I love having a few prepped breakfast and snack options lying around, and baked oats are a FAVORITE over here. Not only are they delish, they are easy to make, quick to serve, and full of all sorts of things that are good for our bodies. They’re healthy enough for myself of my kids for breakfast, but they can totally double up as dessert, or an afternoon treat! Check out these recipes for some of the best baked oats.
Brownie Baked Squash Oats
If you’ve hung out with me for a while, you know how obsessed I am with brownie baked squash oats. They’re so weirdly addicting. Sophia’s breakfast and dessert. My favorite afternoon treat. We’re both fighting for the last piece.
I never want to trick you with these brownie baked squash oats, so I need to make my disclaimer. They’re not brownies or cake. Those need FATS— butter or oil etc. So don’t be expecting crispiness or chewiness or fudginess. This is more of a firm square of chocolate oatmeal… made extra “macro-friendly” since it’s bulked up with squash, and I’m hooked! But I’m telling you, with a little whipped cream and fruit…. maybe some peanut butter and a drizzle of cashew milk, this transforms into something amazing and decadent! Obsessed.
Snickerdoodle Zucchini Baked Oats
Oats have to be done right for me, otherwise they can blow through carbs way too fast for me. Who wants ⅓ cup of oats and that’s it? It’s like four bites. BOOO.
This is why I love bulking up my baked oats with veggies. These snickerdoodle zucchini baked oats are packed with zucchini so you can fill your whole BOWL! And still be good to your macros. If you’re into that.
Just remember, these snickerdoodle zucchini baked oats may have the flavor of a cookie but they don’t have that cake-y texture. With all of the moisture from the zucchini, it’s more similar to bread pudding maybe?? But I LOVE them! Especially once they’re all decked out. We prefer them cold, with a little almond milk Reddi Whip and some berries. But top with your favorite toppings!

Dairy-Free Lemon Blueberry Baked Zucchini Oats
Don’t let the long name of this recipe for dairy-free lemon blueberry baked zucchini oats scare you off. I know it’s a mouthful. But, there were just too many key players to choose from, so I had no choice but to use them all.
These dairy-free lemon blueberry baked zucchini oats are one of the few “breakfast” foods that actually check off all of my boxes. They’re sweet, but not overly sweet. And they have the refreshing lemony zing. It’s a classic flavor profile — can’t go wrong.
Pumpkin Pie Baked Protein Oat Bars
You can follow the rules and wait ’till Fall for these. Or go crazy and make them year round. These pumpkin pie baked protein oat bars are amazing. Again, they’re stuffed full of veggies and protein and the macros are KILLER.
