Why You'll Love This Healthy Baked Oatmeal
The best thing about baked oatmeal is that you have breakfast ready to go for multiple days in advance! Who doesn't love simplifying their mornings?! This healthy baked oatmeal will be a hit with your family or little ones and makes mornings easier.
I crave this especially during the colder months when I want a warm meal instead of my usual smoothie bowl. You can reheat a serving of amish baked oatmeal in the microwave, toaster oven or oven, any way will work!
Made with Apples, Raisins and Walnuts
My favorite thing about this baked oatmeal recipe is the mix-ins! This is where we add in loads of flavor. I used two small Honeycrisp apples, but any apple will work! Tart, crisp and slightly sweet varieties are best. Gala apples and Pink Lady apples are some of my other go-tos for apple recipes. Check out these easy apple hand pies and this amazing coffee cake to use up your leftover apples.
Plump and tangy golden raisins pair beautifully with the cinnamon oats and sweet apples. I've been a fan of raisins since I was a kid, but I especially love a good oatmeal raisin cookie! Add in some chopped walnuts for a little crunch and you're all set to make this tasty breakfast with rolled oats.
How To Make Amish Baked Oatmeal with Apples:
First things first, preheat your oven to 350F. To start, grab a medium sized mixing bowl and add in rolled oats, coconut sugar, diced apples, golden raisins, chopped walnuts, cinnamon, ground ginger, baking powder, salt and melted butter. Stir the dry ingredients together until combined.
Now it's time to combine the wet ingredients. To a small bowl, mix together egg, milk, pure maple syrup and vanilla extract.
Next, pour the wet mixture into the dry ingredients and stir. Let soak for 5 minutes to soften the old fashioned rolled oats.
While you wait, line an 8x8" baking dish with parchment paper. Then, pour and spread the oat mixture into your prepared dish.
Finally, bake at 350F for 30-35 minutes until edges are lightly golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean. The top should be set and not wet to the touch.
Let your baked oats cool slightly before slicing into 9 squares. Enjoy warm or cold. Cover and store in the fridge for a few days.

Need to make a substitution?
Simply use your favorite dairy-free milk. Oat milk would be perfect in this baked oats recipe!
Chopped pears would pair beautifully with the sweet, cinnamon oats and tangy raisins.
Although I have not tested it, I believe a flax egg would work in this recipe. Be sure to use plant based milk and vegan butter as well. Let me know in the comments if this works for you!
Swap for Raisins?
If you're not a fan of raisins, I recommend substituting dried cranberries or chopped medjool dates. If dried fruit still isn't your thing, chocolate chips are always a classic option.
