This apple cinnamon baked oatmeal is a healthy, delicious way to start your day. Oats are a nutritious whole grain to include at breakfast time. High in fiber and several essential nutrients, a serving of oatmeal includes 5 grams of protein. Steel cut oats, rolled (or old fashioned) oats, and quick-cooking oats are all healthy whole grain options with similar nutrient profiles. I typically use rolled oats for most of my oatmeal recipes, but steel cut oats are a nice alternative on occasion.
This baked oatmeal is an easy, make-ahead recipe. You can put it together in the evening, and all you have to do in the morning is pop it in the oven. The house will smell amazing while this is baking. If you have kids who are sluggish to get out of bed, this aroma just may do the trick.
