Tips for Making Baked Oatmeal

  • We like using old fashioned oats, not instant because of their ideal texture, but you could likely use instant oats if that’s what you have in the pantry. 
  • You can substitute melted coconut oil for the melted butter.
  • Although we haven’t tried it, you could also substitute honey for the brown sugar.
  • We recommend using a non-stick spray or silicone baking cups in the muffin tin. Paper liners tend to get too soggy and not work as well.
  • Baked Oatmeal keeps in an airtight container in the refrigerator for about 5 days or in the freezer for about 3 months.

Can You Freeze Baked Oatmeal?

Yes, this is one mom hack we can definitely say works. These Baked Oatmeal Cup freeze well. They last in the freezer for about 3 months. What a brilliant grab-n-go breakfast. 

Once cooked and cooled, place in a freezer bag. Don’t forget to label with the contents and date!

To defrost, either place them in the refrigerator overnight and heat as desired the next day or just defrost a cup in the microwave for in 60 seconds increments. 

How about that for an easy breakfast!

Optional Baked Oatmeal Flavors

To change up your flavors, try any one of these add-ins:

  • Chocolate chips or chunks
  • Citrus zest (orange or lemon)
  • Almond or coconut milk
  • Fresh fruit
  • Coconut (shredded or baked chips)
  • Raisins or other dried fruit

How Do You Make Baked Oatmeal with Eggs?

Unlike traditional oatmeal, this recipe uses eggs. The eggs help the cups bind together perfectly. Just put your eggs in the batter and it bakes up to form perfect, golden brown cups that don’t fall apart.
