Ingredient Notes:

  • Gluten Free Oats – Use rolled oats and not quick oats. Quick oats are okay in a pinch, but your baked oatmeal will be mushier.
  • Eggs – Use size large.
  • Bananas – Ripe bananas are best. Place them into a paper bag the day before to ripen bananas quickly.
  • Non-Dairy Milk – Use any non-dairy milk or regular milk.
  • Maple Syrup – Use real maple syrup. Check this list to ensure your maple syrup is gluten free. 
  • Apple sauce – Use regular or unsweetened applesauce.
  • Butter – I recommend using unsalted butter. If you are dairy-free, a plant-based butter is fine to use.
  • Mix-Ins – I used raisins and pecans; you can use any mix-ins. See below for some yummy ideas.

Tips For Success:

  • Use certified gluten free old-fashioned rolled oats. Using certified gluten free oats is critical. Wheat and oats are typically grown close together, with high cross-contamination risks. Gluten free oats are grown with a special purity protocol to prevent this cross-contamination from occurring.
  • Be sure to grease the baking dish to make cleaning up easier.
  • Use dairy-free milk like unsweetened almond milk or another non-dairy milk if you are dairy-free

Step-By-Step Photos and Directions:

Step 2: Add the gluten free rolled oats, and the other dry ingredients, to the wet ingredients.

Step 3: Mix well and allow the mixture to sit for 15 minutes. This will help the oats soften by absorbing the liquid. Preheat the oven to 350º F.

    1. Hi Amber, the butter is considered a wet ingredient and is mixed in with those. The cinnamon, salt, and baking powder are added to the dry ingredients (oats.) I hope this helps.

      I have been baking something similiar to this for several months. I love it and have it for breakfast 3 or 4 times a week. I have made several varieties but my current favorite is to skip the bananas but add peaches. I drain and chop a large can of peaches and add it in. I warm it in the microwave and top it with a bit of whipped cream, yogurt or, my current favorite, tapioca pudding.
