Baked Oats Recipe UK - Simple Baked Oats With Milk

The smell of oats baking in the oven in the morning warms my soul. There are two baked oats recipes in particular that are now staples on my weekly breakfast list. In this post I'll share with you these two favourites: one baked oats recipe with milk and packed with protein, and a second super simple baked oats recipe that takes 2 minutes to throw together and It's so yummy!

What makes these recipes even better is they are really low in refined sugar and packed with natural sweetness. These baked oats recipes are also full of fibre. A big tick for looking after your gut.


What Are Baked Oats?

Essentially baked oats are any combination of oats with something 'wet' which is then baked in the oven. For example, egg, banana, or milk etc can all be used as the 'wet' ingredient. Both of my favourite overnight oats recipes have bananas in them.

What I love about baked oats recipes is that they are low-effort in the mornings! I like to put mine in the oven while I do my morning sit-ups, yoga/stretch or spin on the Peloton.

What equipment do you need to make baked oats?

Just a baking dish big enough for 2 portions, something like the Malacassa ones or Keraiz ones on Amazon (below). You can bake in smaller portions too, for example, individually baked oats in smaller dishes, simply reduce the cooking time by 2 or 3 minutes so the oats don't dry out.

Are Baked Oats Healthy?

The word 'healthy' is relative to your perspective of what 'healthy' means, but in my opinion yes they are and here's why: Oats are a wholegrain, so they haven't been tampered with and support efficient digestion, they are packed with fibre, the sweetness in my own, and many other, baked oats recipes come from natural sources, the banana provides fibre, potassium, vitamin B6, vitamin C, and various antioxidants and phytonutrients which some claim have benefits including reducing inflammation. Plus recipes including milk provides a boost of calcium too!

Baked Oats Recipe With Milk


Makes 2 servings

30 minutes


  • Splash olive oil

  • 1 banana mashed

  • 60g oats

  • 2 tbsp chia seeds

  • 2 tbsp raisins (or any dried fruit)

  • 1 tsp Truvia (optional)

  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon

  • 50-150ml oat milk (I use Alpro) - I use 50ml as I prefer mine to come out crunchier

  • 4 tbsp dessicated coconut


  • Heat oven to 170c (fan)

  • Grease the baking dish with a little oil

  • Add banana, oats, chia seeds, cinnamon, Truvia and raisins and mix well

  • Add enough milk to soak oats etc but not ‘swimming’

  • Add berries, mix and a splash more milk if it looks dry. The key is to not overdo the milk, yet not be too dry.
