A Trio of Baked Oatmeals

A trio of baked oatmeal that I have worked on of late. Two are vegan, the third has a vegan option included. The first two are smaller batches, a single breakfast each. If you have a large appetite you may find yourself eating 2 servings. The third recipe is 4 large servings, for smaller appetites you can cut it down to 6 to 8 servings.

Banana Bread Baked Oatmeal

Ingredients:

  • 1½ cups old-fashioned oats
  • 2 Tbsp semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¾ cup mashed bananas, about 2 small
  • ¾ cup unsweetened almond milk
  • ¼ cup raw almond butter
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp fine sea salt

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375°, lightly oil or spray 3 oven safe ramekins or bowls.

Mix the oats, chips and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl. Whisk the remaining ingredients together, add to dry and stir. Divide between the ramekins and bake for 2o minutes. Let cool a bit before serving or cool and refrigerate for later. Reheat for about a minute in a microwave.

Makes 3 ramekins.

  1. These sound wonderful! Just have to decide which one to try first! Thanks so much for sharing!!

  2. Yum! Thanks – trying to get the kids to be more enthusiastic about oatmeal, surely one of these will help. :-)

    This looks great! I love all the options for flavors! I dont have small individual baking containers. do you think any of these might work in an 8×8 glass pan? I think my kids would looove any of these! :)

    • Do you have any custard dishes? For the 3-4 serving ones I’d use a small casserole – although you could do an 8×8 – just watch the baking. Or! You can do it in a muffin pan and get more minis :)

  4. I made the banana oatmeal one (the 1st one listed) the other day for my kids. IT WAS AWESOME!!! :) I just posted our findings on my blog and linked to your website. Thank you for sharing. It was a nice change for breakfast.
