Baked Oatmeal Recipe
What is baked oatmeal? Baked oatmeal is a sweet breakfast bake, muffin or casserole made with mainly oats (of all types), eggs, sugar, milk, and fruit.
Baked Oatmeal without Sugar
As a healthier alternative or because of dietary restrictions, baked oatmeal can be made without refined sugar. We used Swerve brown sugar in this recipe, but it can be replaced with regular brown sugar, white sugar, or even eliminated for a sugar-free version.
Baked Oatmeal without Butter or Oil
This baked oatmeal can be lighted even further by replacing the butter with additional applesauce in an equal amount to the butter. The end result won’t be quite as rich but will still bake and hold together well.
Our recipe does not include any oil.
Is Oatmeal And Banana Healthy?
You bet, baked oatmeal is a treat or breakfast you can feel great about eating.
Both oatmeal and bananas contain soluble and insoluble fiber, each of which helps you maintain proper bowel health. Soluble fiber also helps lower your cholesterol level, so increasing the amount in your breakfast by adding a banana to your oatmeal is a healthy choice. (Read more at HealthyEating.)
Can Baked Oatmeal Be Left Out Overnight?
While you can leave it out overnight. I suggest refrigerating oatmeal cups in an air-tight container to prevent them from spoiling. This is a moist recipe so especially in humid climates, you risk it going bad or developing mold.
Baked oatmeal can be stored in the refrigerator for 5 days.
To freeze, cool the cups completely. Wrap individually in plastic wrap, and then place all cups into a zipper bag. This makes it easy to grab just one or two on busy mornings.
How Do You Reheat Baked Oats?
To reheat, remove oatmeal cups from plastic wrap or cover, and wrap them in a damp paper towel. Heat in microwave on high for 1 minute. Check that cup is hot throughout.
Oatmeal cups can also be baked in the oven at 325 degrees for 15 minutes to reheat.
If you like your oatmeal cups crispy, they can be reheated in the air fryer at 300 degrees for 10 minutes.
How Long Can You Store Baked Oatmeal?
Baked oatmeal contains dairy and eggs which means that it should be stored in the refrigerator. Cover the baked oatmeal cups with foil, plastic wrap, or store in an air-tight container then place the oatmeal in the fridge until you’re ready to enjoy it. It will last around 5 days if stored properly.
Weight Watchers Vegetarian and Vegan Baked Oatmeal
To make this recipe WW vegetarian and vegan, replace the 1/4 cup butter with 1/4 cup additional applesauce and use a “flax egg” of 4 T ground flax meal and 3 T water in place of the 2 eggs.
Then follow the recipe as written.

Sara, please help; in South Africa we do not use Green, Blue or purple , just points.
On what stage of WW you use the Green, Blue or Purple points.
I am on my goal… want to eat healthy
Thank you for the recipe
Hi Joey, I’m not sure how the WW points system works in your country, but I would recommend using the points for Blue. That was basically what the previous Freestyle plan was and I’m guessing it’s probably the same for you.
