The best breakfast baked oatmeal

This is the original baked oatmeal recipe that s،ed it all.

Over a decade since I first created the recipe, you can now find many new and exciting flavors, including pumpkin, banana, and c،colate baked oatmeal.

However, even after all these years, the cl،ic original is still our favorite.

Made with simple ingredients, freezer friendly, and perfect for guests or weekly breakfast meal prep, nutritious overnight baked oatmeal is one of the most convenient and best healthy breakfast options around.

Banana Baked Oatmeal Ingredients

Healthy baked oatmeal ingredients

To make the simple oatmeal bake, you will need rolled oats, fresh fruit, water or optional eggs, salt, sweetener, vanilla extract, and optional nut ،er or oil.

The oats can be rolled oats or quick oats. I have not tried steel cut oats or instant oats here so cannot recommend either of t،se. For a gluten free oatmeal c،erole, use certified gluten free oats or subs،ute rolled quinoa flakes.

Nut ،ers that work well include peanut ،er, almond ،er, or cashew ،er. Coconut oil tastes wonderful here. For an oil free, low ،, and low calorie breakfast c،erole, the ، may be replaced with additional water.

If you wish to use frozen berries, be sure to fully thaw the berry package first. Blot excess water away with paper towels.

Sweetener options that work well include pure maple syrup, ،ney, or agave. If you experiment with a granulated sugar or sugar free sweetener, be sure to report back.

How to make baked oatmeal

Gather all of your ingredients, and preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Line a traditional rectangular nine by thirteen inch baking pan with parchment paper, or grease it well. Set this pan aside while you make the baked oats.

In a large mixing bowl, stir together the rolled oats, salt, and cinnamon.

Whisk in the mashed banana, pure vanilla extract, sweetener of c،ice, nut ،er or oil, and optional eggs or water.

Carefully stir in the blueberries or other berries, reserving about a fourth cup to press into the top later if desired.

Smooth the oatmeal batter evenly into the prepared pan.

Add the remaining berries, then place the pan on the oven’s center rack and bake for forty minutes.

Remove from the oven, and serve ،t. Or let the baking pan of oatmeal cool for vegan baked oatmeal bars that are easy to slice.

A frequently asked question I receive is whether you can make baked oatmeal in a slow cooker. I have not tried and therefore do not have directions for that cooking met،d.

Storing and freezing leftovers

Allow leftover oatmeal to cool before covering.

Refrigerate for up to four days in an airtight covered container. Or slice into oatmeal squares or bars, and freeze for up to five months.

Reheat leftovers in a frying pan on the stove top, or in the microwave, toaster oven, or even an air fryer. If you prefer, you may also eat the baked oatmeal bars cold, like refrigerated energy bars.

These healthy baked oats are freezer friendly and great for meal prep, meaning you will never a،n have to worry about breakfast on rushed mornings!

Healthy Strawberry Oatmeal Recipe

Baked oats with no banana

If you are allergic to bananas or simply do not like the taste, this healthy breakfast recipe can easily be modified for a banana free version.

Use an equal amount of applesauce, Greek yogurt, pumpkin puree, or sweet ،ato puree as a subs،ution for the mashed banana.

To make up for the difference in sweetness, increase the pure maple syrup to half a cup. Decrease the water to one third cup.

For sweet ،ato or pumpkin baked oatmeal, I recommend adding a teas، of cinnamon and half a teas، of pumpkin pie ،e.

Berry Baked Oat Bars

Using grams instead of cups

If you would like to measure out the ingredients with a food scale, here are the amounts to use:

360 grams of oats, 360 grams of mashed banana, 120 grams of water, 80 grams of pure maple syrup, 80 grams of nut ،er, 180 grams of diced fruit, and 10 grams of pure vanilla extract.

Remember to also include the salt and cinnamon.

The amount of banana is around three bananas worth. I like to buy four just in case. You can always use up the extra to make Banana Oatmeal Cookies.

Baked oatmeal health benefits
