This wholesome apple cinnamon baked oatmeal is perfect for a fall breakfast, weekend brunch, or easy weeknight "binner" (breakfast for dinner if you're new to the term 😊). Warm baked apples, soft chewy oats, and fall spices. Made with real food ingredients like whole grain oats and ground flaxseeds and is minimally sweetened with pure maple syrup.

While this can definitely be enjoyed all year long, it for sure needs to make an appearance during apple picking season. And if you're in need of more seasonal apple recipes, be sure to try my air fryer apples and healthy apple crisp.
