  • ½ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ teaspoon ground cardamom
  • ½ teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 & ¾ cups unsweetened almond milk *or milk of choice
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter *melted & slightly cooled
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 2 & ½ cups whole grain oats *see note below
  • 1 medium size apple, diced *see note below
  • ¼ cup chopped walnuts *optional

Recipe notes: 

Whole grain oats: you can substitute quick oats but the final product may not be quite as moist.
Apple: a crisp, tart variety works best. I normally purchase pink lady apples for this recipe.


  • Preheat oven to 400°F and lightly coat an 8x8 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine applesauce, eggs, cardamom, cloves, cinnamon, vanilla extract and baking powder. Whisk until all ingredients are well combined.
  • Add milk, melted butter & honey. Whisk again.
  • Stir in your whole grain oats and diced apple. Pour batter into your baking dish and sprinkle chopped walnuts on top (optional).
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes, until golden.
  • Allow baked oatmeal to cool, cut into squares and serve! If desired, drizzle honey, agave or maple syrup on your oatmeal for a sweeter treat.


  • Place oatmeal squares in an airtight food storage container or Ziploc bag. Refrigerate for 3-4 days or freeze for up to 3 months.


  • To reheat your oatmeal squares, simply microwave for 30-90 seconds!
