This super easy blended baked oats recipe is completely taking over the internet right now, and for very good reason!
Baked oats have been all over social media this month.
Have you tried the popular recipe yet?
As someone who first started posting single serving baked oatmeal recipes way back in 2010 (yes, seriously… here’s proof), I am 100% here for this trend.
For my take on the viral TikTok recipe, I used the chocolate chip cookie baked oats from my blog, doubled the milk for more of a gooey cookie dough texture and added a little baking powder to help it rise.

How to make baked oats
If you’re baking the oatmeal in the oven, start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Or skip this step for microwave oatmeal.
Stir the rolled oats, baking powder, salt, milk of choice, banana or applesauce, sweetener, and optional nut butter together. Blend if desired.
Pour the baked oatmeal batter into a heat safe dish. If you want a gooey center, use a deeper dish or large mug. Otherwise choose a wide and shallow dish.
Bake 25 minutes on the oven center rack, or microwave one to two minutes. Apply toppings as desired, and enjoy.

I topped mine with chocolate chips and Coconut Whipped Cream.
And now I’m debating whether or not to actually start posting recipe videos on my currently empty TikTok account (chocolatecoveredkatie).
There are just too many forms of social media these days… it’s impossible to keep up!

TikTok baked oatmeal
Feel free to bake the oatmeal in the microwave or the oven, whichever you prefer.
Or you can always skip the baking step entirely and just eat the unbaked oatmeal batter cold. To each their own.
Many of the trending TikTok baked oat recipes call for blending the oats (or using oat flour), so I blended mine this time too.
If you don’t have a blender or prefer a chewier texture to your baked oat cake, it’s fine to skip the blending step and simply mix everything together with a spoon instead.
As for variations, feel free to add a tablespoon of your favorite protein powder, stir 1/4 tsp of cinnamon into the batter, or add your favorite nut butter or healthy nutella to the center of the oatmeal cake.
