I love apple pie spices, so I did 2 tsp of cinnamon and 2 tsp of apple pie spice. I’m also going to experiment with cutting the apples a little smaller, and going to line the baking pan with parchment so that I can easy put it in a cutting board to potion.
Sounds amazing 😎
Love that ingredients are in grams. Love the simplicity. Love the macros. Love the easy instructions. Love the “normal” pantry ingredients. (no weird sweeteners, natural or artificial and I tend to avoid).
Seriously bud, great job. Keep it up and I think the youtube channel will take off
thank you so much 😎
You mentioned that you use the Optimum Nutrition brand of protein powder but which vanilla flavor do you get. Is it the Vanilla ice cream or french vanilla creme?
It shouldn’t make a difference. I have used both
Just a heads up for anyone else like me who really doesn’t know how to cook. Step 3 and 4 on For the oatmeal bake are swapped. Mix wet and dry ingredients before placing in baking tray.
Whoops, you’re right. Thanks for the note ill change it
Hello. Can i use oat flour rather than rolled oats? Because that is the only thing i have in my pantry. And if im going to substitute the protein powder with flour and sugar, how much would it be? Thanks
I would not recommend that. Oat flour on it’s own tends to get a bit gummy when baked. As far as your second question, I’m not sure exactly as I have never tested but I would imagine about the same amount of flour plus 20-30g of sugar.
Pretty good! I took half the oats and blended them because I prefer my baked oatmeal to be more of a cake or bread. I also chopped the apples into little cubes because I didn’t think I’d love the slices. I also added way more cinnamon and some pumpkin spice. The base recipe is perfect Next time I’m going to add in whipped egg whites to up the volume/ protein! Thanks Josh!
I dislike cooked oatmeal but this stuff is great. First batch was a bit bland but I added 1 tsp of apple pie spice to the wet ingredients and 1 tsp to the dry ingredients made a night and day difference. This is going to be my go to breakfast till my diet is over. Probably a but after as well.
glad you enjoyed it 😎
This was so delicious and so easy to make. Definitely plan on trying the other baked oatmeal recipes. I love that this uses “real” butter and sugar in a moderate amount. The macros are still friendly to my goals but it feels more satisfying to cook/eat with the real deals. Sugar substitutes are fine but don’t completely act like sugar in cooking/baking, some have odd tastes and some recipes are developed with a specific substitute in mind that I have a hard time finding in my small grocery store! Freezes well. This is great hot or cold, if you want to make it a little extra special, warm it up in the microwave and about 1/4 cup of milk of your choice.
thank you 😎😎😎
So delicious! I am curious.. should we refrigerate the portions until ready to eat?
yes, i keep it in the fridge
I have been looking for a long time for something that can hold me over until lunch, this is the first breakfast that has actually done so. And it tastes great! Thanks so much, really looking forward to trying all the others.
thank you, glad you enjoyed it 😎
If I don’t have protein powder, do you suggest, I add something else instead?
I would do flour and sugar
How much flour and sugar to replace the protein powder?
I love your recipes! I am a single dad and do a lot of prep for my daughter who is gluten and dairy free, so we are a big fan of some of the snack city dishes. I see some of your recipes call for protein powder, which I don’t plan to give to her since she gets enough protein, plus they almost always contain dairy so she cannot have them. Is there anything you’d recommend in place? I was thinking maybe something like gluten free flour and sugar, or something similar. Thanks in advance, and keep up the great work! Your recipes are so simple and amazing, just what I need!!!
so glad to hear that thank you
Are there other alternatives to the protein powder that still allows you to get the same amout of protein ?
No, protein powder is very unique
Reccomendation on how long to reheat in the microwave and how long it will keep in the fridge?
I would reheat it until it is hot. That could be 30s or 2 minutes depending on your microwave. And I wouldn’t go more than 6 days in the fridge.
Can I use Erythritol instead of brown sugar?
that’s probably fine
I made this and didn’t like it as much as the banana chocolate chip oatmeal bake so I made some modifications.
I swapped out the apples for 400g unsweetened apple sauce, added ground nutmeg and cloves, doubled the protein powder, and added an additional 1/4 cup of milk. I also swapped out the sugar for 2 tbsp honey and reduced the butter to 1 tbsp.
Finally, I diced a granny smith apple with the skin on and tossed it into the mix similar to the chocolate chips in the banana recipe.
My glass baking pan is smaller so I have to cook longer – about 45-50 minutes and the top is golden brown and crispy.
Basically I made the banana oatmeal recipe but with extra protein and subbed out the mashed banana for apple sauce and the chips for diced apple. I nailed it and I think it’s worth trying out.
Great recipe, but I think a little salt would really help to bring out some of the flavors!
Some people have mentioned the same thing. I have tried both ways and I don’t think it makes a difference at all
Really delicious. I replace the vanilla with chocolate protein powder to give it a chocolate taste. How easy is it to replace the apple with orange and chocolate chip?
Youd want to use mandarin oranges or peel away any of the membrane on regular oranges otherwise it would be tough.
Great, I microwaved it in the morning with a little peanut butter. OMG perfect, finally staying on track with great recipes!
Love the recipe!!! Thank you for sharing.
Have you ever made these ahead of time and frozen them? If so how do you recommend storage and reheating or eating once defrosted?
Easy to make, but I used 2 green (golden delicious) apples, 1 cup oat milk, 1 egg, 1/2 tsp baking powder and layered in nutmeg, cinnamon,ground ginger, ground green cardamom, honey and lemongrass for the sweetness instead of sugar – along with some diet protein powder. Cooked the apples in coconut oil and some unsalted butter.
I sliced the pie into 35-40 g pieces as I try to keep my breakfast around 50g. The oats I used were rolled but I’ll soak it in a spice/milk mixture for 1-2 hours (overnight if I’m lazy) as the oats I used were still a little tough after the 35 min bake. I’ll then cook the apple slices in that mixture. I also want to use dates/raisins and/or nut shavings next time as I feel it will compliment the ingredients well.
Shot for the recipe!
Would vanilla casein work for this?
Love this. Stumbled across your videos on YouTube by accident and you’ve been feeding me ever since. Only change I made was finely dicing the apples before adding them to the oats (my preference only). Perfect meal for the mornings
This has been a firm favourite in our house, it doesn’t last long, I cut it in to 10 pieces and serve with vanilla yoghurt and the kids love it!
