What is Baked Oatmeal?
Baked Oatmeal is a cozy breakfast that is made with old fashioned oats, spice seasonings like cinnamon, milk and a few other ingredients and then baked in the oven. The baked oatmeal comes out soft and cozy and reminds me of a baked oatmeal cookie! The best part is this breakfast can be prepped ahead so you can enjoy all week long.
To make this recipe, you'll need:
- Old Fashioned Oats
- Ground cinnamon
- Baking powder
- Milk (I like to use Unsweetened Almond milk)
- 2 ripe bananas, mashed (about a cup's worth - it's ok if they're a little chunky!)
- Honey (or agave)
- Vanilla extract
- Blueberries (frozen or fresh)
How to Make Blueberry Baked Oatmeal with Bananas
Preheat an oven to 350 degrees and spray an 8 inch baking pan with non stick cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, combine the old fashioned oats, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt until well combined.
In a separate bowl, combine the milk, mashed bananas (it's ok if they're a little chunky), honey, vanilla extra and egg. Mix until well combined.
Slowly pour the liquid ingredients into the bowl with dry ingredients and mix together.
Gently fold in the blueberries.
Pour the mixture into the greased baking pan and bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes until a tooth pick can come out clean and the edges are golden brown - I find mine's usually done in 35 minutes.
Serve and enjoy!

Recipe Tips and Variations
- This recipe can be customized with any fruit you have on hand. We'll occasionally add in Raspberries or diced apples to mix it up!
- To add in a little extra protein, you could add in some walnuts or pecans.
- If you don't have honey on hand, you could swap out at a 1:1 ratio with either agave syrup or maple syrup.
- Baked Oatmeal can also be made into a muffin form! Use the same recipe but pour in to 12 greased muffin cups and bake for 18-20 minutes, or until golden browned.
How to Store Leftover Baked Oatmeal
Leftover baked oatmeal should be stored in the fridge (after completely cooling) for up to 5 days.
To freeze leftovers, make sure baked oatmeal is completely cooled and then wrap with saran wrap (I like to use Glad Press N Seal). Place the wrapped baked oatmeal into a freezer bag and freeze up to 6 months.
To defrost, remove from the freezer and place in the fridge for 24 hours before serving. When ready to serve, unwrap the baked oatmeal and warm up for a minute or two in the microwave and enjoy!

Old Fashioned Oats are best to use in this recipe.
How to Make Baked Oatmeal Without Eggs (Plant Based Version)
