Imagine this - the smell of toasted pecans, sweet Honeycrisp apples, nutmeg and cinnamon wafting through the kitchen.
Enjoy this easy to make apple cinnamon oatmeal bake any day of the week.
My son is a huge fan of apple crisp. This breakfast casserole allows him to enjoy his favorite dessert for breakfast. While it's similar to my Honeycrisp apple crisp recipe it's heartier.
It's packed with protein and healthy carbs. No guilt eating this for breakfast!
I chose this bake to serve a crowd of hungry swimmers recently. I served this recipe alongside my hash brown egg bake.
I needed a healthy recipe that was packed with protein and healthy carbs. This was the perfect choice.
This oatmeal bake is packed with healthy oats, sweet chunks of apple, plump juicy raisins and toasted pecans.
This breakfast bake uses everyday pantry staples. I always have oats and fresh apples on hand. So many nuts and dried fruits can be substituted for the pecans and raisins if you need to make a switch.
It's the perfect casserole to serve on a busy weekend or holiday morning. It can be made the night before and baked or reheated in the morning.
It's simply a matter of adding the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, pouring it into a casserole pan and baking for about 45 minutes. I like to sprinkle a few extra raisins and chopped pecans on top before serving.
