This is perfect for a crisp fall morning. You’ll need to make this since it took three batches to get it right. First batch, I tried to make vegan and the coconut oil over powered all other flavors so butter it is. The second batch, I tried with no refined sugar and it was way too bland. Oatmeal just needs brown sugar to shine. Third batch is the winner!
Preheat oven to 325 and spray baking dish with non stick spray.
2 cups of old fashioned oats
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 tablespoon of cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 cup of applesauce or one pouch
2 cups of milk or milk alternative
1 teaspoon of vanilla
2 tablespoons of melted butter
1 Apple- diced
Combine dry ingredients in a medium sized bowl. Mix wet ingredients expect for butter and pour over dry ingredients. Stir and let them sit for 10 minutes while you clean up and chop your apple. Added melted butter to mixture. Place diced apples in bottom of dish and pour mixture over them and stir. Bake at 325 for 40 minutes.
