Is Baked Oatmeal Healthy?

Yes! Baked oatmeal is a great healthy breakfast option. There is a great balance of macronutrients – healthy fats from the egg and coconut oil, fiber from the oats, and lean protein from the egg.

How Long Does Baked Oatmeal Last in the Fridge?

Baked oatmeals lasts 4-6 days in the fridge. If I’m not serving it to a group of people for brunch, I love making one batch on Sunday and having balanced breakfasts the rest of the week. This is a great recipe for meal prep!

Description

This strawberry banana baked oatmeal recipe is the perfect make ahead breakfast. Strawberry, banana and chocolate… what could be better? 


Ingredients

  • 2 cups rolled old-fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 cups almond milk
  • 1 large egg (or 1 Tablespoon ground flaxseed)
  • 2 Tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 ripe bananas (1 mashed and 1 sliced)
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh quartered strawberries (divided)
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips (divided)
  • cooking spray
  • additional strawberries, bananas and milk for serving

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. Spray an 8-inch square baking dish with cooking spray. In a large bowl, mix together the oats, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Add in milk, maple syrup, egg, coconut oil, vanilla and mashed banana. Stir well to combine.
  3. Gently fold in 1 cup strawberries, 1/2 of your banana slices and 1/8 cup of chocolate chips.
  4. Carefully pour oatmeal mixture into the prepared baking dish.
  5. Scatter the remaining strawberries, banana slices and chocolate chips on top.
  6. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until the middle of the bake is set (it might still be slightly wet from the strawberries but that’s okay). The top/edges will be golden. Remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes. This will allow the baked oatmeal to set a bit more. Portion and serve. Top with additional fresh strawberries, banana and a splash of milk.

Notes

  • Storage: This bake is great for meal prep it. Store it in the fridge in a sealed container for up for 4-6 days.
  • To reheat: Add a portion to a microwave-safe bowl and heat until warm throughout, about 1-2 minutes. Top with extra almond milk, if desired.

  2. I just want to thank you so much for this recipe!!! I’m guilty because I have actually enjoyed this recipe for over a year now and I only now got myself to write a review😖 Now that we got that out of the I have to say that this is the baked oatmeal that got me to explore not only other oat recipes but healthy recipes in general!! I absolutely love everything about this recipe❤️❤️❤️ And of course I strongly recommend it!!

    • Ahh this makes me so happy to read, Alexandra! I’m so glad you love this recipe and that it got you to branch out to try other healthy recipes. 🙂 I so appreciate you coming back to leave a comment + star rating. The reviews are super helpful to other readers, so I appreciate it!

  3. Brittany has the BEST baked oatmeal recipes! The consistency is always perfect and the recipes have the right amount of sweetness to satisfy my sweet tooth but are still filled with healthy ingredients so I can savor the oats for breakfast.

    • Ahh that makes me so happy to hear, Nicole! I’m so glad you’re loving the baked oatmeal recipes. 🙂 Thanks for coming back to leave a comment + star rating. I so appreciate it!

  4. Super excited to try this but I’m swimming in steel cut oats! Can you sub out the old fashioned oats for steel cut variety? Would you need to increase liquid or baking time?

  5. I am 4 months post partum and went back to work a month ago. These oatmeal bakes have been a life saver. We started with this one and it’s delicious, guilt free, can be made on the weekend and eaten throughout the week. I turned my sister in law onto them and she recently suggested the zuchinni one, that’s on the menu for next week now, she said it’s so tasty and you get veggies in.

    • Ahh yay! That makes me so happy to hear, Joy. I’m so glad you’re loving the baked oatmeal recipes. 🙂 Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment + star rating. It means the world to me!

  6. I made this last week and my entire family loved it! This is definitely going to be a staple once I go back to college 🙂 I do have one question; I’m doing weight watchers and the coconut oil is super high in points so could this be substituted with canola or just omitted entirely?

  7. I only put chocolate chips in 1/4 of it, but that was a mistake. The chocolate chips definitely help make the dish! The rest of the 3/4 of it was just missing that little bit of goodness.

  8. I made this for breakfast this morning and it was so good! It made the house smell so good when it was in the oven. My boyfriend said he would eat this for breakfast every day. We omitted the chocolate chips and subbed butter for the coconut oil and it was perfect. Will definitely make again.

  9. I LOVE this! I made this to prep for breakfast through out the week and it was delicious. Thinking about this oatmeal had me looking forward to each and every morning of the week !

  10. This is so good. This was our first recipe from you and it has kept us coming back and trying more.
    Thank you 😊

  11. Hi Brittany,
    Found this recipe and excited to try it….only I accidentally bought two bags of quick oats and don’t have any rolled oats! Do you have suggestions on how I should adjust the recipe, or is it okay to substitute 1:1?

    Much thanks from a first time oat baker!

