This apple pie baked oatmeal bars are so aromatic and delicious! With all the traditional flavors of an apple pie but much faster to prepare and without any refined sugars. Do you like oatmeal? Then you should give this a try and you can thank me later. You can cut into pieces as it is not crumbly, so it is perfect for little fingers. So, this dish is perfect for quick breakfast on-the-go or snack! And if you are anything like me and you crave apple pie, then this recipe is much healthier and easier too. So lets get into baking everyone!

What you will need
  • Oats. You need to use the rolled oats version on this recipe. Quick oats or oat flour will not work.
  • Eggs. I always buy pasture-raised organic eggs as I feel like the farm treats the chickens the way that they should be treated. They have a much better nutrition profile too.
  • Nuts. I used half almonds and half walnuts. But you can use any nuts that you like. If you serve this to little kids make sure that you blend the nuts into flour consistency.
  • Apples. You can use any variety that you want. But I feel like a sweeter apple like fuji or honeycrisp will be best of this recipe. So, I used fuji.
  • Milk. I used one cup coconut cream and two cups whole milk because this is what I had on hand and it turned out perfect. But you could use three cups of your milk of choice.
  • Raw honey.
  • Raisins. You can use any other dried fruit such as cranberries, cherries, apricots etc.
  • Pantry staples. Pumpkin spice and baking powder. If you don’t have or you don’t like pumpkin spice, feel free to just use Ceylan cinnamon.
How I served it

You know by now how much Panos loves his eco-friendly bamboo plates. So I served a piece of the apple pie baked oatmeal along with a serving of yogurt. And of course, I added some raspberries and kiwis, which I cut with my veggie cutters into cute little flowers. As I always say “anything cut with a veggie cutter tastes better”. So, if you have a toddler/kid who doesn’t like fruits and vegetables, give this a try and you would be impressed!

How to store it
  • You can serve this almost right away from the oven which will be warm and delicious.
  • Once it cools down you can cut in pieces and save in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. I would suggest to warm it up before you serve as I feel like the aroma from the spices are more intense.
  • Or you can freeze in freezer bags up to three months. Just make sure that you freeze the pieces flat so it would be easier when you want to take one out for a quick snack.
