Strawberry Banana Baked Oatmeal Singles
I found a really perfect container of strawberries at the grocery store this week and immediately thought I’d make these Strawberry Banana Baked Oatmeal Singles. I already had ripe bananas at home and I’m obsessed with baked oatmeal, so it’d be perfect, right? Well, I “accidentally” ate the whole pint of perfect strawberries before this recipe had a chance, but once I made these later in the week, I was really glad I went back for more.
Strawberry Banana may seem more like a smoothie combo, but the ripe mashed banana gives the oatmeal amazing flavor and the juicy bursts of strawberries are just perfect. The recipe comes together very quickly and these make a great portable weekday breakfast on-the-go. To view your WW PersonalPoints for this recipe and track it in the WW app or site, click here!

Can’t make these until my mom the snowbird goes back home. Currently buying TWO bunches of bananas every other day trying to get some ripe ones, but sadly, or gladly, they are all being consumed.
Hahaha, I hope you try them once you can get a hold of a ripe one! 😉
Hello Emily: Do the oats need to be blended first? To make more of a flour texture? Thank you.
Nope! Just stir them right in 🙂
Emily, can I use instant oatmeal for this?
Love your recipes 🙂
I recently made your chocolate chip banana oatmeal muffins and I am not sure but the bottoms were soggy, I am assuming they just didn’t cook long enough or is that they way they are suppose to be???
I will try these next…Thx for all the great recipes and including the points 🙂
It could be that they need to cook longer. All ovens are a little different. Try them for a few minutes longer and it will probably help 🙂
These look delicious!!! I have never made any baked oatmeal.
I am a fan of all of the Emily baked oatmeal singles. I love to have a “Emily Muffin Marathon” on the weekend and make 3 or 4 kinds and freeze (as well as your savory muffins). They are perfect for a grab and go with a container of yogurt. Breakfast is my biggest meal of the day. They are dense in texture and very filling…Thank you!!!!
Can you use cupcake liners?
I made these last night and they are delicious. Followed the recipe exactly (except for a dash of cinnamon). My daughter (10) ate one as soon as it was cool enough and asked for one this morning for breakfast. I may have to make another batch tonight. I plan to make some of your other ones. Keep these treats coming.
I’m so happy you and your daughter both loved them! Thanks so much for letting me know 🙂
Hi can I use frozen strawberries? I have a huge bag. Maybe let them defrost and squeeze out some of the excess water?
It sounds like that would work just fine 🙂
I made these this afternoon, and loved them. My toddler loved them, and my thirteen-month-old loved them. I posted a photo on my blog. Thinking of trying them with apples and cinnamon next time (because we always seem to have apples around here). Thanks for such a great one, Emily!
I actually have an apple cinnamon version! http://emilybites.com/2013/09/apple-cinnamon-baked-oatmeal-singles.html
Glad they were a hit! 🙂
Aah, perfect! Thanks, Emily!
I loved these! I’ve tried the blueberry as well but these are my favorites. Thanks for sharing!
Yay! Glad to hear you loved them 🙂
I made these last night and they are delicious. The kids loved them, too. I cooked them for the maximum time and they were still very wet though. They kept their shape, but weren’t dry like a muffin. Is that correct?
Hm, they should be moist from the banana, but I wouldn’t say wet. These definitely aren’t like traditional muffins.
Are these mini muffins or regular size?
regular size 🙂
Can almond milk be substituted?
Oh my heck these are delish. I forgot the milk, funny since while I was blending the wet and dry I was thinking this is not very wet, but they still turned out good. Thank you for sharing got to try the others now.
Made these today, they taste so good!! Wanted to try the blueberry ones, but the shop had run out of blueberries, but after making these & loving them I will be definitely giving the other flavours a go 🙂 so glad I found your blog!
LOVE these! What a great concept – individual baked oatmeal. Great breakfast, especially for mornings when we are rushing out the door. I freeze the leftovers and they make great afternoon snacks. I’ve lost track of how many people I’ve passed your recipe on to, even posting it on 100daysofrealfood as a snack idea. Thanks!
Hi! May this be made with steel cut oats instead? Thanks so much!
Thank you for this great recipe! They came out so tasty; I had dried strawberries so I increased the milk just a bit and WOW! Going into my meal prep rotation 🙂
Can these be frozen?
can you use frozen Strawberries?
I am looking to pre-make breakfast items to refrigerate or freeze and heat up quickly in the morning. Do these oatmeal muffins do well with that process?
