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!).
- 1/4 cup melted butter or coconut oil
- 1/2 cup + 1 Tbsp. brown sugar divided
- 2 eggs
- 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1 cup milk
- 2 1/2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
- 2 cups apples peeled and diced
- 1/2 cup pecan pieces
- 2 Tbsp. butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8" x 8" baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
In a large bowl, cream together oil, 1/2 cup brown sugar, eggs, vanilla, salt, and cinnamon.
Add baking powder, milk, and oats.
Stir until oats are well-moistened.
Stir in apples and pecans.
Pour into prepared pan.
Dot with butter and sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon of brown sugar.
Bake uncovered for 30 minutes until lightly browned.
Serve plain, or with milk or yogurt.
Notes: We double the recipe and put in a 9" x 13" pan. Add 10 minutes to cooking time if you double it.
