We have been LOVING baked oatmeals lately on our homestead.

How Do I Make This Vegan Baked Oatmeal?

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees, and grease a 13×9 baking dish.
  2. Mix the oatmeal: in a large bowl, combine 1 of the chopped apples, 3 cups of rolled oats, cinnamon, the almond milk, 1/4 cup of brown sugar, and the vanilla extract.  Stir well and add to the greased baking dish.
  3. Make the filling: in a saucepan, heat a small pad of the butter until melted, and sautee 2 of the apples with the blueberries and pour on top of the oatmeal in the baking dish.
  4. Add the crumble: in a small bowl, combine the remaining 1/2 cup of rolled oats, 1/4 flour, 1/2 sticks butter, pinch of salt, and 1/2 cup brown sugar.  Mix well and top the apple blue berry mixture with the crumble.
  5. Bake the oatmeal for 45 minutes until the top begins to turn golden brown.  Carefully remove from oven and drizzle with maple syrup, raw honey, or a splash of almond milk.

This recipe is super simple to make ahead or meal prep for the week!  I have been baking a big dish of this on Monday mornings to enjoy throughout the whole week.  You can even meal prep it Sunday night, cover and refrigerate, and then bake it Monday morning.
