Single Serving Baked Oatmeal – 4 Ways

Here’s how to make individual portions of baked oatmeal with four fun flavor variations: strawberry chocolate chip, blueberry, apple cinnamon and banana nut.

As you know, I am a full blown oatmeal lover. I’ve shared countless overnight oats recipes, traditional oatmeal recipes, baked oatmeal recipes and now I wanted to share single serving baked oatmeal!

Four bowls of baked oatmeal.

I love making a big batch of baked oatmeal as meal prep for the week, but sometimes I just want one serving of the flavor I’m craving! These are super simple to make and take no time at all… I can see myself treating myself to these single serve baked oatmeals quite often!

How to Serve Baked Oatmeal

I love eating baked oatmeal on it’s own but you could absolutely pair with more options for a full breakfast spread. Here’s what I would serve with baked oatmeal:

      When the calorie count says “without toppings”, does this mean the bare oatmeal recipe without the fruit/nuts/chocolate added? Or do they all have similar nutrition facts?

      I just made the strawberry chocolate chip one. I reccommend you using a thinner container when you bake it, because i used a traditional glass container out of my cupboard. It is too deep i think, so i had to bake it for MUCH longer. I LOVED this recipe- will definitely make this one of my comfort meals. Super easy to throw together, you just need enough time to bake it.

        Yay, I’m glad this recipe worked for you, Vivian! Sorry to hear you had issues with baking time, maybe your oven isn’t getting hot enough?

      These were ridiculously easy and so satisfying! Thank you for this springboard for me to jump off of. I’m going to use this as a base and just go nuts with flavors! I work from home and it’s cold out, so a single serving hot breakfast is heaven right now. No egg, no messes, so easy! Thank you!

      Excellent recipe! I used an entire apple in a 2 serving dish and tossed in a few pecans and blueberries. I like that it doesn’t call for an egg. My kind of recipe.

      Hey! Can you make the batter the night before and bake in morning? Thanks 🙂

        Hey Jaime, I’m not sure if I would because the batter might soak up too much of the liquid overnight.
