These apple pie baked oats are the most delicious breakfast you will make this fall! They require minimal ingredients, 30 minutes in the oven and they will leave you satisfied all morning long!
I am finally back with another baked oats recipe! I posted my chocolate chip cookie dough baked oats back in May but I’ve really dropped the ball since! If you follow me on Instagram, then you know that baked oats are my favorite sweet breakfast to make. They are also my most popular and most saved recipes on Instagram. So, I am determined to get as many of my baked oats recipes up on my blog as possible for easier reference. I am starting out with these apple pie baked oats as they are the perfect breakfast to use up those freshly picked apples. Be on the look out for my other baked oats recipes in the coming weeks!
These apple pie baked oats are perfect for those cool fall mornings. These baked oats require the same ingredients needed to make stovetop oats. However, baking the oats rather than cooking them on the stovetop results in a different texture that makes you feel like you are eating dessert for breakfast. Who doesn’t want that?
I love these baked oats because they are:
- Single Serve
- Made with 10 ingredients
- Easy to make
- Easily made gluten free
- Keep you satiated all morning
- Make your kitchen smell amazing

How to make Apple Pie Baked Oats
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a mixing bowl, add banana first and mash with fork. Add rolled oats, milk, maple syrup, chia seeds, vanilla, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg. Mix everything together and allow batter to sit for 10 minutes, to allow oats to absorb some moisture.
While oats are sitting, heat coconut oil in a small sauté pan over medium heat. Add apples, maple syrup and cinnamon and sauté 5-6 minutes, or until apples are tender. Add 3/4 of the sautéed apples to the mixing bowl and fold them in to the batter. Pour batter into a greased ramekin or single serve baking dish. Bake oats for 25-30 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool 5 minutes. Top baked oats with remaining sautéed apples. Add granola, nut butter or maple butter on top as well (optional).
How to meal prep Apple Pie Baked Oats
Muffins: Double the recipe and divide amongst muffin tins. Bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes.
Bars: Triple the recipe (everything except baking powder, do 2 tsp baking powder), pour batter into greased 8×8 inch baking pan. Bake at 400 for 35-40 minutes. Allow to cool 10-15 minutes, then cut into bars.
Storage: Store muffins/bars in air tight containers in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
Oats: Use gluten free oats, if needed
Milk: Can use regular milk or any plant based milk. I used almond milk
Maple Syrup: You can use 1 tbsp honey or monk fruit syrup in place of the maple syrup
Mashed banana: You can use 1/4 cup apple sauce in place of the mashed banana
Protein powder: Feel free to add your favorite protein powder. If you add protein powder, you do not need to let the oats sit to absorb liquid, although it wouldn’t hurt either.
Toppings: other toppings options include granola, pumpkin seeds, nut butter, maple butter or apple butter.
