Healthy Baked Oatmeal

Baked Oatmeal

I am so excited about this healthy baked oatmeal recipe! Who doesn’t love the combination of peanut butter, banana, and chocolate chips baked into an ooey-gooey fiber rich breakfast bake? It’s a super simple one-bowl recipe and can easily be made ahead of time, though we do think it is SO TASTY straight from the oven too. This oatmeal bake is based off of our popular Oatmeal Cups recipe so it has the perfect almond milk (or milk of choice) to oats ratio.Baked Oatmeal

I’ve been using Enjoy Life Foods chocolate for YEARS! All their products are specially made to be free from gluten and the 14 most common food allergens – wheat, peanuts, tree nuts, dairy, casein, soy, egg, sesame, sulfites, lupin, mustard, fish, shellfish & crustaceans. They even make all of products in a special allergy friendly facility, which is pretty great. Plus, the chocolate is delicious! I love the dark chocolate chips and the mini chocolate chips for all of our baking, especially this oatmeal!

I find Enjoy Life Chocolate in all of my major grocery stores which is a huge time saving bonus, and you can use their easy Store Locator to find stores near you! PLUS, here’s a special coupon for $2 off their baking chocolate – you can print and use in-store!

Baked Oatmeal Ingredients

Will baked oatmeal freeze?

When it comes to freezing baked oatmeal, you simply make up the baked oatmeal recipe, let it cool, and freeze it!

How do you make baked oatmeal

  • Combine your dry ingredients.
  • Add in your wet ingredients.
  • Pour into your greased, or lined with parchment paper, baking dish.
  • Bake!

Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Baked Oatmeal

What Oats Should You Use

  • Use rolled oats, not quick cooking oats. If gluten-free, make sure you buy gluten-free rolled oats.
  • Can you bake instant oatmeal? The short answer is not really! Instant oatmeal is different than regular oatmeal because it is thinly cut, processed and flavored. They don’t lend the same structure to baked goods as regular oats or quick oats!

P.S. You can sub out for your favorite nut butter here, or to make it nut-free use sun butter.

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees and grease an 8" x 8" oven-safe dish. If desired, prepare a parchment sling by cutting out a piece of parchment paper slightly larger than the pan (for easy removal of bake).
  2. In a large bowl mash bananas until they are smooth. Add eggs and whisk to combine. Then add peanut butter, maple syrup, almond milk, oil, apple sauce and vanilla until fully combined.
  3. To the wet ingredients add oats, baking powder, chia, salt and chocolate chips and mix until fully combined.
  4. Pour into prepared 8"x 8" dish and bake for 40 minutes, until the center is just barely firm.
  5. Scoop or cut and serve warm as is or with almond milk, or cool and slice into 9 square portions.

    This one is one of my family’s favorites! We enjoy your recipes in a regular basis in our home. But what a gift of grace they have been for our new current COVID season They have helped me stay grounded in my commitment to my “maintenance” and our family health. Your work and effort has been a virtual friend in a difficult time and I am grateful.

  90. Nancy H says:

    I substituted some items as we are COVID home! I used coconut mana since I didn’t have applesauce and subbed 1/3 c. coconut flakes for some of the oats. First time for baked oats ~ interesting. It feels healthier than cookies or a bar, so I’m a fan. I also used honey as I didn’t have maple syrup. I’m thrilled to have a different meal and am sure I will enjoy ALL week. It’s a pretty big serving!!

    Hi Lexi! These bars sound soo good! I want to make them, but as I never use or buy apple sauce I was wondering it I can substitute the apple sauce with a shredded apple for ex?
    Thx 😊 Tina

    • Lexi's Clean Kitchen says:

      It will change the moisture level and texture slightly. You can try it, but it alters the recipe in a structural sense!

  92. Micaela says:

    I will try this tomorrow morning for my toddler. Can I use honey instead of maple syrup? If so, whats the ratio. Many thanks in advance
