Baked Oatmeal with Apples

Healthy Living, Recipes

I often hear that not having enough time to cook is the reason that so many folks can’t eat healthfully. I like this recipe because it requires some prep, which can be done when you have some time, and then baked ahead of time. 

At 12 servings per recipe, this could feed your family for more than a few days, or could be frozen then retrieved as needed. Baked oatmeal is a hit with kids too – it resembles a cake or sweet bread, with the added sugar coming from maple syrup or fruit. 

I advise my patients to be sure to include protein at breakfast, and this baked oatmeal provides 3 grams per serving. You could bump up the protein even more by experimenting with an unsweetened protein powder, chopped nuts, or flaxseed in the mix… or serving this alongside an egg, a dollop of nut butter, or Greek yogurt.

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 12-cup muffin pan with paper baking cups. Add flaxseed meal and cider to small bowl; mix briefly. Let sit 5-10 min, to allow meal to absorb cider.

Add oats, 1/2 cup apples, raisins, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt to large bowl; stir to combine. Set aside.

Combine applesauce, almondmilk, oil, and syrup in separate bowl. Add applesauce mixture and flax mixture to oat mixture. Fold ingredients together until evenly mixed and liquid almost absorbed. Spoon batter evenly into baking cups, filling almost to top of cups. Top evenly with remaining apples; press gently into oat batter.

Bake 28-32 min until tops are lightly browned and toothpick inserted comes out mostly clean. Remove from pans; let cool to room temp.
