OMG!!! This looks amazing...I can taste it already and I haven't even made it yet. Thanks for an alternate to my smoothies. Love to have something much warmer on these bitter 30 below zero days. Thanks so much !!

This sounds fabulous and I have a bag of apples in the fridge.

I wouldn't even peel the apples... it saves time, and there is fiber and nutrition in the peels!

Sounds like a health version of "apple crisp." Would also make a good dessert. Haven't tried it yet, but it sounds really yummy!

I totally agree with SueMelnyk: This looks amazing. I can't wait to try this as a warm alternative for breakfast. My asthma won't let me eat that many bananas so I am always hunting for safer alternatives to change up my breakfast menus. I can almost smell it baking now.

This is pretty yum. Leftovers were still good after two days in the fridge. Might be nicer to blend 1/4 c of the walnuts and sprinkle the rest on top so there's some crunchiness and variety of texture. I'd make this again, though it's hard to go a day without the Quick Banana Berry Breakfast To Go!

These were nice - not out of this world, but ... nice. I enjoyed the sauce and the slight crunch from the oats. I added coconut flakes. If I were to make these again, I would chop the apples into smaller pieces and serve with ice cream as a dessert. Thank you!

There was a lot of it but as four servings it fell short like a lot of the recipes here.  While this had a good flavor, it was little more than a bunch of apples with some seasoning.  I would add another grain to it to give it more depth.  The cinnamon was a bit strong too.

I only had one apple, so tried with peaches. Made half the recipe and added 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg which I like with peaches. Reserved half the nuts (used pecans due to hubby's walnut allergy) to mix in with fruit per suggestion of another reviewer. Very nice flavor and texture. 4 stars from both. Hubby indicated could use more oats. Used a small (about 6x6) casserole dish for half the recipe. Ended up baking a bit longer than recipe said, and I will do that in the future to help soften fruit.

15 minutes seems hardly enough time to cook the I cooked mine for 45 minutes covered and 15 mins uncovered . Worked for me -

This dish is AMAZING!!!  So good! and that's coming from someone who until 5 days ago was totally addicted to sugar and the "American Way of Eating"!  I added an additional 1/2 cup of Almond milk because it was drier than I liked when it came out of the oven and I only used half of the raisins and substituted the chia seed with hemp seeds (I had hemp on hand).  5 Stars!  YUM!

Second morning in a row I make this breakfest. Love it! I added more almond milk and sliced the apples really thin. Yummy! 15 min was perfect
