Calling all people with major sweettooths who want to eat healthy! I knew it couldn’t just be me. I absolutely love my sweets, but sugary treats don’t have much of a place in a routine where I’m trying to stay healthy. Here’s where baked oats enters the chat. Baked oats take the sweetness of well, eating cake for breakfast and makes that a reality with practical and healthy ingredients. Can I get a heck yeah? So, with these recipes, you can basically eat cake for breakfast when you’re making these single serve baked oat recipes. I know, it’s hard to believe that can be healthy, but check out the recipes below and you’ll be sweetly surprised!
Raspberry Chocolate Baked Oats
Raspberries to me are nature’s candy. They’re so delicious and also so good for you! If you’re looking to add some to your diet, why not make it sweet? Tossing raspberries and chocolate chips into an oat and milk-of-your-choice base can elevate your breakfast into tasting like dessert. The best part though? It’s a great way to wake your body up and start your day!
Cinnamon Roll Baked Oats
If I had the time and ability, I’d wake up early in the morning (or prep at night) to make homemade cinnamon rolls at least once a week. They’re delicious, soft, and ooey gooey. What if I told you that you can get all that goodness in baked oats too? Bit of a healthier breakfast than some cinnamon rolls, BUT just as tasty! Adding a good dose of cinnamon and vanilla to your oat blend does the trick, but if you’re looking to take it that one step further, consider throwing on a “frosting” of your choice, I prefer cashew milk yogurt because it’s creamy and sweet.
Pineapple Upside-Down Baked Oats
I know I keep saying that everything is my favorite… but Pineapple Upside-Down cake is my favorite. Now I can have it for breakfast! Using your traditional baked oats base, adding pineapple juice, pineapple chunks and one (or a few) Maraschino cherries can transform your baked oats into this tropical delight of a breakfast. I hope you like these as much as I do.
Strawberry Shortcake Baked Oats
I love when fruits take over baked oats, and with these Strawberry Shortcake Baked Oats, you’ll see all the hype of a fruit and cream- filled baked oats recipe. Adding coconut cream can also add in a little sweetness to counteract more tart strawberries. It’s to die for.
Blueberry Lemon Baked Oats
Lemon goodies have been peeking their nose into breakfast time for ages now, and I’m grateful for it! But let’s let the bright flavors shine in this blueberry lemon baked oats recipe. Fresh lemon juice might require a bit of zest to get those flavors flowing, but lemon extract can also do the trick in getting a fantastic lemony flavor. Then counteracted by the blueberries, it’s *chef’s kiss.*
“Funfetti” Baked Oats
With vanilla extract (or protein powder) and sprinkles, you can make some bland baked oats into something legendary: “Funfetti” baked oats. If not the rainbow appearance of this baked oat recipe, the nostalgic flavors should be enough to convince you to make them for yourself. (You won’t regret it!)
