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.

Baked Banana Coconut Zucchini Bread 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.

Baked Piña Colada Oatmeal

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.

Baked Peanut Butter Apple Oatmeal

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!!

Baked PB&J Oatmeal With Zucchini

Zucchini. In baked oats? Again? YES! The first time I did it was amazing, so I gave it another shot. Seriously, it’s my new favorite thing. I love being able to add veggies to my diet in a fun, new way. Especially as I’m eating fruit and these veggies taste like other really amazing things. Like peanut butter and jelly!

St. Patrick’s Day Baked Oatmeal

St. Patrick’s Day is tomorrow! So it’s a great excuse to make ALL the green recipes, including this one. Because I couldn’t let the Friday before St. Patrick’s Day go by without posting a GREEN baked oatmeal. Nope. No way. So let’s make some green baked oats for this festive occasion, shall we?

Fudgy Chocolate PB Zucchini Brownies

Brownies. They’re a glorious thing, aren’t they? I love them so freaking much. Mostly because I love chocolate. I have a huge sweet tooth, and that’s okay! I usually eat chocolate in the form of baked oatmeal or cookies made with oats (basically more oatmeal). But, right now, I’m really into adding zucchini in places where people don’t think it belongs. Like these brownies, for instance.

Baked Chocolate Zucchini Oatmeal

Zucchini. In baked oats? YES! Don’t discount this based on your first reaction. I promise it’s not as weird or gross as you might think. And that’s because I thought it was weird and gross, but I took Lauren’s (from The Oatmeal Artist) word for it and I’m SO glad I did. Honestly, I didn’t even know it was in there. It adds volume and veggies to a dish that normally wouldn’t have that. Veggies. For breakfast. YES. DO IT. Seriously, you won’t regret it. Especially when they taste like chocolate.

Chocolate baked oatmeal with zucchini? Oh yes! It's delicious, fudgy, and sweet, made with fruit and gluten-free oats! #fruitsohard #vegan #glutenfree #oatmeal #chocolate #zucchini
