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.


  • ¼ cup smooth unsweetened apple sauce
  • 2 tablespoons milk-of-choice
  • 1 egg
  • 23 teaspoons maple syrup (see note)
  • 2/3 cup rolled oats or quick oats (see note)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 11/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 medium carrot, finely grated (about heaping cup)
  • ¼ cup raisins
  • ¼ cup white chocolate chips or ¼ cup chopped pecans


  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF and lightly grease two 8-10 ounce oven-safe ramekins.
  2. Add apple sauce, milk, egg, maple syrup, oats, baking powder, cinnamon and a pinch of salt to a blender. Blend until smooth and creamy.
  3. Stir in the carrot, raisins and white chocolate chips or pecans until combined.
  4. Transfer the batter to the greased ramekins and top with additional carrots, oats and white chocolate chips, if desired.
  5. Bake on the center rack until the baked oats have puffed up and started to pull away from the edge of the ramekin and toothpick inserted comes out mostly clean, about 25-30 minutes.
  6. Serve warm or at room temperature.


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.
