Baked Vegan Oatmeal is not only healthy and vegan but also packed with flavour!
Baked oatmeal is one of the most filling and healthy breakfast options you can have. However, the traditional recipe is made using dairy products like milk, yoghurt and eggs.
Keeping in mind my vegan bakers, I tweaked the recipe, and after many hits and misses, I finally have the perfect baked vegan oatmeal recipe for you.
Serve this warm or cold; you will relish it either way. It’s totally worth the hype, and guess what? It can be made within 30 minutes. So it’s a perfect breakfast or even an evening snack option.
This one casserole dish has a burst of fresh blueberries, crunch and chewiness from the rolled oats and creaminess from yoghurt. It will fill your heart with a lot of warmth!!

Important Ingredients Used In The Recipe
- Rolled Oats: I have used quick/ instant oats here. They are thin and make for crispier top. If you want, you may opt for regular thick oats as well.
- Chia Seeds: these are a great source of Fibre, antioxidants and minerals. Also good for digestion. Hence, adding these make your dish quite nutritious.
- Fresh blueberries: I always prefer using fresh fruits in my recipes. The burst of flavour that fresh blueberries can provide is unmatchable. In case you cannot find fresh blueberries, you may go for the frozen ones.
- Banana: Look for a nice ripe banana for that perfect taste and texture. Unripe or tight bananas won’t mash well, which will not provide you with the optimal flavour.
- Almond Milk: I have used almond milk for this recipe as that would add the goodness of almonds to my baked oatmeal. You may use any other plant-based milk, like soy milk if you wish to.
- Vegan Yoghurt: Yoghurt helps provide freshness and creaminess to the recipe. You can use any good brand of vegan yoghurt.
- Maple Syrup: Maple syrup has multiple roles to play here. It binds the dish together and provides subtle sweetness as well as some colour too. I prefer using true maple syrup instead of pancake syrup.
- Coconut flakes and Cinnamon powder: Both provide a great flavour to the dish. Coconut flakes also help get a little crunch in the bite.
How To Make Bakes Vegan Oatmeal
Preparation: Gather all the necessary ingredients for the recipe. You can find the detailed list of ingredients and their quantities in the recipe card below. Preheat your oven to 180°C (OTG mode: upper rod + lower rod + fan) for 10-15 minutes.
Mash Bananas: In a bowl, take a ripe banana and mash using a fork. We don’t need to make a banana puree, so do not use an electric beater.
Add All ingredients: Now, take rolled oats, fresh blueberries, chia seeds, almond milk, maple syrup, coconut flakes, cinnamon powder and vegan yoghurt. Add all these ingredients one by one into the mashed banana and mix them well. Combine thoroughly.
Transfer into Mould and Garnish: Once the mixture is prepared, transfer it to a square glassware. Spread it evenly using your hands or spatula. Garnish the top with more fresh blueberries, dried cranberries and coconut flakes.
Bake: Put the dish for baking at 180°C (OTG mode: lower rod only) for 20-25 minutes. Look for some golden-brown colour on top.
Cool and Serve: After the oatmeal is baked, let it cool down a little and then drizzle some melted vegan dark chocolate. Cut in small portions and serve.
Chef’s Tips For The Recipe
Avoid Under Baking
Do not take the dish out before completing it’s baking time. The baked dish would have a crisp top but a gooey and chewy mixture underneath.
Serve as You Wish
The dish can be served warm or cold. I have cooled the dessert and served it in portions. If you want, you can serve it warm in the same glassware.
How To Store Baked Vegan Oatmeal
You can store the baked oatmeal in an airtight box in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
You can even store it in the freezer and extend it’s shelf life to 2 months. However, you will need to thaw and reheat it before serving.
