Baked Apple Pie Oatmeal

It’s time for a new breakfast recipe because – you know – there haven’t been 1000 of those on here lately. At all.

Why am I getting so creative with breakfast lately and not with my other meals? *shakes head* No idea. Breakfast has always been my favourite meal but lately it’s getting cray cray how much I love it.

Peeps, it’s still a long weekend here in Canada as we celebrate Canada Day (otherwise known as my birthday, but I stopped trying to compete with the country’s birthday a long time ago). As it fell on a Sunday this year, today is our day off work!

I had a great birthday yesterday and the fun is continuing today…and will continue this weekend too. I like to drag things out ;). However I will be back tomorrow with a round-up post of pictures from my trip to Seattle with my bestie this weekend! It was a rockin’ good time (here’s us in the car during a 1-hour border line-up!):

Just like with our Thanksgiving (which falls in October) we have our mid-year long weekend before yours (July 4th is a-comin’ soon though!) so we get over our excitement and get back into it and then you guys still have yours to look forward to! I just choose to suddenly become an honorary American as soon as Canada Day is over and the holiday is suddenly prolonged…good strategy, right?

It’s what makes living on the west coast so great – things like Christmas Day and New Year’s Day seem to last longer because the whole world has celebrated them by the time we get around to it. Weird how that works.

In the meantime, though, savour yet another breakfast recipe to add into your rotation…Baked Apple Pie Oatmeal…or BAPO? How about Baked Apple Pie Protein Oatmeal? BAPPO? (‘Cause you know there’s always protein in there if I can help it!).

(Serving suggestion: I break mine up and serve it with a couple of tablespoons of coconut milk creamer poured on top…super good!)

Eat up and enjoy…!

Anna’s Baked Apple Pie Oatmeal (BAPO!)

INGREDIENTS (serves 1):

1/3 cup oats
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk (or soy, rice, coconut or other milk of choice)
1/3 scoop vanilla protein powder (about 1.5 tbsp)
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 apple, diced
2 tbsp unsweetened applesauce
1 egg white (2 tbsp)
1 pinch salt
Stevia if needed (I didn’t use any)
More milk for serving (optional)


1. Mix all ingredients together and pour into a greased baking dish.

2. Bake at 350 F for 30 minutes. Eat straight from the dish or serve as per my suggestion in the image above and below. Enjoy!

Note: You can microwave the cinnamon with the diced apple before combining it if you like your apple extra soft. Or just dice your apples extra small so they cook really well!

  1. you are the queen of protein-packed treats!

  2. Loving this! I am so impatient and never tried baked oats, I could make them night before though and just re-heat them!

    Happy Monday! ❤

    • I always make it the night before and heat it up the morning of! I am WAY too hungry in the mornings to wait for baked oatmeal, lol! This also makes a great nighttime snack, because of the protein 🙂

  3. This is exactly what I’ve been craving lately 🙂 Nothing like apple pie for breakfast!

  4. That looks flipping awesome!!! Too bad it’s 457,000 degrees outside and it’s too hot to eat warm! I bet it’ll be just as good cold though!

  5. Happy birthday, Anna! Mmm, apple pie! Love this idea cause you get the flavor without having to make a whole pie! This looks so so good, I bet it would be amazing with some ice cream for a dessert!

  6. Emily Butler says:

    I am the same way when it comes to creating breakfast recipes! I always like to add 1-2 egg whites to my oats as well!

  7. Yum that apple pie looks so good and healthy!!

  8. I know what you mean about loving breakfast…it’s my favourite meal too!!! This looks super delish 🙂 And happy birthday for yesterday!!! Can’t wait for the pics

  9. I need to try baked oatmeal! It looks amazing! I try not to eat a lot of grains but I will definitely be making an exception for this!

  10. I swear…when I think of protein-packed meals, I automatically think of your recipes! They always look so delicious and this one is no exception. I haven’t made baked oatmeal in months- I miss it! Thanks for sharing the recipe. (:

    • Thanks Emily, that means so much! So happy you’re back to blogging now! We missed you in the blogosphere!! Btw, I just wrote on Thursday about Bunheads – so glad to see you wrote about it too! Going to read now 🙂

  11. that oatmeal looks delicious. I must pin!

  12. Oh my gosh that looks incredible! So, so tasty and warming – the perfect breakfast for when the weather is raining and rubbish. Thanks for posting!

  13. Hey! I just found your blog through Sara at “my less serious life” (we were mentioned together in a tweet) and I’m so glad I did! I’m a fellow Canadian and we share so many similarities in our approach to life. I look forward to following you 🙂

  14. Ah! Thanks for this! I’ve been in the mood for an apple pie oatmeal thing for like 3 weeks 🙂

  15. this looks great! I’ve got a slight oatmeal obsession!!! So this will be tried, very very soon 🙂

  16. I love the idea of this and I love oatmeal! This is a great way to satisfy the sweet tooth too!


  1. […] first idea was to make a baked banana bread protein oatmeal, like the baked apple pie oatmeal I posted last week. Copyright to Anna […]
