Baked Apple Pie Oatmeal


With the weather being less than pleasant the past few days I have been constantly craving hot drinks, soups and oatmeal.  So the other day I was really wanting a hot, filling meal that would also have a little sweetness to it.  After a quick look in the pantry the idea for apple pie oatmeal was born.  This is a really simple quick meal to bake up and would be perfect for a breakfast get together, or you could just eat it for 4 meals in a row like I did :)

Baked Apple Pie Oatmeal
2 apples, peeled cored and chopped
1 3/4 c.  Irish oats
1/2 c. apple cider
3/4 c. skim milk
1 tbs melted butter
1 egg
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/3 c. honey
brown sugar for topping

Grease a baking dish and preheat the oven to 375.  Peel, core and chop your apples.
Add the oats, apples and spices and mix.  Add the honey to the oat mixture.

In a measuring cup or bowl stir together milk, cider and egg.  Add to oatmeal mixture and stir well.  Add the melted butter.  Sprinkle a few spoonfuls of brown sugar over the top. Cover and bake for 30-40 minutes. Enjoy with a scoop of Greek yogurt and a drizzle of honey.  You can store the leftovers in the fridge as this recipe makes enough for 4.  Weight Watchers pts. 8
