Peanut Butter Apple Baked Oatmeal



After I shared the Cranberry Apple Baked Oatmeal recipe last week I decided I wanted to test out some other baked oatmeal flavours.  I found a Peanut Butter apple recipe from twopeasintheirpod Blog and modified it to be a bit more ‘clean’. Everyone knows my Favourite evening snack is peanut butter and apples so this recipe was right up my ally!  


I made this tasty baked oatmeal last night for a weeks worth of breakfasts to go. Coming out of the oven it smelled SO GOOD!! 


This recipe is super quick to make and it tastes like a peanut butter oatmeal cookie. Pairing this with Greek yogurt and warming it up is the perfect winter morning breakfast especially if your on the go🍴 


If your following the 21 day fix I'm counting it as 1 yellow container. There are apples and peanut butter, almond milk and honey all in there but it's mainly oats and not enough apples for a purple container or even half, as well not enough peanut butter per serving for a single spoon.  So just like you would a treat it's 1 Yellow container.  



Apple Peanut Butter Baked Oatmeal

SERVES 8

INGREDIENTS:
2 cups old fashioned oats
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon baking powder 
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 3/4 cups almond Milk (or milk of your choice) 
1 large egg 
3 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup Homemade Peanut Butter (or creamy natural peanut butter)
1 1/4 cups diced apples (I leave the skin on)

DIRECTIONS:
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8 x 8 square baking dish and set aside.
2. In a large bowl, mix together the oats, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Set aside.
3. In another small bowl, whisk together the almond milk, egg, honey, applesauce, and vanilla extract.
4. Pour the liquid mixture over the oat mixture and stir to combine. Let it sit for 5 minutes. Stir in the peanut butter and mix until combined. Add the apples and stir again. Pour mixture into prepared pan.   Top with sliced apples and cinnamon
5. Bake for 35 minutes or until the top is golden and oatmeal is set. Let cool for 5 minutes and serve warm.

Note-this baked oatmeal is great reheated in the microwave. We like to make a pan and eat it throughout the week. This recipe can easily be doubled for a 9 x 13 pan. Use gluten-free oats to make this recipe gluten-free. You can serve with a drizzle of honey or maple syrup, an extra splash of almond milk, cinnamon, or raisins if desired!
