Baked Oats

This super easy blended baked oats recipe is completely taking over the internet right now, and for very good reason!

Blender Oatmeal Recipe

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.

TikTok Baked Oats Recipe

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!

Blended Baked Oats Recipe

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.

  1. Everything But The Bagel Elsa says

    CCK is about the only “social media” I use regularly! But this is one thing I am dying to try. We buy oats and applesauce in bulk… so this is happening for dessert. Dumb question though: What size dish do you use for the cake? I have a Pyrex oven safe 1 2/3 cup glass bowl, some mini loaf pans and a jumbo muffin tin. Which would work best to yield a thick, HUGE fluffy cake like in the video?? Thanks so much

    • CCK Media Team says

      We are verrrry new to tiktok and still don’t really understand it! The ramekin in the photos is maybe a little over a cup size.

  2. K Ann Guinn says

    Do you think this would work in a larger quantity (maybe three or four times) to bake for a family? Also, it sounds like it would be best enjoyed straight from the oven, but would it still be good if extra was made ahead and then it was reheated? I want to try this either way. I eat oats almost every morning. 🙂

  3. Summer says

    Recipe idea is great, but… not my cup of tea. Too gooey, didnt cook evenly, and not what I expected. Maybe a longer cooking time at a slightly higher temperature would make the edges crispier and the inside actually baked.

    • CCK Media Team says

      We like (and prefer!) the gooey center, but if you want it more evenly baked then just use a wider dish instead of a deeper one. That should do the trick for what you’re looking for!

  4. Outdoor Girl says

    So good and gooey inside, hit the spot, just what I was craving! I used banana, almond milk, 100% real maple syrup for sweetener, 1 TBSP of natural pb and after blending, a generous handful of dark chocolate chips. I used a round 1c Pyrex dish which overflowed just a hair. This is going to be one of my go-to treats! Thank you Katie for yet another delicious recipe!

  5. Selene Smith says

    This is my favourite recipe ever. I’ve tried this multiple times and it has never failed me. I saw it all over tiktok and I wanted to see if it was worth all the hype. In the end I chose the recipe and let me tell you, this is my all time favourite dish. It’s like you are eating cake but its a lot better for you (in my opinion). I was worried it was going to be to dense. Nope, thats not the case. It’s perfect in every way. I do add some strawberries in it anytime i make it and its so amazing. I just made them again but in muffin form and I absolutely loved them! I couldn’t recommend this recipe enough. Definitely give it a try.

  6. Joey says

    I made this for breakfast this morning for my bday and it was awesome! I will definitely make it again! Thanks!

  7. Avra says

    Katie, were you able to get an actual oat “cake” in the microwave? I went with the microwave option and ended up with just regular oatmeal (I skipped the optional blending step), nothing like the old boatmeal! 🙁

  8. Meg says

    Tried this for the first time today and LOVED IT! I added a scoop of chocolate protein powder and topped with peanut butter. Baked at 350 and it was crispy on outside and creamy on the inside- delicious!!! Thank you!!

  9. Jenn says

    These baked oats are so good!!! Like, I would happily eat them for dessert instead of cake good. If you could do a chocolate baked oatmeal recipe too (so like this one, but with cocoa powder), I would love to see what you can come up with!

  10. Diana says

    Wow! This looks so good! I am definetly making this tomorrow! After I make it, I’ll leave a review! And you can expect a woderful review! 😉

  11. Katie Milliken says

    This was great! A healthy alternative to banana bread. Used oat milk and a whole banana. Sprinkled some semi-sweet chocolate chips on top and that was all the sweetener I needed!

  12. Marlene Newland says

    I love your recipes – much better than boiling oats!

    Follow recipe completely, but for some reason I end up with a rather rubbery flat little cake. Tastes good, but definitely not fluffy. I suspect my tin is a bit flat (4″ x 4″) but should I use more baking powder? I would love it to look like a little fluffy cake!!
    Do you use convection oven (normal oven) or fan-forced? Would fan forced oven dry it out. I realise I probably need to adjust cooking times.
    Thanks for all your efforts.

    Hi Katie- any idea how much oat flour to use if already have it and want to skip the blender step? Thanks!

    I was wondering if you can get normal baked oats recipes but just putting them in the microwave rather than oven.

  15. Leigh says

    Absolutely delicious! I made 4x the recipe and baked in a larger baking dish. I had some leftover batter that went in a ramekin. Cooked the ramekin for 25min and the larger dish for 35min. The ramekin came out a little dry but still great, and the larger dish gooey and perfect on the inside. Thanks for this recipe!!! I used mashed banana and oat milk.

    I’ve been making baked oats from your blog from back in the day when you used to call them boatmeals lol. Today was strawberry shortcake baked oatmeal, and tomorrow will be cookie dough!
