If you’re anything like me, you’ve occasionally woken up with a craving for apple pie. I know. It’s completely unacceptable behaviour, but there you have it.
I blame my friendly neighbours to the South for this breakfast crush. Although the apple pie is rooted in European heritage, the Americans embraced various versions of it early on and it evolved into one of their iconic desserts. Apple pie is such a beloved comfort food that I’m dreaming about it on cold winter nights and waking up hankering for a slice with my breakfast.
Unless it happens to be the day after Thanksgiving, I generally don’t have a crumb of pie around to go with my morning coffee. However, thanks to the baked oatmeal recipe below, I have better option for breakfast that is easily just as tasty and much more hearty.
Oats are an absolute staple in my kitchen, starring in granola, muffins, pancakes and much more. We even bake oatmeal into bread for a soft loaf that is perfect for snacking. Yes; as they are easy to source, affordable and nutritious, oats of every variety should be stocked in your pantry.
Our breakfasts frequently consist of simple porridge, but occasionally we like to change things up, and that is where today’s recipe for Apple Pie Baked Oatmeal comes into the picture. Rolled oats and grated apple are mixed up with eggs and spices and baked up, pudding-style. It’s not overly sweet – this is breakfast, after all – but you can always finish the baked oatmeal with another drizzle of honey.
This is a good recipe to invite the children into the kitchen to help you prepare. The smallest hands can whisk the eggs or butter the baking dish, and the more skilled helpers can grate the apple and measure the remaining ingredients.
When it has baked and perfumed the entire house in the process, pour yourself a coffee and gather the family together to enjoy what is sure to become a new breakfast favourite.
Apple Pie Baked Oatmeal
This hearty breakfast is reminiscent of classic apple pie and will equip you with vitality for these cold winter days.
- 2 cups rolled oats
- ½ cup buttermilk
- pinch of salt
- 3 large eggs
- 1 cup almond milk
- ½ tsp vanilla
- ¼ cup liquid honey
- 2 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- ¼ tsp freshly grated nutmeg
- 1 apple, grated
Combine rolled oats, buttermilk, salt and 1-1/2 cups of water in a large mixing bowl to soak. Stir to blend, then cover with a towel and leave the mixture on the counter. Soak the oats overnight or up to 24 hours. Soaking oats makes them more digestible and helps your system absorb a greater percentage of the nutrients in the oatmeal.
Preheat the oven to 350F (175C) and butter an 8×10-inch baking pan.
In a large bowl, beat eggs until frothy. Pour in the almond milk, vanilla, honey and melted butter and mix well. Sift in the baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg and combine.
In a colander, drain the oats to remove excess liquid. Add soaked oats to the egg mixture.
Quarter the apple and remove the core. Grate apple on the large side of a box grater then add to the oat mixture and combine well.
Pour mixture into the prepared pan. Add additional apple slices on top, if desired. Place the oats in the preheated oven and bake for 40 -45 minutes or until light golden on top.
Let stand for 5 minutes. Serve warm with milk or cream and additional honey.

Apple Pie Oatmeal Breakfast Bowl
I’m starting 2017 with this apple pie oatmeal breakfast bowl for you guys. Happy New Year friends! I’ve had a lovely break but as you can tell, I’m still on an apple streak and following up last year’s amazing Eggless Apple Bundt Cake with this apple pie oatmeal.
It just seemed so appropriate to start the new year with a breakfast recipe. Because I really can’t think of much else right now. My mind’s still on holiday. How long does it take really to get out of holiday mode? I need to reset my life like yesterday. But somehow, breakfast is the most effort I can make so far. One day at a time I guess.
How was the New Year guys? We started off with a barbecue that Denver and I have pretty much mastered now, including how to get the fire started quickly, and then spent the most perfect NYE on the beach, around a bonfire with close friends. I don’t think it could have been any better!
It was the holiday we needed so bad. But the problem with holidays is that it takes so long to get over them.
I’m now in the warm breakfast mode, because Bangalore still has hoodie weather and Oatmeal seems like the perfect way to start the day.
