Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal

In an effort to start my day off with a belly full of healthy foods, I’ve been making lots of oatmeal since the fall.  A heaping bowl of this warm goodness is such a great way to start the day…so comforting.  This recipe is awesome to make on the weekend and then reheat throughout the week.

for the cooked apples, you will need:
2 tbsp. unsalted butter
3 large apples, peeled and sliced (your favorite variety)
½ tsp. ground cinnamon
2 tbsp. brown sugar

for the oatmeal, you will need:
1 cup steel cut oats
2 tbsp. unsalted butter
4 cups hot water
3 cups old-fashioned oats
6 tbsp. brown sugar
¾ tsp. salt
1½ tsp. ground cinnamon
¼ tsp. grated nutmeg
1 cup dried cranberries
½ cup coconut milk
½ cup unsweetened applesauce
¼ cup pure maple syrup
2 tsp. vanilla extract

Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in the apple slices, cinnamon, and sugar. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the apples are golden brown and caramelized, about 15 minutes. Remove from the heat.

Preheat the oven to 350˚ F. Place the steel cut oats in a large bowl with the butter. Pour the hot water over the oats and cover the bowl. Let stand for 20 minutes.

After the steel cut oats have finished soaking, stir in the old fashioned oats, brown sugar, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Stir in the dried fruit. In a bowl or liquid measuring cup, whisk together the milk, apple sauce, maple syrup, and vanilla. Stir the liquid mixture into the oat mixture.

Spread the cooked apples over the bottom of a lightly greased 2 quart-ish baking dish. Pour the oatmeal mixture on top of the apples. Bake uncovered for 35-40 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly before serving.
