When my husband and I first discovered baked oatmeal, we were surprised at how much it is like a dessert, at least we think that it is. It’s certainly nothing like the bland, gloppy oatmeal you may have grown up with. Plus, you can make it your own with creative mix-ins, like the chocolate chips we used in this chocolate chip baked oatmeal. This single serving baked oatmeal provides the perfect opportunity to enjoy baked oatmeal for yourself without having to worry about storing leftovers.

🧾 Ingredients

Single serving baked oatmeal ingredients
  • Rolled oats. This recipe uses old fashioned rolled oats, not quick oats nor steel cut oats. For a gluten-free option, be sure to use certified gluten-free rolled oats. We recommend Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Organic Old Fashioned Rolled Oats. While oats are naturally gluten free, some brands process their oats in the same plant where they process products that contain gluten. If you have a gluten intolerance, or a loved one who does, it’s important to use a certified gluten-free brand.
  • brown sugar. You can use light or dark brown sugar. Dark brown sugar has more depth of flavor. If you prefer something lighter, go with light. For a sugar free option, we recommend Swerve brown sugar substitute.
  • ground cinnamon. Adds flavor.
  • Baking powder. Baking powder is a leavening agent. This is what causes the baked oatmeal to rise. Without it, the end result will be too dense.
  • Salt. Enhances flavor.
  • Milk. Add moisture and flavor.
  • Greek yogurt. Acts as a binding agent. It also adds flavor. Most baked oatmeal recipes use eggs, but one egg would be too much egg for a single serving baked oatmeal recipe. Greek yogurt is a great substitute.
  • Unsalted butter. Melted and cooled.
  • vanilla extract. Adds flavor. You can swap this out according to your taste. Rum, pumpkin pie, or almond extract would be tasty as well!
  • Dried fruit. This is optional. Raisins, dried cranberries, dates, dried cherries, currants, or dried blueberries are a few suggestions.
