  • 1 small apple, grated (fine to leave skin on)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce (keep a pack of the individual serving cups on hand–they are the perfect size)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup or honey
  • 1 1/4 cups milk (I use non-fat, any kind would work)
  • 3 cups old-fashioned oats (use certified gluten-free oats if necessary)
  • 1/4 cup melted Smart Balance Original Buttery Spread (butter, coconut oil, and canola oil work well, too)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  1. Combine all ingredients except the oats and brown sugar in a large bowl
  2. Add oats and mix well.Transfer mixture to a buttered baking dish
  3. (You may use a 9-inch pie plate or an 9-inch square pan–or really any 2-quart baking dish–depending on how thick you would like your oatmeal
  4. A 10-inch cast iron skillet works well, too.) Cover and refrigerate overnight or for at least 4 hours.When ready to bake, let the baking dish sit on the counter while the oven pre-heats to 375 degrees
  5. Uncover the oatmeal and bake for 27-30 minutes or until just firm in the center
  6. Remove oatmeal from oven, set oven to broil, and sprinkle brown sugar over top of oatmeal
  7. Broil for a minute, watching very closely, or until the topping is melted and lightly browned.May serve with warmed milk, slivered almonds, chopped walnuts or pecans, and sliced bananas, if desired
  8. My kids eat it plain, like a muffin; I load it up
  9. Cover and store leftovers in the refrigerator
  10. May reheat gently in the microwave.
