Slices of these apple-pie baked oats make a great snack or midday pick-me-up, with an added energy boost coming from vanilla protein powder. If you individually wrap the slices, they make an excellent grab-and-go breakfast. Servings may also be reheated in a toaster oven or microwave.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Coat a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Melt butter in a 10-inch skillet over medium-low heat. Add sliced apples and cook, stirring, until well coated, 1 to 2 minutes. Add cinnamon; cook, stirring, until the cinnamon is toasted and fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Add brown sugar; cook, stirring frequently, until the apples are soft, 3 to 5 minutes.

  • Whisk milk and eggs in a large bowl. Stir in oats, protein powder, chia seeds and baking powder. Add the apple mixture and stir to combine.

  • Transfer the batter to the prepared baking dish, spreading it evenly. Bake until golden brown on the edges, 30 to 35 minutes. Place the pan on a wire rack to cool slightly, about 10 minutes, before cutting into 6 slices. Top each serving with a dollop of yogurt and/or a drizzle of maple syrup, if desired.

To make ahead

Wrap cooled slices and refrigerate for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
