Gluten Free Baked Brown Sugar and Apple Oatmeal is a flavorful, moist, baked brown sugar and apple oatmeal that makes a healthy and complete breakfast. I love that a batch of this feeds three for a week.
I have never been a fan of oatmeal for breakfast. While I love oatmeal cookies; wet, gooey oatmeal like my grandmother used to make is just not my thing. I realized within the last few years that the reason I do not like oatmeal is because my grandmother simply could not make good oatmeal. Her version of oatmeal was instant and it was just a pile of soggy, bland, mush. I, however, prefer oatmeal to be moist but not soggy, flavorful not bland, and thick with different textures not mush.
Gluten Free Baked Brown Sugar and Apple Oatmeal
A few weeks ago, James was making some oatmeal for his breakfast the next day. He likes soggy oatmeal but I don’t hold that against him. It smelled pretty good and I decided the kiddos would like a nice, hot from the oven baked oatmeal. I thought about making Gluten Free Baked Berry Quinoa and Oatmeal but I wanted something with apples and brown sugar. I experimented with changing some things around and came up with this recipe for Baked Brown Sugar and Apple Oatmeal.
- 3 cup gluten free rolled oats
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 2 TBSP cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 c brown sugar
- 3 large apples
- 2 cups milk
- 4 TBSP butter
- 1 TBSP vanilla extract
- 3 eggs
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Lightly grease baking dish with butter.
- Core and chop apples. You could slice the apples if you wished.
- In a bowl, mix together all dry ingredients.
- Stir in apple slices.
- Melt butter in a microwave safe, medium sized dish.
- Stir in vanilla, eggs, and milk.
- Combine liquid ingredients with dry ingredients, stirring to just moistened.
- Pour apple mixture into baking dish.
- Bake for 40 minutes.
I like to mix this up the night before and store it in the fridge. Then first thing in the morning I pop it in the oven to bake. This breakfast casserole will keep in the fridge for a up to a week. For an extra special treat for the kids, drizzle warm caramel sauce over their serving. My kids love it when I do this!
How do you like your oatmeal?
