What makes this baked oatmeal recipe healthy?
This baked oatmeal is a healthy, gluten-free and customizable breakfast to keep you fueled up. It’s got complex carbs from our oats, healthy fats from the egg, coconut, and coconut milk (or almond if you choose!) and antioxidants from our berries.
This one is a great way to start your morning, when you’re setting up for your energized day. Your body processes carbs throughout the day giving you the energy you need to thrive, work out, and go about your work. So morning (or pre/post workout) is a great time to get your baked oatmeal on!

Recipe: Healthy Coconut Baked Oatmeal
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 35 minutes
Skill Level: Easy
2 cups rolled oats
2 cups almond or coconut milk
2 TB melted coconut oil or butter
¼ tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
½ cup coconut flakes (¼ cup goes into the batter, then save the other half for topping)
2 TB honey (optional)
1 cup plain yoghurt
¼ cup coconut flakes
Berry compote (check out the recipe here!)
- Start by dry toasting all of your coconut flakes for topping in a pan over low heat for about 1-2 minutes. Watch them like a hawk so they don’t burn! Set aside for later.
- In a baking dish (22×35 cm works well, which is 9×14 in inches), add your eggs and whisk up. Then add in all your other ingredients, including half of the coconut flakes.
- Stir well, and set aside for 15 minutes to soak. Then preheat the oven to 375 F (190 C). Bake for 35-40 minutes until crispy on top.