This apple pie oatmeal is perfect for so many reasons:
- One pot – because everything from stewing the apples to cooking the oats till they are soft and creamy all happens in one pot. I love breakfast where I can start the fire, dump, stir and eat. Perfect lazy still-stuck-in-holiday-mode recipe
- So quick – for days when I can’t be bothered to do much but need enough to get me going till lunch, this apple pie oatmeal breakfast bowl is my go to guy. It takes 20 minutes to finish cooking and you have enough breakfast for everybody. Just double or triple the recipe if there are more than two of you
- Big batch breakfast – Will you judge me if I tell you that when I’m feeling super lazy, I just make a big batch, store it in the fridge and eat this for three days straight? It doesn’t help that it’s also so so yummy. Like apple pie. But for breakfast. Let’s stay friends please.
On those days when I don’t feel like a sweet breakfast, I have my trusty 5 Savory Oatmeal Recipes for Breakfast when I don’t like it sweet.
Okay now Tata-bye bye. I’m getting into PJ’s with my favorite breakfast bowl. See you guys tomorrow.
Healthy Apple Pie Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies
I’m partnering with Bob’s Red Mill ® to bring you today’s recipe! I absolutely love their healthy, top-quality products (flours, oats, protein powder, and more!). They ensure my recipes turn out perfectly and taste delicious every time I make them!
During the winter quarter of my first year of graduate school, I ended up with one class that started at 8 am three days a week, plus a spectroscopy lab at 7:30 am on a fourth day. Around twenty other organic chemistry grad students suffered through the same schedule, and we regularly headed to the closest coffee shop on campus for a caffeine boost as soon as the professors let us out of lecture.
For those four days each week, I set my alarm for 5:30 am (or o’dark thirty, as one of my close friends calls it!) to squeeze in a yoga session, shower, and blow dry my hair. But as a result, I barely ended up with enough time to boil water for tea before dashing out the door… Let alone make a decent breakfast. Staying warm was a much higher priority that winter!
So instead, I usually grabbed a banana to tuck into my backpack. Although a healthier option than the Pop-Tarts and bite-sized powdered sugar donuts that my classmates brought, the banana never kept me full all the way until lunch.
But these Healthy Apple Pie Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies totally would’ve done the trick! They’re full of hearty oats and plenty of cozy cinnamon—but no refined flour or sugar—and perfect for quick grab-and-go breakfasts!
And I’m always a huge fan of wholesome breakfast foods that taste like dessert!
This easy recipe is the next installment in my oatmeal breakfast cookies recipe series. ← Have you tried any of those other ones yet? They have the sweetness level of muffins yet the same chewy texture as traditional “dessert-style” oatmeal cookies. An irresistible combination in my book!
These wholesome breakfast cookies begin with Bob’s Red Mill quick cooking oats (these!) and Bob’s Red Mill whole wheat flour (this kind!). I’m completely obsessed with Bob’s Red Mill products and keep dozens of them in my pantry! Everything from whole wheat flour and oats to coconut flour and protein powder to almond meal and oat flour. All of the Bob’s Red Mill products that I’ve tried have been truly dependable and top-quality—and that makes my baked treats taste even better!
Tip: Quick cooking oats are also called instant or one-minute oats, and they’re smaller and thinner than old-fashioned oats. This means they soften a bit more while baking, which makes your cookies perfectly soft and chewy!
Tip 2: Use Bob’s Red Mill gluten-free quick cooking oats (these!) and Bob’s Red Mill gluten free 1-to-1 baking flour (this one!) to make your breakfast cookies gluten-free!
It’s extremely important to measure the flour and oats correctly , using this method or a kitchen scale. (← That’s the one I own and love!) Too much of either will dry out your dough and make your cookies cakey or crumbly, especially the oats. They act like little sponges and soak up lots of moisture from your cookie dough!
You’ll sweeten your healthy breakfast cookies with pure maple syrup (like this!) instead of refined sugar. Make sure your maple syrup is the kind that comes directly from maple trees, not the fake pancake syrups! Because we’re only adding half the amount of sweetener compared to traditional “dessert-style” oatmeal cookies, you’ll also mix in some milk to compensate for the missing liquid and keep your cookies perfectly chewy.
Of course, we can’t forget the apples and spices that make these cookies taste like apple pie! I prefer red Fuji apples because they’re naturally sweet and have a great firm texture for baking. Plus they taste really comforting when paired with cozy cinnamon and nutmeg!
One final thing! These cookies do not spread while baking, so you must flatten the cookie dough before popping your tray in the oven. I just use a little spatula (like this!) to do so because the dough is usually too sticky to touch with my hands.
