I’m eating this baked chocolate strawberry oatmeal as I write up this post, and y’all? MMM! So good. It’s perfect for this morning, when we still had a chill in the air by 7:30. In May. WOW. But anyway, I digress.
Back to talking about this oatmeal.
Why haven’t I put it on the blog sooner? It’s not usually my go-to. This chocolate cherry one is. But our local grocery store had organic strawberries on sale for SUPER cheap and they were SUPER good, so I bought a lot of containers. Thus, this oatmeal has been made a few times. Also strawberry French toast oatmeal. And strawberry jam. And strawberry pie oatmeal (which you could follow this recipe for and swap blueberries for cut-up strawberries. Easy peasy!).
Yes. Another oatmeal. But honestly, this one HAD to happen. Can you even believe that I hadn’t done this before? HOW? I have no idea. But once I saw that we did NOT in fact have a baked pumpkin pie oatmeal recipe on this blog, I knew I had to remedy that. STAT. And I did. And I’m happy to report that it’s worth the wait!
Who’s surprised that this is another baked oatmeal recipe? No, not you? Yeah, me either. But this one was inspired by an air fryer cookbook I received for review from a friend of mine. This is not the recipe from her book, but I can’t wait to try that one (along with all the other ones in there because they all sound AMAZING)!
So, without further ado, thank you to Tess Challis for The Essential Vegan Air Fryer Cookbook! Because without it, we would not have this Baked Banana Churro Oatmeal today!
Yup. Another baked oatmeal. I’m on a roll with these lately. Though I need to ask this question: How was this not already a recipe on this blog?! It’s another one that isn’t groundbreaking. Not. At. All. It should have been up here a long time ago, but I honestly don’t think I made it before. Definitely won’t make that mistake again. LOL.
It’s the perfect marriage of peanut butter and chocolate – so move over, Reese’s, with your nonvegan candy. Let’s eat PB and chocolate chips for breakfast and call it a damn good day, shall we? 🙂
I’m back with a new baked oatmeal! Because what would this blog be without ANOTHER baked oatmeal recipe. Honestly. We don’t have enough of those around here, do we?
This one isn’t super groundbreaking. In fact, none of them are. But still. I think it’s delicious. A scrumptious combo that threw together nicely and made me super happy when it came out of the oven lookin’ like a whole snack. Well, lookin’ like a whole meal, to be honest. Nommm.
It’s been a long time! Lots and lots going on – mostly in my writing life. Mostly, I’ve been making the same recipes (and y’all know that my husband is the one who cooks). He’s also the one who found a recipe for this and made it into his own. Honestly, I don’t think I’d eat nearly as well without him. 😉 So here we go! Let’s do this. An easy, vegan, homemade Nutella sweetened with fruit, so it’s healthy and delicious.
Okay, you guys. I was hesitant to make this even though the idea struck me as genius. Basically, there’s a lot of sugar in here that doesn’t come from fruit or maple syrup, which I try to stay away from. But a treat every now and then should be indulged in guilt-free if you so choose. No pressure. But you may wanna try this. For breakfast OR dessert! 😉
It’s that time, y’all! PUMPKIN time!! I’m over here, sipping on a pumpkin pie smoothie (newer recipe coming soon!), having just finished writing a book, already wanting more of this pumpkin french toast oatmeal. Breakfast has never been more delicious this fall. Nommm. Let’s do it!
It’s super simple, you guys. I wouldn’t have it any other way. Simply mashed a banana in a bowl, add water, pumpkin, maple syrup, and spices, and then soak the bread. After you’ve added your oats and nuts, you pop it into the oven and wait (im)patiently for it to bake. Ta-da! Easy peasy fall-breakfast squeezy.
Pumpkin stuff is my jam! If it’s yours too, check out my Pumpkin Pecan Muffins, Pumpkin Pie Almond Butter Cookies, and No-Bake Pumpkin Pie. And if you love oatmeal like I do, try any of my other Baked Oatmeals like Carrot Cake, Chocolate Zucchini, Blueberry Pie, and Cookie Dough. YUM!
Let me know if you try this recipe! Comment below, rate it, or take a photo and tag me @fruitsohard or #fruitsohard on Instagram. I’d love to see your creations. And don’t forget to cultivate some positivity and gratitude today. Tell me in the comments what you’re grateful for if you’d like. Vibe high, my friends!
Try this pumpkin french toast oatmeal topped with pecans for a scrumptious fall breakfast that's easy to make! Totally vegan and can be GF!
- 1 ripe banana, mashed
- 3 tbsp water/nondairy milk
- 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 1/8 tsp cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1/8 tsp turmeric
- 1 dash black pepper
- 1 tbsp ground flax/chia
- 1 slice bread (use GF if GF / I like whole-wheat hot dog or hamburger buns for their thickness)
- 1/4 cup oats
- 1-2 tbsp pecan pieces
Preheat oven at 375 degrees F (190 C) and ready your ramekin (either with parchment paper or nonstick spray - I choose to bake this oatmeal without either).
In a medium bowl, mix mashed banana, water/milk, pumpkin maple syrup, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, turmeric, black pepper, and flax well.
Add chunks of bread and mix them so they soak the mixture up. Add oats and mix to combine. Then add pecan pieces and mix (or leave some to sprinkle on top).
Pour mixture into your ramekin and bake for 20-24 minutes. Let cool slightly before enjoying!

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!
