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!

  • So glad you and your granddaughter enjoyed this recipe and were able to bake together! Thank you so much for sharing Eric!

  • You help my family’s breakfast to a new level, I’m thinking about adding some pistachios
    Btw, love your nutrition Information format, easy to understand.

  • Great! I just finished it last night and the result was unexpected, my wife and daughter both liked it, which made me happy. Thanks for your recipe!

  • Hi Sim,

    Unfortunately I have not tried this recipe with steel cut oats so it is hard to say for sure. If you do end up using the steel cut oats they will take about 10 minutes or so longer to cook.

    Hope this helps! Let me know how you make out if you give it a try!

    I have made this recipe every Monday to eat for breakfast during the week since October. It’s now April and somehow I haven’t gotten tired of it! I’ve tried a bunch of baked oatmeal recipes and I love this one because it’s easy to throw together (now takes me less than 15min to make right after waking up on mondays so that feels like an accomplishment), warms up beautifully in the microwave, is filling, tasty, and has the perfect texture. My usual add-ins are chocolate chips and a good handful of shredded coconut (still blends well with the spices, which surprised me at first). I bake in a 9×9 glass dish which means 35min in the oven works every time. The only adjustment I’ve made to this recipe is the order I add ingredients. I’ve found that if you add the melted coconut oil to the liquid ingredients unless you’re super fast at adding the dry ones, the oil cools and hardens at the bottom of the bowl. I mix my dry ingredients together in one bowl and all wet ingredients but the oil in another. When I add the dry to the wet I also add the oil, stir to combine and then add mix-ins. Frozen strawberries and raspberries also work nicely in this!

    Thank you for a great recipe, I literally have it memorized at this point since I make it every week and it’s a great way to start my day!!
