Baked Apple Oatmeal

This morning I was searching for some new recipes. Especially for breakfast. We eat the same thing and we are getting pretty bored of it.

This is one recipe that I found at The Enlightened Homemaker. I actually found a bunch of new recipes there that I will be trying out this week - I am SO excited!!

Baked Apple Oatmeal

1 cup rolled oats
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
Pinch of nutmeg
1/4 tsp sea salt
3 T maple syrup
2 peeled and diced or grated apples
1 1/4 C. of almond or coconut milk
Nuts (optional)
Coconut sugar sprinkled on top

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a glass pie plate. Combine all ingredients and mix well. Pour into pie plate. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed. Don't over bake. Remove from oven and allow to cool a bit. Serve with a little milk, whipped cream or yogurt, if desired. 

(I changed the recipe a little bit after asking all of my critics at the breakfast table this morning. They all said that this recipe was a "keeper" but that we should put in more apples, cinnamon and sugar. So, this is my recipe for next time.)

This recipe got 8 stars!! (A star from each critic in my home :)

For the recipe that I tried today go here.
