I make this on the weekend for the kids to eat through the week. I double the recipe with no problems. It is a great way to use up the applesauce in the fridge.

  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup milk
  • ¼ cup butter, softened
  • ¼ cup applesauce
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Cooking Directions

Chef's Notes

You can bake this in muffin tins for individual servings (fill 3/4 full), before you bake add some canned raspberry pie filling to the top.


  1. I made this as written plus 1t cinnamon & used old fashioned oats as I didn't have quick oats on hand. I thought it was dry.
  2. EASY recipe and lots of compliments at our church breakfast potluck. I doubled the recipe and it easily fit into the 9x13 pan. Also, I used twice as much applesauce as it called for, added cinnamon for extra flavor, and cooked it a few extra minutes. Success!
  3. I used brown sugar instead of white and added dried cherries apricot and blueberries. I also used left over homemade applesauce made from Macintosh apples. It is delicious!
  4. Baked this in an 8 x 8 pan which is correct size for this quantity. Used 1/2C unsweetened applesauce & 2T butter instead of the 4T butter.
  5. Easy and healthy! I have made it about 4 times now and completely eliminate the butter. I double the recipe and make it in a 9x13 pan and then again double the applesauce to eliminate butter - so I add 1 cup of applesauce. Then I add lots of cinnamon and use vanilla soy or - Read more ...
  6. SUPER easy incredibly adaptable and DELICOUS!! I made it 50-50 white and brown sugar (will prob. go all brown next time) added raisins and cinnamon and as suggested baked it in a 8 x 8 square Pyrex pan. Topped it w/more applesauce. Next time might add yogurt!! YUM!!
  7. Thank you for a great base recipe.Recipe is very good with no alterations to the ingredients or you can personalize with nuts fruits spices etc... I agree with other reviewers comments on size of baking dish. 9 x 13 is too big. We used a smaller dish.
  8. If you follow the recipes with no portion adjustments it's too little for a 9x13 pan. The first time I made it I doubled the recipe the next time I placed it in a smaller pan. Both times we loved it. I think this has become our new standard baked oatmeal recipe.
  9. This made my whole house smell so good! I added a 1/2 tsp of cinammon and a few handfuls of chopped pecans for some protein. I also baked it in a 9x9 square pan instead of a seemed much too thin to spread evenly in the larger pan, and I like my baked oatmeal - Read more ...
  10. I added some cinnamon to it... super yummy!!! Ive never baked oatmeal before and this turned out so delicious!!
