Apple Pie Baked Oatmeal

I love making apple baked oatmeal, and had the idea while I was falling asleep last night, to make it in a pie dish with apple sliced on top.  I couldn’t wait to get up early this morning and make it!  Baked oatmeal is always a lovely breakfast but this made it extra special.

It has three apples altogether, lots of oats, healthy plant milk, only a little bit of natural sweetener, and natural sweetness from the raisins.  So it’s a filling breakfast or could even be a really healthy dessert.  I use eating apples, as they are naturally sweeter too.  My kids love it.  It’s full of goodness and slow-releasing energy so hopefully it’ll keep them full until lunch.

It’s makes a lot of portions, so there’s loads leftover for snacks or for the next morning.  I think it’d be really good with cashew cream too!

How it’s made:

Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.

Mix the oats, plant milk, agave syrup, cinnamon, raisins and grated apple, in a large bowl until thoroughly combined.

Put the mixture into a pie dish and press down firmly.

Arrange the sliced apples on top and press them lightly into the mixture.

Bake for about 25 minutes, on the bottom shelf in the oven, keeping an eye on it towards the end so it doesn’t burn.

When it’s baked, spoon it out of the pie dish into bowls.

Serve warm or cold.
