Are you looking for a fun new way to start your morning?

How about oatmeal. And apples. Together. Stuffed.

That’s right. These oatmeal stuffed breakfast baked apples will give you all the breakfast feels.

I added chopped dried cranberries and toasted pecans to give it a little extra texture and a burst of flavor.

Trust me, if you’re looking for a new way to jazz up breakfast these breakfast stuffed apples are just what you need!

What type of apples should I use for baked apples?

I used granny smith apples for this recipe because they bake really well and I love their tart flavor.

However, if you want to use a different apple honeycrisp, winesap, jonagold, and cortland are all great baking apples.

Do I have to use dried cranberries?

Nope. You can easily substitute any dried fruit you have on hand and love.

I have made this with dried cherries, dried chopped apricots, and golden raisins and they all tasted great.

Can I make this nut free?

You can easily leave out the toasted pecans to keep it nut free.

You can also substitute any other nut you happen to have in the house. Walnuts, hazelnuts, and almonds all make a great substitute.

What I can serve with baked breakfast apples?

I like to drizzle mine with maple syrup to add just a touch of sweetness.

You can also serve it with yogurt for a delicious breakfast or whipped cream or ice cream to serve it as a dessert.

How do I store these baked apples?

If you make all 4 apples and don’t eat them all you can easily keep them covered in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.

How do I reheat breakfast baked apples?

I cut mine in half and heat in the microwave for a minute.

Can I make these sweeter?

I really love to drizzle my warm baked apples with maple syrup for a little touch of sweetness.

You could also drizzle your apples with honey.

Oatmeal Stuffed Breakfast Baked Apples

Yield: 4 apples
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes

These oatmeal stuffed breakfast baked apples are a delicious and comforting way to start the day. Filled with old fashioned oats, dried fruit, toasted nuts, and just a touch of sweetness.

Ingredients

  • 4 large granny smith apples
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup chopped dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup chopped toasted pecans
  • 4 tablespoons butter, frozen, diced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and spray an 8x8 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Cut the top off each apple and scoop out the core. I find it easiest to use a melon baller or a smaller spoon.
  3. In a small bowl combine oats, flour, brown sugar, dried cranberries, pecans, butter, and cinnamon.
  4. Add apples to the prepared pan.
  5. Divide the oat mixture between the 4 apples and stuff the centers of the apples.
  6. Bake, uncovered, for 25-30 minutes, or until the apples have softened slightly and the oat mixture is starting to brown.
  7. Serve warm with a drizzle of maple syrup, a dollop of whipped cream, or a side of yogurt.
