Strawberry Shortcake Baked Oatmeal:

Also, it will make your house smell amazing while it’s baking!

I’m not sure how it’s been over two years since I last posted a baked oatmeal for one recipe.

The last one was back in 2012: Single Serving Reeses Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Baked Oatmeal (which is a huge reader favorite).

Single Serving Strawberry Shortcake Baked Oatmeal

You can prepare this baked oatmeal recipe the night before if you’re short on time in the mornings, or you can make a bunch at once and freeze them for a later date. But, pretty much, you will want to eat this as soon as it comes out of the oven.

(See the bite taken out in the photos… I couldn’t resist!)

Strawberry Shortcake Baked Oatmeal

(Makes a single serving! If you’re feeding a family, try my larger-serving baked oatmeal recipe instead.)

  • 1/3 cup mashed strawberries (measured after mashing) (80g)
  • 2 tbsp milk of choice (30g)
  • 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp oil OR more milk of choice OR nut butter of choice (15g)
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats, gf if desired (50g)
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • sweetener, such as 1 tbsp maple syrup or pinch stevia
  • optional: cinnamon, shredded coconut, chocolate chips, etc.

Grease a 1-cup ramekin or oven-safe dish (or two half-cup ramekins) and set aside. Stir together the liquid ingredients, then add all remaining ingredients and stir again. Pour into the prepared dish, then place in a cold oven. Immediately turn the heat to 380 F. Bake 28 minutes or until firm. (You can broil for the last minute if desired.) Eat from the bowl, or go around the sides with a knife and pop out the baked oatmeal cake! Top with either Homemade Reddi-wip (linked under the second photo in this post) or whipped topping or coconut butter or ice cream of choice.

    I love, love, love your baked oatmeal recipes! I’ve made them on a regular basis for the last year or two. I like to scale it up and make a big batch (I have mini loaf pans and one of those divided lasagna pans that works nicely), then freeze them so I always have yummy breakfasts and snacks available. 🙂 I think my favorite is a variation on the Irish soda bread flavor where I use cranberries instead of raisins and add sliced almonds. The choc PB one is delicious, too, but I usually add PB on top of the other flavor when I eat it. This strawberry version sounds awesome! I’ve thought sometimes it would be nice to have a savory flavor to change things up, since I always make them with dried fruit. I know using all oil (no applesauce) and cutting back on (or eliminating?) the sugar would be the way to go there, but I’m not sure what all could be added other than nut butter and more nuts to make it savory.

    • Emily says

      O.k., I know this comment is way old, but have you thought about adding cheese for a savory one? And, there are tons of great spices for a savory one–garlic, all the italian spices, or you could go spicy with some peppery spices…. So many options

      • Alanna says

        I haven’t tried cheese, but that could work… wouldn’t be CCK-approved since it’s not vegan, but I like your idea to try that and different spices. Not a pepper fan personally, but I do love the Italians (especially oregano)!

  2. Jessie says

    This looks delicious! I have eaten your Reeses Peanut Butter Baked Oatmeal every single morning for months!

    Even my boyfriend asks for it sometimes so you know it must be good 😉

  3. Liz says

    I can’t tell you how excited I was to see this recipe in my inbox this morning. Making it tomorrow for breakfast!

  4. Kaitlin says

    My favorite is the banana bread baked oatmeal, but I really like the cookie dough one too! Will have to try this one!

  5. Emily J. says

    Pinned it! I really like the cookie dough oatmeal. Can’t wait until you come out with a cookbook, I will definitely be one of the first to buy it! =)

  6. Kyla @ Two Cups Cacao says

    I’ve tried your cinnamon roll baked oatmeal a couple months ago, and I had to make it again- it did not disappoint! I think I could say the same about this one, even though I haven’t even tried it yet. This looks fantastic! Definitely have to try this.

  7. EVA says

    Being a commuter, your banana bread oatmeal has saved me on tens of thousands of college breakfasts AND night class dinners! With a huge slab of raw almond butter, I am one happy camper (err….student). I love the straight-up banana so much that I’ve never even thought of straying to try a different flavor!

    Strawberries are SO DAMN expensive here in Wisconsin….but this looks amazing and I hate the color pink!

