The addition of sweet apples and the warmth of cinnamon takes plain oatmeal to a new level. It's easy, delicious and a filling breakfast everyone will love. It's almost like eating a slice of warm apple pie with a nutty, earthy undertone. Mmmm! For a simple yet delicious breakfast fix for a crowd, this can easily be prepared the night before (up to Step #4), and then baked fresh in the morning.

How To Make amish style apple and cinnamon baked oatmeal

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 325°F. Lightly butter or spray a 9x13-inch baking dish; set aside.
  • 2
    In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the oats, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, brown sugar, and nuts and raisins (if using).
  • 3
    In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, vanilla and melted butter. Pour the milky mixture over the dry oat mixture. Stir until well combined.
  • 4
    Arrange the diced apples across the bottom of the baking dish. Pour the oatmeal mixture over the applies. If not baking immediately, you can cover the baking dish with plastic wrap, and keep it in the refrigerator at this point. (Remove plastic wrap when ready to bake.)

    Place baking dish oven, and bake for 35 to 45 minutes or until the top is lightly browned and it's firm and not jiggly. Serve warm with a little splash of milk or cream poured on top.
