Apple Pie Baked Oatmeal

As already established on this blog, my family loves brinner.  I try to make breakfast for dinner at least once every other week, although I think they could eat it every night without complaining!  A few nights ago I made Apple Pie Baked Oatmeal and it was delicious ~ and a really inexpensive meal to make!  I used a basic baked oatmeal recipe and tweaked it a little, and here's what I ended up with....

I realize it would have been better to take the picture before we ate most of it, but there were hungry mouths to feed!

Here's the recipe:

3 eggs beaten
2 cups milk
1 tbsp cinnamon
a few dashes salt
5 cups rolled oats
2/3 cup vegetable or canola oil
1 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp vanilla
4 tsp baking powder

Mix all ingredients.  Add one can apple pie filling (chop up the apples into bite-sized pieces).  Pour into greased 9x13" pan.  Bake at 350 for around 30 minutes or until golden brown.  Sometimes needs to set up for 10 or so minutes after baking.

This would also be a really good dessert with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and some caramel sauce....mmmm.....glad we have some leftovers...

Enjoy :)

This sounds fabulous! We too love breakfast dinner--so much so that dh and I had breakfast for our wedding reception, rather than dinner(I like brinner, btw, I think I will steal that lol) and this is a great alternative to the same ol' eggs and pancakes!

Sounds delicious! How awesome -- serve it for dinner, have a second helping & top it with cool whip (we never have ice cream around here) for dessert! You don't even need to change dishes! Okay, just being a bit silly on that one. Will be trying this.

oh that sounds yummy on this windy day!! I wonder if I could substitute the oil with applesauce to make it more Weight Watchers friendly?? I just may have to try it! Thanks!

I made this tonight with some minor changes. I halved the oil and sugar (I'll try substituting applesauce for the oil next time like someone suggested) and used sugar free apple pie filling. I also only ended up using about a cup of the oat mixture topped over the pie filling. The flavor was great and it was crazy healthy for dessert. Love it!!!

Hi Erica....hope you get this message, I was having trouble going through your profile.

Yes, you should be able to use quick oats! I typically use them pretty interchangeably. Hope you enjoy!
