Apple Baked Oats:This apple cinnamon baked oatmeal is inspired by traditional Amish baked oatmeal and studded with apples, raisins and loads of cinnamon flavor. It’s the vegan, gluten-free and great for meal prep.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… baked oatmeal is the best thing since overnight oats! I’ve been on a baked oatmeal kick this year and I’m so glad you’re just as obsessed as me because that means I get to keep trying and sharing new flavor combinations.
Each month, I’ve been making a seasonal baked oatmeal flavor and this month we’re going with apple cinnamon. Late September is the start of apple season so the timing is perfect. Head to a local apple orchard or grab some fresh apples from your local market and whip up this delicious apple cinnamon baked oatmeal.
