Ingredients needed for Pineapple Coconut Baked Oatmeal…

Pineapple Coconut Baked Oatmeal is made with all wholesome and simple ingredients. Tons of fresh tropical fruit, old fashioned oats, and unsweetened nondairy milk will make this one of your favorite healthy recipes!

  • Banana: 1 mashed banana is a delicious natural sweetener in this oatmeal bake.
  • Coconut Milk: Coconut milk adds coconut flavor and perfect creaminess to this recipe. 1 13.5 oz can is all you need!
  • Almond Milk: To add some extra moisture, you’ll also need almond milk or the milk of your choice. Add 1/2 cup!
  • Honey: 1/4 cup honey adds a delicious, refined sugar free, and natural sweetness here.
  • Pineapple: Fresh pineapple adds incredible flavor and a pop of sweetness to this recipe. 1 cup is the perfect amount.
  • Oats: This recipe calls for 2 cups old fashioned oats! Quick or rolled should also work.
  • Unsweetened Shredded Coconut: Shredded coconut adds an extra oomph of coconut flavor. 1 cup is just the right amount.
  • Vanilla Extract: Add 1 tsp vanilla extract for that classic flavor.
  • Baking Powder: 2 tsp of baking powder helps to bake this oatmeal to perfection!
  • Salt: Lastly, add a little bit of salt. 1/4 tsp to be exact!

Ingredient swaps…

There are a few basic ingredient swaps you can make to this easy recipe. Be sure to not change too many though, because then I can’t guarantee the final product will be the same.

Banana: You could replace the mashed banana in this baked oatmeal with unsweetened applesauce. This will most likely make things less sweet though, so add more honey if you’d like!

Shredded Coconut: Shredded coconut could be swapped out for coconut flakes. Or more oats, if you do not have either.

Almond Milk: You can use any milk you’d like in place of the almond milk here. Whatever is your favorite or you have on hand!

Honey: You could replace honey with any liquid sweetener of your choice. Pure maple syrup or agave should both work.

Frequently Asked Questions

What coconut milk should I use?

Can I use canned pineapple for Pineapple Coconut Baked Oatmeal?

Yes, you can use canned pineapple. Be sure to drain and rinse the pineapple and then chop as you would the fresh fruit. If needed!

What size baking dish should I use?

Any large baking dish can be used here. However, using a larger & shallow dish versus a smaller & deeper dish will affect the baking time needed.

Simply bake until the oatmeal is solid to the touch, it will be okay if the inside is a little mushy. It is still oatmeal after all!
