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.

      I made these in the microwave (3.5 min) because at the last minute I realized the 8oz dishes I had weren’t oven safe. Turned out perfect for me. Blended in a food processor. Delicious, thanks!

      I have made this 2 times. In the dish used in this recipe. Both were failures. The toothpick came out clean but when I cut into them, the knife came out gooey. I even added 3 minutes to the baking time. A big disappointment 😞

      1. Brittany Mullins
        April 5, 2021 AT 10:13 am

        Oh no! So sorry to hear that, Daniel. Did you change anything about the recipe?

      Hi, love the recipe. Will it be possible to blend this using an immersion blender as I only have that?

      1. Brittany Mullins
        March 26, 2021 AT 10:34 am

        Yes, I think an immersion blender should work great!

      Do you have a “healthier” version with lower carbs, lower sugar and lower fat? Sounds yummy!

      How is this supposed to be “healthy one portion thing” when it’s beyond 500 calories, with 70 g of carbs and more than 20 g of fat ? 😥😳

      Hi, I was just wondering if you could swap the almond milk for soy milk?

      1. Brittany Mullins

        Totally! Any type of milk will work!

      I have been adding 25g of PEScience snickerdoodle and just a splash more almond milk- delicious!

      I made this recently (without egg) and fell in love. I was thinking of making it again, in a muffin pan to make smaller portions and have them as a breakfast or even a snack, but was wondering – do these freeze well?

      1. Brittany Mullins
        March 17, 2021 AT 5:48 pm

        So glad you loved this recipe!! You can totally freeze this recipe. That’s a great idea to make them in a muffin pan to make smaller portions. Let me know how it turns out for you!

      Love this!! I live alone and when I do a batch of Baked Oatmeal I eat the same breakfast for a whole week – a single serving like this is perfect for some variation. Would love to see more versions of this!

          I just wondered, is there any way to include some protein powder in this recipe? Maybe as like a chocolate version?

          1. Brittany Mullins
            March 19, 2021 AT 11:47 am

            Yes! You can add 1-2 TBSP of protein powder to this recipe. You might need to add a dash more liquid, but it should turn out just fine!

        Totally!

      Have made this a few time. I cut the peanut butter in half and use slightly less chocolate chips. I split it in half for me and my daughter to share. She is 4 and ate her entire half today! Super yum!

      I wanted to make 4 of these to have leftovers, but the yield ended up being 8! No complaints here! My husband liked them, too!

      1. Brittany Mullins
        March 15, 2021 AT 3:20 pm

        I’m glad you’ve been enjoying this recipe, Jules! Did you just times everything by 4 and it turned out to be 8 servings?

      March 13, 2021 AT 10:28 am

      This was SO good! Could easily become two servings or meals. It took awhile but it was definitely worth the wait. Looked exactly like the picture. It was so good I couldn’t stop to take one.

      Love this recipe! But I’ve had to put it in the oven for around 45 mins, either not putting it highl enough (from middle) and need to increase the temp. But I don’t mind 🤤

      Wow! I already loved baked oatmeal for their meal prep ease but this one is amazing! I love the texture, it was super easy to put together (I doubled the recipe but next time will make more) and most importantly it tastes great! Thanks for another winner.

      Let me preface this by saying I can’t cook, and I certainly can’t bake. But this recipe was SO simple and easy to follow that even I could do it. Yummy and so easy to make! It tasted like cake for breakfast. A total win all around.

      Can’t wait to try more of your recipes 🙂

      March 7, 2021 AT 11:36 am

      For some reason I had to bake mine in the oven for much longer and it barely rose at all. The only changes I made to the recipe was using cashew butter instead of peanut butter and I added just a touch of honey. Everything else was the same. Not sure what went wrong ☹️

      1. Brittany Mullins
        March 7, 2021 AT 11:52 pm

        Oh no!! So sorry to hear that. Did you add the baking powder? And did you use an egg or skip it? How long did you end up having to bake it for?

    25. Lauren
      March 6, 2021 AT 10:45 am

      Loved this! A healthy breakfast that tastes like you’re eating a chocolate chip muffin for breakfast. My boyfriend also loved it. Will definitely be a weekend staple.
