Healthy Baked Oatmeal Ingredients

My birthday was a few weeks ago, and while I was initially drawn to the idea of celebrating in pajamas with chocolate cake while watching The Crown on Netflix, somehow a group of friends convinced me to go out.

Although we didn’t get home until after midnight, three people in our group were supposed to run 16 miles Saturday morning as part of marathon training.

For about five seconds, I considered joining to run half of those miles…

Then I remembered the mini chocolate chips in my kitchen pantry and decided staying in with chocolate chip cookie baked oatmeal sounded like a much better option.

Chocolate for breakfast is always a good choice.

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup applesauce, yogurt, or mashed banana
  • 1/4 cup milk of choice
  • 1 1/2 tbsp pure maple syrup, agave, honey, OR pinch uncut stevia
  • 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • handful mini chocolate chips
  • 1-2 tbsp butter or nut butter of choice, or omit for fat-free
  • optional 1/4 tsp cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 380 F. Stir together all ingredients. Pour into a greased or lined small baking pan, loaf pan, oven-safe dish, or two 1/2-cup ramekins. Cook for 20 min, or until firm. I like to then broil for 3 minutes, but you can just bake longer if you’d prefer.

    Boatmeal is making a comeback and I love it. I loved the blueberry baked oatmeal from years ago soooo much, and this one will be amazing. Its remind me of blueberry muffins and chocolate chip muffins

  2. Melissa says

    I LOVE single-serving, unique recipe ideas like these, especially when they include ingredients I already routinely have on hand! Definitely will be making this recipe at some point this week!

  3. Beverly J Day says

    1) you need a “jump to recipe” button.
    2) how can you print this?!

    How long in the microwave? I am not waiting for 20 minutes….

  4. ace says

    Yum! The recipe reminds me of one of my fave overnight oatmeals: oats, milk of choice, applesauce, cinnamon, and a handful of walnuts. I call it my apple pie oatmeal. 🙂

    I need to try this however!

  5. Bronwyn says

    Hi Katie! Under ‘nutritional information’, it says 190kcal for ‘entire recipe’, which looks as if it should include nut butter (according to the list of ingredients). However, just oats and 1tbsp nut butter alone are about 250kcal, excluding the choc chips and sweetener. Unless I misunderstood something, perhaps you should mention that your information doesn’t include nut butter? Sounds delicious either way!

    • Jason Sanford says

      Hi! Looks like the nut butter isn’t included because the recipe says you can leave it out (and it looks to be left out in the video as well).

  6. Amanda says

    Made this with peanut butter and maple syrup- it was delicious. A hit for the whole family. I would include the nut butter or I don’t think it will tastes as much like cookie dough! It really needs some fat.

    • Jason Sanford says

      Speaking for recipes in general, not just Katie’s, optional ingredients are not usually included in calorie labels. Hope that helps!

  7. Tara Martinson says

    I am not sure what is going on but this is the 2nd receipe I have followed and it came out horrible. It fell apart def couldn’t consider this a cookie. What did I do wronggg

  8. Donna says

    Can this be frozen? And if so, is better to freeze before baking or after? I will be using bananas in mine.
    Thank you for your time and recipes. I hate oatmeal but I’m trying to learn to like it so my grandkids will have enough breakfast variety that I can stop bypuying cold cereals loaded with sugar and laced with glyphosate. I think with this recipe even I could eat it with a smile

  9. Mikaela says

    I am OBSESSED with this recipe. I’ve been baking it in a glass bread pan, so it spreads out in that pretty thin. It literally comes out like a soft chocolate chip-banana oatmeal cookie (I’ve also tried the recipe with applesauce and it’s also bomb but I think I like banana the best). I’ve been cooling it for 17 minutes and then broiling it for 3 and it has been coming out perfect. So yummy! You have to try this recipe. This is your sign.

  10. Colleen Silvia says

    I just made this! I used banana and also added protein powder and walnuts. It was delicious, fast and easy. Definitely a keeper!!

  11. Shabana says

    I have made this recipe multiple times. It is a no fail recipe that I usually make for breakfast the day/night before. My favorite breakfast to have! I usually double the ingredients and its enough for me to eat 4 times.

  12. Laurie says

    I am stumped by the calorie count, too. Oats are 190 alone. Syrup is 82, applesauce is 50, chocolate chips are 70 and almond milk is 8. That’s 400 and I didn’t use any nut butter at all! What am I doing wrong?!

    • CCK Media Team says

      Hi Laurie! A half cup of oats is around 150 calories, and optional ingredients are not included in calorie counts unless stated for a recipe. Hope that helps!

      • twi says

        it is not always. On most containers of oats I’m pretty sure a serving is 40 grams- on containers. However, when I weighed out half a cup, it was 50 which means that a full half cup is 190-100, because there is a %20 increase from 150 calories at 40 grams to 50 grams

  13. Mauren says

    This recipe is awesome! I added dried cranberries and baked mine in the air fryer at 390°F for 8 minutes. Very tasty, it’s like having dessert for breakfast!

  14. Claire says

    This was such a yummy breakfast! I used half a banana, and two tbsp of applesauce, baked it in the toaster oven at 375 for 18 minutes, then broiled on high for 3 minutes. I split it in to two servings. Next time I’ll be doubling the recipe!!

  15. Amber says

    Really delicious recipe! The only thing that upset us was the nutrition facts. We did our own math- with using 1 and 1/2 tbsp maple syrup, 1/4 cup chocolate chips and 1 tbsp nut butter it made our recipe 600 calories!! Super disappointed that it wasn’t mentioned in the recipe which sweeteners she used

    • CCK Media Team says

      Hi yes, full nutrition facts for all of Katie’s recipes are always linked under the ingredients/instructions 🙂

  16. Delta d says

    I love this recipe! I make it for breakfast nearly every morning. It is also super good to have for a healthy snack!😁

  17. Noi says

    Delicious! I’ve made it twice now and the texture is surprisingly smooth! I’m wondering how a microwaved version would turn out just for time’s sake hehe… I want to say it’d be like a mug cake but one will have to test it out haha

  18. Brenda says

    Nutrition information is WAY off. I think she means to say there are two servings in this recipe and that is what the nutrition indicates.

  19. Nikki says

    Well….I don’t count calories. I’m a carb counter (I use mama’s diabetic diet. You can have 30-45 carbs per meal. I usually stay in the 20ish range for meals but I can go 45. Always works for weight loss for me!)

    This was really good. Got it right at 43.5 carbs and it was delicious. I used all the recipe ingredients….

    1/2 c oats (150 cal 27 carbs)
    1/4 c Unsweetened applesauce (25 cal 6 carbs)
    1 TBS almond butter (110 cal 2.5 carbs)
    14 grams Lilly’s dark chocolate chips (50 cal 4 carbs)
    Unsweetened vanilla almond milk (11.25 cal 0 carbs)
    1 TSP Truvia baking blend (10 cal 4 carbs)
    Pure vanilla & cinnamon

    My calorie count came to 356.25 if anyone is curious.
    Thank you Katie!🍪🥛


  20. Twi says

    High, I’d like to note that the nutrition information is only with no nut butter and applesauce/yogurt instead of banana, and stevia instead of sugar, and frankly, I think no chocolate chips. Sorry, just had to say it since people might not realize that.

  21. Pam says

    5 stars
    This was so good. Both my husband and I loved it. I left out the honey but put in a full ripe banana instead. I also put in 1/4 of cup yogurt instead of the 1/4 cup of milk.
