No need for eggs or dairy in this easy vegan baked oatmeal. Use your favorite non-dairy milk to make it wholesome, healthy and delicious!
Baked oatmeal is one of my all-time favorite healthy breakfasts. It’s like some wonderful bread pudding-oatmeal hybrid, thick and comforting and just a little sweet. The oats are filling and nutritious, and the best part is it’s already made. Make a batch, and you have healthy, easy breakfasts all week long. Lovely!
But Houston, we have a problem: most of the baked oatmeal recipes I’ve seen inexplicably – yes, I went there – inexplicably call for eggs. What? Why? No.
In my opinion (which I’m freely scattering about today), there’s no reason to put eggs in baked oatmeal. It holds together just fine without them. Vegan baked oatmeal works. Yay, and yum!
I love adding apples, pecans and raisins to my baked oatmeal. Sweet, crunchy old-fashioned flavor. I never peel the apples, btw. The skins bake up soft, and they add pretty color and a lot of fiber. And not peeling is easier than peeling, so…yeah!
I love using nut milks in my vegan baked oatmeal. Less calories, better taste, and dairy-free. This Silk Cashew Milk is my favorite at the moment, and they’re not even paying me to promote them. This is a volunteer effort! Which should tell you how amazing this stuff is.
I adapt my vegan baked oatmeal recipe from Betty Crocker’s Baked Apple Oatmeal. It’s seriously one of the only baked oatmeal recipes I’ve seen that doesn’t include eggs, so trying it with non-dairy milk wasn’t a stretch. I’ve added some tweaks to make it healthier and have a little more flavor, cause there’s nothing I like more than a little more flavor.
If you want to see some baked vegan oatmeal in action (of course you do!), check out this awesome video by Deliciously Ella. Here she’s making a blueberry banana baked oatmeal, which sounds amazing. She makes hers very much like I make mine, except I use a lot more milk.
