Another thing that makes baked oatmeal so great is that it can be made ahead of time.  I usually make a double batch and stick one batch in the freezer.  That way, if I am feeling lazy one morning, I have a healthy breakfast option to pull out of the freezer. Just reheat and you are good to go!

I must admit, I am not a fan of carrot cake anything.  My husband is a huge fan of anything carrot cake, so he tasted tested these and gave his approval!  It took me two tries to get this recipe perfect.  I hope you enjoy it.

The oatmeal you can take on the go!



  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Mix all the dry ingredients together in one bowl .
  3. Mix wet in another.
  4. Add dry to wet and mix until combined.
  5. Spoon mixture into lined muffin pans .
  6. I used jumbo and got 6. If you use standard, you will get 12.
  7. I baked the jumbo sized oatmeal for 20 minutes. If you do standard sized, you probably need to bake for less time. I am guessing about 12-15 minutes.


Recipe Notes

I used jumbo muffin pans and baked these for 20 minutes. If you use standard muffin pans, you will need to bake them for less time. I would check on them after 10 minutes. My guess is the standard sized oatmeal would take about 12-15 minutes. Store these in an airtight container in the fridge. They should last a couple weeks that way. You can also freeze them for longer storage.

  1. If I wanted to make this in a 8x8 pan how long would I bake them for? Or is it even enough for that size pan?
  2. I do not have dried pineapple and want to make this tonight! What can I sub? Dates? Dried cranberries? Fresh pineapple? I really do not want to wait. :-)
  3. I would not hesitate to use any dried fruit -- raisins would be my first choice. I think cranberries or any dried fruit would work. I am not sure about fresh or canned pineapple. I think it might be too moist. It would taste good, but might crumble, etc. I think a handful of nuts would work and maybe even a few dark chocolate chips. I have not tried the recipe, but I will.
  4. I made these last night after finding the recipe off Pinterest. OMG, they are THE BEST(healthy) breakfast muffins I have ever made. Not soggy, very filling and super easy to make. Thank you so much for coming up with these - I plan to add them to my regular recipe circulation! :) PS I cooked mine in a 12 muffin pan with liners (as suggested) for approximately 16m. ~Lisa Marie, Halifax, NS Canada
  5. Thank you for sharing this recipe! These are SO GOOD! We doubled the recipe and used dates instead of adding more syrup and they sre still plenty sweet. This is for sure a new favorite for a quick kid breakfast in our house!
  6. Since I love your carrot cake lara bar bites, I'm thinking these will be as fantastic as they have similar ingredients. I can not wait to make these! Tx (:
  7. Just made these and they are Fantastic! My children loved them too. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I used raisins as I didn't have pineapple and they came out great.
  8. I made these yesterday and they turned out really good. My hubby thought they were tasty as well. Now I want to try the maple cream oatmeal treats. Thanks for all you do Melissa!
    1. Thank you for sharing. So if you make 12 standard sized ones it equals about 111 calories each. Not bad!
