Baked oatmeal is a special treat for breakfast and perfectly acceptable to eat at any and all hours of the day including for dessert!
Cubes of apple laced with peanut butter dominate every bite of this thick and creamy oatmeal with crunchy walnuts and warm notes of brown sugar and cinnamon.
Apples love peanut butter. In case you didn’t know. Apples and peanut butter? They both love oats. Win-win.
A sudden craving for oatmeal cookies came over me as I was whipping these up! The craving subsided after eating one of these cute little crocks full of soft oatmeal slightly reminiscent of a cookie.
The recipe as written is not overly sweet, if you like your oatmeal on the sweeter side bump up the sugar a little and add more milk so they won’t be too dry.
A spoon of jelly dolloped over the top or a drizzle of maple syrup can only make them better.
