This baked oatmeal will keep well for up to 3 days covered in the fridge. Let it cool completely before storing.
Yes! This oatmeal is freezer friendly. Cut it into squares, freeze solid on a baking sheet and transfer to a container, or, cover and freeze it in the dish it’s baked in. It will keep well for up to 3 months. Thaw it in the fridge overnight.
This apple oatmeal can be enjoyed warm or cold. It’s great for a grab-and-go breakfast right out of the fridge, or reheat it in the oven or microwave to enjoy.
- Don’t skip the baking powder. This helps to keep the oatmeal light and without it it can become quite heavy and stodgy.
- Any milk can be used to make this baked apple oatmeal. Use a plant-based milk like almond or oat for a vegan breakfast, or dairy for a creamier texture.
- If you don’t have maple syrup, honey can also be used to naturally sweeten the oatmeal.
