These blended Baked Oats went viral on TikTok and for very good reason! They’re SUPER easy to make, a healthy breakfast, and SO delicious. The taste and texture is just like cake!

Have you seen these #BakedOats trending on social media lately? As most of these things do, it started out as a trend on TikTok and quickly spread.

But this isn’t your average baked oatmeal where you mix oats with liquid and some other ingredients and then bake it. For this oatmeal bake recipe, we’re BLENDING everything together. So, instead of baked oats, you’re basically using oat flour and the end result is something more like CAKE rather than oatmeal and I LOVE these blended baked oats for that!

The first video that I saw sharing these blended baked oats had NO recipe with it (just someone making it but no way of knowing what they were actually putting into them). So, I figured that I would try making my own version of the blended oats recipe and here’s how it turned out:

I haven’t posted *that much* to TikTok yet, but that video is my highest viewed video with 700k views in just 48 hours!

Since people loved it so much and had so many questions about the recipe, I posted another version of it. I figured it would be easiest if I wrote both of the recipes down in an easy to find place for you. Let’s get to all of the delicious details!

What’s in Baked Oats?

As I mentioned, I created 2 different versions of the recipe. One version is very closely modeled after THESE Oat Flour Muffins and is completely vegan. The other version of the blended baked oats uses eggs instead of banana (because SO many people were asking about that). Now that many people have tried both the vegan and egg version, it seems that most people enjoy the banana (vegan) version the most.

Here are the main ingredients in the banana version (which is my favorite!):

  • Old-fashioned oats – One of the questions that I got most often was if different kinds of oats can be used for this recipe. I’ve only tried it with old-fashioned oats, so try quick oats at your own risk. I do not recommend steel cut oats because they are very hard when not cooked and will not blend. Be sure to use certified gluten-free oats, if needed.
  • Milk – Use what you like! I tested this with oat milk, almond milk, and 2% milk. They all worked great!
  • Maple syrup – Several people complained that there was too much maple syrup in this recipe. However, there’s only 1/4 cup for the whole recipe, which is 200 calories. Split between the 4 servings, that’s just 50 calories per serving, which is worth it to me for the nice bit of sweetness it adds. If preferred, you can decrease or omit the maple syrup entirely.
  • Flavorings – A bit of vanilla and cinnamon gives these blended baked oats a warm, cozy flavor. Both are optional additions.
  • Salt, baking powder and baking soda – Helps to make the blended oats bake up fluffy with a bit of rise.
  • Banana – One large ripe banana replaces the eggs to bind all of the ingredients together, add a delicious amount of sweetness, and kind of tastes like banana bread.
  • Nut or seed butter – I really like the flavor that the nut butter or seed butter added to the oats, but you can actually leave this out, if you prefer.

How to Make Baked Oats

Making either version of this blended baked oats recipe couldn’t be easier! Here’s a quick rundown of the process, but for full instructions, reference the recipe card at the bottom of the post.

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees F and grease a small casserole dish. Mine is a unique size of 6×8 but anything close to that will work including a 9×5 bread loaf pan or an 8×8-inch brownie pan (although you might want to slightly alter the baking time depending on your size).
  2. Add all ingredients to a blender MINUS any mix-ins you want to use, like blueberries, chocolate chips or nuts. Blend until creamy and little to no chunks of the oats remain. Stir in berries or anything else you desire.
  3. Pour batter into the greased baking dish and top with any additional mix-ins, as desired. Bake for 20-25 minutes (mine was perfect at 25 minutes) or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

What does it taste like?

This will depend largely on which version that you make.

In my opinion, the vegan version (using a banana) tastes much more delicious and I much prefer that one! It has a texture very similar to cake that’s a little softer (as you’d expect from oatmeal). It’s perfectly sweet and just all around pretty incredible!

While also very yummy, the egg version of the blended baked oats is much denser and kind of spongey. It rises a little more than the vegan version, though.

Customize Your Blended Baked Oats

One of my favorite things about this blended baked oats recipe is that it’s a canvas for whatever flavors you like. Here’s some options for mix-ins and toppings. Which one will you try first?

  • Fruits. Add in about 1/2 cup of blueberries or any other favorite fruit – chopped apples, diced pears, peaches or strawberries.
  • Spices. Instead of cinnamon, try nutmeg, apple pie spice, pumpkin pie spice and/or allspice.
  • Mix-ins. In addition to or instead of adding fruit, try adding a handful of toasted shredded coconut, chocolate chips or nuts.
  • Toppings. Top your baked oats with a drizzle of maple syrup, a dollop of almond butter or peanut butter, yogurt or whipped cream.

Serving Suggestions

These blended baked oats are plenty satisfying on their own, but they also pair well with a variety of breakfast sides. Below are some great options:

  • Hash browns or breakfast potatoes
  • Fresh fruit or fruit salad
  • Yogurt
  • Bacon, sausage, or ham
  • Eggs
