Regardless of how you love your oatmeal, whether boiled, simmered, baked, or refrigerated overnight, it’s unbeatable when it comes to being a nutritious breakfast. To help you take your oatmeal experience a notch higher, here are some recipes worth trying:

1. Banana Nut Oatmeal Muffins

Banana nut oatmeal muffins are a great way to begin your day. As the name suggests, these muffins are better when they have nuts. That said, you can either use walnuts or any other nuts of your choice. Nevertheless, it doesn’t mean that the muffins won’t be delicious without them. Therefore, you can skip adding nuts and still make delicious banana oatmeal muffins.

You can make as many muffins as you’d want and store them in a fridge or a freezer to preserve their freshness. Nevertheless, it’d help if you do some research on how long you can store oatmeal without going bad.

  • Three cups rolled oats
  • One and a half cups low-fat milk
  • Two ripe mashed bananas
  • One-third cup brown sugar
  • One tablespoon baking powder
  • One tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • Two large eggs
  • One tablespoon vanilla extract
  • Half tablespoon salt
  • Half cup toasted chopped pecans


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and coat your muffin tin with cooking spray.

While the oven is heating, mix the milk, oats, eggs, brown sugar, baking powder, vanilla, salt, and cinnamon in a large bowl. Afterwards, add the chopped pecans. Then, pour the mixture into the muffin cups and bake until they’re done.

To determine if the muffins are ready, insert a toothpick in one muffin. If the toothpick comes out clean, the muffins are properly cooked.

You can serve these muffins warm and store the rest. Remember, when preserving these muffins in a refrigerator, you need to wrap them in an airtight wrap to prevent air from accessing them.

2. Vegan Pineapple And Coconut Baked Oatmeal

This vegan oatmeal is rich in tropical flavors coming from the pineapple and coconut. This oatmeal isn’t only a healthy and delicious breakfast, but it’s also easy to make.


  • Two cups rolled oats
  • One cup toasted unsweetened shredded coconut
  • One and a half teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • One tablespoon baking powder
  • Three-quarter teaspoon salt
  • Two cups unsweetened oat or coconut milk
  • Three quarters plain oat, cashew, or soy yogurt
  • Half cup pure maple syrup
  • Two tablespoons coconut oil
  • One tablespoon vanilla extract
  • Two cups chopped pineapple


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit, then coat an eight-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

As the oven heats, mix oats, cinnamon, coconut, baking powder, and salt in a large dish. Then, add yogurt, milk, coconut oil, maple syrup, and vanilla. Stir the mixture until all the components combine perfectly. Afterwards, fold in the pineapple and pour the mixture into the baking tin.

Bake the mixture until it turns golden brown. The cooking might last for about 50 minutes to an hour.

4. Creamy Blueberry-Pecan Oatmeal

This is among the most satisfying on-the-go oatmeal recipes. The combination results in a nutritious, crunchy, and sweet breakfast. This recipe is perfect for individuals who don’t have much time to prepare breakfast in the morning since it’s an overnight recipe.

  • A pinch of salt
  • Half cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • Half cup blueberries, either fresh, thawed, or frozen
  • Two tablespoons nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • One tablespoon toasted chopped pecans
  • Two teaspoons pure maple syrup


Add the salt to the water and allow it to boil. Add the oats, stir, and reduce the heat to medium, and allow it to cook. Stir the mixture from time to time until most of the water is absorbed. This might take up to five minutes. Remove the mixture from the heat, cover it, and allow it to sit for about three minutes. Top it with yogurt, syrup, pecans, and blueberries, and preserve it in the fridge to be served in the morning.


Oats are among the most nutritious food options there is. They can be combined with most fruits to come up with mouthwatering and healthy meals. While oats have gluten, you can find gluten-free ones, which are ideal for individuals who can’t tolerate the said substance. That said, anyone can indulge in oatmeal and benefit from its nutritional value. If you’re an oatmeal lover or trying it out for the first time, consider the above-discussed recipes and enjoy your next oatmeal.
