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!
If you love golden milk as much as I do, check out my other GML recipes: Golden Milk Latte Cookies, Chocolate Golden Milk Smoothie, Hot Chocolate Golden Milk Latte, and the quintessential Golden Milk Latte. But I also have a TON of baked oatmeal recipes you’ll want to try too: Blueberry Pie, French Toast, Chocolate Zucchini, Baked Apple Cider Oatmeal, Cherry Pie, Peanut Butter Apple, and more found right here.

A sweet, perfectly spiced baked golden milk oatmeal wonderful for a healthy, warm breakfast. Naturally sweetened and super delicious!
- 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
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.)
Mash banana in small/medium mixing bowl. Add golden milk latte, zucchini, and (optional) maple syrup and stir well to combine.
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.
Put mixture in ramekin and top with walnuts. Then bake for 20 minutes and let cool slightly before enjoying.
*You can use fresh banana or frozen-thawed banana. I've done both and they both work well.

Let’s pretend it’s fall, okay? This baked apple cider oatmeal tastes like fall, and we could all probably use a touch of autumn in the dead of summer. It’s intensely hot out there, but if it’s cool enough in the morning, you won’t regret making this dish for breakfast. You can also save this recipe for the fall though. Or…just do both. That’s what I’m gonna do! So let’s do this!
Remember those Peanut Butter Fudge Bites we made last week? Uh, yeah. We’re making a baked oatmeal with them today. Because why not? Peanut butter can do no wrong, and combining it with apple is a magical experience. Seriously. This is one of my better ideas, and I’m sure you’ll see why when you make this delicious baked apple and peanut butter fudge oatmeal!
It’s a baked oatmeal day. I mean, when isn’t it? Even when it’s 110F here in Phoenix, I still don’t mind baking up a delicious oatmeal. Because mmm! And this one is no exception, even with minimal common ingredients. It’s totally fruit-sweetened too, which makes me super happy. So let’s get into the kitchen while it’s still cool and make this yummy baked cherry pie oatmeal!
This recipe was kind of an oops recipe. I had no idea what new flavor to try, but I definitely wanted banana and zucchini in there (because zucchini is my favorite thing to put in my baked oats!). So I thought I’d add some coconut (because why not?) and DUDE. It came out amazing!! It tastes like banana bread AND zucchini bread, and that hint of coconut is the perfect way to bring it all together. Sure, it’s getting hot this summer, but it’s always a good time for something THIS good.
If you’re into sweet potato pie, you may want to try this baked sweet potato pie oatmeal out. Because it’s a totally legit way to eat pie for breakfast. It’s as easy as my other baked oatmeal recipes, though you do need to use cooked sweet potato. But baking a sweet potato is simple, so no worries. Just enjoy this (pie) for breakfast. Mmm!
When a friend comes up with a new baked oatmeal flavor, you try to make it. And sometimes you crush it in one try, like with this baked pina colada oatmeal. Mmmm, you guys!! This one is totally a hit. I absolutely love pineapple (see last week’s pineapple orange juice for further proof) and can’t wait to make more of this bad boy this summer. It’s like a delicious treat for breakfast, so you can’t go wrong.
This one got a huge “YES!” from Husband. I *really* wanted jelly-filled peanut butter muffins but thought I’d make a jelly-filled peanut butter oatmeal instead. When I asked Husband if he had a flavor preference for a baked oatmeal, he looked at me with stars in his eyes and said, “We have apples!” So peanut butter apple it was. And dude. SO glad we did it. Mmmmmm!!
Remember when we made sweet potato carrot cake muffins? No? Well, go check those out and then come right back, y’all, because we’re making some baked oatmeal with the same delicious flavor and just as much, if not more, nutrition! YUM! I used purple carrot shreds for this, but you can use orange (or whatever color carrot your heart desires). The taste will still rock your world.
Have any pineapple left from the sweet pineapple oatmeal we made on Monday? I sure hope so. Because we’re about to make some seriously amazing baked pineapple upside-down cake oatmeal. That’s right. We’re doing this. Come on. Get into the kitchen with me and make this deliciousness happen.
