Baked Apple Pie Oatmeal



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 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 packet sweetener of choice
  • 1 tsp corn starch
  • 2 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 point.


While your apple is cooking we can start the oatmeal base, what you will need:
  • 1/2 cup of quick oats
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk (you can use other types of milk but your SmartPoints might change)
  • half a mashed banana (you can use a whole banana if you like, it just bulks up the recipe and adds a bit more of a sweetness)
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • half of the Cooked Apples (set the other half aside to top your baked oatmeal with)
Place the quick oats, unsweetened soy milk, mashed banana and ground cinnamon into a bowl and mix well. Add in half of your cooked apple once it is done and mix together with the oatmeal mixture.  Spray your baking dish with cooking spray of choice and pour the mixture in.

Bake for 20 - 30 minutes in a preheated oven set at 350°F.  Check at the 20 minute mark and give the Centre a touch, if it feels firm it’s done, if it’s not firm just put it in for another 10 minutes. 

Once your oatmeal is done, take it out of the oven and top with the remaining cooked apple.  This makes 1 serving at 4 SmartPoints.

Enjoy!
