This caramel apple oatmeal recipe is healthy, vegan, gluten-free, and so easy! The whole family will love this cozy fall breakfast idea. It tastes like apple pie and feels like dessert for breakfast. The creamy stovetop oatmeal is sweetened with dairy-free caramel sauce and cinnamon, then topped with warm spiced apples. It’s high fiber, great for kids, and cold mornings! #oatmeal #oats #apple #fallrecipes #applerecipe #veganbreakfast #healthybreakfast #caramel #breakfastideas #glutenfreevegan


Units Scale

Caramel Oatmeal

Diced Apples

  • 1 medium apple, diced
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg


  1. Combine the oatmeal ingredients in a pot. This includes rolled oats, plant-based milk, water, peanut butter caramel, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and salt. Transfer the pot to a stovetop over medium heat. Cook for 6-8 minutes, stirring frequently, until thick and creamy.
  2. While the oatmeal is cooking, warm a skillet over medium-low heat. Lightly grease it with coconut oil (or nonstick spray). Add diced apple, ground cinnamon, ground ginger, and ground nutmeg. Cook for 3-5 minutes, stirring frequently, until the apples are warm and soft.
  3. Serve the oatmeal with cooked apples on top. Add an extra drizzle of peanut butter caramel, chopped pecans, or any toppings of your choosing. Enjoy!


  • Serve the oatmeal with any toppings of your choosing. I recommend serving it with extra peanut butter caramel and chopped nuts.
