Is baked oatmeal healthy?
Yes, baked oatmeal is definitely healthy! Although I am not a nutritionist or registered dietitian, so do not take my words for absolute truth, I do believe that oatmeal is always a healthy breakfast option.
Especially this Strawberry Banana Baked Oatmeal! It is packed with fresh fruit, healthy fats, and complex carbs. The oats themselves are also loaded with nutrients. They are whole grain and a great source of vitamins, minerals, & fiber.
This oatmeal will also keep you full for hours! Plus you get all these benefits in the form of a truly delicious morning meal.
Ingredients needed for Strawberry Banana Baked Oatmeal…
All you need for this oatmeal is a few healthy, wholesome, and simple ingredients! This recipe is dairy free & vegan too. It can even be gluten free if you use certified gluten free oats!
- Oats: You can’t make oatmeal without oats! I love to use old fashioned, but I think rolled or quick oats would most likely work as well. You’ll need 2 cups!
- Banana: Lots of bananas are used here to naturally sweeten this oatmeal and of course add a delicious flavor. Add 2 mashed bananas to the oats and 1 sliced on top!
- Strawberries: Strawberries & banana go together like peanut butter & jelly! You’ll need 1/2 cup of chopped strawberries to compliment this Banana Baked Oatmeal.
- Nut Butter: Add the nut butter of your choice to this baked oatmeal. It adds a yummy flavor, a creamy texture, and some healthy fats too! 1/4 cup is the perfect amount. I used cashew butter!
- Maple Syrup: I love to use pure maple syrup in a lot of my sweet treat and oatmeal recipes. It is a refined sugar free, delicious sweetener. Add 1/4 cup!
- Almond Milk: I always use unsweetened vanilla almond milk in my recipes, but feel free to use the milk of your choice! You will need 1 1/3 cup.
- Vanilla Extract: 2 tsp of vanilla extract add that classic taste & flavor here.
- Baking Powder: Add baking powder to bake these oats to perfection. 2 tsp is great!
- Salt: You’ll need a little bit of salt to balance out the sweet here! 1/4 tsp to be exact.
How to make Baked Oatmeal with Strawberries and Bananas….
Strawberry Banana Baked Oatmeal really is so so easy to make! You pretty much mix & bake.
Here’s how to do it!
Set the oven to 400 degrees.
Then in a large mixing bowl mash 2 bananas. Add the nut butter, almond milk, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Combine evenly.

How to best enjoy Strawberry Banana Oatmeal…
I enjoy this baked oatmeal like I would enjoy a classic bowl of oatmeal! I typically add some nut butter, extra fruit, and a drizzle of honey on top of these oats to make the perfect breakfast. But the topping options are truly endless.
I also love to add a splash of almond milk to the slices of this oatmeal before heating up because it tends to get a bit dry in the fridge. A splash is all you need to fix it right up!
