Everyone has been absolutely loving our new Peanut Butter, Banana, Chocolate Chip Baked Oatmeal, so we decided to make another amazing version!

You CANNOT go wrong with apple and cinnamon baked in an oatmeal, right? This flavor combination reminds me of the little oatmeal packets I used to have when I was a kid, but of course cleaned up and using whole ingredients that I feel good about baking with and eating. It’s so easy to put together, using only one bowl and once it’s mixed together you place it in the oven and forget it. It’s perfect for breakfast, an after school snack or to bring along to a potluck.

  • Looks amazing! Wondering if replacing some of the oats with protein/collagen to up the protein content would be a possibility?

    This is a new favorite in our house! It totally reminds me of a clean version of my favorite oatmeal packets growing up. The apple cinnamon was always the first to disappear 🙂

    To up the fiber, I left the skin on the apples and added 2 tablespoons of ground flax seeds. Next time I’ll try adding some collagen protein to the mix to add some extra protein. I did sprinkle the top with extra cinnamon, the smell of it baking had my hubby coming into the kitchen asking if I was baking apple pie. SO GOOD! I told him it was Lexi’s recipe (the one that came up with the best gluten free birthday cake) and he said, Thanks, Lexi! Lol
