Banana Bread Baked Oats

Banana Bread Baked Oats



2 servings 

– ½ cup rolled oats

– ½ banana

– ½ tsp vanilla extract

– 1 egg

– ¼ tsp cinnamon + extra for dusting

– Pinch of nutmeg (optional)

– 2 tbsp peanut butter

– 1 tbsp maple syrup (or honey or agave → any liquid sweetener works)

– ¼ cup milk (plant based or cow milk works!)

– ¼ tsp baking powder

– ¼ tsp salt

– Chocolate chips, optional


 Preheat oven to 350 F (180 C) and grease 2 ramekins or 1 large oven proof bowl

1. In a blender, add all of the ingredients except for the chocolate chips (oats, banana, vanilla, egg, cinnamon, nutmeg, peanut butter, maple syrup, milk, baking powder and salt)

2. Blend for 30 seconds – 1 minute, or until everything is combined and the oats have been blended

3. Stir in chocolate chips or other toppings in the batter (optional)

4. Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish and top with additional chocolate, or other toppings

5. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the center is fully baked(a toothpick should come out clean when inserted)

6. Allow to cool completely, or until cool enough to handle and serve!


Egg: You can omit the egg and use 1 full banana in the recipe if you prefer, the egg gives it a fluffy and light texture, so the texture may vary

Vanilla: vanilla extract is completely optional in this recipe, but I do add it in all of my baked goods, especially when there is an egg in the recipe 

– Maple Syrup: Maple syrup can be swapped out for honey, agave or any other liquid sweetener of choice. Add an extra tablespoon of sweetener if you prefer it to be on the sweeter side

–  Sweetener: If you’re not concerned about added sugar, you can add additional sugar in the recipe to adjust the sweetness to your liking

– Cinnamon and nutmeg: this recipe can be made without these two ingredients, but I would highly recommend it! These ingredients completely change the flavors of the recipe, and help it taste more like a warm autumn morning

– Peanut butter: can be replaced with any nut butter of your choice, you can add an extra teaspoon of nut butter in the center of the baking dish for a molten center

–  Milk: any milk, including plant-based works in this recipe. I would not recommend swapping it out for water in this particular recipe
