If you love cinnamon rolls, you have to try this cinnamon roll baked oatmeal! It’s so easy to make. In fact, you can mix everything right in the baking dish so the cleanup is easy! Plus, this recipe reheats well, so it’s great to make at the start of the week and enjoy all week long! Even my toddler loves this recipe, so I’ve been making it repeatedly at our house. I made this recipe with almond milk and chia seeds to keep it vegan, but you can use milk and eggs if you prefer.

Ingredients & Substitutions

  1. Rolled oats– Rolled oats are the base of the dish, providing a hearty and wholesome texture. Use certified gluten-free oats if you have an allergy. Do not substitute steel-cut oats as they cook differently. If you’re looking for a recipe with steel-cut oats, try my baked steel cut oats instead.
  2. Baking powder– This adds a leavening agent to help the oatmeal rise and achieve a softer texture.
  3. Chia seeds or ground flax seeds– These act as a binding agent and contribute to the texture of the baked oatmeal. You can substitute the chia seeds or flax seeds with two eggs.
  4. Vanilla– A splash of vanilla extract adds a sweet and aromatic flavor, enhancing the overall taste profile.
  5. Salt- A pinch of salt enhances the overall flavor by balancing sweetness and adding depth.
  6. Cinnamon- Ground cinnamon adds the characteristic flavor associated with cinnamon rolls.
  7. Maple syrup- Adds natural sweetness to the dish. Honey or agave syrup can be used as alternatives.
  8. Almond milk– This helps to create a creamy texture. Any milk of your choice — such as cow’s milk, soy milk, or oat milk — can be used as a substitute. If you want to add more protein to this recipe, use soy milk.
  9. Powdered sugar– I added a little “frosting” to make this taste even more like a cinnamon roll. You can skip it if you want to reduce the sugar.
