Apple Peanut Butter Baked Oatmeal

April 27, 2017

Ever since I posted a picture on Instagram a while ago of my favorite oatmeal recipe, I’ve been eating it almost every day in the mornings. It’s super quick, healthy, and what’s not to love about apples and peanut butter? It’s one of my all-time favorite food combinations, and putting it into my morning oats is absolutely amazing. I was on Pinterest the other day, and I found this snickerdoodle baked oatmeal from The Seasoned Mom. The idea of baking oatmeal and having it for breakfast in little bars is genius. After reading her blog post, I honestly can’t remember how I lived without it. How did it never occur to me to make oatmeal in baked form until now? Thank goodness for Pinterest!

It’s no secret that I love apples, for sure. We buy our apples in bulk from Costco, so I had to find a way to use them up so they wouldn’t go bad. Also, peanut butter is probably my favorite food… ever. I’ve made donuts, and even hot chocolate with it. Let me know if y’all want more baked oatmeal recipes, because I’d love to make more!

Ingredients
Baked Oats
  • 2½ cup rolled oats
  • ½ cup cashews (or nut of choice)
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
  • pinch of salt
  • 1-2 Fiji apples, chopped into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup almond milk
  • ¼ cup peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil, melted
Topping (opt., but highly recommended)
  • fresh apples
  • peanut butter
  • honey
  • chia seeds
  • hemp seeds
  • flax seeds
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a square 9x9 baking tin with parchment paper, and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine oats, nuts, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Make sure spices are evenly distributed among the oats.
  3. Whisk together eggs, milk, peanut butter, honey, vanilla, and coconut oil. If the peanut butter is too hard, microwave for about 30 seconds until smooth and stirrable.
  4. Pour wet ingredients into dry, stirring until a "batter" is formed. Add in chopped apples, give a final stir, and transfer into parchment-lined baking pan.
  5. Bake for 40-45 minutes, until the top has turned golden brown and the apples are soft. Serve with a generous drizzling of peanut butter, honey, and/or any other toppings. Enjoy!
