Apple-Pie Baked Oats


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.

Total Time:
1 hr


  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 2 large firm sweet apples, such as Honeycrisp, thinly sliced

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ¼ cup brown sugar

  • 2 cups whole milk

  • 2 large eggs

  • 3 cups rolled oats

  • 3 tablespoons vanilla protein powder, such as BioSteel

  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • Plain Greek yogurt & pure maple syrup for serving


  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
