Apple Pie Oatmeal Breakfast Bake

Unless you're a super zen, early rising superhuman, mornings are often mayhem. Getting yourself ready and out the door on time AND being fed properly is a mission. Throw in a few extra tiny humans to round up, and you're lucky to have even a hot coffee let alone a proper breakfast. But as we all know, breakfast IS the most important meal of the day.

So this Meatless Monday is dedicated you, the morning chaos crew who need a simpler breakfast without sacrificing nutrition. You're welcome.


Apple Pie Oatmeal Breakfast Bake

Author: Rise Shine Cook



3 cups large diced apple  (about 2 large or 3 small apples)
2 flax eggs (2 tablespoons ground flaxseed mixed with 5 tablespoons warm water) or 2 traditional eggs
3 cups uncontaminated oats (or traditional rolled oats)
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
½ cup sultanas
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons cinnamon
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
2 tablespoons chia seeds
3 tablespoons hemp seeds
¼ teaspoon salt
3 ½ cups unsweetened almond milk
½ cup maple syrup
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons coconut sugar (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 175 degrees.
  2. Chop the apples and transfer to a large bowl of water with a squeeze of lemon (this prevents browning).
  3. Make the flax eggs by mixing 2 tablespoons ground flaxseed with 5 tablespoons of warm water in a small bowl. Set aside and let sit for 5 minutes. 
  4. In a large bowl mix the rolled oats, nuts, sultanas, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, chia seeds, hemp seeds and salt.
  5. Add the following to a blender: almond milk, maple syrup, vanilla, and flax eggs/eggs. Blend until smooth. You can also whisk this by hand in a bowl but I find the blender much easier. 
  6. Add the blender mixture to the dry ingredients and mix. 
  7. Strain the apples well and add to the bowl and mix. The mixture will seem loose, this is ok. 
  8. Transfer the mix to an 9x9 casserole dish or non-stick brownie pan. Cover with foil and bake for 50 minutes. 
  9. After 50 minutes remove the foil, sprinkle the coconut sugar (if using) on top and continue to bake for another 20 minutes. 
  10. Remove from the oven and let sit for 10 minutes. Slice and serve!
