Vegan Oatmeal Recipe – Serene Trail

This easy vegan oatmeal recipe makes a healthy breakfast dessert! Healthy oats are naturally sweetened and blended into a creamy mixture, then baked into a gooey, gooey cookie cake. Feed a group with this meal or eat it throughout the week!

There are many versions of this mixed oatmeal recipe on social media such as TikTok, so I would like to share this super simple, vegan version.

It’s amazing how these baked oats taste like dessert but are actually a nutritious breakfast!

The oatmeal is sweetened with a little maple syrup, bananas and a few chocolate chips.

The texture is a cross between a cake and a cookie. It’s rich, dense, almost fudge-y, warm and comforting.

These baked oats are pretty versatile. You can use this recipe as a base and customize it with your favorite mix-ins such as nuts, seeds and fruits.

It’s also a great make-ahead breakfast for busy mornings. Eat a slice cold or reheat it in the microwave. I like to drizzle with coconut yogurt, soy milk, or agave nectar. Yum!

Ingredients and Substitutions

  • Oats – Use old-fashioned, quick or rolled oats. Try to get organic oats if possible. You can also use gluten-free oats here.
  • Banana – Ripe bananas hold the oats together and add sweetness. Another option is ½ cup applesauce.
  • Peanut Butter – Peanuts, or any nut or seed butter, add moisture, protein and structure to this delicious breakfast.
  • Vegetable Milk – Use your favorite. I like the soy here to increase the protein.
  • Maple syrup -The rustic sweetness of maple syrup is so divine, but agave nectar can work too.
  • Baking powder – Just a little helps aerate and lift cooked oats.
  • Vanilla – Pure vanilla extract adds a touch of warm deliciousness.
  • Cinnamon – You can leave this out if you’re not a fan, but I think this really takes it to the next level.
  • Salt – Just a little to enhance and balance all the flavors.
  • Nuts – These are optional but so good! Use any sort of recipe for added crunch and protein.
  • Chocolate chips – These are optional, but amazing here. Be sure to check the ingredients to make sure they are vegan.
