It’s time to make up for some lost time and level up your protein oatmeal! This Easy High Protein Baked Oatmeal recipe is absolutely delicious, packed with healthy fats, has complex carbs, and takes no time at all to make.

Did I also mention that since we’re making up for lost time we’re going to pair this high protein breakfast with some high protein coffee!?

This baked oatmeal recipe is guaranteed to step your protein oatmeal game up! All you need to make it? A good blender or food processor.

Add into whatever you’re using 1/2 cup of rolled oats, 1 banana, 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 2 tablespoons of a nut butter, 1/2 container of Greek yogurt, 2 ounces of unsweetened milk substitute, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder, and 1 scoop of protein powder.

Switch up the flavors here and you’ll have endless variations! Banana Greek yogurt with chocolate protein powder, pumpkin Greek yogurt with vanilla protein powder…you get the idea. Let me know some of your favorite combos in the comments below!

Blend or process everything together until smooth. This should take less than a minute.

High Protein Baked Oatmeal

While those ingredients are mixing, take out a an oven safe dish. You could make multiple servings in smaller dishes or just use one dish for the entire recipe.

Pour your mix in and optionally top it. Sugar free chocolate chips, pieces of a protein bar, nuts, fruit, or anything else you want.

Put your easy high protein baked oatmeal into the oven on 350F/176C for around 20-30 minutes depending on how big your dish is.

So there is your protein packed oatmeal that you can easily switch up and yes, it’s absolutely delicious!

Now every good meal needs a drink so how about some coffee? Not just any coffee, flavored protein coffee!

Protein Bar Coffee

All you need for this is 3 things. Your coffee, something to put your coffee in, and your choice complimenting flavor protein bar.

Now that you have your choice protein bar (I went with salted caramel) break off a piece it and put it into the bottom of your coffee cup. Bring that cup over to your liquid energy machine and prepare your coffee.

As you pour your hot coffee into your cup, the protein bar will melt giving your coffee some added protein and of course…flavor! You might need to mix it up a bit but it should melt pretty quick.

Another alternative is to use your protein bar and just mix it around in your coffee while it’s hot.

If you like coffee, don’t sleep on trying this protein coffee! It’s seriously an awesome way to give it some extra flavor.

Speaking of coffee, what’s your favorite way to drink it?

    Why milk substitute? Can I just use regular 3,2% or 2,0% milk?

    • Derek Howes on August 28, 2023 at 9:06 am

      Calories/macros will change some but can absolutely use regular milk.

It tested very delicious 😋, nutritious, aromatic, mouthwatering, pleasant, and heavenly 😇. I enjoyed it very much 😀. You’re a captivating and sensational chef ☺️. I send warm greetings for a blessed day 🤗.

      Hi Ana! I’m doing good, thanks for asking. I’m so glad you liked this recipe!!! Do you have a favorite yet?

  3. Alice on March 23, 2023 at 10:18 am

    Half a container or yogurt is not a measurement! Halfway through making this recipe and aim at a standstill because I don’t know how much yogurt to use

    • Derek Howes on March 23, 2023 at 11:17 am

      Hi Alice! On all of our recipes we have metric conversions which will show you the weight of each ingredient. You can find this by clicking “Metric” at the top of the ingredient list. Hope this helps!

    Just made this for my husband and I. We love it! It’s like a chocolate chip banana bread when it’s all baked. We put it in the air fryer on bake setting for 8 minutes. Perfection, thanks for sharing

  5. Kay on July 2, 2022 at 3:07 pm

    Question: I used plain low fat greek yoghurt and I am afraid that makes the result a little sour tasting, is that correct?

    Love the simplicity of the recipe btw! Love your channel!

    • Derek Howes on August 23, 2022 at 11:30 am

      It could (brand dependent). Did you also use unflavored protein powder? I’d add a little vanilla extract in or try using a flavor next time! Thank you Kay!

  6. Brian on May 20, 2022 at 10:55 pm

    I’ll be making this soon as it looks great!

  7. Jake Hertz on May 16, 2022 at 12:32 pm

    If I’m using PB2 (powdered peanut butter), how much do I use in this recipe? Is it 1:1?

    I’d love to see you start doing some recipes with PB2 or other powdered peanut butters!

    • Derek Howes on August 23, 2022 at 11:46 am

      I’ve not tried it myself but I think you’d be fine with a 1:1 substitute!

    Can I substitute PB for something else to make it lower in calories ?

    • Derek Howes on February 23, 2022 at 8:28 am

      Absolutely, a powdered peanut butter should work great for this.

  9. Kim on December 8, 2021 at 2:47 pm

    For the yogurt, is it for ½ of a 75g container or ½ of a container, which should be about 75g? Thanks! Can’t wait to try this!

    • Derek Howes on February 24, 2022 at 7:14 pm

      Hi Kim! This would be 75g total (1/2 of a standard 150g container). Hope this helps!

  10. Khushi Bulchandani on June 26, 2021 at 11:35 am

    Lovely recipes! It’s good to know a protein and sugar free world out there.

    Only I had a question do u have recipes with just protein and carbs no fat…as currently I am on a low cal diet. And not mixing carbs and fat.

    Thank you

    • Derek Howes on February 27, 2022 at 8:34 am

      Thank you Khushi. We do offer fat free substitutes to most of our recipes which may help you achieve this!

    This recipe is amazing! I didn’t have the chocolate chips but it’s still amazing! I’ve tried other protein recipes before from other sites that have just not been very good. So glad I found you, the cheesecakes and baked apple pie recipes look amazing, trying those next! Thank you!!

    • Derek Howes on May 18, 2021 at 5:06 pm

      Thanks Matt! It’s definitely one of my favorites lately. Let me know how you like the other recipes too.

  13. Jane on May 6, 2021 at 11:36 am

    Do you think this would also work well with other types of fruit, such as blueberries or cherries?

    • Derek Howes on May 7, 2021 at 1:14 pm

      Absolutely! I plan to film a couple more variations of this in the future.

    • BAKED OATMEAL LOVER on March 3, 2023 at 11:51 am

      The second time I made this I put blueberries along the bottom of my dish, add half of my batter, then add almonds. Then the rest of my Batter and topped with a few chocolate chips.

      Delicious and love that I get a fruit and crunchy in there along with a little sweet treat on the top.
      The third time I made it I added my Thrive 6 mushroom mixture, ground ginger. Ground chia seeds and it didn’t change the taste of my baked oatmeal. It was still super yummy. I am happy to be able to hid some things in my oatmeal lol
