These viral blended baked oats have been all the rage over the last year or two and for good reason. It tastes like you’re eating cake for breakfast, the possibilities for flavor combinations are endless, and they make a balanced, nutritious breakfast! Today we’ll be making three different variations – chocolate chip cookie, brownie batter, and cinnamon roll.
What’s the deal with blended baked oats?
I’m sure you’ve seen regular baked oats all over the internet and social media. They kind of resemble an oatmeal cookie, with the chunks of oats still in-tact. Blending the oats first, before baking, creates a cake-like batter and texture once baked. To be honest, I prefer this method over regular baked oats!n They’re fluffy and moist and so delicious!
Oats: I opt for organic old-fashioned rolled oats.
Eggs: I haven’t tested this recipe with any egg substitutes. You could try using a flax egg, but i’m not sure how it’ll affect the end results/texture.
Milk: I use a plant-based milk, but regular milk will work as well.
How to make viral blended baked oats
- Add all ingredients (besides mix-ins) to a blender and blend until smooth.
- Stir in any add-in’s, like chocolate chips, if using any.
Prep the batter the night before. If you’re short on time in the morning, you can blend the batter the night before. Then in the morning, pour it into your ramekin. You can bake it for the best texture, or microwave it if you’re short on time. They turn out a bit cakier when cooked in the microwave, but still delish!
Double the recipe for a larger group. Have kiddos? Have multiple mouths to feed? Double or triple the recipe and use a larger pan (8×8 if tripling).
These are best consumed straight away. As mentioned above, if you want to save some time in the morning, you can blend the oat mixture the night before, however I don’t recommend baking them the night before to reheat the next day. You totally can, but the texture will be way more dry.