  12. Absolutely delicious!! My daughter made this last week and we loved it so much we’re on a mission to work our way through your whole list! Tastes decadent. Love that it’s not. <3

    • Ahh I love it!! So glad you guys are loving the baked oatmeals. 🙂 Thanks for trying them and for coming back to leave a comment + star rating. The reviews are super helpful to other readers, so I appreciate it!

  13. Loved this! Very easy to make while entertaining my 4 month old. This will be on weekly rotation!

  14. This is AMAZING! My husband and I are both obsessed with. I’m on a very restricted diet due to breastfeeding a baby with allergies but this recipe has me enjoying food again. And it was easy enough for me to make with a 4 month old on my hip! Thank you for sharing

    • Ahh that makes me so happy to hear, Angela! I’m so glad this baked oatmeal recipe is a hit! Thanks for trying it and for coming back to leave a comment and star rating. It means the world to me. <3

  15. I made this recipe this morning and it turned out really wet & soggy rather than dry look your picture. The bananas and strawberries were slightly over ripened and I used oat milk instead. What could I do so they come out dry? Would you suggest using more oats?

    • Oh no!! I’m sorry to hear that! How long did you end up cooking it for and did you change anything about the recipe? And did you mix in all the strawberries and bananas or just what was listed in the recipe? It might have just needed more time to cook. The cook time does depend on oven temps since everyone’s is different.

  16. I’ve been trying your recipes and they are great! I want to try this one, but my kiddo has a tree nut allergy. Can I substitute the almond milk with oat milk or regular milk?

  17. This is awesome! Super delicious and works for breakfast or a healthy dessert. Also way more filling than I expected! (I have a huge appetite). .. question: could you substitute monkfruit sweetener for honey or maple syrup in any of these oatmeal bakes?

  18. I haven’t made this recipe yet, but it looks delicious! I was just wondering if I could sub the coconut oil for avocado oil or a light tasting olive oil? My elderly mom has to watch her saturated fats, but I think she’d love this! I wasn’t sure if the liquid oils would work differently in this recipe than the solid-when-cool coconut oil does.

  19. I am so happy I found this recipe! My husband loves a bowl of stove top oatmeal in the morning but I’ve always struggled with it because of the texture. This is perfect! Spongey and fluffy, not slimy and chunky. 😆 I didn’t have choco chips the first day but it was still wonderful, tastes just sweet enough while being healthy. Added choco chips in the microwave the 2nd day and it felt like dessert!

    • Ahh yay!! I’m so glad this baked oatmeal is a hit with you and your husband. Thanks so much for trying my recipe and for coming back to leave a comment and star rating. I really appreciate it!

  20. I love this recipe! I’ve made it twice in two weeks, the second time I doubled the batch and substituted the strawberries for blueberries because that’s all I had in quarantine and it was still delicious! I also didn’t cook it with the chocolate chips but added those into individual bowls / when I reheated bc my husband said he didn’t want chocolate for breakfast 🤣

    We drizzled ours with nut butter when serving and it was so good!! Thank you!

  21. I made your Strawberry Banana Baked Oatmeal yesterday and I have to admit it is absolutely delicious! I am definitely going to try to make more of your receipts they are great! Thank You!

    • Ahh that makes me so happy to hear, Corinna!! I’m so glad you enjoyed this baked oatmeal recipe. Thanks for trying it and for coming back to leave a comment + star rating. It means the world to me! <3

  22. This is so good. Thank you for the recipe. I was never really an oatmeal person till I tried a few of your overnight oat recipes but this is fantastic. Excited to have these recipes when baby number two arrives so I can stock up the freezer and have delicious foods ready to go!

    • Ahh yay!! I love converting non-oatmeal lovers. Haha! So glad you enjoyed this baked oatmeal recipe, Sally. Thanks for trying it and for coming back to leave a comment and star rating. I really appreciate it. <3

  23. I made this with 5 kids this morning. They range in age from 1-9. It was a hit with all of them. Very tasty and filling. I can’t say how it tastes warmed back up because, well, there isn’t any left. My nephew even went around and scraped the pieces of the side of the pan 😂

    • Ahh that makes me so happy to hear, Jess! I’m so glad this baked oatmeal was a hit! Thanks for trying it and for coming back to leave a comment and star rating. I so appreciate it. <3

  24. Super yummy, comforting and easy to whip up. I put in a little less maple syrup than the recipient called for and it was plenty sweet for our taste. Not really a recipe that can be made on a busy morning due to the longer bake time but easily made in advance and reheated. Can’t wait to try the other recipes!

  25. Hi Brittany! I doubled this recipe and baked it in a 13 by 9 pan. Now, I have breakfast for my husband and I for the week. Your recipes are easy to assemble and the end results are always delicious. Thank you.

