Savory Baked Oatmeal (BLW Friendly)

  • Author: Laura Ligos, MBA, RD, CSSD


Oats are such a versatile ingredient and I love using them for things like Overnight Oats and Baked Oatmeal so this time around instead of trying something sweet I decided to try my hand at adding veggies to a Savory Baked Oatmeal recipe. Enjoy!



2 cups rolled oats

11/2 teaspoon baking powder 

1 egg, whisked

2 cups milk 

1 Tablespoon olive oil 

1 small sweet potato peeled & diced

1/2 bell pepper, diced

1/2 red onion, diced

1 cup mushrooms, diced

2 cups baby spinach, chopped

1 Tablespoon tomato paste

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon paprika

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

salt, as desired


Preheat oven to 350°F and line a 8” baking dish with parchment paper

In a large bowl mix oats, baking powder, egg & milk and set aside. 

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add sweet potato, peppers, onion & mushroom and cook until soft, stirring frequently, around 8 minutes.

Add in spinach and cook until wilted, about 2 minutes.

Add in tomato paste & spices and stir to combine.

Remove vegetable mixture from heat and add to oat mixture until evenly combined.

Pour into prepared baking dish and place in oven for 30-35 minutes or until baked through. 

Allow to cool then store in refrigerator for up to 1 week.
