Have you had baked oatmeal yet? It’s quickly become one of my favorite breakfasts. With wonderful texture, lots of fruit, and a hint of sweetness, this is a whole grain breakfast that everyone will love. It’s also a cinch to throw together — so you can make it, bake it, and do all the other things you’ve got going on this busy time of year. This better-for-you version is naturally sweet and delicious with bananas, loads of apples, and a bit of honey.
Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal
2 1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, plus more for the top
2 tablespoons butter melted and cooled
2 cups milk
1/4 cup (or more) honey
2 apples, cored and rough chopped
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Grease an 8″ square baking dish.
In a medium bowl, combine the oats, baking powder, salt, and spices. In a small bowl, whisk together the butter, milk, honey, and egg.
Slice the bananas and arrange in a thin layer along the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Add half of the oat mixture, and then half of the apples. Add the remaining oat mixture and press the remaining apples into the top. Pour in the milk mixture, sprinkle with cinnamon, and place in oven.
Bake for 35 – 45 minutes, or until the mixture is a light golden brown along the edges.