They sure do! 🙂
ahh I tried to make these, … am trying to make them, they have been in the oven for something like 45 minutes now. I think I made them too big/the oven was too hot, and the edges/tops are catching but the insides are still goop, I’ve turned the temp down too… I’m on 150C (fan oven) right now and just waiting it out lol. How big are your cups? Mine are like 3-4 inches wide and 1-2 deep.
P.s. The smell is still something out of a dream ^-^
Oh my goodness, I’m not sure where to start! Haha. I noticed you’re stating temperatures in celsius so I’m guessing you’re not in America. I’m not sure what 150C is in fahrenheit, but maybe the temperature conversion you did for your oven was incorrect? I also wasn’t sure if when you said cups you were referencing measuring cups (which are standard sizes we use in America) from the ingredients or the size of the muffin cup areas in the muffin tin (in which case 3-4 inches by 1-2 inches would be huge). I’m not too sure what went wrong or got lost in translation, but I’m sorry to hear it was a struggle! Glad to hear it smelled yummy and I hope it eventually worked out!
I can’t eat bananas, even though I love them! Do you think this recipe would work ok with applesauce instead of bananas? If so, would I use the same amount? Thank you!! I’ve LOVED all of your recipes I’ve tried!!
Hi Candice, I have a whole bunch of other baked oatmeal singles that don’t use bananas! Some of them do use applesauce, but if you are looking to do strawberries, I’d suggest using this one for blueberry oatmeal singles and just switching the berry 🙂 http://emilybites.com/2014/12/blueberry-baked-oatmeal-singles.html
If you want to see all the oatmeal singles just go to my recipe index and click on “oats” in the ingredients section 🙂
These look delicious but how long does it take to make them?
Made these today – yum! Quick and easy to make, and I love how the banana flavor doesn’t overpower the muffin. I’ll definitely be making these again. Thanks for a great recipe!
(And for the previous commenter – It took me maybe 10 minutes to mix it up, and the 20ish minutes to bake that were noted in the recipe)
How many bananas to make 2/3 cup?
It used 2 medium size bananas to make 2/3 cup.
This looks great! Do you think frozen banana would be an acceptable substitute for fresh in this recipe?
You have to be able o mash the banana, so as long as it was ripe when frozen and you bring it to room temp to mash it I don’t see why not!
Well, I made these today on my day off.
I followed the directions perfectly.
Im sorry…but I was really disappointed… I thought these were terrible. They were mushy ( oats) sporatically and the taste was blah. I really wanted to like them.
Maybe i will find a recipe with flour instead of oats. (and i like oats by the way)
Hm, I wonder what happened! I’ve had a ton of positive feedback and rave reviews about my baked oatmeal singles but I’m sorry these didn’t work out for you!
Do you think these would work if chopped rhubarb was in place of the banana?
It really needs the mushy banana for texture, I use applesauce or yogurt in place of mashed banana in some of my other baked oatmeal varieties, so chopped rhubarb wouldn’t really work as a substitute for the banana.
Hi! I am loving your recipes, I want to make these oatmeal cups for a road trip but ,I was wondering if they have to be stored in a fridge? We won’t have a cooler along so I was wondering if they would be ok stored in an airtight container for a weekend.
So I just got the 1st batch of these out of the oven and both my boys ate them warm! YUM….. I did use vanilla protein shake instead of milk–we only had red 🙁 And then after reading the comments I added the dash of cinnamon and I had some cardamon to make it even spidery and wow they taste like something I would buy at a coffee shop bakery! YUM
What is a healthier substitute for for brown sugar?
I’ve only ever made these as written, so if you want to make sweetener changes you will have to experiment! Hope it turns out great 🙂
I made these tonight but substituted 3/4 unsweetened vanilla almond milk (dropped it down to 2 points per muffin!). Delicious!
I really like the taste of outmeal. I would love to add a mix on it. I will save this for future reference.
Greetings from Australia! Came across your recipe for these baked oatmeal singles and it’s rare that I have all the ingredients, so of course I had to make them. OMG they’re delicious! Perfect breakfast with a cup of coffee.
I’m so bummed. Wanted to use up some strawberries and had all the ingredients but they came out mushy and unformed. I checked and I may have used a little too much milk. I also used silicone minimuffin pan. Would the silicone matter or was it just the milk?
I’m guessing it was just the milk, though I always use metal pans so I can’t say 100%. If you try them, I hope they work out better with less milk!
