Blended Baked Oats

These blended baked oats with banana and chocolate chips make you feel like you’re having cake for breakfast. And they’re so easy! Just pop everything into your blender, bake and enjoy!

When I saw that baked oats were going viral on TikTok I knew it was my time to shine! Baked oatmeal is my jam and I l already have a ton of tasty baked oatmeal recipes here on EBF.

That said, I’ve never made a single-serving baked oatmeal or one that’s blended up, so of course I had to try it!

I tried it this week and whoa, blended oats are delicious and such a fun treat to have for breakfast. They actually remind me of my blender banana pancakes!

Cake or Oatmeal?

These fluffy baked oats make you feel like you’re eating cake for breakfast, but in reality you’re eating a pretty nutrient-rich breakfast made from whole grain oats, an egg and banana.

I’m totally here for it!

Blended Baked Oats Ingredients

As per the usual with my recipes, you only need a few simple ingredients to make blended oats! Here’s what you need:

  • rolled or quick oats – I use Bob’s Red Mill rolled oats. Just be sure to grab gluten-free oats if needed.
  • almond milk – I use unsweetened almond milk, but any milk will work, dairy-free or not!
  • banana – make sure it’s a perfectly ripe banana!
  • egg – I tested this with and without the egg and both versions turned out, the egg-free version just wasn’t as fluffy.
  • maple syrup – this makes the oatmeal bake a bit sweeter and so tasty. Just be sure to grab pure maple syrup, not the artificial stuff.
  • peanut butter – I tested this with both peanut butter and almond butter. Both versions were delish.
  • baking powder
  • cinnamon
  • sea salt
  • chocolate chips – I use Lily’s dark chocolate chips because they are sweetened with stevia and low in sugar.

Substitutions & Notes

Banana – I haven’t tried this recipe without the banana, but I think it would work! You could sub the banana with 1/4 cup applesauce or pumpkin puree. If you make this swap, you may want to add a little extra sweetness.

Maple syrup – You can use any liquid sweetener in place of the maple syrup (honey, coconut nectar, etc) Want to keep it lower sugar? Use stevia or monkfruit maple syrup (which is what I used) or skip the maple syrup all together for no added sugar at all.

Egg – I found that this baked oatmeal held together well with and without the egg. I liked adding it in for extra protein and for the fluff factor, but if you don’t have one on hand or want to keep this vegan or egg-free, you can skip.

Peanut butter – I love the flavor and nutrition that peanut butter adds, but you don’t have to add it! Feel free to swap for your favorite nut or seed butter or skip all together.

How to Make Blender Baked Oats

After I tell you how to make this, you’re going to see why this took TikTok by storm… it’s SO easy!

  1. Blend – Blend all of the ingredients together except the chocolate chips. Stir in chocolate chips after blended.
  2. Bake – Pour batter into a greased ramekin and bake at 350ºF for 25 minutes and enjoy!

Helpful Tips

  • Use a high powered blender! To get the fully blended, cake-like oatmeal, make sure you’re using a high powered blender. I love my Vitamix!
  • You can double (or triple!) the recipe. This is a single-serve recipe but you can definitely multiply the ingredients and make multiple servings at once if you’d like!
  • How do you store it? If this lasts you longer than one serving, I’m impressed! I couldn’t put this down. To store, let cool and then store in an airtight container for up to one week.
  • What type on baking dish to use? I used an 8 oz mini Le Creuset, but any 8 oz oven-safe dish will work.
  • Can you make this in microwave? I have a feeling this would work in the microwave, but I haven’t tested it. I would assume you’d need to microwave it for 2-3 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
  • Can I use oat flour? When blending the mixture you’re essentially making oat flour so I think it should work just fine. I would use a scant 1/2 cup of oat flour instead of the 1/2 cup oats for this recipe.

      These were amazing! I made them in the morning after finding your recipe the other night and they came together so quick!
      I opted out for the sweetener and had placed some chocolate chips on top and they were great!
      I also used a muffin tin and they came out great, thank you!

      This sounds great, especially for kids! What size ramekin did you use? And have you tried making it in a muffin tin?
      Thanks for all the great meal ideas!

        I used an 8 oz ramekin. I haven’t tried making it in a muffin tin, but I would imagine that would be just fine!

      So easy and oh so good! I’ve been doing overnight oats and today I whipped this up and moved to my warming crockpot on my work desk, put 1/3 cup blueberries in there too. Will be making again!!

      I love this recipe so much! And my toddler gobbles it up which is the best part. I’ve tripled and quadrupled the recipe and it turns out great every time.
