Cinnamon Oat Baked Apples


 Cinnamon Oat Baked Apples -a healthy dessert to make for fall!

Cinnamon Oat Baked Apples

Hi friends! It’s Kristy from Sweet Treats & More!   When fall rolls around, which do you crave more–apple desserts or pumpkin ones?  Usually, I’m all about the pumpkin.  Like, I really love pumpkin.  But lately, it’s been a toss up and I’m buying apples by the dozen!  The thought of warm apple pie on a chilly fall day is just so inviting, don’t you think?

These Cinnamon Oat Baked Apples are the perfect way to enjoy the flavors of apple pie this fall without all of the calories.

Cinnamon Oat Baked Apples

Toasted oats and chopped pecans get mixed together with a little butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, and greek yogurt.  Core your apples (but not all the way through) and stuff the mixture inside the apples. Bake for 30-40 minutes and you’re done! Top with a little whipped cream {or ice cream}, a dash of cinnamon and and enjoy!

I especially love how the whipped cream melts all over the top of the hot apple!

I’m in full fall baking mode.  Come say hello and see a few of my fall favorite treats!

Cinnamon Oat Baked Apples


  • 4 gala apples
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/3 cup pecans (optional)
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tbsp greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp butter, melted
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 tbs apple juice
  • Whipped cream


1. Preheat oven to 350. Combine oats and pecans with a sprinkle of cinnamon. Spread out on a baking sheet in a thin layer and bake for 4-6 minutes until golden and toasted. Remove and set aside. Reduce oven temp to 325.

2. Rinse and core the apples, but make sure not to cut through the bottom of the apple. You can use an apple corer or a paring knife. Make sure seeds are removed as well (scoop out with spoon)

3. In a bowl combine oat-pecan mixture with brown sugar, yogurt , melted butter and cinnamon. Spoon mixture into the cavity of each apple. Place apples in an 8X8 inch baking dish. Pour apple juice in the bottom of dish.

4. Bake at 325 for 30-40 minutes until tender (not mushy). Top with whipped cream or ice cream and serve.

      What can I replace the Greek yogurt by? Sounds delicious!

        We have dairy allergies in our family and were planning on replacing the greek yogurt with a non-dairy yogurt. We use coconut yogurt, but soy or rice yogurt would work also.

    Kristy – These look amazing. Love how you used greek yogurt and can’t wait to try. Thanks for sharing :)

    This is really similar to a recipe I posted last year (minus the apple juice and whipped cream). It really is the perfect warm Fall breakfast or dessert if you add a little scoop of ice cream!

    You can find my recipe here if you’d like to compare:

    What kind of oats would I use?

    Hi, just made your baked apples for me and my boyfriend. They were delicious! Subbed Greek for fat free natural yogurt and didn’t add any apple juice but worked fine. Thanks for the recipe :)

    I found this on Pinterest and they look so good! I’m going to try them, I’ve pinned them to my board. Thanks for sharing!

    They look wonderful! Can you freeze them for later?

      I haven’t thought to try that! I’d be concerned about the texture of a cooked apple being frozen and defrosted, but if you warmed it up again I’d guess it would be similar to reheating a frozen apple pie. :)
