  • Preheat your oven to 375°F/190°C and lightly grease your baking pan or skillet.
  • Cut the apples in half, scoop out the seeds with a spoon, and cut out what's left of the core with a knife. Then arrange the apples in the bottom of your greased baking pan.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the oats, oat flour, brown sugar, coconut oil or melted butter, ground cinnamon, and salt.
  • Evenly distribute the topping over each halved apple, lightly pushing it down (some will fall down into the skillet/pan).
  • Cover with foil, a lid, or a baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes, remove the cover and bake for another 20 minutes until the apples are soft and the oatmeal topping is lightly golden brown.
  • Enjoy as is or top with vanilla ice cream.


If you don't have foil, you can either bake the apples in an oven-safe skillet with an oven-safe lid or place a sheet pan on top of your baking dish. Both work great.
No oat flour? – you can either make your own by blending old-fashioned oats into flour or use all-purpose flour instead (gluten-free if needed).
No brown sugar? - coconut sugar or maple sugar are great subs for a similar flavor.
Add-ins - mix toasted chopped pecans or almonds into the topping, ground cardamom, or a pumpkin pie spice blend would also be a nice addition.
