apple cinnamon baked oatmealEasy, fall baking recipes with apple just seem perfect for this time of year.  One in particular that hits the mark is this Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal recipe using SPLENDA® Naturals Stevia Sweetener. It’s a new Splenda product that offers great tasting, , no-calorie natural sweetener made with stevia extract. For more info on how the SPLENDA® Brand does naturals, visit splendanaturals.com. This apple cinnamon baked oatmeal recipe is very healthy and delicious. My husband tasted it and thought it could pass for a tasty dessert, almost like a bread pudding.  He was thrilled to see the list of healthy ingredients (most of which you can grab right from your pantry). You can use almost any type of apple of your choice for this baking recipe, such as honey crisp, granny smith, braeburn, melrose, golden delicious or gala.  For this recipe I used gala apples, the only apple that is available in my kitchen that day! 🙂 The result, is on-point.  Since Gala apple is naturally sweet, I can use less sugar and the crispness helps it retain its shape throughout baking.

For this Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal recipe, I only added 8 packets of SPLENDA® Naturals Stevia SweetenerOf course you can adjust the measurement according to your liking. I also swapped the regular milk with non dairy milk (Coconut Milk or Almond Milk). Please note : Use Coconut Milk beverage and not the one for cooking.
Other ingredients for this baked oatmeal recipe :
1. Chia seeds to boost the fiber content, chia seeds are rich in omega 3 and fatty acids.
2. Coconut Oil to replace butter (a healthier blend of fatty acids)
3. Dried Mulberry (great source of protein, vitamin C and K, fiber, and iron).

    The apple and cinnamon makes this one really tasty and healthy. The oatmeal is also good since its added fiber in our system.

    I love oatmeal in pretty much any form, and this looks especially delicious! I’m so intrigued by the dried mulberries (I’ve only had fresh…I need to dehydrate some!).

    Oh good! I love that this recipe uses stevia to add sweetness. I have issues with blood glucose levels and I limit my intake of sweets. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I’m making this soon as I get home.
