Easy Vegan Banana Carob Chip Baked Oatmeal

Sharing is caring!

Your morning breakfast routine just got simpler with this easy vegan baked oatmeal recipe. Only 8-ingredients are needed to make this delicious banana chocolate chip baked oatmeal. This kid-friendly breakfast recipe is easily the best-baked oatmeal recipe ever!


Certified gluten-free old fashioned rolled oats are a staple in our house. We go through one 2-lb bag a month. Oats are a great, heart-healthy ingredient that I add to a lot of my baked desserts. My husband also uses them in his protein-packed, post-workout smoothies. If you’re like me and happen to have lots of oats on hand, I suggest trying out recipes like my Gluten-Free Apricot Crumble, gluten-free raspberry jam oatmeal bars, Easy brown sugar peach crisp, and of course this banana carob chip baked oatmeal.

For those of you living a vegan lifestyle, using the proper oats are crucial. Pre-packaged or flavored oats often contain non-vegan friendly ingredients like milk or whey. I suggest Bob’s Red Mill Certified Gluten-Free Rolled oats. I purchase them in bulk from amazon.

I’ve never made baked oatmeal before but woke up craving something other than my typical bowl of hot cereal. Marisa Moore’s Fresh Peach & Pecan baked oatmeal recipe was the perfect guide.

To ensure that this baked oatmeal recipe is allergy-friendly, here are a few key substitutions that need to occur. Regular baked oatmeal contains dairy and eggs, which will need to be substituted. Additionally, gluten-free baked oatmeal will require gluten-free oats – preferably certified. I also removed all nuts.

To be clear, I used carob chips in this recipe, but chocolate chips will work just fine. I am addicted to carob chips after making these cookies. Please note that vegan chocolate chips can easily be substituted in this recipe.

This recipe is merely a suggested guide for creating the best-baked oatmeal. You can add whatever you like from walnuts to baked pears or cranberries! Trust the ancestors, lol.


Cover with foil and reheat in a 350-degree oven for 20 minutes, or microwave individual portions on HIGH for 1 minute.

Baked oatmeal can be stored in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. For freezer storage, place slices of oatmeal on a parchment -ined sheet pan, then freeze until solid. Transfer the oatmeal slices to a freezer bag for longer-term storage. To reheat, microwave an oatmeal slice for 30-40 seconds.
