Cinnamon Roll Baked Oatmeal

This Cinnamon Roll Baked Oatmeal is easy to throw together and tastes just like an Ikea Cinnamon Roll. A baked protein oats recipe that feels super comforting and decadent but is healthy and naturally gluten-free.

Summer is coming to its end and I start craving warm and cozy breakfasts filled with warming fall spices. So here’s a protein baked oats recipe that screams cozy! Cinnamon Roll Baked Oats. 

These protein-baked oats burst with the flavor of warming cinnamon spices and are baked to perfection within minutes. Having cinnamon baked oatmeal in the morning feels like a cross between enjoying a cozy bowl of belly-warming oatmeal and an IKEA cinnamon roll for breakfast, all while keeping things gluten-free, high in protein and all over healthy.

The baked cinnamon roll oatmeal features a soft and flavorful baked oatmeal base loaded with cinnamon and vanilla flavor. What takes it to the next level is a cinnamon coconut sugar swirl and an optional topping of Greek yogurt cream cheese icing. These extra steps take only minutes and turn this into an oatmeal that really has all the flavors you love from a cinnamon roll!

The recipe itself is super simple. Just like with Tiktok baked oats, we blend all ingredients together and pour the mixture into our casserole dish. This recipe is for single serve baked oats so if you want to have baked oats for more than one, double it or triple it.

CAN I MAKE THIS IN AN AIR FRYER? 

You can absolutely make this in an air fryer. For air fryer baked oats I would divide the mixture between two small round ramekins. Simply spray your ramequins with non stick cooking spray. Divide the oat mixture between two ramequins and bake in the air fryer. Let the baked oats cool down for 5-10 minutes before topping with the icing and serving.

MAKE IT VEGAN

For vegan baked oats make sure to use a vegan protein powder. You can use vegan cream cheese and vegan yogurt for the icing. The oatmeal base is already vegan.

TIPS

  • Let the oatmeal mixture sit in the casserole for 5 minutes before adding the cinnamon swirl baking. This will give the oatmeal batter a chance to thicken up and you will have an easier time swirling the cinnamon mixture.
  • If you want, add a pinch of nutmeg, cloves, or cardamom to the coconut sugar swirl.
  • The baked oats will keep well in an airtight container for 2 days at room temperature and up to a week in the fridge. You can also freeze the cinnamon roll baked oats before or after baking and it will keep for up to 3 months

    I’m just curious…what size dish do you use for your baked oats?

    1. Hi Rosanna,

      I have a few different size dishes! One is about 6×4″ and the other ones are a bit bigger. The small dishes work best to create a fluffier baked oats so I recommend something around that size! I love going to thrift stores so you can pick and choose the shape and size you want, for a fraction of the cost! 🙂

  2. Bee Arnold says:

    Love the recipe.. how many calories would you say are in this dish?

    1. Hi Bee,

      Thanks so much for the 5 star review! Approx 395 calories with 35g of protein without the greek yogurt “frosting”.

  3. I’m obsessed with your baked oat recipes. This is by far one of my favs!

  4. This is so good! I used PE science snickerdoodle and made the swirl with cinnamon and erythritol. This is my favorite of your baked oats – they are all great though!
