Strawberry Baked Oats

This baked strawberry oatmeal is a cross between strawberries and cream cake and oatmeal in one perfect recipe. With Greek yogurt, maple syrup, fresh strawberries, oats and protein powder, you have a velvety make-ahead breakfast you won’t want to put down. 

Filled with wholesome ingredients, you’ll love how delicious these oats are. They truly taste like dessert but are even better paired with homemade maple sausage. These are similar to my chocolate baked oats which are more of a brownie-like breakfast dessert and perfect for chocolate lovers.

What is baked oatmeal?

Baked oatmeal takes all the typical stovetop oatmeal ingredients to a new level by baking them. By adding Greek yogurt and eggs to these strawberry oats you get a creamy strawberry cake texture with bits of oatmeal throughout.

Is baked oatmeal good for you?

Oats are full of vitamins, minerals, and complex carbohydrates to help you stay fuller longer. By adding protein powder to these oats we’re also upping our protein intake to again, help us stay fuller longer. Oatmeal is also a great source of fiber.

Ingredients:

These are the main ingredients and substitutions for these strawberry-baked oats. See the recipe card below for the full ingredients list and instructions.

Oats, protein powder, baking powder, salt, eggs, almond milk, coconut oil, syrup, vanilla extract and strawberries for the oats.

Variations and Substitutions

  • Use pure maple syrup or honey in place of light pancake syrup.
  • Replace coconut oil with melted butter 1:1.
  • Use any milk of choice: dairy or plant-based.
  • I always use PeScience vanilla protein powder. You can use your favorite, just be sure you love the flavor of yours!
  • To omit protein powder, lower the milk 1/4 cup and adjust sweetness as desired with syrup or honey as the protein adds quite a bit of sweetness to the oats.
  • Add white chocolate chips, sliced almonds, or lemon juice before you bake.

Dietary Modifications

  • To make dairy-free, be sure you use a dairy-free protein powder.
  • To make gluten-free be sure your protein powder and oats are certified gluten-free.

How to make strawberry baked oatmeal (a visual step-by-step guide):

Step 1: preheat and prep

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line an 8×8-inch baking dish with parchment paper or spray with cooking spray. If using a good metal pan then you can omit the parchment paper.

Step 2: mix dry ingredients

Baking powder, oats, protein powder and salt added to a bowl to combine.

In a large bowl, combine the oats, protein powder, baking powder, and salt (image 1).

All dry ingredients fully combined in a bowl.

Whisk together to combine (image 2).

Step 3: mix wet ingredients

Eggs, almond milk, vanilla extract, greek yogurt and coconut oil in a bowl to combine.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the maple syrup, vanilla extract, eggs, milk, greek yogurt, and melted coconut oil (image 3).

All wet ingredients fully combined in a bowl.

Bake in the preheated oven for 50-55 minutes, or until the center is set and a toothpick inserted comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs (image 8).

Step 5: remove and cool

Allow the baked oatmeal to cool for a few minutes before cutting into 6 equal servings and serving. You can enjoy it warm, at room temperature, or even cold.

How to store your oatmeal

This is an excellent nutritious breakfast to make ahead of time. Store your leftover oatmeal in an airtight container for up to 5 days. Reheat in the microwave, air fryer, or oven before serving.

What to serve with your oatmeal

My favorite way: right when it comes out of the oven, piping hot, add a dollop of Greek yogurt and sliced strawberries. It literally tastes like strawberry cheesecake. Cream cheese would make this even creamier!

Other yummy things to add: shredded coconut, fresh berries, crunchy almonds, or some white chocolate chips.

    I made this yesterday after work. It was easy to throw together. I ate it this morning with Greek yogurt, strawberries and peanut butter. It was so good and filling!!!

    This came out beautifully. However, the coconut oil I used had an overpowering flavor. Next time I will use butter.

    Loved this!! I had to up my baking time with how thick it was in an 8×8 dish (but also this isn’t unusual for my oven) but it was DELICIOUS. Added extra Greek yogurt and sliced bananas when plating it and it was the perfect sweet meal.
