apple oats breakfast pudding

I get a ton of requests for this recipe all the time, and it is my family’s favorite breakfast that I make.  I first found this recipe on, but have since modified it to fit our healthier eating habits.

Apple and Oats Breakfast Pudding 1


  • 2 cups of milk (skim or whole depending on your tastes)
  • 3 T of sucanat (or another Natural Sweetener)
  • 1 T coconut oil
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 pinches of salt
  • 2 medium apples (peeled, cored and sliced)
  • 1 cup of organic rolled oats (not the quick cooking type)
  • 1 tsp of  vanilla extract
  • Sprinkling of Nutmeg (if desired)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350.
  2. Combine milk, sucanat, coconut oil, cinnamon and salt in a medium saucepan and heat until you scald the milk.
  3. Stir in the oats and apples (I use frozen apples I keep stocked in my freezer), and cook on high for about a minute.
  4. Stir in the vanilla and pour mixture into a prepared baking dish (grease it with a little coconut oil).
  5. Bake for 15 minutes, then stir and sprinkle on the nutmeg.
  6. Bake for 15 more minutes, and serve with a little milk poured over the the top.

Serves 4-5 people.

It’s a really simple and healthy breakfast, that turns out so creamy and delicious.  I plan on making this for Thanksgiving morning.  This is a light and healthy way to start out the day without adding a ton of fat and calories to our diets. Give it a try, and I bet you will go back for seconds and thirds.
