If you’ve seen that viral Tiktok baked oats recipe, you know what’s coming! These Carrot Cake Blended Baked Oats are like cake for breakfast but made healthy. Oats are blended up with a few other healthy ingredients, and then baked up with carrots and raisins to make for the most delicious way to start your day.
Not all oats are gluten-free, so be sure to look for gluten-free certified oats if you need them. Old-fashioned, rolled oats or quick oats all work here. Steel-cut oats don’t work well in this recipe.
Two teaspoons of maple syrup is just barely sweet, and an extra teaspoon makes it a bit more cakelike.
Want to make this without the egg? We tested this with a “flax egg”, made from 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed and 2 tablespoons almond milk. The baked oatmeal came out virtually the same. To make the flax egg, add the flaxseed to the milk and let it “gel” together for about 15 minutes before using.
Leftover baked oats will keep at room temperature for about 3 days. You can reheat in a toaster, if desired.
