I love finding new ways to eat oatmeal. It’s such a powerhouse food and tastes so delicious in so many things.
I love all the new oat-related products coming out. My kids get tired of a bowl of oatmeal, so sometimes I like to switch it up and make these baked oats.
It’s an easy recipe to throw together, and they love it.

Easy Vegan Baked Oatmeal Recipe Q&A
Can I cut the sugar down or make it refined sugar-free?
Yes, if this is too sweet or if you want more of a healthy baked oatmeal, you can use one ripe banana (mashed banana) and a couple of tablespoons of pure maple syrup. If it isn’t sweet enough after baking, add some more maple syrup to the top.
Can I use quick oats?
I have only made this recipe using old fashion oats or rolled oats, and I would only use those because I think the instant oats are too soft for this recipe.
What’s the best dairy-free milk to use?
I prefer a thicker non-dairy milk for this recipe, but you can use any of them like; oat milk, soy milk, almond milk, coconut milk, or whichever you have on hand.
Can I use this as a make-ahead breakfast?
I would place everything in the 8×8 pan but the non-dairy milk. I would do that the morning of when you bake the recipe.
Otherwise, you will end up with a giant thing of overnight oats instead of baked oatmeal.
This makes for a very easy breakfast whether you make it ahead or do it the morning of.
Can I use coconut oil instead of vegan butter?
Yes, if you prefer, you can use melted coconut oil instead. I like the vegan butter flavor better, but both will work.
