What Are Blended Baked Oats?

If you blend your oats before baking them, you end up with a fluffy, sponge consistency, similar to cake. So you get to make your cake and eat it too… for breakfast!

Do You Blend Oats For Baked Oats?

Do you HAVE to blend your oats? No, you don’t. But you may want to, given the delicious result.

Is Baked Oatmeal Healthy?

Absolutely! Much will depend, of course, on what you add to them, but generally speaking, baked oatmeal is just as healthy as oatmeal you make in a pot.

How Do You Blend Oats?

The best way to blend oats is in a blender or food processor. A high-powered blender will work best for this recipe. But a regular blender works too. Avoid using oat flour in this recipe. While it can work, it’s not quite the same when done. The finished texture isn’t as nice.

Dietary Variations

Vegan – This recipe is naturally vegan as written.

Dairy-free – This recipe is naturally dairy-free as written unless you use dairy milk.

Gluten-free – This recipe is gluten-free if you use gluten-free ingredients. Just be sure they are labeled as such when you buy them.

Optional Topping Ideas

If you want to top up your oatmeal with some extra flavors, here are some ideas:

  • Dark chocolate chips or shavings
  • A drizzle of peanut butter or almond butter (no sugar added)
  • Desiccated coconut
  • A bit of sweetened yogurt
  • A dollop of unsweetened applesauce
  • Chopped nuts such as almond, walnuts, or pecans.
  • A dab of whipped cream or whipped coconut cream

Recipe Variations

Here are some ideas, other than toppings, for ways to change up this oatmeal. To the batter add:

  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 pinch salt (to enhance the sweetness)
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • Substitute the maple syrup for honey
  • Substitute the maple syrup for pure liquid stevia. (Or any sweetener you want to use)

What To Serve With Blended Baked Oatmeal

A great way to balance out the sweetness is to serve this with protein. Try:

  • A good quality bacon
  • A good quality sausage or homemade sausage patties
  • An egg cooked the way you like.
  • Coffee
  • Tea

About The Ingredients

Rolled oats – Do not use quick oats for this. “Old fashion”, “traditional” or rolled are all good oats to use here.

Baking powder – Make sure it’s fresh or on the newer side for it to work properly.

Bananas – You can increase or decrease the banana flavor by how ripe your bananas are. To avoid most of the banana flavor, use green bananas. For a heavy banana flavor, use bananas that are browning, but not yet total, brown mush.

Unsweetened almond milk – You can also use other types of non-dairy milk or even dairy milk if you prefer. Pretty much any milk will work here, though I do not recommend full-fat coconut milk due to its thickness.

Blueberries – The number of fresh blueberries in the recipe is arbitrary. Use as many or as few of them as you wish.

Pure maple syrup – Use the real stuff here. Other pancake syrups are full of unwanted, unhealthy ingredients.

  1. It says to preheat the oven to 400 degrees, but bake at 350; which temperature is correct?