Quick, healthy, yummy… All of my breakfast problems are solved! ?? And when you make your own, remember to snap a picture and share it on Instagram using #amyshealthybaking and tagging @amyshealthybaking IN the photo itself! (That guarantees I’ll see your picture! ?) I’d love to see your breakfast cookies!
Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Stovetop Recipe
Note: This recipe dates back to 2013! But it&rsquos still one of my favorite breakfasts. So I have added some new photos and am sharing it again, for those of you that haven&rsquot been hanging around that long.
I can&rsquot think of anything better on a cold morning than a cozy bowl of oatmeal. I think that stovetop recipes can get a bad rap &ndash they really don&rsquot take more than a few minutes. You can still get breakfast on the table (or in a to go cup) quickly, and the possibilities are basically endless.
This apple cinnamon oatmeal is my current favorite.
Fresh apples, apple pie spice, just a little brown sugar, and old fashioned oats. You can have a hearty, happy, warm, delicious breakfast in less than 10 minutes.
I think it&rsquos time for a Lucy update.
My little Lucy girl is getting big!! If you&rsquore new around here you can read more about Lucy here and here .
She is my snuggly little companion. She is smart and sweet and might be the laziest puppy ever.
I was sifting through some blog things today and I noticed that I might be a pretty slack Lucy mama because I never updated my &ldquoAbout&ldquopage to include her. Oops.
Like any puppy she has a few issues, but nothing major. Mostly she just doesn&rsquot like to be left alone. Ever. At all. She&rsquos not the greatest car rider either. She adjusts. And then readjusts. And then she fusses a little. And then she drools.
This morning I drove Evan to school. So we brought Lucy with us. We were completely engrossed in this puzzle game that Chad put on my phone while we waited in the neverending line of non-moving vehicles. We weren&rsquot really paying attention when it was time for Evan to get outta the car. Evan leaped out&hellip
Evan exclaimed, &ldquoOh no!, Lucy. &rdquo and then took off running after her.
Fortunately Lucy wasn&rsquot trying to run away. She was just really excited about all the little kids and she was really sick of sitting in the car.
I had this brief flash of me having to leap out of the car to chase my puppy down. Just so we&rsquore clear about my carpool attire, it consists of a sports bra under a tank top, a pair of sweat pants, flip flops, a mop of curly disaster hair, and a cup of coffee glued to my hand. I was majorly relieved that I did not have to exit the vehicle.
I eat oatmeal at least 3 mornings a week. It&rsquos basically perfect. You can dress it up or dress it down. You can make it taste like your favorite dessert. You can add fresh fruit, dried fruit, nuts, CHOCOLATE! Oatmeal is amazing.
This homemade apple cinnamon oatmeal really never fails me. Lots of good heart-healthy fuel for when you might need to chase a puppy across a school parking lot.
Apple Pie Breakfast Cookies
Apple pie breakfast cookies are like having apple cinnamon oatmeal, pie, cookies, and granola all rolled into one on-the-go apple breakfast treat! They taste decadent, but really just have the same ingredients as oatmeal, with some added protein from the egg. It's like taking a bowl of oatmeal on the road. The apple pie flavor is super comforting and easier than making a whole pie. They are so fast and easy to make. You can freeze them and let them defrost as you make your morning coffee. You can also store them in an air-tight container and enjoy them all week long.
We like to use regular old-fashioned oats, but if you like a softer texture, you can use instant oats. The consistency of the dough will be very similar. If you don't have some of the spices on hand, they also taste delicious with just the cinnamon! Using farm fresh apples during the fall season, make these breakfast cookies especially delicious.
It's important to chill the dough before you bake them so that they don't flatten out and maintain their chewy texture. Also, make sure to use real maple syrup! If you don't have real maple syrup, you could use another kind of natural syrup, like agave. The base of this recipe is printed with permission from Amy's Healthy Baking.
I’ve got good news. This amazing Apple Pie Oatmeal could not be better for a delicious and nourishing meal prep breakfast.
Simply prepare the recipe as laid out below, allow it to cool, and separate into tupperware containers. Refrigerate and enjoy throughout the workweek either cold, or reheated in the microwave with a little extra water to keep the oatmeal nice and soft.

It is also dairy-free and can be made gluten free by using gluten-free oats.
