Oats are always a wonderful choice for breakfast but this unique healthy baked oatmeal is perhaps my favorite way to enjoy eating them.

What Is Baked Oatmeal?

Baked oatmeal is a little like a breakfast casserole made with oats, milk, spices, egg, and often fruit. It’s one of my favorite healthy oatmeal recipes.

In this Baked Oatmeal For One recipe, a layer of fruit lines the bottom of a buttered oven-safe dish. We love using blueberries, fresh or frozen but feel free to use your favorite fruits in this oatmeal recipe. Sliced bananas, sliced strawberries, and chopped apples are wonderful additions.

The fruit is topped with a blend of oats and spices. A mixture of milk, melted butter, vanilla, an egg, and a touch of maple syrup or honey is whisked together and drizzled over the top.

The oatmeal casserole bakes in the oven and can be enjoyed soon after. Enjoy the oats hot, served with milk, yogurt or cream, drizzled with additional honey or as is.

How To Make Baked Oatmeal Without A Recipe

Baked oatmeal comes together quickly and easily. The best part about this recipe is that it’s easily customizable. Just remember the formula of one part dry ingredients, one part wet ingredients, one egg, and about a tablespoon of honey.

Pro Tip: 1/4-cup of oats seems to be the ideal amount of oats for one person and make sure the liquid ingredients measure to be the same amount (1/4-cup) before adding the egg.

Feel free to experiment with different spices in your recipe. Nutmeg and cardamom are great choices.

Also, you do not have to use cow’s milk in this recipe. Almond milk, soy milk, and coconut milk make excellent choices.

Sweeten your baked oatmeal to taste. I use a small amount of sweetener in this recipe because I often like to add fruit to the top or serve it with vanilla yogurt.

If you think you’d like your oatmeal to be a little sweeter, add additional sweetener.

The crisp, golden-brown oatmeal is as delicious fresh out of the oven as it is reheated the next day in the oven or microwave.
