Baked Oatmeal

Good morning everyone! We thought we’d switch things up a bit this week and do a simple breakfast recipe. This one is delicious, nutritious, and great for anyone who needs a quick meal or snack on the go. Oatmeal tends to be a love or hate thing for a lot of people, and more often than not we think that has to do with the texture! So by baking our oatmeal, it makes it more solid and bread like. Also since the base is plain, you can customize it however you want to suit your tastes. We have a few ideas listed in the recipe below, but feel free to play around and do what you like! Have fun!

Baked Oatmeal

(makes 1 loaf with a 6″ loaf or cake tin, or 6 muffins)



– 1 cup GF rolled oats (not quick oats)

– 1 egg/ flax egg 

– 1-2 tbsp sweetener of your choice 

– ½ teaspoon baking powder

– Pinch of salt

– ¾ cup dairy free milk

-Vanilla extract (optional)


Flavorings (your choice!): 

Banana Bread Flavor: 

– Cinnamon (to taste)

– ½-1 ripe banana

– chopped seeds or nuts, or even chocolate chips if you like

Double Chocolate Flavor:

– 1-2 tbsp cocoa powder 

– Chocolate chips (amount to your liking) 

Fresh Berry Flavor: 

– ¼ cup of fresh or frozen fruit of your choosing (we recommend blueberries, raspberries, and cherries!)

Cinnamon Apple Flavor: 

-¼ cup diced apples

– cinnamon to taste

Coffee Cake Flavor: 

-¼ -½ tsp of cinnamon and a tiny pinch of nutmeg

-cinnamon, brown sugar, and oat flour streusel to crumble on top (see here for crumble recipe) 



Preheat your oven to 350°F, and prepare your ramekins, cake tin, or muffin tin by lining with parchment, or greasing with oil/butter

In a blender combine all your ingredients (except any whole fruits, nuts/seeds, and chocolate chips) and blend until smooth. If your blender is a little weak or a little small, you can blend the oats into a flour first and then add the rest of the ingredients bit by bit

Now gently mix in the whole fruits, seeds or nuts, or chocolate chips (whatever you are using) into your batter 

Pour into your prepared baking tins, and place in the oven. If you are doing a version that has a crumble or streusel on top, make sure to sprinkle that on top before going in the oven!

Bake for 20-30 minutes, or until a cake tester/toothpick inserted in the center comes out dry 

If you don’t mind your baked oatmeal being soft, feel free to eat it right out the oven (if you can handle the heat!). Otherwise let it cool for a bit and set before serving
