Ingredients
  • Apple Layer:
  • 2 medium apples (any apple variety is fine, we use Fuji)
  • 1 Tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp cornstarch
  • Oatmeal layer:
  • 2 large eggs (we use Eggland’s Best because they are the only egg with special nutrients like 4 X the vitamin D compared to other eggs and double the omega 3s. Plus, they have 25% less saturated fat than other eggs)
  • 1 ½ cup unsweetened cinnamon applesauce
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp Himalayan sea salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • ½ cup 0% plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 ½ cups low fat milk
  • 2 ½ cups old-fashioned rolled oats
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly oil an 8x8 square baking dish by spritzing it with oil in a spray canister.
  2. Wash and cut apples into cubes and place into as medium sized bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients for the apple layer. Stir until apples are evenly coated then place them evenly in the baking dish.
  3. In a large bowl whisk together the first 8 ingredients of the oatmeal layer. Add the milk and whisk to combine. Add the oats and stir to combine. Pour the oatmeal mixture evenly over the apples.
  4. Bake in the oven for 45 minutes, until the top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
