This Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal is my new favorite breakfast. I’m actually terrible at eating a real breakfast. I eat the same bar every single day. This apple cinnamon baked oatmeal has changed this for me. It is filled with apples, raisins and tons of cinnamon flavor. It’s gluten-free, vegan optional, free of refined sugars and great for meal prep. The best part is that it can be baked right away, but it can also be assembled the night before and baked in the morning. I like to make mine the night before. Then I let it cool, cut it into portions, and wrap each portion up so I can pull it out of the fridge in the morning and pop it in my air fryer or microwave to heat up!

  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1/3 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 1 ¾ cups milk of choice
  • ¼ cup maple syrup or honey
  • ½ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 large eggs or flax eggs
  • 2 ts vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp melted unsalted butter or coconut oil
  • 1 cup diced apples
  • ¼ cup raisins
  • ¼ cup chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 375° F and grease an 8×8 inch square or 11x7 rectangular baking dish with a little butter or coconut oil.
In a large bowl, mix together the oats, coconut, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the milk, maple syrup, applesauce, eggs and vanilla. Pour into the large bowl with the dry ingredients and stir to combine. Then add the melted butter and mix just until incorporated. (I do this so the melted butter or coconut oil doesn’t solidify in the wet ingredients)
Fold in the diced apples, raisins and chocolate chips.
Pour the oatmeal mixture into the prepared baking dish.
Bake for 25 to 35 minutes, until the top is nicely golden and the middle is set. Remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes. Portion and serve. Drizzle each portion with additional maple syrup or serve with a dollop of your favorite yogurt.
  • To store: Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
  • To reheat: To reheat the whole baked oatmeal, cover with foil and reheat in a 325°F oven for about 20 minutes. For individual portions, set oven to 325°F and bake for 5-10 minutes.
