Nutella Baked Oats
If you love Nutella, these blended baked oats are for you! This recipe tastes like a rich, decadent dessert but it’s healthy enough for breakfast. It’s no surprise why this TikTok trend went viral!
I’m loving the blended baked oats trend because it’s just as healthy as a bowl of oatmeal, but blending and baking the oats really does make it taste more like cake! Of course, adding toppings like Nutella and banana help take this recipe up a notch! I’ve definitely enjoyed this recipe for dessert, but it really is still a nice way to start the day.
What exactly are blended baked oats?
These baked oats are made from blending raw oats with milk, eggs, banana, sweetener, and baking powder. Blending the oats creates a soft, cake-like texture. Since we are using oats instead of flour you do not need to worry about over-mixing the ingredients. Keep blending until everything looks really smooth. The mixture will look a little runny but it will firm up upon baking.
Ingredients & Substitutions
The basic ingredients for blended baked oats are oats, banana, egg, almond milk, and baking powder. From there, you can customize your own with your favorite toppings and mix-ins. For this recipe, I added additional cinnamon, banana and Nutella. It’s so rich and chocolatey, perfect for a dessert lover like me!
The Best Blender for Blended Oats
This recipe has been tested in a Magimix blender, a Vitamix, and a KitchenAid blender, however, this recipe will work in any blender, smoothie maker, or Nutribullet. You could even use a food processor. Check out my blog post on how to get the best results from your blender for more tips.
The Best Oats for Blended Oats
This recipe works with rolled oats (also called old fashioned oats) or quick oats. This recipe does not work with steel cut oats. Oats do not contain gluten, but be sure to check the package to ensure it’s gluten-free if you’re preparing these for someone with a gluten allergy.
Are blended oats healthy?
Yes! Oats are a whole grain which means they’re a good source of protein and fiber. These blended oats also contain potassium and fiber from the banana. If you’re looking for a lower sugar alternative to Nutella, try Justin’s chocolate hazelnut butter which has a lot of the same flavor with less than half the sugar.
How to Make Blended Oats
Frequently Asked Questions
- How should I store leftovers? Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days. Reheat in the microwave until piping hot.
- Can I make this recipe vegan? Yes! To make this recipe vegan use maple syrup and not honey. You can use flaxseed egg instead of egg. Combine 1 tbsp of flaxseed and 3 tbsp of water, allow to sit for 5 minutes then use in place of the egg in the recipe. You can even skip the egg altogether, it just won’t rise quite as much.
- Can I lower the sugar? Yes. Try Justin’s chocolate hazelnut butter which has a lot of the same flavor with less than half the sugar compared to Nutella.
- Can I double the recipe? This recipe can be increased easily. If you are making it in a larger dish with double the quantities, increase the baking time by ten minutes. You will know the oats are cooked when they have risen, feel springy to the touch and are shrinking away from the edges of the dish.
- Can I use dairy milk? I used almond milk because that is what the original viral Tik Tok recipe uses. However, we have tested this with cow’s milk and oat milk and the recipe works just as well. Use whichever milk is your preference.
- Can I skip the banana? You can substitute the banana for 1/2 cup applesauce.
