Baked Apple Cinnamon Steel Cut Oats are a delicious way to start your morning.
One of my favorites ways to enjoy breakfast is a delicious baked oatmeal. I like to serve it topped with warm milk, which happens to be fabulous.
My kids know that I love Baked Oatmeal, so maybe they decided to love it too? I have super picky eats, but they all love baked oatmeal. It’s also a great grain to get into them too, so it is a win-win.
One thing in particular that I absolutely love about these Baked Oats is that my picky eaters LOVE these and inside I know they are getting a bowl full of good nutrients.
We make a variety of flavors but so far this Baked Apple Cinnamon is my favorite. I actually have a weird allergy that means I can’t eat any raw fruit or veggies. It’s sad, isn’t it? Literally if I bite into an apple or banana, my mouth breaks out.
Isn’t that odd? I was told it’s an Oral Food Allergy. I just thought something was very wrong with me, but apparently it’s a legit food allergy. When it’s baked though, it breaks down things inside it and suddenly, I can eat it.
I would love to eat raw fruit, so I hate it really but I do enjoy a variety of baked fruit such as this baked oatmeal. The flavors combined provide for a delicious explosion in your mouth. Yes, explosion…it’s that good.
This dish also has currants in it, similar to raisins. If you can’t find currants, just use raisins and it will work the same way.
Now, are you ready to enjoy this Baked Apple Cinnamon Steel Cut Oats? I think I’ll be making more tomorrow because just writing this makes me crave it all over again.
