What are blended baked oats?

Blended baked oats, made famous by TikTok, offer a fun twist on traditional oatmeal. By blending whole oats with wet ingredients like milk or yogurt and then baking the mixture, you achieve a moist, cake-like texture.

This versatile dish, customizable with a variety of flavorings and mix-ins, combines the hearty goodness of oats with the indulgent feel of dessert, making it a popular and nutritious choice for breakfast.

What is Biscoff spread?


Biscoff spread is a creamy, sweet spread made from crushed Biscoff cookies (also known as Speculoos cookies). The spread captures that yummy cookie taste in a texture similar to peanut or almond butter.

It’s versatile and can be used in various recipes, spread on toast, dolloped on pancakes, or eaten straight from the jar. In essence.

Fun fact: Biscoff’s rise in popularity began when it was served as a complimentary snack on airlines. Travelers fell in love with its unique flavor mid-flight, leading to a surge in grocery store demand.

Ingredient Notes

Sugar-Free Maple Syrup: I love the Lakanto brand, which offers a yummy sweetness without the sugar. If you’re not into sugar alternatives, regular maple syrup works just as well.

Oats: Quick oats, rolled, or instant oats are best. Avoid steel-cut oats. You can also use oat flour.

Almond Milk: I prefer vanilla unsweetened almond milk in this recipe. However, you can easily substitute it with other plant-based milk options like oat or soy milk, or even traditional cow’s milk, depending on your taste.

Vanilla Greek Yogurt: Any vanilla Greek yogurt will work. My favories are Oikos Pro or Ratio Protein Yogurt ( which both also give you a really nice protein boost).

Chocolate Protein Powder: The flavor of your baked oats can be affected by the brand and type so it’s important to choose one that you enjoy. My favorites aer Clean Simple Eats Brownies Batter or Kos for a dairy free option.

Lotus Biscoff Spread: Biscoff Spread is typically available at local grocery stores. Trader Joe’s also has a Speculoos cookie butter that matches closely in flavor and consistency. Another option? Blend almond or peanut butter with a sprinkle of cinnamon and brown sugar to recreate its sweet-spiced essence.

Recipe Tips and Tricks

Start checking around the 20-minute mark to ensure the oats don’t turn out too dry. While our blended baked oats were perfect at 23 minutes, oven variations might alter your cook time slightly.

Overmixing isn’t a concern with this recipe since it has no flour. Though the mixture may seem too liquidy, trust the process; it’ll set nicely once baked.

Feel free to multiply this recipe, but remember that a bigger batch in a larger dish might need more bake time. You’ll know it’s done when the oats puff up, have a bouncy texture when pressed, and start pulling away from the dish’s sides.

Meal Prep and Storage

Prep in Advance: Whip up several servings for handy meal prep. While there’s nothing like the taste straight from the oven, they hold up well throughout the week. After cooling, pop them into an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 5 days.

Storage: Keep in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 5 days.

Freezing: You can make extra baked oats and freeze for later. Once cooled, wrap your baked oat in plastic wrap or foil, store in a zip-top bag, and freeze for up to 2-3 months; thaw in the refrigerator or at room temperature as needed.

Reheating: In the microwave, warm for 30-60 seconds or in a preheated oven at 350°F for 10-15 minutes until heated through.

Recipe Variations

Different Spreads:

Peanut Butter Dream: Swap Biscoff for peanut butter and maybe toss in some chocolate chips.

Nutty Almond: Replace Biscoff with almond butter and sprinkle some roasted almonds on top.

Fruit Add-ins:

Tropical Twist: Add in some shredded coconut and chunks of pineapple or mango.

Berry Delight: Fold in some mixed berries before baking.

Flavor Enhancers:

Coffee Buzz: Incorporate a shot of espresso or a spoon of instant coffee for a caffeine kick.

Zesty Lift: Grate some lemon or orange zest into the mixture before baking.

Different Base:

Vanilla Bliss: Opt for vanilla protein powder for a classic and mild undertone that lets the Biscoff shine.

Pumpkin Pie: Add pumpkin puree and pumpkin spice for a fall-inspired version.

White Chocolate Indulgence: Swap the chocolate protein powder for vanilla or white chocolate-flavored protein powder, and mix in white chocolate chips. Drizzle with melted white chocolate post-baking for an extra luxurious touch.

Protein Boost:

Seeds & More: Throw in some chia seeds, hemp seeds, or flaxseeds for added texture and protein.

Collagen Boost: Mix in some unflavored collagen powder.

Vegan Version:

Use plant-based protein powder, vegan yogurt, and ensure your chocolate or other add-ins are vegan-friendly.

Spice It Up:

Gingerbread Version: Add ginger, nutmeg, and cloves for a gingerbread twist.

Caramel Dream: Incorporate some caramel extract or top with a caramel drizzle.

Are blended oats healthy?

Blended oats are a fantastic choice for those looking to eat healthy. They are loaded with fiber, whole grains, and protein that boost energy and satisfaction. They also assist in stabilizing sugar levels.

However, when adding yummy ingredients like Biscoff spread, which is on the sweeter side, it’s good to be mindful. While it brings a delicious flavor twist, it does contribute additional sugars.

Pro tip: Balancing more indulgent ingredients (like Biscoff) with others that are nutrient-dense (such as oats and Greek yogurt) ensures a tasty yet mindful meal.

Toppings for Biscoff Baked Oats

Looking to take your Biscoff Baked Oats to the next level? Toppings can be a game-changer. Here are some of my favorites:

Fresh Fruits: Banana slices, berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, chopped apples with a sprinkle of cinnamon

Nuts and Seeds: Chopped walnuts or pecans, slivered almonds, chia seeds or flaxseeds for added fiber

Drizzles: Melted dark chocolate or chocolate chips or honey or maple syrup for a touch of added sweetness.

Dairy and Alternatives: A dollop of Greek yogurt or a plant-based yogurt or whipped cream or coconut whipped cream for indulgence

Crunch: Granola or muesli for added texture or cacao nibs for a chocolatey crunch

Spices and Extras: A sprinkle of cinnamon or nutmeg or shredded coconut
