Baked Apple Pie Oatmeal

So... This morning... Post-workout... I tried something.
Something new (to me).
Something delicious.
Something completely worth the time it consumed.
What was that something, you ask?

Baked apple pie protein oatmeal. Yes.
{Inspiration from the wonderful Ashley!}
1/4-1/2 cup old fashioned dry oats
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup almond milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 egg whites (or egg substitute, 1 full egg, etc.)
dash of cinnamon
1 packet of Stevia/sweetener
1/4-1/2 scoop cinnamon roll protein powder (optional!)
1/2 apple, diced
cinnamon flavored cereals, crushed (I crushed up Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Churro cereal... Hehe.)
*NOTE: you may need more liquid if you use more oats. I used 1/2 + 1/4 with about 1/3 cup oats, but you can do whatever your lovely little heart desires!

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Mix all of your ingredients, aside from your apple, in a bowl.
When done mixing all ingredients, add in the apple.
Coat the bottom of a glass/oven-safe dish with granola and the crushed cinnamon cereals.
Pour in your oatmeal "batter".
Top your oatmeal with more cinnamon, granola, and cereals.
Bake for 10-20 minutes (depending on how much liquid you end up using!). Mid-cooking,  re-top your oatmeal with more things if you want a crunchier topping!

I also recommend mixing in a spoonful of peanut butter of any flavor. (Also melt some and swirl it on top!)

I will definitely be experimenting with baked oatmeal some more, and hopefully I'll come up with some great recipes myself!

Hope you guys try it out and enjoy!
