We love all things cinnamon roll around here. Our favorites include keto cinnamon rolls, yeast free cinnamon rolls, and this wholesome cinnamon roll baked oatmeal.

Seriously, as someone who loves breakfast, I love it even more if it tastes like dessert.

This baked cinnamon oatmeal ticks all the boxes.

It’s dense, chewy and if cooked perfectly, barely crumbles when cut into. Not only is it delicious to eat, but it’s also sinfully nutritious.

That’s right- It’s healthy, high in fiber, and comes with a high protein option too.

How to make cinnamon roll baked oatmeal

The Ingredients

  • Rolled Oats– Old fashioned oats give the baked oatmeal that chewy and satisfying texture. Be sure to use gluten free oats, to keep this recipe gluten free.
  • Quick Oats– You want to use some quick cooking oats, to avoid too dense of as texture.
  • Granulated sweetener of choice– Gives the cinnamon baked oatmeal sweetness. Any granulated sweetener will work, like coconut sugar, brown sugar and even sugar free alternatives.
  • Baking powder– Gives the baked oatmeal some rise and fluffiness.
  • Cinnamon– A must for some extra cinnamon flavor. Use Saigon cinnamon for a more robust cinnamon flavor.
  • Eggs OR flax eggs– You can use either whole eggs or flax eggs, to keep them vegan. If you use eggs, ensure they are at room temperature.
  • Milk of choice– I used almond milk, but any milk of choice will work.
  • Vanilla extract– Gives a slight vanilla flavor.
  • Almond butter– Almond butter gives the cinnamon roll baked oatmeal a delicious buttery and rich texture, without any butter or oil! You can use any nut or seed butter of choice.

The Instructions

Making this cinnamon baked oatmeal recipe is so easy- No fancy mixers or prep time required.

You’ll start by mixing together your dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Next, you’ll add your wet ingredients and mix well, until a thick batter remains. Transfer the cinnamon oatmeal bake batter into a greased baking dish and bake at 180C/350F for 35-40 minutes, until golden on top. Remove from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes, before drizzling with icing, if desired. Serve soon after or cool completely to store for later.

Cinnamon Roll Icing Ideas

  • Powdered Sugar– Combine powdered sugar with cinnamon and slowly add water or milk, until a smooth glaze remains. Drizzle over the tops of the baked oatmeal.
  • Coconut Butter– Room temperature and smooth coconut butter drizzled over the top.
  • Protein Frosting– Combine vanilla or cinnamon bun protein powder with water and mix until a thick ‘frosting’ remains. Spread or drizzle over the top.

Cinnamon Roll Baked Oatmeal Tips

  • For portable cinnamon roll breakfast bars, cook the baked oatmeal closer to 50 minutes. They will be more dense and chewy, and perfect for grab and go breakfast bars.
  • Do not add the glaze over the top of the baked oatmeal until it is completely baked, otherwise, it will sink into the batter.
  • To amp up the protein content, add 1-2 scoops of your favorite protein powder into the dry mixture.
  • To make single serving portions of the baked oatmeal, bake in single serving ramekins or mini loaf pans.
  • If your baked oatmeal is slightly overcooked, remedy it by pouring 1/4 cup of your favorite milk over it to soften it up.

Storing, Freezing and Reheating Baked Oatmeal

  • To store: Leftover baked cinnamon oatmeal should be stored in the refrigerator, in a sealable container. It will keep well for up to 1 week.
  • To freeze: As baked oatmeal is freezer friendly, you can freeze portions to enjoy later. Place the baked oatmeal in a freezer friendly container and it will keep well in the freezer for up to 6 months.
  • To reheat: Either reheat the oatmeal bake in the microwave or in the oven. If you use the oven, place portions in a baking dish and heat at 180c/350F until warm on top.
