Apple pie oatmeal

This Apple pie oatmeal is one of my kids favorite. I actually double the batch every time I make it so that we can have it for longer periods of time. Healthy, gluten free and vegan.

I have been making oatmeal for the past week and I can’t get enough. I made the dark chocolate and peanut butter version a few days ago that was awesome. This one sure does not stay behind. According to my 6 year old son, he would not know which one to pick.

I guess I recommend you make both so that you can decide for yourself :-)

I find that the oatmeal mixture may turn a bit dry after it sits for a little while, just don’t be afraid to add more milk if you like.

I store the left over in the fridge for the next mornings to comes. I just add a little extra bit of milk and microwave for 1 minute or so.

You can also served this apple pie oatmeal with any dried fruits or nuts. It will complement it really well. If you opt for adding some nuts it will add some extra healthy fats to your breakfast.

Apple pie oatmeal

Miryam's original recipe

Yield: 4-6 servings

Total Time: 10 minutes


2 1/4 cups old fashioned rolled oats, gluten free
3 1/4 cups almond milk, any other milk will work too
3 tbsp maple syrup
2 tbsp butter, or coconut oil
2 teaspoons cinnamon, more if you like
3-4 medium apples, chopped
4 tbsp flax seed meal, optional, wheat germ or oat bran will also work well


Place oatmeal, soy milk and 2 tablespoons of sugar in a heavy saucepan and cook over medium to high heat, stirring frequently until it boils. Reduce heat and simmer for 5-10 minutes, or until milk has been absorbed and the oats have softened.

On a skillet place apples, 1 tablespoon of maple syrup, cinnamon and butter. Cook over medium heat stirring frequently until apples have soften up a bit, it takes about 6-7 minutes.

Mix apples with oatmeal and serve. You can add some nuts or dry fruit which complements this oatmeal really well. You may need a bit more milk to serve as well.

I have not tried making this in a microwave but I am sure it will also work well as long as you stir in between.

  4. loving this. bookmarked

  5. Que buenísima pinta tiene y que fotos tan sugerentes.


  6. We eat oatmeal for breakfast all most every morning. I’ve been looking for ways to make it more interesting. I’ll have to add this apple pie version to the mix. I was also thinking a carrot cake version with shredded carrots, coconut milk, toasted pecans and maybe raisins!

    Thanks for the recipe!

  7. How do you create the nutritional values? And where do you get the information for them? Let me know!

  8. Elizabeth,

    I go to

    Thanks for visiting my blog!!

  9. Looks yummy. Is the ‘sugar’ in the directions actually the maple syrup?

  10. Do you think it’s possible to freeze portions, as its only me and saves making it daily? Or how long will it be ok to leave in the fridge?
    Love this recipe, just made a big batch. May have to eat it all

  11. Looks amazing, but sugar is mentioned like three times and we are calling for maple syrup . Can you please update with promotions. Also can we all search to makes this less glycemic a recipe? 

  12. The flax seed meal is listed in the ingredients but not the directions.

  13. Miryam, This sound positively lovely and I will try it out on a grandchild who resist eating breakfast. I have made similar concoctions but have sauteed the fruit in the same pan with the oats or farina. This makes it a one pan affair and easier to clean up before heading to work.
