Baked Golden Milk Oatmeal

Clearly, I love golden milk. I make lattes, cookies, hot chocolate, smoothies… I can’t quit it. I don’t want to. So, today, we’re making a baked golden milk oatmeal to feed the obsession. I mean, when it’s healthy for you, is it really that wrong? Nope. I think not. So let’s do this!

This one starts out like all the rest: banana. But there’s no water needed this time because we’re using some of our golden milk latte instead. I haven’t quite figured out the right way to spice it yet without using part of the GML batch, but that’s probably because I nearly always have some GML in the fridge, waiting to be warmed up. So I’ll work on that. For now, behold!

It has that rich golden milk flavor, but it’s also sweet and comforting. The warmth from the spices matches the heat of the oatmeal once it’s been baked, and the walnuts on top give it a perfect texture combo, IMO. I’m really loving this flavor – and I look forward to making a chocolate version with the Hot Chocolate Golden Milk Latte recipe, which you can easily do with this!

A sweet, perfectly spiced baked golden milk oatmeal wonderful for a healthy, warm breakfast. Naturally sweetened and super delicious!

Course: Breakfast
Cuisine: Gluten-Free, Vegan
Keyword: Baked Oatmeal, golden milk
Servings: 1
What you'll need:
  • 1 ripe banana, mashed*
  • 1/2 cup zucchini (peeled and grated)
  • 1/4 cup Golden Milk Latte** (recipe in notes)
  • (optional) 2 tsp maple syrup (to taste - or sub 1 tbsp date paste)
  • 1 tbsp ground flax/chia
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1-2 tbsp chopped walnuts
What you'll do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (176 C) and ready a ramekin for baking with parchment paper or non-stick spray. (I don't use either of those - I bake right within my ramekin, eat straight from it, and wash or soak immediately.)

  2. Mash banana in small/medium mixing bowl. Add golden milk latte, zucchini, and (optional) maple syrup and stir well to combine.

  3. Add flax/chia and oats and stir again. You can add (some or all of the) walnuts here and stir or wait until the next step.

  4. Put mixture in ramekin and top with walnuts. Then bake for 20 minutes and let cool slightly before enjoying.

Recipe Notes

*You can use fresh banana or frozen-thawed banana. I've done both and they both work well.
