My best friend uses blueberries instead of raisins. It’s fantastic!! It freezes really well and is great to put together ahead of time for a busy day or for when you have company. My question, am I able to prepare the apple version the night before and bake in the morning as I did with the blueberry? I made this yesterday because I love oatmeal and wanted something I could heat up quickly for breakfast…so good. Adding whey powder to boost protein sounds like a great idea. If not, what about yogurt? And one final question- do the apples get soft, or stay firm? Will definitely make again! Thanks so much for this delicious receipe!!!

Seal tightly and refrigerate. The absolute best!! Followed the recipe exactly except I only added half the brown sugar because of the comments. ?

Hi Jenn, I would love to try this recipe but I have noticed that when I select metric measurement, it still shows the measures in cups. Thank you for all the great ideas! I love this recipe. I have had issues with other sites, not Jenns. I added 1cup of buttscotch morsels to give it a caramel-like addition and then divided it into 6 individual ramekins. In the future, I would add a bit of sweetener, pure applesauce, pure maple syrup or agave. It really is good! My 5 and 1 year old devour it and they are picky. I’m planning to do just this – make it in large muffin cups instead. Would flax seed or mashed banana work? Sorry! Enjoy every minute! I tried it for a church breakfast social, loved it, and am now a follower! What does it mean when something is “Amish-Style”? I also don’t like too many nuts so I also reduce that to 1/2 cup. I love this stuff. If I do need to drain, can I replace some of the milk with peach juice? This is one of my favorite breakfast dishes. Spoon … If you have tasted apple butter you’ll love it.

Hi Sandra, I’d suggest pulling it out of the oven after about 35 minutes (just make sure the oats are set). Thanks! I’ve several different baked oatmeals and this recipe is top notch!! It is super sweet and I’m going to make it next time with less brown sugar, but even being super sweet, I’m not complaining. I’ve made it with dried fruits like apricots and cherries but my family loves it best when I make it with fresh blueberries. I threw in a handful of fresh raspberries and blueberries last time I made it. So whilst I have serious sweet tooth, for some reason, I don’t like sugar in my porridge (that’s what we call oatmeal on this side of the pond), I normally go for fresh fruits and/or nuts so I contemplated for quite a while about the sugar in this recipe. Hi Nancy, this is really flexible and can be reheated in the microwave or in a 300-degree oven 15 – 20 minutes, or until heated through. I don’t think it would cause any problems if you completely eliminated the sugar/maple syrup, but a touch of sweetness is nice. This was very tasty and the whole family enjoyed it!

I usually make the original recipe for my husband and I, except we omit the nuts and sugar, and I like to add raspberries in it as well. Used 1/2 cup sugar rather than the 3/4 cup and felt it was sweet enough with that amount. Sweeter than apple crisp! Do you think I could use 2% milk and egg whites instead of whole milk and eggs and unsweetened applesauce for the butter? (The thicker the apple slices, the longer they'll need to cook). So good!
