Peanut Butter Apple Baked Oatmeal

Course: Breakfast
Servings: 5


  • 2 c. old-fashioned oats (gluten free, if necessary)
  • 1/4 c. light brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 3/4 c. low-fat milk (or skim, or almond milk, or any kind of milk, really)
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 Tbsp. unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 c. smooth peanut butter (preferably "natural")
  • 1 apple, any variety, diced but not peeled


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8 x 8 baking dish with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, mix dry ingredients: oats, brown sugar, salt, cinnamon, and baking powder. In a smaller bowl, combine milk, egg, applesauce, and vanilla. Add wet ingredients to dry and mix. Add peanut butter and mix again until well distributed. Finally, add diced apples and stir to incorporate.
  • Pour into prepared pan and bake 35 minutes or until the top is golden. Let sit at least 5 minutes before serving, or, to make ahead, cool completely, refrigerate, and serve in the morning reheated with a splash of milk.
