This weekend I fully embraced fall.

I bought my first can of pumpkin, baked up my first pumpkin loaf, and made my first baked oatmeal of the season. Fall, bring it on!

Spring and summer I’m more of a cold breakfast eater – yogurt and granola or overnight oats are the usual suspects. But come fall, I crave warmer and heartier meals and baked oatmeal is the perfect fall tummy pleaser.

My go-to fall baked oatmeal has to be our pumpkin variety. Yes, I jump on the pumpkin bandwagon come fall and am proud of it! But I wanted something a little different and this apple and peanut butter variety fit the bill. It has the same chewy texture, but in place of the pumpkin and cranberries we have apples and cinnamon. And the addition of a cup of peanut butter adds extra protein and healthy fats to help keep you full all morning long.

My favourite part is that one batch makes about 12 servings! Enough for all your breakfasts during the week and even some snacks too. Just add a splash of milk to freshen it up and pop it in the microwave for about 45 seconds. I also happen to enjoy it cold or room temperature so give that a try too.

So embrace fall with me and bake up a batch of apple and peanut butter oatmeal.

      • Hi Nela,
        So glad you liked it! You could substitute any other nut butter – almond butter would be delicious. You could also use sunflower butter.
