tbsp of oats and bake in a slightly larger pan for up to 45 mins or until the apples are done to preference.
  • For this vegan baked oatmeal, use stoneware or a ceramic baking dish so that the edges don’t get brown and chewy.
  • You can add some raisins, chopped dates or cranberries to the oatmeal bake if you’re a fan.
