This apple vegan baked oatmeal with cinnamon and walnuts dish is a wholesome breakfast that can be made ahead of time.


  • 2 tablespoon ground flaxseed (+ 5 tablespoons water)
  • 2  1/4 cups (215 g) old fashioned oats
  • 1  1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1  1/3 cups (315 ml) dairy-free milk
  • 1/2 cup (126 g) unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large apple, small diced
  • 1/3 cup (35 g) chopped walnuts or pecans


  1. Preheat the oven to 35o F (180 C).  
  2. In a small bowl make the flax egg by mixing the 2 tablespoons of ground flax seed with 5 tablespoons of water.  Let it sit and gel for 10 minutes while you prep the rest of the ingredients.
  3. In a large bowl, mix the rolled oats, ground cinnamon, baking powder, and salt.
  4. Then mix the flax egg, dairy-free milk, applesauce, maple syrup, and vanilla into the oat mixture.
  5. Fold in the diced apple and walnuts (or pecans).
  6. Pour the mixture into an 8x8 glass baking dish and spread the mixture out evenly.
  7. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until the middle is almost set and the edges are firmed up.
  8. Let the baked oats cool for 5-10 minutes before serving.
  9. It’s a soft right out of the oven, but firms up as it cools.
  10. Eat it warm or cold.


Use rolled oats, not steel-cut or quick-cooking variations.

Be sure to use ground flax seed to make the flax egg and to let it gel with water for about 10 minutes.

Place the uncooked mixture promptly into a preheated oven before the oats start to soak up the dairy-free milk.

If you don’t use a glass baking dish, then lightly grease a baking tray.
