Additional Notes: 

This recipe is very adaptable, so feel free to add some chopped walnuts, pecans, almonds, raisins, or even other fruits into the oatmeal before baking!

*Can substitute another sweetener of your choice, such as 1/2 cup sucanat, 1/4 cup honey, or 1/4 cup maple syrup.

**I don't peel my apples, but you can if you'd like.

***We use heavy whipping cream and make our own homemade whipped cream (see box for instructions) by beating with an electric mixer and a couple tablespoons of sugar.

For an even creamier baked oatmeal, add 1/4 cup of heavy cream into the mixing bowl when making this recipe!

I have also substituted water for part of the milk when I was low on milk, and it turned out great.

This Baked Apple Oatmeal recipe is my adaptation of Kristin's Baked Apple Pie Oatmeal. Kristin created her recipe and it is really super good so be sure to go see hers! I only made a couple small changes to the ingredient list, and simplified the directions to make this even easier than it already was!

Tammy's Review: 

I've made this oatmeal about 8 times so far, and we just love it.

Served with whipped cream on top, it's like a cross between apple pie and apple crisp (without the "crisp" and some creamy yumminess instead!).

Joshua and I both agree this makes a good breakfast (served with plain milk on top) or a very easy, healthy dessert (served with sweetened freshly-whipped cream on top!).

This is a true baked oatmeal. As in, it tastes like oatmeal that one bakes instead of, say, an oatmeal cake which is what the last baked oatmeal I tried tasted like. (Had twice as much sugar and was way too sweet for breakfast, in my opinion.) Very easy to make and good. I used half water and half milk. The only changes I'll make next time is to add some vanilla and to chop my apples smaller than I did this time so they cook faster.

This baked apple oatmeal is amazing with whipped cream. We served this to guests, one of whom was skeptical as he remarked "I don't really like oatmeal..." after trying a bowl of this warm baked oatmeal with whipped cream he said "Wow, this is amazing! It's like... a really good apple pie or something." :)

See the recipe notes above for my complete review! :)

My family enjoyed this baked oatmeal. It is easy to make and tastes great! I added about 1/4 tsp. ground cloves in addition to the cinnamon, and will probably continue to do so when I make it in the future.

Edited to add: The last time we had this, I replaced the apples with dried cranberries. Both versions are a huge hit with my family.

We tried this tonight for dessert and it was delicious! My boys both had two big helpings with whipped cream on top. We will definitely be having this again and I'm thinking we'll try the nuts but I didn't have any this time around. I also looked up the nutritional value on the nutritional calculator you showed us a few weeks ago and it's only 141 calories a serving if you divide it into 6 servings. That's great! Thanks for the recipe. Have you tried the pumpkin version at the link you gave?

Made this today! Yummy! Added pecans as I had a ton leftover from holiday baking. Will definitely be making this again, especially when we have milk to use up before it expires! Thanks!

Recently found your site and I made Easy Baked Apple Oatmeal. It was delicious!! Even the 15 year old (who wants nothing to do with oatmeal) enjoyed 2 bowls.

This is a good baked oatmeal. I like the creamier texture than others I've had. Didn't add anything to it to eat and it was yummy.

I've been a reader here about 6 months; first time commenting, and this is the first recipe I have made from your site! I am 12 weeks pregnant with my first child and I've had quite a few cravings. I found my mouth watering as I bookmarked at least a dozen of your recipes in the past few days. This happened to be the recipe where I had ALL ingredients on hand, and it just so happened my husband and I were trying to figure out a way to get rid of some Granny Smith apples quickly:-) I made this on a whim last night as we had dinner baking in the oven and I am so glad I did! This recipe is a keeper. I warmed some up this morning and added a little milk to the top...delicious! I am curious to try it with a little whipped cream on top, as you suggested, for a healthy dessert;-) This would be great to bring to a brunch potluck. Thank you so much for your wonderful recipes, I am so glad I came across your site! :-)
