Baked Apple Pie Oatmeal - 4 SmartPoints

There's nothing better than having dessert for breakfast, especially if it reminds you of Apple Pie.

First lets make the Cooked Apple, you will need:

  • 1 medium apple diced (your choice if you peel it or not)
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 packet sweetener of choice
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp of water
Place all ingredient into a microwave safe container, mix well and then cover.  Set your microwave to 2 1/2 minutes, stirring the apple mixture at the half way mark.

While your apple is cooking we can start the oatmeal base, what you will need:

  • 1/2 cup of quick oats
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk (unsweetened cashew milk work as well but other milk could alter the SmartPoints value)
  • half  a mashed banana
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • half of the Cooked Apples (set the other half aside to top your baked oatmeal with)
Place the quick oats, unsweetened almond milk, mashed banana and ground cinnamon into a bowl and mix well. Add in half of your Cooked Apple once it's done and mix the oatmeal mixture and apple together.  Spray your baking dish with cooking spray of choice and pour the mixture in.

Bake for 15 minutes in a preheated oven set at 380°F.

Once your oatmeal is done, take it out of the oven and top with the remaining Cooked Apple.
