apple cinnamon baked oatmeal - a recipe

This baked oatmeal dish has become a breakfast favorite at my house.
I love it because it can be prepared the night before and then heated as needed.  And it's so tasty!
It can also last for up to a week in the fridge, if it doesn't get gobbled up before then!!

Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal
4c  rolled oats
2tsp baking powder
1/2tsp sea salt
4c diced apples
1c liquid egg whites or 8 egg whites
4c unsweetened almond milk
2tsp vanilla essence
2tsp ground cinnamon
2/3c xylitol

Grease and line a large casserole dish.
Preheat oven 160degC.
In a large bowl, add all ingredients and stir until combined.
Pour into casserole dish and bake for 1 1/2 hours or until set and slightly browned around the edges.

Makes approx 12, 1 cup serves.

For all you Trim Healthy Mamas, this baked oatmeal is a THM E.
Serve with a dollop of 0% Greek yoghurt, sweetened with your favorite plan approved sweetener.
I use pure stevia drops or stevia blend.

This recipe works just as well with carton liquid egg whites as with whole eggs separated.  The only thing with using fresh eggs for the whites, is what to do with all the yolks?  There is only so much mayonnaise and lemon curd I can make!  I have come up with another recipe to use all the yolks left over from this baked oatmeal, Lemon Pudding.  Click through and give it a try.

Happy baking!


  1. Does this really bake for 90 minutes?

  2. Does this really bake for 90 minutes?

  3. Yes, this does take one and a half hours to bake. The temperature is 160 deg C and it is a dense cake so it takes long, slow cooking to bake through.

  4. is that 325 F -- I'm not even sure what my oven is set for, C or F?

    1. Yes that is the correct temp conversion. As to weather your oven is F or C, you will be able to tell on the temp dial of your oven. A Celsius oven will go up to about 230degC whereas on a F oven, the numbers will be much higher.

  5. Will this freeze?

    1. Yes, I freeze mine in individual serves.

  6. What size is a “large” casserole??


I love it when you comment!!
