Apple Pie Oatmeal
Chilly Autumn mornings call for a comforting bowl of Apple Pie Oatmeal !
Brisk Autumn mornings and crisp local apples–these are a few of my favorite things! Ok, so maybe I shouldn’t pursue a career following in the footsteps of Julie Andrews. Nevertheless, we are still heading into one of my favorite times of the year here in upstate New York. Autumn. The nights have already started getting a bit chillier, and I love sitting outside in the evenings watching the sun set. And waking up on Saturday morning and curling up on the back porch with a blanket and a mug of hot coffee (or Masala Chai) is seriously one of my favorites times of the week!
But aside from the weather, we’re in that time of the year where both the summer fruit farms and the apple orchards are open for business. We took Robbie up to a local blueberry farm north of Saratoga Springs, NY a couple of weeks ago, and he had a blast! He had his own little bucket, and he picked berries…only to promptly reach in his bucket and pull each berry right back out. His bucket was empty by the time we were done, but his belly was definitely full! Not to worry, though. Laura and I picked a ton of fresh berries to bring home, and we’ve been nibbling on them for breakfast and lunch lately.
Oatmeal is one of my favorite breakfasts in the colder months. Our morning routine is down to a science with Laura getting out the door to drop off Robbie and then get to work. And then I take care of the dogs and eat a quick breakfast before heading off to work myself. Sometimes in the hustle and bustle it’s easy to forget breakfast…but it really is the most important meal of the day! This Apple Pie Oatmeal is a breeze to make, and it’s quite fun with all of the toppings on it, too!
In addition to fresh berries and local apples, we really enjoy topping this Apple Pie Oatmeal with a couple of goodnessKNOWS snack squares. Have you ever tried these snack squares? They’re delicious! Laura picked them up for the first time on a work trip last year, and she’s been raving about them ever since! These snack squares come in a variety of flavors, and each flavor features a combination of different fruits and nuts on top of a layer of dark chocolate. Each individual two-bite square is approximately 40 calories. Oh, and all goodnessKNOWS snack squares are gluten-free with no artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners.
We keep packs of goodnessKNOWS snack squares around to get through the afternoon slump. Anyone who has ever chased a toddler around the house in the late afternoon totally understands the need for a snack! And now we’ve also started adding snack squares to our oatmeal in the morning. How can you beat starting your morning off with a warming bowl of Apple Pie Oatmeal topped with a couple of apple, almond & peanut dark chocolate snack squares?
Not only is this Apple Pie Oatmeal delicious, but it comes together in a flash, too! While the oatmeal is in the microwave, I chop up an apple and pull out some goodnessKNOWS snack squares from the pantry. As soon as that microwave beeps, I’ve got those toppings on there, and I’m sitting down to catch the morning news before it’s time to go to work. What is your morning routine?
goodnessKNOWS snack squares come in 6 different flavors, all crafted with dark chocolate. Flavors include:
cranberry & almond
apple, almond & peanut
peach, cherry & almond
blueberry & almond
mixed berry & almond
strawberry & peanut
Crock-Pot Apple Pie Oatmeal
There is nothing that make my mornings happier than knowing that I have a healthy breakfast all ready to go when the kids and I wake up.
And this recipe for overnight apple pie oatmeal made in my slow cooker fits all the requirements for me.
Not a lot of prep work involved…just measuring out the steel cut oats, water, and spices and then chopping up a couple of apples.
You basically just throw everything in your slow cooker and let it do it’s thing while you sleep.
Now if only everything else were that easy right?
When making oatmeal in your crock-pot the key really is to use steel cut oats. Other kinds of oatmeal like instant oatmeal, quick cooking oatmeal and even old fashioned rolled oatmeal tends to get mushy when cooked for any length of time in the slow cooker.
But not good and hearty steel cut oats! Because they are less processed they hold up their texture beautifully in the long cooking environment. AND as a bonus…they are healthier for you too with more nutrients and fiber than other forms of processed oats.
If you are on a gluten free diet we recommend using a brand of steel cut oats that is gluten free. While oats in general are gluten free, not all brands are in fact labeled as gluten free. We really like McCann’s Steel Cut Irish Oatmeal. They are easy to find and are indeed labeled as gluten free.
This recipe contains no added sweetener. I found it to be plenty sweet with just the apples. However feel free to sweeten the oats to suit your taste with sugar, honey or your favorite sweetener.

How to boost the protein
One of the important building blocks for all THM meals is protein.
I’ve found that my body burns through the carbs in my E meals really quickly.
The key to not getting too hungry before your next meal is to boost the protein.
The first time I tried developing this recipe, I added protein powder. Unfortunately, that gets really grainy when it’s heated.
I mentioned this to a friend and she told me that Jennifer Aniston adds egg whites to her oatmeal.
I gave that option a try the next time and WOW! Not only did the egg whites add 10 grams of protein, but they also made the texture kind of fluffy.
Back to our apple pie oatmeal recipe:
Once your apples are tender, it’s time for the egg white magic.
First, reduce the heat to low.
Start stirring and S-L-O-W-L-Y add the egg whites, stirring constantly over low heat.
Keep stirring until the egg whites are absorbed and the mixture is heated through.
If your heat is too high, the eggs may curdle. That won’t change the way it tastes, but it looks a little weird.
Next, check your seasonings.
I usually don’t add any sweetener to my bowl because the apple adds natural sugar. But my family prefers their food sweeter so I add 2-3 teaspoons of Pyure granulated sweetener to theirs.
If you want to elevate your oatmeal to a whole new level, try toasting some oats to sprinkle on top!
I toast mine by adding 1/2 cup to a saute pan, spraying them lightly with coconut oil, and then heating them until they’re a deep brown.
The 14 grams of protein in this Apple Pie Oatmeal is usually enough to keep me satisfied until my next meal.
BUT, if I know it’s going to be longer than 3 hours until I eat again, I add a scoop of collagen either to the oats or to my coffee or tea for an extra 11 grams of protein.
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!
