Baked Oat Muffins Recipe

Baked oat muffins work brilliantly for portion control and a speedy breakfast. Good porridge takes time which is sometimes in short supply in the morning. I whip up a batch of these baked oat muffins on Sunday and then during the week just reheat and eat. Two minutes to a healthy breakfast.

If you like these, you’ll also like our blueberry baked oats – it is like cake with a big dollop of yoghurt, maple and coconut.

Baked Oat Muffins = Breakfast On the Go


I use an overripe banana instead of oil or butter in this recipe. It keeps the fat content down. I always have a stash of peeled, overripe bananas in the freezer for baked oatmeal and smoothies. Also, I have cut the sugar back in the recipe because I add a dollop of maple syrup before digging in.
