This vegan and gluten-free strawberry shortcake baked oatmeal is the dreamiest breakfast ever!
I have been on SUCH an oatmeal kick lately! I wake up every morning with intense cravings for oatmeal! I’ve been making stovetop-cooked oats and overnight oats. However, I decided to go with BAKED oats today. Baking fruit (in this case strawberries) in with the oatmeal enhances the flavor of the fruit and it tastes AMAZING! Baked oatmeal is definitely more time-consuming than other ways of preparing it, but it is SO worth the wait if you have the time.
This baked oatmeal will literally make you feel like you are eating strawberry shortcake for breakfast! It’s so flavorful and satisfying. This meal will definitely be on repeat in my house! It’s especially good with some cashew butter or coconut butter drizzled on top!Vegan & Gluten-Free Strawberry Shortcake Baked Oatmeal: the most decadent breakfast!Click To Tweet

Strawberry Shortcake Baked Oatmeal
- Prep Time: 5 minutes
- Cook Time: 30 minutes
1/2 cup oats
1 tsp ground flaxseeds (optional)
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 mashed banana
1 tbsp vanilla protein powder (I recommend this one)*
3/4 cup almond milk
1/2 cup strawberries plus additional for topping
- Preheat oven to 350F.
- Grease a small ramekin with coconut oil.
- Add all ingredients (including strawberries) into a bowl and mix well. Pour into the ramekin and top with a few slices of remaining strawberries.
- Place in the oven and bake for 30 minutes.
- Remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes before eating. Drizzle coconut butter or cashew butter on top.
*If you don’t have vanilla protein powder add 1 tsp vanilla extract
**I didn’t add any sweetener as I didn’t feel it needed it. The vanilla protein powder and the mashed banana made it sweet enough in my opinion. However, feel free to add 1 tsp maple syrup to sweeten it more if you like.