  8. Linda Kaban says

    Hi Katie,

    What temp should I use for a toaster oven Hate to use all that electricity with the big oven.



  9. Jolynn says

    YESSSS! I love your baked oatmeal recipes so much! I tried cutting strawberries up and adding them to the cookie dough baked oatmeal recipe…it was delicious! I’ve also tried cocoa powder in the cookie dough recipe and it tasted like a brownie!

  10. Mindy says

    Amazing! I made it this morning for my kids and I. All of them loved it. I quadrupled the recipe using half oil and half almond butter (I didn’t want the almond butter to overwhelm the strawberry tastes but I liked the adde protein). I used an immersion blender on the strawberries for quick mashing. It fit in an 8×8. Thanks Katie! I never thought to do baked oatmeal with strawberries. We have done pumpkin though and that is delicious as well.

  11. Jules @ WolfItDown says

    This looks and sounds soooo good! And I bet you can make a porridge version of it too, mmmmm! I mean….if you’re as impatient as I am in the mornings! Sometimes I have a little bit of time before the hanger kicks in though 😛 x

  12. Karen says

    I can’t wait to try this! I love anything that involves oatmeal. I’ve been doing a lot of overnight oats recipes lately, but I’m going to try some baked oatmeal recipes. I love how this is a single serving recipe because all the ones I’ve seen are usually big batches that serve 6 people. Thanks Katie!!

  13. Teresa says

    Yum! Thanks for sharing a new baked oatmeal recipe. Those are some of my favorite recipes from your site. (Boatmeal and single serving cookies are the things I make most often.)

    I think my favorite is just the basic recipe with applesauce and spices, though I’m quite fond of the one with peanut butter and chocolate chips too.

  14. Tara says

    I tripled this recipe and baked it in a bread loaf pan to cut into oatmeal bars. Thank you Katie! Can’t wait for your book so I won’t have to keep writing your recipes on post its everywhere.

  15. Samantha says

    I absolutely loved your pumpkin baked oatmeal (it’s the recipe that brought me to your site!) and I have done half a dozen variations on it over the past year! I have never thought to purée the strawberries first though – sounds divine!

  16. Candice says

    I have been loving baked oatmeal and recently adapted a recipe from Skinnytaste to meet all my dietary restrictions. I was so excited to see your recipe because love strawberries and don’t have to make any modifications to this recipe to meet my needs. Thanks for sharing a delicious looking recipe again. I have had so many recent successes with your recipes.

  17. Ceara @ Ceara's Kitchen says

    I love your baked oatmeal recipes and this one looks delicious! Strawberry shortcakes are one of my FAV desserts! I made a strawberry shortcake Vegan Overnight Oats the other day and loved it so I can only imagine how delicious this tastes 🙂

  18. Inge says

    That looks delicious!
    I wonder though, won’t the nut butter be to dominating as a flavour? It would be a pity to taste the strawberries less… What is your opinion of that combination?

  19. Martha Bernard says

    I made the Strawberry Shortcake Baked Oatmeal for breakfast this morning. It is delicious!! Tastes more like dessert. I’m glad I quadrupled the recipe so I can enjoy it all week 🙂 I made it with coconut oil, and sprinkled some grated coconut on top–really a good flavor combo with the strawberries. You have a gift for coming up with healthy recipes that taste great. I love your site–keep up the good work!

  20. Taylor Ann says

    LOVE this recipe! I’ve made it a few times and it always turns out perfect. I didn’t have strawberries one time (but was seriously craving this recipe) so I substituted blueberries in and it was just as good. Thanks for another awesome recipe 🙂

  21. Amanda says

    I just wanted to say that I tried this, and it blew my mind! Thank you for posting! I topped mine with easy vegan frosting… about 1 TBSP. So… good!

  22. MER says

    Our very favorite baked oatmeal so far….my 3yr old toddler loved. Made with cocnut oil.
    Delicious light and fruity. Thanks.

  23. Desiree says

    I just wanted to say to anyone who is curious – I always quadruple Katie’s baked oat recipes with no problems at all. Just multiply ingredients times 4 – cook it in a round cake pan and call it breakfast! My family loves these recipes. Keep ’em coming! You’ve made me the coolest mom…I mean…my kids get chocolate “cake” for breakfast 😉
