Ingredients and Substitutes

Medium bananas – Make sure the bananas are as ripe as possible

Eggs – An essential binder to keep the bake together. If you’d like a vegan version, use a flaxseed egg substitute.

Honey – Natural sweetness is the right call for this dish. Maple syrup or white sugar can also work.

Butter – For richness, this can’t be beaten! However, margarine will do in a pinch.

Almond milk – Any milk or alternative milk will do here.

Vanilla extract – Warm and delicious, vanilla extract is an essential ingredient in this tasty bake.

Baking soda – Important for helping the bake rise, but don’t use too much!

Cinnamon – Also adds some warmth to the dish, perfect for that fall flavor profile.

Salt – Cut through the sweetness with some cracked sea salt.

Rolled oats – Rolled oats are important here because they soak up liquid well!

Chocolate chips – The chips melt perfectly as the oatmeal bakes, which is why this is so tasty when served warm. Choose any chocolate that strikes your fancy.

Shredded coconut – You can’t have the chew without the coconut.

How to Make Baked Oatmeal

Step 1. Grab a large bowl and your bananas. It’s time to mash! Use a fork to mash your bananas into a chunky paste.

Step 2. On top of the bananas, add your cracked eggs, honey, butter, almond milk, vanilla extract, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.

Step 3. Stir the mixture until just combined. Some banana chunks will stay in the mixture, but don’t worry, that just adds texture.

Step 4. Toss the rolled oats and chocolate chips into the same bowl. This is your chance to add any additional flavorings like nuts!

Step 5. Stir to combine, making sure all the ingredients are evenly mixed for the best bake.

Step 6. Transfer your mixture to a lightly greased baking dish. Sprinkle liberally with coconut to create a delicious crunch!
