Vegan caramel apple baked oatmeal is dense, rich, and full of your favorite fall caramel apple flavors! Made with just a few simple, healthy ingredients and fruit sweetened.
Alright guys, I’m holding out on the pumpkin recipes until October, but just get ready cause the pumpkin floodgates are about to OPEN.
Until then, let’s enjoy alllllll the apple things! In my mind, when fall comes I have a specific “order” in my brain for what foods I want. Apples are always in September, like the “ease in” while it might still be a little warm out. Plus, that’s when we go apple picking each year, we’re going this weekend and I cannot wait!
Then October hits and it’s all pumpkin, all the time, basically until December. Poor apples only get one quick month! But honestly, who doesn’t enjoy a good apple all year long? Plus, one month is enough when you’re making this vegan caramel apple baked oatmeal on repeat, which definitely has been the case at my house lately.
You know I love my classic, no baking required oatmeal bowls, and overnight oats are so nice for if you’re particularly busy in the mornings. But there’s something about fall that just calls for any and all things cozy and extra comforting, which immediately makes me think of baked oats. I know it’s an extra step, but honestly you’ll be so glad you did it! Baking the oats gives them such a satisfying dense, cake-y texture and it’s perfect on a cool fall morning.
Simply mix some oats, cinnamon (because that’s required with apples in the fall!), flax eggs, date paste (the caramel element here), diced apple, and some nondairy milk of your choice. Easy peasy! Bake for 30 minutes and you’re ready for the fall breakfast of your dreams.
This vegan caramel apple baked oatmeal is the perfect way to ease into fall and all things baking. So simple and made with just a few healthy ingredients, but the flavor is pretty incredible, if I do say so myself. The oats are dense and so satisfying, and I love the date caramel flavor with the cinnamon! Seriously fall in a bite.
So get your booty to the apple orchard (or to the grocery store), cozy up with a fat slice of this vegan caramel apple baked oatmeal, and revel in the bliss that is the fall season. Hope you guys love this one as much as I did and that you’re having a beautiful fall so far!
Have a happy, healthy day, babes!
