Recipe: Baked Steel Cut Oats – Apple Carrot Cinnamon

I love oats of all kinds – quick, rolled, steel cut, or groats. You name the oats, I love ’em all! I like to switch it up often, but the current favourite in our household is this sweet, cinnamon-y baked steel cut oat recipe.

Baked Steel Cut Oats - Apple Carrot Cinnamon


  • 1 cup steel cut oats
  • 1 shredded apple (1 cup)
  • 1 shredded carrot (1/2-2/3 cup)
  • 1 cup apple sauce
  • 1 cup non-dairy milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract (or vanilla powder)


  1. Preheat oven to 375F
  2. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl
  3. Add to baking dish (we have made this recipe using either an 8” x 11” or a square 8” x 8” dish)
  4. Bake for 45-50 minutes (see notes)
  5. Allow to cool slightly before serving
  6. Add additional toppings if desired – more shredded carrot, shredded zucchini, your favourite fruit, nuts, or raisins.


  • The steel cut oats will be oatmeal style – they will not solidify.
  • The longer the bake time, the drier the finished product will be. When using the 8 x 11” baking dish, we allow it to cook for 45 minutes, and tend to leave the oats in the oven longer when using the smaller 8 x 8″ square pan.
