Baked oatmeal is one of my favorite breakfasts to make. It’s so simple to put together and can be made in so many different flavors.

My kids also LOVE it and I love that I can feed them a healthy breakfast that they enjoy.

The recipe I am sharing today is for my Apple Cinnamon Bake Oatmeal.

This is currently at the top of my favorite flavors list and is perfect for the cooler Fall weather we have coming in.

I love the baked apple and warm spice flavor. Something about it just makes me feel cozy.

Baked oatmeal is also a really great option for meal prep. I like to make a batch on Sundays to serve to my kids for breakfast throughout the week.

It will keep for 5 days in the refrigerator in an airtight container.

So let’s talk about how you make this apple cinnamon baked oatmeal!

HEALTHY BAKED OATMEAL RECIPE INGREDIENTS:

To make this Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal, you will need:

Dry Ingredients:

  • Gluten free old fashioned rolled oats: Quick cooking oats may also be used. This will make the texture a bit softer. I like to use a mixture of both quick cooking and rolled oats most of the time.
  • Coconut sugar: Brown sugar can be used instead. You can also leave this out completely if you want a lower sugar option.
  • Baking powder
  • Cinnamon
  • Salt

Wet Ingredients:

  • Unsweetened applesauce 
  • Dairy free milk of choice: I use “So Delicious Unsweetened Coconut Milk”.
  • Maple syrup
  • Vanilla extract 
  • Apples: You can use any kind of apples you prefer.

HOW TO MAKE GLUTEN FREE AND VEGAN HEALTHY BAKED OATMEAL:

  1. Preheat oven: 375°F.
  2. Mix together dry ingredients: In a large bowl, mix together dry ingredients.
  3. Add dry ingredients: Add all of the wet ingredients except for the apples to the dry ingredients and mix together until they are evenly incorporated.
  4. Fold in apples: Fold the apples into the oatmeal mixture.
  5. Pour into pan: Pour into a greased 8×8 baking dish or 9×11 baking dish for thinner oatmeal bars.
  6. Bake: 20-25 minutes or until the baked oatmeal has set.
  7. Cool: Allow the baked oatmeal to cool completely before removing cutting.  If you can’t wait and want to eat it right away you can, but the oatmeal bars probably wont hold their shape as well.
  8. Store: Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

Most of the time when I make this recipe, I leave out the coconut sugar.  The maple syrup adds plenty of sweetness for my family’s tastes.  If you are used to more sweet breakfasts then I recommend keeping it in.

  1. This breakfast looks so good I may have to go mix some up right now. It looks so simple and tasty! I appreciated the tips about leaving out the sugar, which we often do, and about mixing the quick and regular oats. I don’t have any quick oats, so I’m going to soak my oats in the coconut milk for a while, which softens them – I’d be curious if you ever do that. Thanks!

    1. Thank you, Beth! I haven’t tried soaking the rolled oats in coconut milk but it’s a great idea to soften them up. Let me know how you like this baked oatmeal once you give it a try! ☺

  2. What a great recipe, we have recently gone gluten free and I have been searching for a gluten free breakfast idea. So easy and since we live in New York State we always have lots of apples ?.

  3. Have you tried freezing this? It makes a lot for just one person to use up in less than a week. Sounds good though, I’d like to try it, if I can store some for longer than 5 days. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Hi Naomi, This should freeze well. I recommend cutting up the oatmeal bars and freezing them separately so that you can just grab a bar the night before you are ready to eat it and let it thaw overnight in the refrigerator.
