Baked Apple Pie Protein Oatmeal

4 Pieces293 cals

Apple crisp, apple fritters, apple doughnuts, apple cider vinegar…apple is everywhere right now! To keep with that trend, we’re gonna make some Baked Apple Pie Oatmeal! It tastes just as good as an apple pie, it’s way healthier, and it only takes a few minutes to prep.

Baked Oatmeal

Start with a large bowl and into it add 2 chopped up apples, whatever kind you prefer.

You could also peel them but I prefer not to for the extra fiber alone in this apple pie oatmeal!

Add those into your bowl followed by 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, 2 tablespoons of a brown sugar substitute, 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, and 1/4 teaspoon of xanthan gum.

Lightly mix those up until your pieces have a nice a coat on them.

You want every bite of your apple piece oatmeal to taste just as good as the last one so that nice coat is important!

Take out another large bowl and add into that one 2 large whole eggs, 8 ounces of unsweetened apple sauce, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, 1 1/2 cups of rolled oats, 2 scoops of vanilla protein powder, 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk, 2 tablespoons of a brown sugar substitute, 3/4 teaspoon of baking powder, and a 1/4 teaspoon of salt.

Mix until smooth and then take out a large baking dish, I like a casserole dish for this one.

Spread your apple mix evenly into the bottom of it and pour your other mix on top.

Throw your future baked apple pie oatmeal in the oven on 375F/190C for around 40 minutes.

There is your Baked Apple Pie Protein Oatmeal recipe, the perfect little dessert for this time of the year!

    I’ve been making this recipe for years. One of my favorites. I only had one apple and added banana. It was so good I tried using three small bananas only. I added some chopped pecans and whole pecans on top to toast. 2 tbs maple syrup. It was absolutely delicious.

    Love this one.
    Question. If I half the recipe in a smaller baking dish would the baking time or temperature change?
    Thanks again.

      Glad you like it Joe! I’d check it after 20-25 minutes, same temp.

    What is the point of the xanthan gum???

    • Derek Howes on August 22, 2022 at 7:38 pm

      Helps keep everything together!

    This tastes great! I’ve made it twice. The first time I forgot to add the liquid and they still tasted good. More like an oatmeal bar. The second time I doubled the amount of apples and added an extra scoop of protein powder (I remembered the liquid this time). Tasted very good!!

    • Derek Howes on September 29, 2021 at 6:08 pm

      Awesome Jen! This is one of my favorite recipes this time of the year, can’t wait to make it again (thanks for the reminder!).

    This recipe is amazing! I was super impressed with how it came out, it’s the perfect apple pie substitute. I can not wait to try it in other flavors and look into your other recipes!

    • Derek Howes on August 27, 2021 at 11:26 am

      Glad you liked it and hope you like everything else you try Kara!

    LOVE this recipe. Instead of two large eggs I used 1 large egg and 50 grams of egg makers. I also mixed everything together in one bowl, then baked it. It turned out absolutely perfect. This recipe is my new breakfast staple.

    • Derek Howes on January 26, 2021 at 7:07 pm

      Love that Elise! Thanks for the feedback – one of my favorites.

    I’ve made this as listed twice now, and it was great both times. I also modified the recipe and used bananas and banana yogurt to replace the apples and applesauce for a banana oatmeal protein bake! Will do strawberries and peaches when they are in season too. Thanks for the great recipe Derek!

    This was really delicious. I’m used to baked high-protein goods being dry, but this was moist and had a wonderful slight custard quality to it. I ate half of it immediately and had to fight myself not to eat more. Definitely a keeper!
