4 different flavors of easy high protein baked oats recipes

We all love a good old healthy breakfast, and I think most of us love a big old bowl of oatmeal. Eating baked oats is like eating fluffy cake, but with way more grams of protein.

They are so simple to whip up – you just add the wet ingredients and the dry ingredients into a blender or food processor and mix. Next, add the batter to a baking dish and bake for 25-30 minutes.

The best part is once you master the base recipe you can make so many different flavors. Adding fresh fruit, your favorite vegan protein powder, or melted chocolate can alter the taste of each recipe so much.

It’s simple to make a big batch for the entire family by simple tripling or quadrupling the oatmeal recipe. Alternatively if you are sticking to the single serving, you can use the air fryer to speed up cooking time.

You can also make the batter ahead of time and store in an airtight container till you’re ready to bake the next morning. It’s the perfect way to save time during your busy mornings.

You will need the following ingredients listed below to make these protein baked oats recipes (the exact measurements and full recipe are in each individual recipe card at the bottom of each post):

  • Gluten-free oats – which is turned into oat flour using a high power blender to create a fine powder. Not necessary to use gluten-free, but I do recommend using quick-cooking oats and avoiding steel cut oats.
  • Chia seeds – for some healthy fats.
  • Non-dairy milk – anything like unsweetened almond milk, coconut milk, oat milk, cashew milk or regular milk all work.
  • Brown sugar – maple syrup, honey or apple sauce for some sweetness.
  • Cream cheese – one of the key ingredients for the icing for many of these recipes!
  • Peanut butter – almond butter, cashew butter, sunflower seed butter, or your favorite nut butter of choice will all work.
  • Egg yolks and egg whites
  • Whey protein – vanilla protein powder, chocolate protein powder, or plant-based protein powder. Adding one scoop to these recipes act as a good source of protein.
  • Greek yogurt – a healthy protein source that is also used as the icing.
  • Vanilla extract – almond extract is also used in a few of the recipes below.
  • Coconut oil
  • Lemon juice
  • Lemon zest
