Perfect for the fall, this apple pie baked oatmeal is a cozy, delicious make-ahead breakfast for the week, reminiscent of warm apple pie flavors! Oatmeal is one of my go-to breakfasts in the fall and winter because it’s satiating and satisfyingly cozy. But I don’t always want to dirty a pot every morning and wait for the oats to cook. Enter baked oatmeal! I get the satisfaction of hot oatmeal every morning but only have to make one batch for the work week and dirty one pan!
