Baked Apple Oatmeal

I made Nutella oatmeal bars a couple weeks ago and they were a huge bit with the kiddos. So I decided to try a little healthier version with apples and cinnamon.

1/2 c brown or coconut palm sugar
1 TBSP vanilla
2 1/2 c old-fashioned rolled oats
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp nutmeg
2 c milk
1 egg
2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted and cooled
2 c chopped apples
1 c chopped nuts
2 tsp cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Grease an 8-inch square baking dish.

In a medium bowl, combine all the ingredients until well incorporate

Spoon the oat mixture into the baking dish and place in oven.

Bake for 35 – 45 minutes, or until the oatmeal is a light golden brown along the edges, and the center has set up. Cool for 10 or 15 minutes, slice, and serve.
