Maple Apple Baked Oatmeal

I've tried a number of different types of fruit for this recipe, but apple seems to be my family's favorite. I mix the dry and wet ingredients in separate bowls the night before and combine them the next morning when it's time to make breakfast.—Megan Brooks, Saint Lazare, Quebec.

    The best Baked Oatmeal recipe that I've tried yet, and I have tried several! My changes were to use a 9" square pan, used 2t apple pie spice instead of the cinnamon and nutmeg, and instead of maple syrup I used 1/4 cup boiled cider plus 1T brown sugar. I served in shallow bowls, topped with chopped toasted walnuts, with steamed milk. Yep, this one is a keeper! Thanks!

    I am giving it 5 stars; however, family would give it 3 stars. They don't understand that this is NOT a sweet bake. I think this is why I like it. I did up the cinnamon and next time I will even add more. This will make me a good breakfast in the morning.

    Substituted almond milk for the fat free milk, and because I only had a 13x9 pan, I increased the oats to 3 1/2 cups. Great the first day, and also reheated well. Will definitely be making it again with other fruits!

    Baked this up Sunday morning for breakfast. So good! The maple adds just enough sweet to this dish. Add a splash of heavy cream over the top for a touch of indulgence.
