Vegan Recipe - Baked Apple Raisin Oatmeal

It's the first Friday of the month and that means another delicious, vegan recipe. Why? Because meatless meals are one of the easiest ways to walk gently on the earth. Recipes like this one, or the ones found on our recipe page, are guaranteed to please even the most devout carnivore.

This month's recipe comes from The Knowlton Nest. It's easy to put together and delicious. I think it would be perfect for a holiday brunch or for a yummy family breakfast. Thanks to Shonda who graciously agreed to share it with us!

Baked Apple Raisin Oatmeal

2 2/3 c. old fashioned oatmeal
1/2 c. raisins
1/4 c. maple syrup
1/4 c. brown sugar
2 t. cinnamon
4 c. soymilk
2 unpeeled chopped apples
walnuts for topping

Mix altogether. Put in greased 9x13 in pan. Bake at 350 for 45-50 min.

Doesn't that make your mouth water? Thanks, again, to Shonda for sharing this recipe with us.

If you have a vegan recipe to share, we'd love to try it. Just Email Me.

As always ... I would love to hear from you!


  1. I wonder if you could use steel cut oats... hmmm... I may have to try it out.

  2. Good question, Marcy! I would think they would work but not positive. If you try it out, please let us know, okay? Thanks!

  3. A Holiday Thought...

    Aren't humans amazing? They kill wildlife - birds, deer, all kinds of cats, coyotes, beavers, groundhogs, mice and foxes by the million in order to protect their domestic animals and their feed.

    Then they kill domestic animals by the billion and eat them. This in turn kills people by the million, because eating all those animals leads to degenerative - and fatal - health conditions like heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, and cancer.

    So then humans spend billions of dollars torturing and killing millions more animals to look for cures for these diseases.

    Elsewhere, millions of other human beings are being killed by hunger and malnutrition because food they could eat is being used to fatten domestic animals.

    Meanwhile, few people recognize the absurdity of humans, who kill so easily and violently, and once a year send out cards praying for "Peace on Earth."

  4. I bought some bread from the "hippie store" in Asheville and ate it thinking how good it was -turned out it was vegan! :0D

  5. MMmmmmm, looks yummy! I haven't really tried too many vegan recipes, but maybe I'd like it. I grew up around hunters and meat eaters in WV, so vegan dishes is a bit newer to me. Forgive my ignorance.

  6. My daughter is a vegetarian, and is always looking for recipes.

  7. We love, love, love oatmeal in our house and this looks like a great recipe, thanks for sharing!
