Healthy 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!

How do you make 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.

Meal Prepping Your Baked Oatmeal

Bake it and eat some immediately and then pack the rest away for later. Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 4 days.

Can You Freeze Baked Oatmeal?

Yes! Once it is fully cooled, store in an airtight container for up to 3 months.

Reheating Instructions

Either defrost overnight in the refrigerator or give it a quick pass in the toaster oven or microwave to heat up!

Whole Tray: To reheat the of tray baked oatmeal, cover and bake at 350°F for about 20 minutes.

Individual Pieces: Bake in your oven or toaster oven at 350°F for 5-10 minutes until warmed to your liking, or reheat in the microwave for about 1 minute.

  1. Great recipe! I used almond butter, doubled the chia seeds and added 1/2 cup of chopped frozen organic berries.

  2. Can this be made without the eggs? All other ingredients, including the Enjoy Life Chocolate is vegan friendly 🙂

  3. This is amazing! What’s the best way to reheat in the morning? I just baked it this evening and want to serve it in the morning. Can I pop it into the oven for a few minutes to reheat or will it dry out? Thanks!

  4. This was such a hit with my family. My kids love it and my husband as welll, plus it freezes really well. My kids were tired of eating eggs for breakfast every morning and they don’t normally eat oatmeal but they will eat this up!
