How to make these baked oats:

You’ll start by blending old-fashioned oats with milk, eggs, baking powder, and spices in your blender until smooth. We know: this is definitely a different oatmeal preparation! Trust the process.

Pour the batter you’ve made into a greased baking dish. Then you’ll dice a peeled and cored Cosmic Crisp® Apple and top the raw batter with the apples. Bake until the oats are golden brown, let cool, then cut into squares and serve or refrigerate for breakfast on the go later in the week. 

This breakfast is naturally gluten-free and a hit with the kiddos, too, so it will work for just about anyone you happen to be cooking for. We love a meal that will truly serve everyone! Try it for yourself and don’t forget to come back and leave us a review.
