What is Baked Oatmeal?

If you’re new to the world of baked oatmeal, it’s a wonderfully rich and moist breakfast treat. It’s basically oats baked into a custard. Kind of like bread pudding, but with oats instead of bread. If you think you don’t like oats because they tend to be gooey when boiled with water, try baked oatmeal. It’s soft, moist, and rich, but not at all gooey. Some people also mistakenly think baked oats are crunchy, but they’re not. 

Try these other baked oatmeal flavors: Pumpkin Pie Baked Oatmeal, Oatmeal Cookie Baked Oatmeal, or Blueberry Banana Baked Oatmeal.

How to Store the Leftovers

This recipe makes a pretty big batch, so you’ll want to save the leftovers to eat throughout the week. Make sure to refrigerate your baked oatmeal soon after cooking. I like to divide my baked oatmeal into single servings right after baking, then refrigerate them in individual containers. Once chilled, you can keep the baked oatmeal in the refrigerator for about 5 days, or freeze for about 3 months. 

How to Serve Banana Bread Baked Oatmeal

Baked oatmeal can be eaten hot OR cold. You can eat it as-is, or pour cold milk over top. And, if you like things a little sweeter, you can drizzle a little maple syrup over top.

Can I Use Steel Cut Oats?

You can not substitute steel cut oats in this recipe without making other changes because steel cut oats require a lot more moisture and a longer cooking time than rolled oats. While it may be possible to tweak it to make it work, I have not tested this method so I can not offer suggestions for that particular substitution.

How to Make Banana Bread Baked Oatmeal – Step By Step Photos

Mashed bananas in a measuring cup next to whole bananas

Preheat the oven to 375ºF. You’ll need 1.5 cups mashed bananas, which is about three bananas. I like to mash my bananas right in a liquid measuring cup so I can see the volume on the side.

Mashed bananas in a bowl with other liquid ingredients

Add the mashed bananas to a large bowl along with ⅓ cup brown sugar, 2 large eggs, ½ tsp salt, ½ tsp vanilla extract, 1 tsp baking powder, ¼ tsp cinnamon, and ⅛ tsp nutmeg. Whisk the ingredients together until they’re evenly combined.

Milk being poured into the mixing bowl

Add 2 cups milk and whisk to combine again. It’s easier to whisk in the milk after the other ingredients have been combined because it causes less splashing.

Rolled oats and chopped walnuts added to liquid ingredients

Finally, stir in 2.5 cups rolled oats and ½ cup chopped walnuts.

unbaked oats in casserole dish

Pour the oat mixture into a 9×9-inch casserole dish.

Bake the oatmeal in the preheated 375ºF for 45 minutes, or until it’s golden brown on top and around the edges.

Serve the banana bread baked oatmeal immediately, or divide into six portions and refrigerate for later!
