Let’s be real. Oatmeal gets a bad rap. I, like many of you, once thought of it as a weird, bland, mushy thing that was exclusively for old people. However, that doesn’t have to be the case if you know how to dress it up right. Baked oatmeal is so easy to make, customizable, and full of protein, fiber, and fruit to supercharge your study sesh. Bonus: This breakfast makes you feel like you’re having a fancy brunch at a restaurant instead of eating just to get through finals season. 

Prep: 5 minutes 

Cook: 22 minutes 

Total time: 27 minutes 



1 banana 

1/2 cup oats 

1/2 cup almond milk (or other milk of your choosing) 

1/2 tsp baking powder 

1 capful vanilla extract 

1/3 cup blueberries (optional) or other fruit of your choosing 



Lemon zest 

2 tbsp peanut butter

Additional fruit of your choice for topping (optional)



  • Preheat oven to 350
