Stove-Top Verses Baked Apple Oatmeal

Stovetop oatmeal and baked oatmeal are really two different kinds of oatmeal in my opinion. While stovetop oatmeal has a liquid feel to it baked oatmeal almost has a bit of a cake-like texture and feeling to it. One of the reasons I love baked oatmeal is that you can make a larger portion of it and have it throughout the next few days. Whereas, regular stovetop oatmeal is more of a one-and-done kind of meal.

Prepping The Night Before

Another great aspect of this apple oatmeal is you could prepare this the night before and when you wake up and grab your first cup of morning coffee just pop it in the oven to bake.

Mixing the rolled oats with the wet ingredients of this recipe will in turn give you an even softer baked oatmeal the longer it sits, plus, with all the delicious apple and cinnamon it will just add even more flavor to the oats the longer it sits and marinates.

What Apples Should I Use?

When it comes to this baked apple oatmeal recipe I say whatever apples you have on hand would work perfectly. For me, I love Honeycrisp Apples. So 90 percent of the time when I have an apple recipe I will grab a Honeycrisp out of my fruit bowl and bake away. Other apples that work great in baking are also Granny Smith Apples and Fuji Apples. This is a great recipe to put together too after visiting an apple orchard! So really, it is an all-around fall season win!

How To Make Baked Apple Oatmeal – Step By Step

  • So, depending on if you are making this the night before or the morning of, we will need to preheat our ovens to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Next, grab a large mixing bowl and measure out the rolled oats, brown sugar, baking powder, and cinnamon.
Dry oatmeal and ingredients in a mixing bowl.
  • Give the dry ingredients a good mix then add in your egg and milk of choice, I used almond milk for my recipe. Give it a good mix to make sure everything is evenly coated.
  • Next, using either a pie plate, cake pan, or baking dish, grease the entire dish to prevent anything from sticking to the surface. I used an 8-inch pie plate and it worked wonderfully well.
  • Pour out the contents of your mixing bowl into the greased pie plate or whatever you chose to use.
Wet ingredients in pie plate.
  • Slice a few slices of butter and place overtop the oatmeal mixture, this just adds a nice rich buttery flavor to your oatmeal.
  • Wash and core one apple in even thin slices.
  • Place the apple in a circular design around the top of the oatmeal mixture.

  • After having our apples laid out on our oatmeal, we need to make a cinnamon sugar topping to put on our apples! Now, you could skip this step completely if you want to add less sugar to your recipe, but it does add a very nice flavor to the dish!
  • To make the cinnamon sugar all you need to do is mix brown sugar, granulated sugar, and cinnamon.
  • Once you have your sugars and spices mixed sprinkle them on top of the apple slices.
  • Bake on the middle rack of your preheated oven anywhere from 40 to 50 minutes, most of the moisture will be evaporated at this point and the cinnamon apple topping will be nice and soft.
  • Once the dish comes out of the oven I like to serve it immediately with some warmed-up almond milk.
  • Just spoon a portion of the baked apple oatmeal into a bowl and pour over some warmed milk. It is so good.

Using A Pie Plate For Baked Oatmeal

Since I have been making baked oatmeal I love using my pie plate, it always bakes up so nice, and have never stuck or burned to the bottom. Plus, it is all porcelain so I believe it cooks at a much even temperature instead of drying everything out. If you are looking for something similar I had found this one on Amazon that is super similar to the one I use all the time! Check it out here.
