I tested this with so many different kinds of protein powder and my favorite one ended up being a simple vanilla flavored protein. The problem I found with many of the protein powders is that they’re all SO sweet and it really threw off the flavor of the oats.

So I definitely recommend finding a plain/ vanilla protein powder to use in this recipe.

This recipe is very similar to my original Baked Oatmeal recipe that I published a couple of years ago. That video got millions of views on Instagram and is still one of my favorite recipes to this day!

Ingredients in this simple protein oats:

  • Old fashioned oats
  • Banana (just half of one!)
  • Protein powder of choice (again- I definitely recommend using a plain or vanilla flavored only)
  • Chia seeds
  • Milk of choice (or even water works ok)
  • Frozen fruit of choice for topping

To make it, you simply mash the banana directly in the dish you’re baking it in. Then mix in the remaining ingredients and top with the berries and optional coconut. From there all you have to do is wait 20 minutes for it to bake in the oven!

I like to pop this in the oven before I start my home workout. I set a timer and take a quick break to get it out of the oven and then it cools while I finish my workout. The timing of it all work out perfectly!

This Protein Baked Oats is the perfect single serve breakfast that’s got added protein and is so simple to make!


Units Scale
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1/2 cup of old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup milk of choice
  • 1 tablespoon of chia seeds
  • 2 tablespoon of protein powder (you can use a full scoop as desired but I found that it made the oats just a little too gritty for my liking)
  • 1/31/2 cups of frozen berries
  • Shredded coconut for topping optional


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees F and lightly grease a small ramekin.
  2. Mash your banana directly in the baking dish. Top with the oats, chia seeds, protein powder and milk. Mix to combine.
  3. Sprinkle on the frozen fruit and shredded coconut. You *can* mix those into the oats but I like to leave them just sitting on the top.
  4. Bake for 20-22 minutes until the oatmeal is set. Serve immediately with a drizzle of maple syrup and ENJOY! It’s also delicious with a little bit of nut butter mixed in after baking YUM!


  • You can use any kind of berries for this but I really love it with the mixed berries!
  • Jam or preserves would also be delicious on top in place of the berries.
