Why you’ll love this

Is there anything better than the sweet and cozy flavors of a cinnamon roll? This oatmeal recipe is packed with cinnamon roll flavor; it’s a delish breakfast treat!

I love baked oatmeals because they’re a great make-ahead breakfast option. You can meal prep this oatmeal on a Sunday morning, and then store the leftovers to be enjoyed all week.

Oats are also a great nutritious way to start your day. They’re high in soluble fiber, vitamins and minerals.

If you don’t always have the time to make a nourishing breakfast every morning for you and your family (life is crazy, who does!?), this is a perfect breakfast option.

The best part is that it’s easy! You don’t need a ton of prep time for this one. Throw all of your ingredients into a bowl (or straight into the casserole dish), mix well, and then bake in the oven. It could not be simpler.

Let’s get into what you’ll need!

Ingredients

Baked oats ingredients

You only need 10 simple ingredients to make this delicious cinnamon roll bake. It may seem like a lot of ingredients, but they’re likely things you already have in your pantry and fridge!

  1. Bananas
  2. Rolled oats
  3. Maple syrup
  4. Greek yogurt
  5. Eggs
  6. Milk of choice
  7. Vanilla extract
  8. Cinnamon
  9. Salt
  10. Baking powder

Cinnamon sugar topping

  1. Light brown sugar
  2. Cinnamon

Glaze topping (optional)

  1. Powdered sugar
  2. Milk

Personally, I don’t skip the brown sugar topping or glaze, but if you want to make this with less sugar, simply omit them (or choose one or the other!).

Step-by-step instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large mixing bowl (or directly in the casserole dish), mix the wet ingredients and dry ingredients together in one bowl: bananas, rolled oats, maple syrup, Greek yogurt, eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon, salt and baking powder. Combine the oat mixture well (I like to use a whisk).

Variations & recipe tips

  • Add walnuts, pecans or almonds to your oatmeal mixture before baking for a boost of healthy fats and crunch.
  • Add a drizzle of nut butter like creamy almond butter, peanut butter, cashew butter or sunflower seed butter instead of glaze.
  • Add chia seed or flax seed for a boost of fiber and healthy omega-3 fats.
  • Top with fresh berries or sliced banana before serving.
  • Add a scoop of protein powder for a higher protein baked oatmeal.
  • Add a scoop of pumpkin puree for a pumpkin cinnamon roll version!
  • For a higher protein breakfast, serve with vanilla Greek yogurt or eggs!
