Recipe Tips

Use a high powdered blender to get the best results.

You don’t have to blend the ingredients, however it will be just like oatmeal and won’t have that light and fluffy texture.  

Oats: You can use quick oats or rolled oats but not steel cut oats. The steel cut oats are a harder solid grain that are much harder to blend and you won’t get an oat flour kind of texture. It creates a gritty texture when blended.

You’ll know the oats are done when the edges start to pull away from the sides, just like cake! Or when you insert a toothpick in the center and it comes out clean.

Make Ahead, Storing, and Freezing

Make the baked oatmeal ahead of time and store it in the fridge. Reheat in the microwave for a minute or warm in the oven until warmed through.

Store any leftovers in the fridge for 3-4 days.

To freeze, wrap the ramekin in plastic wrap and then in aluminum foil and store in the freezer for 2-3 months.

FAQs

A ramekin is a small, circular dish used in baking. It’s used for baking individual-sized dishes and desserts.

Can you make baked oats in the microwave?

Yes you can! If you are looking for a quicker option, put them in the microwave for a few minutes until cooked through. Similar to the oven, a toothpick should come out clean.

Can I multiply this recipe to make more?

Yes, you can! Multiply the recipe by however many servings you need, since this makes 1 serving. Be sure to have multiple ramekins to bake them all at once.

Can I make this in one bigger pan?

Yes that should work. Depending on the size of pan and how many times you multiply it. You will have to adjust the bake time accordingly. I’d recommend using a bread pan, cake pan, or a muffin tin.
