Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal with a vanilla glaze stacked on top of each other

Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal is by far the best oatmeal recipe you will ever make. The flavor combination from the chewy oats, cinnamon, brown sugar, vanilla, and almond butter take traditional oatmeal to the next level. This recipe is simple and quick and can be made on any busy morning. My kids love waking up to the smell of baked cinnamon roll oatmeal in the mornings, and I love that they are getting a hearty and healthy breakfast before they head out to school. We also love overnight oats and Easy Razzleberry Crescent Rolls.

Ingredients for Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal

  • Rolled Oats: Also called old fashioned oats are flat and flakey and absorb more water and cook faster than some of your other oats.
  • Quick Oats: I like to add in quick oats to keep the oatmeal bars from becoming to dense when baked.
  • Brown Sugar: I like to add brown sugar in this recipe because of it’s molasses content and the flavor that it adds to the oatmeal.
  • Cinnamon: Is a key ingredient in the flavor of cinnamon rolls. I personally love the extra cinnamon flavor.
  • Baking Powder: Baking Powder contains baking soda and cream of tartar and is used as a leavening agent when baking.
  • Eggs: Add structure, leavening and color when baking.
  • Milk: I used 1% milk in this recipe, but you can use any milk that your prefer.
  • Vanilla: I prefer to use pure vanilla when I am baking.
  • Almond Butter: Almond butter is slightly healthier than peanut butter because it has more vitamins, minerals, and fiber. You can use any nut butter you have on hand.
  • GLAZE INGREDIENTS
  • Unsalted Butter: Has no added salt which allows you to control the salt content when baking.
  • Vanilla: I prefer to use pure vanilla when I am baking.
  • Milk: I used 1% milk in this recipe, but you can use any milk that you prefer.
  • Powdered Sugar: Powdered sugar works best when you are making a dessert glaze.

How to make Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal

  • Start by preheating oven to 350F and lining a 8X8 baking dish with parchment paper.
  • In a medium size mixing bowl add old fashioned oats, instant oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, and baking powder, stir to mix ingredients well.
  • In a small mixing bowl whisk together eggs, milk, vanilla, and almond butter.
  • Pour wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until fully combined.
  • Pour the cinnamon roll mixture into the prepared baking dish and bake in a preheated oven for 35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted.
  • Prepare the glaze while oatmeal is baking.
  • In a small mixing bowl combine melted butter, vanilla, milk, and powdered sugar and whisk to combine ingredients.
  • Once oatmeal has been removed from the oven, allow to cool for 5 minutes.
  • Once it has had time to slightly cool, drizzle glaze over top of the baked oatmeal and serve warm. Enjoy!

Baked Oatmeal Tips

These breakfast bars are so easy to make and taste delicious. Here are a few tips to make the baking process even easier as you bake them.

  • Only pour the vanilla glaze on fully cooked oatmeal bars. If you pour the glaze on uncooked baked oatmeal it will sink into the batter.
  • If you want to add more protein to these breakfast bars, try adding in a scoop of vanilla protein powder with an extra Tbsp. milk.
  • To make this recipe gluten free, add gluten free oats.

Tips for storing and reheating

Leftover baked cinnamon oatmeal should be placed in an airtight container and stored in the fridge for up to 4-5 days. When reheating oatmeal bars, pop them in the microwave for 30 seconds or until they are warm through out.
