- 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 + 1/2 cups milk
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons brown sugar, divided
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 4 tablespoons butter, at room temperature, cut into cubes
- Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease a 2-quart oval casserole dish or ramekin with butter or butter spray, then add apples. Toss with cinnamon and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until softened.
- Remove the dish from the oven and add oats, walnuts, and salt. Stir until evenly dispersed.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together brown sugar, milk, and egg. Pour on top of oats, making sure everything is submerged in liquid.
- To make streusel topping, combine flour, 1/4 cup 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.
How to make it creamier: I like this oatmeal as is, but if you prefer a creamier oatmeal, just serve it with a splash of milk right after plating.
How to serve: Serve with yogurt, a drizzle of maple syrup and extra walnuts crushed on top.
How to store: Allow oatmeal to cool completely, then cover and store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. You can also scoop it into individual portions and store in airtight containers or freezer bags in the freezer for up to 3 months.
