Maple Apple Baked Oatmeal

It's Maple Month here in New Hampshire, and we've already hit the sugar shack to stock up on our syrup and other goodies for the year.   I had some apples leftover from the Upside Down Apple Pie I made, so when I searched the Taste of Home site, I knew this recipe would be perfect. Recently I've been eating a lot of oatmeal, and I've been searching for ways to switch it up.

Despite a huge baking dish collection, I do not own an 11x7. I went out to buy one, and somehow came home with another 13x9.  To make it work, I increased the amount of oats to 3 1/2 cups. I substituted almond milk for the fat-free milk.  I used Granny Smith apples, and since "chopped" is rather vague, I cut mine into about quarter inch dice.  I wanted to make sure they cooked all the way through.   The directions also don't specify whether to peel it or not, I peeled mine.

This was delicious the first day, and it also reheated well. I definitely will be making this again with different fruits. Pears or blueberries will be amazing, or even a combination of rhubarb and strawberries.  If you don't want to use the sunflower seeds or pepitas, toasted walnuts would be great too.

Thank you again to Christie for hosting Easter Week, and to all the other #FestiveFoodies for sharing their #EasterRecipes, I hope you've enjoyed them as much as I have! I think I've got my menu figured out now, there were so many great ideas to inspire me.
