Omg! This vegan snickers baked oatmeal is truly delicious. If you haven’t tried baking your oatmeal yet, you’re in for a real treat, let me tell ya! I don’t LOVE regular oatmeal, I mean it’s fine. It’s functional and filling but I have been seeing a lot of baked oatmeal recipes and I knew I had to try making one myself. I came up with this amazing recipe and wow, this tastes more like a dessert than oatmeal.
It’s the best texture and is so much yummier than regular oatmeal.
What ingredients will I need?
- Rolled oats – you can try instant oats but I use rolled oats
- Baking powder – any kind will do!
- Ground flax – make sure it’s ground flax not seeds
- Sea salt – adds a saltiness and works well with sweetness
- Peanut butter – creamy unsalted
- Maple syrup – pure
- Non-dairy milk – any kind you want I used macadamia nut milk
- Vanilla – pure vanilla extract
- Chocolate chips – I used vegan trader joe’s chips
- Peanuts – regular unsalted peanuts work fine
How do you make vegan snickers baked oatmeal?
First, mix the dry ingredients. Then, mix the wet ingredients. Make sure to preheat the oven to 350 F. Grease a pan or line with parchment. A 9×9 pan will work just fine! Combine the dry and wet ingredients and mix well. Add in the chocolate chips and peanuts. Pour into the pan, bake at 350 for 40 minutes. Let it cool for 5 minutes then enjoy!
This is super easy and will firm up as it sits out. Enjoy warm or room temperature later on.
What makes this vegan snickers baked oatmeal healthy?
It’s 100% plant-based, dairy-free, gluten-free, soy-free and has no added oil. If you’re strictly oil-free you can omit the chocolate or cut the amount in half. This is a great, hearty, filling breakfast as oats are packed with fiber, protein, and complex carbs that keep you full for hours.
This vegan breakfast will leave you feeling energized and ready for the day. The healthy fats in the peanut butter also help to keep you fuller longer!
Will my non-vegan friends and family enjoy this?
Yes! You’d have to be nuts not to enjoy this. It’s decadent, delicious, perfectly sweet and tastes like you’re eating dessert for breakfast. What could be bad? Even though this is plant-based, it tastes like “normal” food! Bring this to a potluck, make it for a holiday brunch, pack it in the kids lunch or serve it for breakfast for your whole family.
I promise, everyone will be drooling over this and will be so impressed.
How should you store this vegan snickers baked oatmeal?
Store in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. It’s absolutely delicious when reheated and tastes so good for days after you make it. I haven’t tried freezing it yet but if you do try it, let me know! It should freeze pretty well but I recommend having it fresh. Do not leave this out on the counter like baked goods, it needs to be in the fridge. It will spoil or get moldy if you leave it out at room temperature!
A few important tips:
- For a more gooey oatmeal leave in the oven for 35 minutes, for a more firm oatmeal leave in for 45. Want it right in the middle the way I made it? Bake for 40 minutes.
- Store in an air-tight container in the fridge.
- To heat it up, either microwave it or put it back in the oven.

DELICIOUS.. yes, I am shouting! Fresh out of the oven – is one serving half a pan? lol 👍
This looks amazing! Your recipe calls for a 9×9 pan, but the picture looks rectangular. Is the recipe correct? Looking forward to trying this….
Either kind of pan will work! Mine was just an awkward size so I recommended 9×9 because it’s more common to have it.
Can I use chia seeds instead of flax?
Definitely kid friendly. It’s so delicious.
This looks so yummy! I can’t wait to try. I don’t have any flax or chia seeds on hand. Are they necessary or can I omit?
It will probably be fine without it!
Do you have the nutrition facts for this? Looks yummy!
I don’t! Feel free to add it on my fitness pal.
This was sooooo good. My grandson and I had it for breakfast – so decadent. Will definitely be making this again. Thanks for sharing
Can you sub date syrup instead of maple syrup?
Fantastic recipe! Turned out great! I didn’t have maple syrup or peanuts so I subbed in date paste & pecans. I also added in ground chia & pumpkin seeds for an extra kick of omega’s & zinc.
Super easy to make and delicious. The best of all, a great hit with kids. These oatmeal bakes are lifesavers during busy mornings because they are easy to bake the night before and this recipe of yours came out with perfect consistency. We were able to eat it on-the-go as well. I used almond butter instead of peanut butter and pecans instead peanuts. Would to love to see some variations to this.
just wondering, when you bake it the night before, do you leave it overnight at room temperature or put in the fridge? And do you reheat the next morning or just eat as is? Thanks!
if you bake it the night before, leave it in the fridge and reheat it the next morning!
I’d love to make this but for one serving size what would be the measurements?
You can bake the whole pan then keep it in the fridge. You can reheat it whenever you want to eat it! Unlike regular oatmeal this can be reheated.
This is fantastic. It is a little sweet for me though. Would the recipe still work out if I used 1/4 cup maple syrup? If not, what can help it be less sweet?
Looks fantastic! Can this be put together the night before? Would that mess with the oats?
Just bake it and then you can reheat it whenever you want to eat it!
This recipe is delicious! After baking, I cut the pan into six servings, individually wrapped them and froze them. When I’m heading off to work, I just grab one out of the freezer and by the time I’m ready to eat it, it is thawed and delicious. They freeze beautifully and taste great even at room temperature!
can i use organic sugar instead of maple syrup? will that work?
Ty so much i love your recipes!!!
yes! Should work add more milk if it’s too dry
Wow this was so good! I did reduce the maple syrup to 1/4 cup and I think I will reduce the chocolate chips too next time because it was a bit too chocolatey for me. I also used extra crunchy peanut butter instead of adding peanuts since I didn’t have any. I used planet oat extra creamy oat milk for the non dairy milk and it was delicious! Definitely will be making again
Such an amazing & easy treat! Perfect for breakfast too, I made mine with quick oats & the texture is perfect. I will definitely bake this again with rolled oats next time!
Delicious as dessert. I’m sure I’ll enjoy it for breakfast tomorrow, too! 🙂 I found that just one bowl worked perfectly during prep which makes this recipe even better! Thank you!
I made this for my two kids and they loved it. Between my two growing boys and my dad, I think I only got have one bite. Will be making this again soon! Thank you for this great recipe!
I have made this at least a dozen times now. It’s delicious and comforting and so easy to make! 10 minutes of work then I pop it in the oven while getting ready for my day. My partner and I will then eat it for 3 days straight, sometimes with vegan Greek yoghurt or extra milk and fruit on the side. It’s also extremely versatile! I have made it with rolled oats, steel oats, millet, quinoa and I add any nut I need to use up if I don’t have peanuts – pecans, walnuts, hazelnuts. Thanks for the great recipe!
Forgot my 5 star rating!
Does this firm up? I think this would be a great cookie bar recipe.
Yes, it firms up but is best reheated! It is not the texture of a cookie, it’s baked oatmeal 🙂
It would be great if you could give the calorie count and nutritional values in your recipes.

Delicious, like dessert ❤️
