Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal {Naptime Everyday}

Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal via The Naptime Chef

I love making big family breakfasts on the weekend. I find it so relaxing to wake up on Saturday morning with nothing particularly urgent to do except making something warm and cozy to eat in our pajamas. With the weather in full fall mode last weekend I decided to make an awesome baked oatmeal to start the weekend right. I had a fresh bag of McIntosh apples on hands, plenty of cinnamon, and everything I needed to whip up this easy breakfast.

The beauty of this casserole is that it takes just a few minutes to put together. Then it just bakes in the oven while you patter around the house getting everything organized for a fun weekend. Once it cools off I like to serve it with a drizzle of warm maple syrup and hot chai on the side. As you kick off the holiday weekend keep this recipe in your back pocket. Your family, and even guests, will love the sweet textured breakfast that tastes like fall.


Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal


3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
½ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ground ginger
3 apples, cored, peeled and chopped
2 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
2 cups 1% milk
3 tablespoons raw sugar, plus more for garnish


1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a 2-quart baking dish and set aside.

2. In a large bowl mix the oatmeal, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. Then add in the chopped apples and toss. Spread the mixture into the baking dish.

3. Whisk together the sugar, milk, and cooled butter. Pour this liquid over the oatmeal mixture and press everything down so it is packed into the baking dish with the milk.

4. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, or until the mixture is light brown around the edges. Allow to cool slightly before serving with a drizzle of maple syrup.
