Apple Oatmeal Breakfast Cake – An easy and delicious breakfast or snack idea filled with shredded apples and oatmeal. It’s perfect for back to school!
My kids LOVED this Apple Oatmeal Breakfast Cake. My two little ate 2 squares each! I was so excited because this is the kind of recipe I love to make. It’s old-fashioned and EASY!
When my 5 year old learned I was making something with oatmeal, she stayed near the kitchen. I was asked quite a few times if she could finally taste it. She patiently waited for me take some pictures, but I knew she couldn’t wait to dig in to one of those squares. She is the oatmeal queen, and she could eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner if I let her.
So I see myself making these quite often this fall. And no matter how much I’m resisting, back to school time has arrived. It’s so bittersweet. We’ve had the most wonderful summer. I don’t think I’m ready for all the stress, but I’m hoping all this relaxation we’ve had will get me through those busy first few weeks of teaching. I’m so proud y’all…I’ve read 6 novels this summer! SIX! That means I really chilled out. (And if you’re a reader, be sure to check out this post and this post for some great reading ideas).
These little squares are made in a small baking dish. If you use a larger one like a 9 x 9 or a 10 x 10, they will need less baking time and will yield a thinner cake. I love my 8 x 8 one. It gets used quite often.
