You only need a few basic ingredients, a blender, and some ramekins or a muffin tin to try out this tasty treat. Read on to learn more about TikTok baked oats, their health benefits, and how to make them at home.

What are baked oats, and why are they so popular?

When you think of oats for breakfast, you probably imagine oatmeal, granola, or something of the like. But this dish could not be further from it. Baked oats are fluffy and cake-like, more similar to an oat-based muffin than mushy oatmeal. This texture is thanks to the blender, which delivers a super smooth and airy batter that is endlessly versatile.

With just a cursory glance at TikTok, you’ll see tons of different takes on this basic recipe, with some home cooks adding chocolate or fruit, and others creating varieties like strawberry cheesecake and birthday cake. Plus, this breakfast is a super filling dish with lots of fiber and not a lot of sugar. What’s not to love?

Health benefits of baked oats

Despite having the texture and flavor of cake, baked oats are pretty healthy. Nutritionally, they’re similar to standard oats, which are naturally gluten-free whole grain. Oats are an excellent source of soluble fiber and carbohydrates, both of which make you feel fuller and more energized, two great characteristics of any breakfast.

Baked oats also make a great addition to your skincare routine, keeping your skin as smooth as a baby. Oats have anti-inflammatory properties, which can reduce wrinkles and other visible signs of aging. This is why oatmeal is such a popular ingredient in a lot of skincare products, as it can have as much of a positive impact when eaten as when applied directly to your skin.
