Apple pie meets oatmeal in this baked version of the two treats. This baked oatmeal is seasoned with apple pie spice and has grated apples in each bite. Kids and adults alike will love this simple dish: It’s sweet, spiced, moist, and delicious! Enjoy this baked apple pie oatmeal for breakfast, as a snack, or even dessert. It’s a simple mixture of oats and apples, plus maple syrup, nut butter, and dairy free milk.
This oat mixture is then spread in a baking dish and sprinkled with crumbled Ginger Lemon Turmeric LivBar. Then, it’s baked to a golden, crumbly perfection in just about 30 minutes!
Rather than opting for those instant, processed oatmeals, it’s easy to make your own at home. Those flavored oatmeal packs, albeit convenient, generally contain added ingredients like flour and sugar. Rather, this recipe has the most necessary ingredients and is free of gluten and refined sugar. It’s also vegan! That means everyone can enjoy this snack that’s loaded with autumn apple spice flavor.
