This Healthy Baked Oatmeal recipe is the perfect breakfast on the go. I like making this in the beginning of the week, portioning it out into squares and reheating in the morning. I like to serve the oatmeal warm with almond milk and a scoop of peanut butter. You can also top it with bananas, yogurt or berries.

The baked oatmeal comes out crisp along the edges and top and soft and gooey on the inside.

How to make baked oatmeal

  • In a medium bowl combine the oats, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves, set aside.
  • In a large bowl combine eggs, vanilla, almond milk, coconut oil and apple sauce.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Pour into the prepared pan and bake at 350 F for 30-40 minutes or until the top is golden brown and is set.
  • Remove from the oven and allow it to cool before slicing.

How to make baked oatmeal healthy

I lightened up this Healthy Baked Oatmeal by substituting coconut oil and apple sauce in place of the butter. I also substituted almond milk in place of full fat milk and reduced the sugar.

To amp up the health benefits even more you can add in flax seeds, chia seeds or hemp seeds to the oatmeal.

You can also substitute the chocolate chips for fresh fruit. Blueberries or strawberries would be awesome in this!

    This looks amazing! Will definitely be giving this a go. Your recipes are honestly better than anyone else’s recipes I’ve tried (either blogs or well known celebrity chefs). You need your own cooking show!

      Hi Michelle,

      I typically cut it into 9 squares. A serving is one square.

      I hope you enjoy! Have a great day!

      Hi Rene,

      Apple sauce makes a pretty good substitute for eggs in this recipe. Just add 1/2 of a cup in place of the 2 eggs. I hope you enjoy! Thank you for commenting!
