This Cinnamon Raisin Baked Oatmeal is the perfect way to start your day. It's creamy, comforting, and just the right amount of sweetness. The recipe is tailored for a single serving but if you're in the mood to share, it can be stretched to two.
Can you believe I never had baked oats until I made this recipe? Don't make my mistake and wait too long! I used wholesome ingredients to give your morning the jump-start it needs. Ingredients like fiber-rich oats, whole milk, and collagen peptides will keep you satiated until lunch.
Feel free to change it up depending on your preference or the season - add a mashed banana or grated apple, change out raisins for cranberries, or use different kinds of nuts. The possibilities are endless!
to make this cinnamon raisin baked oatmeal
This recipe is originally written for the oven, but I made it in an air fryer and it turned out great! Just make sure you play around with the time and temperature of your air fryer since they all vary. If you are using an oven, make sure you preheat it immediately. But most importantly, butter an oven-safe dish!
First, soak the raisins in hot water to plump them up. This makes them tastier and texturally more enjoyable, especially in baked recipes. You can also toast the walnuts if you have time. Dry toast them on a skillet or in a toaster for about a minute. Make sure to keep an eye on them because they can burn quickly.
Next, mix the liquids together in your oven-safe bowl. Dump in the dry ingredients in, plus the raisins and walnuts, and mix well. That's all it takes!
If you're using an air fryer, cover the bowl with foil and halfway through, remove the foil to get that golden crust. If you're using an oven instead, bake uncovered for the full 30 minutes.
Top it with your fruit of choice (bananas are always a classic) and whatever else you're craving. I kept it simple in this case and only used hemp seeds, but goji berries, granola, maple syrup, and peanut butter are just a few of my favorites. The world is your oyster here!
