These vegan blended baked oats will make you feel like you're eating dessert for breakfast. Based on the viral TikTok recipe for blended oats, this version is veganised and higher-protein than the original.
All it takes is a few simple ingredients, a blender, and a little bit of time.
TikTok Blended Baked Oats
This recipe was inspired by one of many viral TikTok recipes. But while there are plenty of copy cats, it's a little bit harder to find recipes or videos about vegan blended baked oats.
These oats are fine with or without egg, but to make to make the most-accurate copycat version, there are a few ways of replacing the egg that yield just wonderful results.
What to Use Instead of Egg
While you can leave the egg out altogether, there are a few ways you can swap the egg in this recipe for a vegan-friendly alternative:
- Egg replacer: This is what I used. You can easily find this online or at the grocery store. Simply mix 1 teaspoon of powder with 2 tablespoon of water and you have an easy egg replacement.
- Flax egg: A classic swap for vegan baking. Mix 1 tablespoon flax meal with 3 tablespoon of water and let sit for 15 minutes before adding to recipe.
- Chia egg: Same concept as a flax egg. Mix 1 tablespoon chia seed with 2.5 tablespoon of water and let sit for 5 minutes before adding to recipe.
Other Ingredients in Vegan Blended Baked Oats
- Banana: Adds sweetness and works as a binder.
- Oats: The base of the recipe, use rolled or quick oats (not steel cut).
- Maple syrup: Feel free to swap with any sweetener you prefer. Honey, agave, brown sugar, and stevia would all work.
- Soy milk: Use any plant-based milk you prefer.
- Powdered peanut butter: I used PB2 to keep the protein high and the flavour nice. Feel free to use any other vegan protein powder if you prefer. You can also use regular peanut butter instead, but cut it back to 1 Tbsp, and keep in mind that the nutrition facts will be slightly different.
- Baking powder: Helps the blended oats rise like a mini cake.
- Cinnamon: Adds spice and flavour.
- Sea salt: Adds a bit of savoury-ness to balance out the flavours.
- Vegan chocolate chips: Any vegan chocolate chips will do. I used Noshu choc baking chips. You can also swap these with raisins, nuts or dried fruit... but I recommend chocolate.
What Blender Should I Use?
You're only blending a small amount here, so whatever you have should work fine. I used a NutriBullet, but you can use any blender or food processor.
You can also make this un-blended, but you'll have to mash the banana with a fork and mix everything well. It will have more of an oaty texture (obviously), but it will still taste great.Print
