You Will Love Single Serve Baked Oatmeal

Whether or not you’ve tried one of my classic baked oatmeal recipes or the trendy TikTok baked oats I know you’re going to love the variety of single-serving baked oatmeal recipes I came up with as well (including this one)! Here’s why:

  • Easy to prep – it’s so simple to prep. Just mix all of the ingredients and bake!

  • Single serving – don’t worry about having leftovers for the week and just make what you’re craving NOW!
  • Healthy and filling – this single serve baked oatmeal is packed with fiber. You can add protein powder to make it even more satisfying.

Ingredients measured out to make strawberry chocolate chip baked oatmeal.

Here’s What You Need

Here’s everything you’ll need to make this recipe!

  • rolled oats – I recommend using rolled oats because they are less processed and give a good texture to the baked oatmeal.
  • dairy-free milk – I like to use unsweetened almond milk but any dairy-free milk will work.
  • chia seeds – optional but I like to add for extra fiber and healthy fats. Read all about the health benefits of chia seeds here.
  • baking powder – helps the baked oatmeal rise and lightens the texture of the baked oatmeal.
  • cinnamon – this adds a subtle hint of flavor and sweetness. I love adding it to my baked oatmeal recipes.
  • maple syrup – add a hint of sweetness with maple syrup. You can use another liquid sweetener if you prefer.
  • sea salt – just a pinch to bring all of the flavors together.
  • mashed banana – adds moisture, a subtle flavor and sweetness to this baked oatmeal.
  • chopped strawberries – the star of the show! I like using fresh strawberries, but frozen will work in a pinch.
  • chocolate chips – I like to mix in chocolate chips and top with a few extra for good measure. I’m currently hooked on Lily’s chocolate chips because they’re low in sugar.

What if I Need More Than 1 Serving?

Need more than one serving?! You’re in luck! I created this strawberry banana baked oatmeal recipe that makes 6 servings. This recipe is great if you want to bake once and eat healthy all week long! I also have an easy recipe for chocolate chip baked oatmeal cups that are an awesome portable breakfast option. You could easily add strawberries to that recipe if you wanted!

If you're cooking for a crowd or want to meal prep, make my strawberry banana baked oatmeal! It's very similar and makes six servings.

Can I Make It Ahead of Time

This recipe is best enjoyed right after baking! It does take about 35 minutes to prepare, but much of that time is hands-off cooking time!

If you want to try prepping it in advance you can combine all the ingredients, place in a covered container and then transfer to the baking dish and bake the next morning. I haven’t fully tested this method, but it should work just fine.
