I love apple season! We did a family trip to the orchard for some apple picking a few weeks ago and since then I’ve been making apple everything – applesauce, buttermilk custard apple pie, and this oatmeal were the first few kitchen projects post-trip.
This oatmeal was great – and just screams fall to me!
Peanut Butter Apple Baked Oatmeal
(from Two Peas and Their Pod)
2 cups old fashioned oats
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 3/4 cups milk
3 Tbsp. unsweetened applesauce
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
2 apples, diced
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and grease an 8×8 baking dish.
In a large bowl, stir together the oats, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. In another bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, applesauce and vanilla. Pour the liquid ingredients into the oats and stir to combine.
Add in the peanut butter and mix until well combined. Fold in apples.
Bake for 35 minutes, or until set and golden. Let cool for a few minutes before serving.
