The Best Baked Oats Recipe
Baked oats have recently gained popularity, and for good reason! By blending the oats with additional ingredients like banana, eggs, milk and maple syrup, you can get a batter that will bake into a fluffy, cakey texture! You can even make these for dessert!
If you don’t like normal oatmeal but still want a nutritious breakfast, baked oats are going to be your new favorite. They have just the right amount of sweetness with lots of protein and nutrients! You can add the chocolate chips, or replace them with dried fruit for a healthier option.
Serve as is, or drizzle with some of your favorite nut butter or a little extra maple syrup for a sweet topping!
- Oats: Regular, old-fashioned oats are great here. You can use quick oats, but avoid steel cut oats as they will not blend as well!
- Maple Syrup: Great as a natural sweetener!
- Banana: Banana adds nutrients and also naturally sweetens these oats!
- Eggs: Eggs are great for protein and help the baked oats get fluffy!
- Baking Powder: Baking powder also helps to give a little rise in the oven.
- Salt: To balance all the flavors!
- Vanilla: Vanilla adds extra flavor to help make this recipe as satisfying as possible.
- Cinnamon: For a warm, spicy touch!
- Milk: To add creaminess!
- Chocolate Chips: Optional, to make these a special treat!
How to Make baked oats
- Preheat & Prep: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease two ramekins with non stick cooking spray.
- Blend: Add all of the ingredients except for the chocolate chips into the blender. Blend for 60 seconds or until the mixture is combined.
- Divide: Divide the batter between the two ramekins and sprinkle with chocolate chips.
- Bake: Bake for 25 minutes or until the tops look set. Let them rest for 10 minutes then dig in! You can serve them with a drizzle of peanut butter or maple syrup if desired!
Tips for Success
- Make sure to blend the ingredients well! The difference between baked oatmeal and baked oats is the fluffy texture. The key to getting that perfectly soft, fluffy texture is by blending the ingredients in a high-powered blender if possible!
- To make more than two servings, double or triple the recipe and bake in a loaf pan or multiple ramekins!
- If you don’t have any ramekins on hand, you can make them in a muffin tin instead! They will only make a few muffins, though.
