Tools You’ll Need

Recipe Tips

  • Round up all the ingredients first: Make sure you have ALL the flavor combination ingredients and not just the base ingredients before you start making this blended baked oats recipe!
  • What to bake blended oats in: We love baking our blended oats in 8-oz. ramekins, but if you don’t have any in your kitchen, any small oven-safe container will work, such as Weck canning jars, coffee mugs, Pyrex measuring cups, or even reduce the baking time and use a muffin tin.
  • Using instant oats: You can use both rolled oatmeal and quick cooking oatmeal in most baked oatmeal recipes, especially because you’re blending the oats before baking for this specific recipe.
  • Blended baked oats for meal prep: This recipe is AMAZING for meal prep. Store your blended baked oats in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. While you can leave your blended baked oats out overnight, they will last much longer in the fridge. Or, freeze for up to 3 months.

Charity of the Month

Each month we select a different charity to support. This month we’re supporting UNICEF, who provides humanitarian and developmental aid to children worldwide. 

UNICEF believes that nurturing and caring for children are the cornerstones of human progress. UNICEF was created with this purpose in mind – to work with others to overcome the obstacles that poverty, violence, disease and discrimination place in a child’s path. 

We’ll be doubling the match from our giveaway winners to donate $400 to UNICEF.

We would love for you to support our monthly charity and donate what you can.
