Apple Pecan Baked Oatmeal

I know pumpkin season is here, but we still have plenty of apples in our kitchen! What better way to use up those apples than in a delicious fall breakfast recipe? Apple Pecan Baked Oatmeal is one of our favorite breakfasts.

Oats are a staple in our pantry that we buy in bulk from our food co-op. We usually have regular oatmeal and baked oatmeal at least once a week, so we’re always on the lookout for new ways to use up our oats.

Apple Pecan Baked Oatmeal

This recipe is a delicious twist on plain baked oatmeal, with a cinnamon/apple/pecan flavor. It’s a big hit at our house! We even like to eat leftovers for a snack (if we ever happen to have any left!).

    1. Yes, this recipe would likely be a crossover, and it would also need an alternative sweetener to make it THM-friendly. When I’m doing THM I make this for my children and then make something more on-plan (like regular oatmeal) for myself.

    1. I’m so glad everyone liked it, Petra!! And thank you so much for taking the time to let me know—that means so much to me! ♥

  1. Oh, I’m so trying this. I make Baked Oatmeal almost every Sunday Morning – for breakfast!! Especially, in the fall and winter.

    This sounds amazing. One recent time of making baked oatmeal – I chunked fresh peaches on top and that was a real hit… often I’ll just throw on frozen blueberries (right on top) – which are amazing, too!!
