Baked Oatmeal Without Eggs or Milk

This oatmeal recipe uses absolutely no eggs or regular milk! Just like in my Matcha Latte recipe, we use plant based milk as listed above. Feel free to use any milk you have on hand though! And even if you don’t have milk, you can sub with good ole’ H2O (water). The oats and protein powder make this oatmeal bake soft, chewy, and slightly fluffy without having to add any eggs.

How to Make Vegan Apple Pie Baked Oats

As I just said above, you don’t need any eggs or flax eggs for this baked oatmeal recipe. It’s completely vegan and plant based. The beauty of this oatmeal recipe is that you can use whatever protein powder or milk you have on hand! Even if you don’t have milk, you can sub it for all water. That’s how easy and simple it is!

This high protein baked oatmeal recipe is made with my very favorite unflavored plant based protein powder. And if you’re looking for more great vegan breakfast options, check out these 12 Easy Vegan Protein Breakfasts!

Apple Pie Baked Oatmeal (Protein + Healthy!)

This Healthy Apple Pie Baked Oatmeal is soft, and loaded with cinnamon, fall flavor! You would never know it’s secretly healthy, packed with protein, vegan, and gluten-free! Meal prep this clean eating breakfast to enjoy all week long!

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 Cup Unsweetened Applesauce
  • 2 Cups Rolled Oats (can use quick cooking)
  • ⅛ tsp Pink Himalayan Salt
  • 1 Tbs Cinnamon
  • ⅛ tsp Nutmeg (just a dash)
  • 1 Scoop Unflavored Plant-Based Protein Powder (See Note 3 for sub options)
  • 3-4 Tbs Pure Maple Syrup or Honey (See Note 3 if using flavored/sweetened protein powder)
  • 1 Cup Unsweetened Almond Milk (or any milk of choice)
  • 1 Cup Water
  • 1 Heaping Cup Diced Apple (about 2 small or 1 medium apple. I left the skin on.)

Optional:

  • 3-4 Scoops Unflavored Collagen Peptides (I love this brand)
  • Chopped walnuts, any nut of choice, or crumble topping

Optional Cinnamon Crumble Topping

  • 3 Tbs Oat Flour (can sub rolled or quick cooking oats)
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 2 tsp Pure Maple Syrup or Honey
  • ¼ Cup Roughly Chopped Walnuts

Instructions

1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.

2. In a 2 quart baking pan  add all ingredients except diced apples into baking dish and stir until mixture is combined.

3. Gently stir in diced apples (should be larger bite sized pieces). Optional: top with nuts or crumble topping. Make crumble topping by mixing all ingredients in a small bowl until combined.

4. Place in the oven to bake at 350 F. for 35-40 minutes until golden brown.

5. Let baked oatmeal cool for a few minutes or until set and serve with nut butter, protein cream cheese icing, fresh berries, banana slices, or your favorite milk! 

6. Store in the fridge for up to a week and enjoy a premade healthy breakfast all week long!

Notes

  1. Liquid: You can use any liquid of choice for this recipe. I use a combination of plain unsweetened almond milk and water to make the oats thick and creamy. You can swap the milk for all water or do a different combination. I have found that this combo works perfectly though!
  2. Most oats are gluten-free, just make sure by checking the packaging! I love this brand.
  3. Any plant based protein powder works! If you’re using flavored or sweetened protein powder, I suggest adjusting honey or maple syrup to taste or omitting it completely.  I DON'T recommend using whey protein powder because it can cause a chewy, almost crispy texture. I've had people use whey that love it still, but personally, I would avoid whey for these texture reasons.
  4. Don’t have applesauce? You can sub the apple sauce with 1 Cup mashed ripe banana or ½ Cup of your favorite yogurt. Adjust the amount of honey/maple syrup to taste if needed.
