All the best baked oatmeal recipes in one place, with a flavor for every season and occasion! These recipes are perfect for meal prep and so delicious… you’ll want to try them all.
I can’t believe I’ve been sharing one baked oatmeal recipe a month for over a year! I’ve had so much fun coming up with creative flavors and you love making them so it’s a win, win!
I honestly LOVE all types of oatmeal (and I have a ton of oatmeal recipes here on EBF), but baked oatmeal is definitely one of my favorite ways to enjoy oatmeal. Here’s why:
While baked oatmeal recipes don’t get much easier, there are some pro tips.
The perfect ratio – Customize your own baked oatmeal but make sure you keep the ratio of liquid to oats the same. For most recipes you’ll use 1 part oats to 1 part liquid. I prefer to use unsweetened almond milk, oat milk or coconut milk but any milk works!
Make it vegan – All of my baked oatmeal recipes either call for an egg or a flaxseed egg to bind the dish together. To make a flaxseed egg, mix 1 Tablespoon of ground flaxseed with 3 Tablespoons water and let sit for 5 minutes until the mixture thickens a bit.
Just mix and bake – One of my favorite things about baked oatmeal is that you simply mix all of the ingredients in one bowl and then bake! Super simple and delicious.
One question I get asked often is if you can prep baked oatmeal ahead of time (the night before) and then bake it the next morning. I’ve tried it a couple times and it does work, but I don’t recommend it because the oats absorb quite a bit of the liquid in the fridge overnight. If you want to prep baked oatmeal ahead of time, it’s best to prep it and bake it at the same time. Once the oatmeal has cooled you can cover and place in the fridge and then reheat the whole thing before serving the next day. All this said, I think it would be fun to create an overnight baked oatmeal that can be prepped the night before, especially for holiday mornings so I’ll work on this! 🙂
But, if you do want to have all the ingredients ready to go so there’s less prep in the morning, here’s what I recommend:
