Firstly, I owe a huge thanks to the double J’s- Jenn and Juli.

Jenn for being the original naming queen of today’s post and Juli for once again, being my guinea pig to trial the recipe for taste, texture and satiety factor.

Let’s talk baked oatmeal.

J’adore baked oatmeal. 

Seriously, baked oatmeal is perhaps my favorite way to enjoy oatmeal. It’s filling, has a firm and tender texture on the outside but inside? It’s fluffy and just a little bit doughy. While overnight oatmeal and warm oatmeal are both delicious, if I had to choose, their baked counterpart takes the cake.

My favorite way to enjoy baked oatmeal is in this healthy sticky cinnamon roll baked oatmeal. However, being one who loves variety (and being a singleton!), I get bored after the third serving. Throw in the time factor- I needed some new method. Granted, the ‘time factor’ is still quite minimal compared to other recipes, but sometimes, I want something which can be single serve and take literally a minute- This hack has been my answer to it.

In this post, I mentioned that for me to feel satisfied after a meal, I need a solid balance of protein, carbs and fats. This healthy one minute overnight baked oatmeal completely fits the bill. So how does this work?

Easy.

When coming up with this healthy one minute overnight baked oatmeal, I had to play around with ingredients, proportions and swapped a few things out. 

In Overnight oatmeal- I’d usually include Greek yogurt and more dairy milk. 

In baked oatmeal- I’d usually add applesauce, banana and often an egg.

Bar the milk, I nixed all of the above ingredients in order to create a quick and easy breakfast which tastes amazing and has the BEST texture. 

In Juli’s words- This recipe kept her satisfied and full for hours.

This healthy one minute overnight baked oatmeal is filling, delicious and has incredible texture which resembles baked oatmeal but requires no oven at all! A simple prep the night before and a quick 60-second microwave the next day results in a delicious baked oatmeal, with an unconventional twist! It’s packed with wholesome carbohydrates, healthy fats and with the use of protein powder, gives a solid dose of protein. Not only that, but the chia seeds give that much more satiety- a breakfast guaranteed to keep you satisfied for hours! It’s also suitable for those following a vegan, gluten free, sugar free and dairy free lifestyle! 

HACK! Short on time or don’t have a microwave? This does indeed work in a toaster oven and a standard oven- You’d just need to decrease the baking time compared to traditional baked oatmeal and use a high broil (aim for 5-7 minutes, or until firm and golden brown on top). You also don’t need to technically make it the night before and can microwave it as is. 

Make this healthy 1 minute overnight baked oatmeal and stay tuned- I’ve got three delicious recipes based off this to share over the next week!

  1. You know I love my oatmeal! I eat something similar to this every single day after my run. Ugh, so good! Sometimes I eat it cold, sometimes I heat it. Definitey my most favorite meal of the day, especially after a tough run. I don’t understand people who don’t eat oatmeal!

  2. I love making bread and muffin things in the microwave. They are much more moist then their baked counterparts, but I like the gooeyness more. It’s like I’d rather eat cookie dough than actual cookies. My favorite way to eat oatmeal is probably as granola…I know that sounds like a complete switch, baked oats are crunchy but I love gooey things…but if you top gooey things with crunchy things, it works!

  3. I go through phases with oatmeal. Either I will eat eggs every day until I die or I will eat oats. Right now I’m in my eggs stage, but I’ve been there for awhile. Anything that only takes me one minute is alright in my book!

  4. Baked oatmeal is something that’s so much harder for me to make because I have to make multiple servings at once! However, it’s a superb way to cook oats! The protein powder would taste incredible in the oatmeal as well–especially chocolate!!

  5. I love, love, love oatmeal!! It’s always a treat getting stovetop oatmeal at my Gramma’s house. I’ve tried your cinnamon bun baked oatmeal and it was fab. Overnight oats I enjoy too, especially when I know I’m going to be short on time in the mornings!! But I prefer my oats warm as opposed to cold, so I’ll be trying this recipe out for sure!

  6. I really liked this recipe. Seriously I had lunch at 2 pm and wasn’t even hungry then. And the texture! Also it’s a great oatmeal hack in general.

    But now why did I make it look so ugly and yours looks so beautiful???

  8. This looks amazing, definitely going to give it a try! Are you able to make more than one at a time to put in the fridge (making them for a few days in advance) or would it become too soggy?
