Baked oats started trending on Tiktok and the internet went crazy! Similar to what happened with the Baked Feta Pasta. There are so many different ways to make these baked oats. You can get as creative as you like with the flavors you choose. Whether you choose to do a chocolate flavor or a vanilla birthday cake, in the end, you will love this amazing creation. All you need is some base ingredients which are oats, bananas, eggs, and milk. You can then get creative with your additions like a hint of peanut butter, some cocoa powder, a bit more sweetness by adding some honey or maple syrup. My kids love this and we make it all the time!

Ingredients You Will Need

  • Rolled Oats: The recipe will call for rolled or old-fashioned oats, but you can also use quick oats. It’s going to get blended anyway.
  • Banana: Use a ripe banana. If you do not like bananas, you can use a small size cooked sweet potato or apple sauce.
  • Milk: any milk will work
  • Egg: to replace the egg for a vegan friendly option, add one tablespoon of groun flaxseed to a bowl and mix it with 3 tablespoons of water.
  • Vanilla: for flavor
  • Nut Butter: almond butter or peanut butter will work. I honestly love the subtle flavor of almond butter in baked oats.
  • Maple Syrup or Honey: you can also use a bit of brown sugar or agave.
  • Baking Soda
  • Salt
  • Dark Chocolate Chips, or Sprinkles-optional.

My Pro Tip

Recipe Tip

  • Oats: Do not use steel-cut oats, You may use quick oats if you don’t have rolled oats. If you don’t have any oats, use 3/4 cup of white, wheat, or oat flour.
  • Egg: There are egg substitutes out there that you can use to replace the egg. But other options that you may consider with ingredients you already have at home are flaxseed, yogurt, buttermilk, silken tofu, and applesauce. replace 1 egg with 1/4 cup of all the above. If you are replacing it with flaxseed, mix 1 tablespoon of flaxseed with 3 tablespoons of water.
  • Milk: Any milk will work in this recipe.
  • Nut butter: We used peanut butter, but you can use any nut butter like almond butter or cashew butter.
  • Sweetener: We used maple syrup, but you can use honey or agave. If you want to use coconut sugar or monk fruit sweetener it’s fine too.

    Oh wow this was so simple to make …. Didn’t have nut butter and I used silicone cupcake mounds and they came out perfectly ( Hubby approved )

    I made this in my Tovala, in the little Tovala tins that the food they send out is made with. (I wash and keep any that aren’t destroyed by their first use lol) – 23ish minutes was perfect (because it isn’t as narrow as a ramekin). So good!

  3. We accidentally blended the chocolate chips in. Do you know how that will affect the baking time/bake?

        They were delicious! My husband actually thinks he prefers them blended in. But the bake and the bake time were the same. Thanks!
