Healthy and Easy Apple Pie Oatmeal
Apple pie is one of the most delicious and comforting desserts but unfortunately, it is packed with refined carbs and sugars, promoting inflammation. My favorite substitute is a healthy apple pie oatmeal recipe.
Oatmeal topped with apple pie stuffing is a delicious and healthy substitute for the classic apple pie! The crust can be avoided by replacing it with oatmeal that is packed with fiber and is more filling. The pecans give the oatmeal a nice crunch that you usually get with pie crust. By making your own filling, you’re able to replace the refined sugar with pure maple syrup which is a natural unrefined sugar. The apples will still come out caramelized and perfect.
This oatmeal is one of the many recipes I include in the 6-week customized meal plans I offer. I take personal care to make sure your plan includes delicious recipes that fit the macros you need to get the body you want.

Healthy and Easy Creamy Apple Pie Oatmeal
This oatmeal is 671 calories with 37g fat, 70g carbs, and 16g protein with whole milk. With unsweetened almond milk, the oatmeal is 550 calories with 32g fat, 58g carbs, and 9g protein.
- 40g old fashioned rolled oats (1/2 cup)
- 1 cup whole milk or unsweetened almond milk
- 121g slivered apples, (1 small)
- 20g whole pecans
- 2 tsp. pure maple syrup
- 1 tbsp. salted butter (14g solid)
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- Preheat the oven to 350ᵒF and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Melt the butter in a bowl then toss in the apples, pecans, maple syrup, and ¼ tsp. cinnamon. Coat the apples evenly with the butter. Add more maple syrup or cinnamon depending on your taste preference.
- Lay the apples and pecans flat on the baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes or until the apples are tender. Remove the pecans halfway as they cook faster and will burn if you keep them in the oven the whole time.
- Add the oats, milk, and ¼ tsp. cinnamon to a small pot. Bring to a gentle boil then reduce to simmer, stirring the whole time. Cook the oats until they are tender but are still slightly runny.
- Tops the oats with the apples and pecans and enjoy!
- You never want to cook your oats until they absorb all the milk or water. As the oats cool, they begin to dry up so if it’s best to keep them a little runny so by the time they’re ready to eat, they aren’t dry.
- You can use any nut milk, vegan butter, or coconut oil but you won’t get the authentic apple pie flavor but it’ll still be delicious.
