The only breakfast you do to eat all fall. Stuffed with oatmeal, cinnamon, and maple syrup, these baked apples are a good-for-you start to the day.



  • 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 2 tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp. ground cinnamon
  • 4 large baking apples
  • 2 tbsp. dried cranberries
  • 2 tbsp. chopped pecans


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a medium saucepan, combine oatmeal and 3 cups water and cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until creamy. Stir in maple syrup and ground cinnamon and let cool slightly.
  2. Transfer apples to a glass baking dish and spoon in oatmeal. Bake until apples are soft and bubbly, 35 minutes.
  3. Top oatmeal with dried cranberries and chopped pecans and serve.
