Can you make this recipe ahead of time?

Yes. I suggest making multiple bowls in oven safe meal prep dishes, like these glass containers, and reheat throughout the week. Top the baked oatmeal for one with your favorite toppings and enjoy. 

What size baking dish do you use?

I am using a 5″ x 5″ x 3″ Souper Cubes Stoneware Baking Dish. Use code OHSNAPMACROS10 for 10% off your first order. Souper Cubes products are a staple in my house and the baking dish works perfect with this baked oatmeal for one. 

Flavor adds!

I recommend adding a splash of almond milk to the oats before eating. It adds the perfect amount of creaminess and really takes it up a notch. Some other toppings and spice adds for these baked oatmeal for one are:

  • Fresh Berries (blueberries, raspberries, strawberries).
  • Banana, you could also substitute the pumpkin for 1/2 a ripe banana.
  • Additional chocolate chips, yum.
  • Pumpkin Pie Spice 
  • Flakey Sea Salt.
  •  Ginger + Cinnamon for a gingerbread baked oat.
  • Cinnamon + Ginger + Nutmeg to get a pumpkin pie flavored oat.
  • Liquid Extracts: Vanilla, Almond, Lemon, Peppermint, Coconut, Banana, Maple, Orange.

Ingredients and Substitutes:

These are the main ingredients and substitutions. See recipe card below for full ingredients list and instructions for baked oatmeal for one.

Old Fashioned Oats: this recipe has only been testing with old fashioned oats. 

Almond Milk: you can use unsweetened unflavored almond milk but keep in mind the unsweetened Vanilla will add a little more flavor. I get mine from Costco in bulk.

Pumpkin Puree: if you do not want to use pumpkin puree use 1/2 a ripe banana, mashed. This will also add sweetness that the pumpkin does not add. 

Lite Pancake Syrup: this is used to add sweetness to the oats. You can substitute with pure maple syrup or honey. 

Vanilla Extract: for different variations of these baked oatmeal for one use other flavor extracts like: Almond, Lemon, Peppermint, Coconut, Banana, Maple, Orange.

  1. I am making this recipe right now and looking forward to it. You have ground cinnamon twice. Is that because you suggest it as a topping?

  2. This has been on repeat for months. It is so easy and delicious! I increase portions to 6 and bake in a 9×13 dish. Sometimes, I will add vanilla protein powder to up the macros.
    It freezes and reheats well. Thanks, Danielle, for all your fabulous 5 star recipes!!!!!

  3. 5 stars
    I made this for breakfast this morning. I subbed applesauce for pumpkin because I didn’t have any. Super easy and delicious.
