Great for breakfast or dessert this Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal is like a cross between cooked oatmeal and cake and it is delicious.
It probably doesn't come as a surprise that I love oats, you will find many yummy recipes using them right here on Slimming Eats.
3 different delicious homemade granola recipes - Pumpkin Granola, Banana Granola and Chocolate Granola. I've been really enjoying having these or breakfast or dessert with yoghurt and fresh fruit. It bulks up the Healthy Extra B serving of oats a little more and makes them much more filling.
As well as the granola recipes, I have also made various yummy doughnuts using oats - such a White Chocolate Glazed Doughnuts, Pumpkin Doughnuts, Chocolate Doughnuts, Banana Doughnuts and even Oreo Doughnuts. If you haven't given any of those a try yet, you really must.
I had a few things to get done the other morning and wanted to prepare something for breakfast that I could throw in the oven, let it cook for a while and it be ready once I was done and so figured baked oatmeal would be a good option and went on a search of the contents of the fridge for inspiration.
I spotted a jar of chunky apple sauce and figured it would be perfect. (I always like to have apple sauce on hand, because it is great for sweetening baked goods for the kids without adding lots of sugar). Obviously syns in apple sauce will vary slightly, so be sure to double check the one you use.
If you have time, you could even make some homemade apple sauce for this Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal. You could even add in some chopped fresh apple (also synned because fruit when cooked, blended or pureed becomes syns), I like the apple sauce though, as it tends to pack more flavour and sweetness.
To sweeten this Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal I used some Sukrin Gold, but any sweetener will do, just be aware the taste may differ if you use a different brand of sweetener as some tend to have a bit of an aftertaste. I like Sukrin, because it is the only sweetener I have found that has no aftertaste. So worth investing in some if you haven't already.
This Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal will also be gluten free if you use gluten free oats (not all oats are gluten free, so be sure to check the ones you use). Unfortunately because of the yoghurt, it isn't dairy free, but you could try this with a dairy free yoghurt alternative (let me know how that turns out if you do).
- 40g (1.5oz) of Oats
- 2 tablespoons of chunky Applesauce
