Blended oats are just what they sound like, but even better. They’re fluffy, smooth, and these flavor combinations we have here are SO GOOD. Truly, I keep making the chocolate one for dessert because I can’t get enough.

What is blended oatmeal?

Blended oatmeal is, essentially, oatmeal that has been blended before cooking so that, when cooked, it has the texture and consistency of a cake. YEP, you read that right. Blended baked oatmeal is breakfast cake at its (very, very) finest.

CAKE! No really, I’m not kidding – blended baked oats taste like actual cake. If you ask me, blended oatmeal is actually one of the most genius TikTok trends around. It has literally popularized eating (healthy) cake for breakfast, and I. Am. Here. For. It.

How to Make Blender Baked Oats

  1. Prep – grease an 8-ounce ramekin and the preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Blend together the ingredients – add all of the ingredients to a blender, and blend on high for 1 minute, until smooth.
  3. Pour into the ramekin & bake – pour the blended oat mixture into the prepared ramekin, and bake for 25 minutes.
  4. Enjoy!

Notes:

  • A small blender like a Nutribullet or Magic Bullet work the best for a single batch and give the smoothest consistency for the oat mixture.
  • We found that 25 minutes was the perfect amount of time to keep the mixture super moist. The toothpick test does not work well with this recipe and is not an indicator of doneness. If you want to bake until a toothpick comes clean, it will take closer to 40 minutes, but we found that the top and inside were very dry.

How to Store Blended Baked Oats

Though these are single-serve portions, if you happen to have leftovers (or if you made a couple of batches meal prep-style), feel free to cover them and store them in an airtight container in the fridge. Stored this way, your blended baked oats will last for up to a week!

Q How long do baked oats keep?
A

Stored covered in the refrigerator, your blended oats will last for up to a week.

Q What kind of oats are best for blended baked oats?
A

Good question! We used old-fashioned rolled oats here, but because your blending the oats, any variation should work – steel cut oats may be a little more difficult to blend, but they’ll still do the trick!

Q Can you use oat flour instead of oats?
A

You can absolutely use oat flour instead of blending your own oats. This would be especially perfect if you don’t have a small Nutribullet-style blender (we’ve done LOTS of testing and have found that a Nutribullet blender actually works the best to blend the mixture into a really creamy consistency).
