Make a pan of this easy baked oatmeal on the weekend and reheat leftovers for a quick breakfast throughout the week. Pears are a great substitute for apples. It also makes a delicious and filling afternoon snack.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with cooking spray.
In a large bowl combine oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt. In a medium bowl combine milk, eggs, vanilla, and apple sauce. Pour wet ingredients over dry and stir until combined.
Add peanut butter and mix again. Add diced apples and mix to combine one last time. Pour oat mixture into prepared pan and bake for about 35-40 minutes, until lightly brown on top and set.
Remove from oven and serve with a splash of additional milk, a sprinkle of raisins, and some more peanut butter, if desired. Or top with a dollop of plain or vanilla yogurt.
