Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal
This oatmeal is a bit different than the one you may eat for breakfast. Since this recipe involves baking, the oatmeal will come out solid, and can be cut into bars. Braeburn apples are the best type to use, but other varieties like Empire or Gala would work.

- 1 cup of chopped walnuts
- 2 tsp. of ground cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp. of ground ginger
- 1/4 tsp. of salt
- 1 cup of diced apples (about 1 apple)
- 1/2 cup of applesauce
- 1/2 cup of milk, at room temperature
- 2 eggs, at room temperature
- 1/4 cup of maple syrup
- 1 tsp. of pure vanilla extract
