Description

Cinnamon and apple are a perfect pair, and when you combine them with warm, creamy oatmeal, well — you won’t be able to stop eating this cinnamon apple baked oatmeal! Plus, the streusel-like topping takes it to a whole new level!

Ingredients

For the oatmeal:

  • 1 tablespoon butter or butter spray
  • 2 Gala apples, peeled and cut into ½-inch cubes 
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon 
  • 1 cup quick oats 
  • 1/3 cup walnuts, crushed
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 and 1/2 cups fat-free milk
  • 1 egg

Streusel topping:

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons brown sugar, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons butter, room temperature, cut into cubes

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease a 2 qt. ramekin with butter or butter spray, then add apples. Toss with cinnamon and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until softened. 
  2. Remove the dish from the oven and add oats, walnuts, and salt. Stir until evenly dispersed. 
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together brown sugar, milk, and egg. Pour on top of oatmeal, making sure everything is submerged in liquid.
  4. To make streusel topping, combine flour, ¼ cup of brown sugar, salt, and butter in a small bowl. Use your hands to gently work the ingredients together, crumbling the butter into pea-sized pieces and working quickly so that it doesn’t melt. Sprinkle as much of the streusel as you’d like on top of the oatmeal, then bake for 20-25 minutes, or until most of the liquid as been absorbed. Sprinkle the remaining 2 tablespoons brown sugar on top, then place under the broiler for just a couple minutes until the sugar has melted. Watch carefully so it doesn’t burn. Serve hot as is or with a splash of milk.
