Chai-Spiced Apple Baked Oatmeal

I am in love with this season. It’s finally cool in the mornings and evenings, yet still sunny and warmer in the afternoon. I am thrilled for boots, jeans, sweaters, and most importantly way more use of my oven!

This recipe is quintessential fall. Warm and cozy baked oatmeal with all of the flavors of a chai latte. Baked oatmeal is one of my favorite weekend breakfasts, it’s super easy to throw together and you can relax on the couch with a cup of coffee and a good book while it bakes. Talk about cozy weekend mornings!

I’ve been making baked oatmeal for a few years now, always playing around with different variations, and this is one of my favorites. The chai spice adds a unique flavor and the apples at a nice sweetness and texture.

This baked oatmeal is healthy while still big on flavor. It’s naturally vegan and gluten free, and is only sweetened by the apples. Though I like it with a drizzle of maple syrup on top.

I hope this makes it on to your weekend breakfast rotation!

Note. I like this chai spice.