  26. Absolutely delicious! I make a whole pan for myself to freeze and reheat for breakfasts with almond butter lathered on top! Thank you for an amazing recipe!

  27. This was SOGOOD! I rarely comment on posts (even when I should)- but had to for this one! Great recipe, my three year old loved it too!!

  28. Thank you so much for this recipe! I love making it the night before and baking it in the morning! It works out great! I usually add walnuts and mush both bananas. I use whatever frozen berries i have on hand! I really appreciate that you take the time to help out people by posting easy-to-follow recipes. Thank you!

    • Ahh you’re so welcome! I’m so glad you’re loving this recipe, it makes me so happy to hear. 🙂 Thank you for taking the time to come back and leave a comment and star rating. It’s super helpful to other readers, so I appreciate it!

  29. I made this but mine turned out quite wet and stodgy though it was browned and looked lovely on top, did I do something wrong?

  30. This was really good. I did make a few changes though. I used oat milk and vegan butter because I can’t have dairy. I used blue berries and bananas because that’s all I had on hand. It was good but will make it a little sweeter next time or have strawberries available. Definitely will make again!

    • Yes. All of the baked oatmeal recipes are freezer friendly. I would recommending baking them and then freezing in portions so you can take out a portion at a time when you’re ready to eat them.

  31. A friend made this for a morning gathering and I had to have the recipe!! It was absolutely delicious!! I can’t wait to make it! …maybe my family will get to eat it too… 😆
    She did sub blueberries for strawberries and no chocolate. Amazing!

    • Awww yay!! That makes me so happy to hear. 🙂 You might have to make two batches… one for you and one for your family. haha! I have tons of other baked oatmeals on the blog that you might enjoy too! Some of my favorite fall flavors are apple cinnamon, pumpkin and maple pecan. Definitely let me know if you try any of the other flavors and what you think.

      And thank you for coming back to leave a comment and star rating. I so appreciate it, Leah! The ratings are super helpful.

  32. I made this on Sunday night and I’ve been eating it all week. It is like having dessert for breakfast and I didn’t even add chocolate chips!! I’ve been forcing myself to eat a bowl of plain oatmeal with fruit for breakfast and not enjoying it. This is an amazing alternative. I didn’t have almond milk so I used 1 cup half&half and 1 cup 2%. I also sprinkled cinnamon on top. So delicious. Thanks!

  33. could you skip the oil. i dont like to use this at all when cooking maybe add but more milk would this work

  34. I just prepared for tomorrow. I tried it to see how it tasted and I loved it. Greetings from Puerto Rico.❤️❤️❤️

  35. I made this this morning and OMG was sooooo good. I was wondering when strawberries aren’t in season can you use frozen strawberries? I was worried because their frozen they will hold the water and will it make it soggy? Highly recommend this recipe perfect for one the go.😃

  36. Absolutely delicious! Only difference was I used coconut milk as that’s what I had. I’ve been having this for breakfast every morning this week and it’s really filling – no mid morning biscuit box raids! Second batch currently in the oven for the weekend.

  37. *Heavenly* and so easy! I added 1 teaspoon almond extract and approx 1/2 cup walnuts & it was delicious!! Highly recommend for meal prep and/or when hosting breakfast/brunch.

    • Yes! Once it’s cooled, you can cut it and freeze it for sure. I freeze my baked oatmeal cups all the time. Just make sure it’s in a freezer safe container/bag with as little air as possible.

  38. I made this and it is so delicious! I wasn’t sure if “ripe banana” meant black spotted or yellow…so I mashed up a spotted banana and sliced up a yellow banana and that worked great! Also, I recommend stirring the melted coconut oil into the oat mixture as opposed to the other cold liquids so that it doesn’t harden up from the cold.
    I can’t wait to make this again!

    • Hi Melissa. Ripe banana just means a banana that has ripened and isn’t green. yellow or a few black spots is fine. And great tip about the coconut oil. I’m so glad that you enjoyed this recipe and I so appreciate you taking the time to come back and leave a comment and star rating. Both are super helpful!

    • Yay! So glad you loved it and I totally agree. The chocolate chips make it dessert-like! And thank you so much for coming back to leave a comment and star rating. These comments are so helpful!

  39. I made this on Saturday and I really like it. I toasted a piece today and enjoyed with my coffee. I have a picture of the finished dish out of the oven, but sorry, I’m not very technical with the #’s and the @‘s. 😊 someday, someday.

  40. Really appreciated, information shared was really fantastic, good job, keep sharing and make us aware through your article.

    Thanks For Sharing You ideas.

  41. This was delicious! Made it on a Sunday and had it for breakfast all week. Thank you for the recipe!

  42. This is so delicious! I usually favour normal oatmeal or overnight oats over baked oatmeal but this is spot on! My husband and 4 year old loved it too! Thanks for the recipe.
