This Healthy Baked Oatmeal is made with pantry staple ingredients and is a healthy and satisfying way to start the day.

Baked Oatmeal is a fun way to switch up your breakfast routine when you get tired of cereal, toast, eggs, or pancakes.

Can we all agree plain oats made with water just aren’t fun?

Baking your oats with yummy ingredients like cinnamon, mashed banana and fresh berries however is fun!

A healthy oatmeal bake is a great breakfast especially if you have picky eaters at home. You can top the oatmeal with Greek yogurt or peanut butter too for a boost of protein!

I love starting my day with oatmeal because oats provide…

  • Fiber
  • Whole Grains 
  • Manganese
  • B Vitamins
  • Antioxidants

What are the best oats to use for oatmeal bakes?

I personally like the quick 1-minute oats best. The bake holds shape really well!

You can use the old-fashioned style oats too for a more hearty texture if you prefer.

Can you freeze healthy baked oatmeal for meal prep?

You bet! Make sure it cools before placing in freezer! I like to cut it up into portions and then heat it up in the microwave the morning I want it!

What other oatmeal recipes are your favorites?

This cozy snickerdoodle cookie oatmeal bowl is a perfect Fall or Winter breakfast.  Or if you’re a fan of overnight oats you’ll be sure to love these pumpkin pie overnight oats!

If you need some protein to go along with your oats I recommend this high protein quinoa scramble – fresh and satisfying!
