Ingredients and Variations
Oatmeal – Use rolled oats or old-fashioned oats for a thicker, chewier texture that absorbs the egg mixture and spices without getting soggy. Quick oats won’t have the same texture and will affect the cooking time.
Sweetener – You can substitute the sugar for your favorite sweetener or maple syrup. If using maple syrup, reduce the almond milk to 1 ⅓ cup.
Fruit – Use fresh or frozen blueberries (no need to thaw first). Don’t overload with too many berries or nuts. Dried fruit like raisins can be added as well.
Nuts – Any nuts or coconut will work! Almonds, walnuts, pecans, and even coconut will add a crunchy (and healthy!) bite to baked oatmeal.
Pro Tip: Toast nuts (and coconut) in a dry sauté pan before using to burn off some of the oil and make them extra crunchy!
Topping – Feel free to double up the batch of this super versatile streusel topping for your other favorite baked goods like blueberry muffins, blueberry buckle, or even on top of homemade no-churn ice cream. Omit the sugar altogether or use your favorite sugar-free replacement, if desired.
- Try pitted cherries, cranberries, chopped apples, or pears. Thaw larger frozen fruits first or chop finely.
- Stir in some peanut butter or chocolate chips.

- Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl per the recipe below.
