Apple Pie Oatmeal - apple pie for breakfast is completely acceptable and it's healthy! Make it in just 10 minutes! EASY!

The girls love eating oatmeal for breakfast. Ani calls it oappymeal – I’m not exactly sure how it started, but I’ll be sad when she grows out of it. They’re growing up all too fast, thanks to time and lots of healthy meals.

Incredibly easy, incredibly good apple pie oatmeal recipe

Last month, I started driving Adalyn to school, which gives us an additional 45 minutes to spend together in the morning. Mornings feel a bit more leisurely now and I have time to make them something a little healthier than a bowl of cereal.

Apple Pie Oatmeal - the perfect healthy breakfast for fall

I was tired of serving them oatmeal out of a packet and wondering what the powder substance consists of, so I started making homemade oatmeal, which only takes a few extra minutes. I’ve been experimenting with different low sugar, high protein “flavors” and have found a favorite – Apple Pie Oatmeal. I’m giving you permission to eat pie for breakfast, without the guilt.

To keep my kids fuller longer, I am always looking for more ways to get more protein in them. I make Apple Pie Oatmeal with fairlife milk and walnuts, which has more protein than other milk, and minimize their sugar intake, so that they don’t crash. I use just a touch of butter with apple pie spice and cinnamon to marinate fresh apples cubes. It makes the kitchen smell delightful, just like fall.

    Hi Julie! This looks so good! I am wondering if you use regular old fashioned rolled oats or if you use quick oats? I am thinking it is old fashioned but thought I would check for sure.
    Thanks……Jackie

  • Okay, I totally need to try this. I actually bought some Fairlife milk a couple weeks ago because of one of your posts. I didn’t know what it was. I love that it has extra protein, plus it last longer in the fridge!

    I’ve been eating overnight oats, but as the weather cools, this might be my new alternative!

  • Looks delicious! I’ve been eating oatmeal every morning for health reasons. I usually add flax seed meal, cinnamon and blueberries. The blueberries are one of the things I need, but I am getting tired of them. I’m thinking about working this in a couple of times a week for a little variety.
