Recently I've been seeing an increase in porridge oats videos on TikTok. It's becoming a bit of a trend to make 'aesthetically pleasing' looking oats for your breakfast, and some of the oats I've seen have left my mouth watering. I mean, just look at these, stunning right?! If I could smell that through my screen, I would imagine my nose would be very happy!!

Apart from just your standard porridge, I have also been seeing some baked oats, which to be totally honest with you I'd never actually heard of before. So when more and more of these frankly delicious looking baked oats recipes came up on my 'for you' page, I had to get in on the action too! I looked up a few recipes and based on those, I drafted this little baby up!

Cinnamon roll baked oats

cinnamon roll flavored baked oats recipe to start your morning on a sweet note.

Serves1
Cuisine
Mealbreakfast

Ingredients

  • 1/2 banana
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tablespoon brown sugar (or any other sugar)
  • 1/2 cup milk (any milk will do)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Mash your banana with a fork until it's almost lump free
  2. Blend your oats (optional but it gives it more of a cake consistency) and add them to the banana
  3. Add in your cinnamon, sugar, and baking powder
  4. Add in your milk and vanilla
  5. Mix thoroughly
  6. Place in an oven proof dish
  7. Bake at 180°c (350°f) for 20 mins

Recipe Notes

you can substitute milk for any other milk types: almond milk, oat milk, or your preferred option! Blending your oats is completely optional. I know a few people who hate the texture of oats, but by blending them it gives the dish a cake kind of texture, and which is what I'm going for.

This is what the blended oat mixture looked like before it went in the oven:

When I took it out of the oven it had risen a bit, and it just smelled spectacular. I let it cool for a few minutes before having a taste!

Now I wouldn't usually be someone to get up and take 30 minutes to make myself a breakfast, at least not before an insane amount of coffee – instead I just grab some toast or cereal and devour it in mere minutes, but these baked oats are totally worth the time. They are just gorgeous, and they are the highlight of the morning for me!

I really do recommend these baked oats to you ladies and gents, they're an amazing way to spice up your breakfast and well worth trying. if you do happen to give these oats a go, why not send me a picture of them? How about drop a comment on what you thought!

    • It's the texture of it. I will steal a bite of my husband's oatmeal and that's all I can handle.
