Today’s #appleweek recipe is sponsored by Flavahan’s Oatmeal and Pyrex.
I was so excited to combine oatmeal and apples for this event! And once I saw the absolutely gorgeous pie plate from Pyrex, I knew that I wanted to try my hand at another delicious baked oatmeal!
I was a oatmeal hater until I stumbled upon a fantastic baked pumpkin spice oatmeal a couple years ago (it’s a texture thing). Then I created a salted caramel mocha version last year (drool), so I wanted to pull back and make a “not stuffed with chocolate” version this year.
Added to that, the Cook the Books Club book this month is the second book in the Little House Series, Farmer Boy, which in addition to being a wonderful book to share with my kids (I loved the Little house book when I was little), it is also packed full of foodie inspiriation – and so so much of it revolves around apples! I love it!
In the book, Almanzo’s mother often serves apples (I still want to try my hand at Bird’s Nest Pudding) and oatmeal every day at breakfast for her hard-working family.
So I made this healthy baked oatmeal (with a drizzle of homemade caramel sauce if you please) that would be sure to hold over even hard-working farm children!

Yum! I absolutely love baked oatmeal and that dish is so pretty! What a fun way to start #appleweek!ReplyDelete
I am combining with CTB on tomorrows post. This oatmeal was perfect for both events.ReplyDelete
I STILL have never tried a baked oatmeal. But I might just have to now. Isn't that pie plate gorgeous?! My mom tried to steal it from me last night when I brought them some applesauce cake in it.ReplyDelete
I'm going to have to try this! Sounds like something I would love.ReplyDelete
What's wrong with a "stuffed with chocolate" oatmeal?!ReplyDelete
But seriously, apple cinnamon and oatmeal are a perfect combination. I love that you baked it in a round pan so that it looks like you're having a slice of pie for breakfast!
Hi Amy, I am sorry I haven't commented on your post before. I didn't seem have an email or comment on the CTB site for your entry but checked out a few of our regulars (like you) who usually join in and was happy to find this one! ;-) Your baked oatmeal looks delicious and perfect for the book. I am loving that caramel sauce drizzle. Thanks for joining in with Cook the Books.ReplyDelete
A great idea and it's wonderful you included apples which were everywhere in the book!ReplyDelete
I had never heard of baked oatmeal, until a book I just finished, in which they are served that for breakfast at a spa retreat, and then your dish. What a concept. Will have to give it a try.ReplyDelete
I also had never heard of baked oatmeal, so thank you for making this dish: it looks lovely in your presentation! (I like minimalism :)ReplyDelete
