Baked oats are the latest breakfast craze at the moment and we know exactly why; they are delicious, cheap and super healthy.
Made primarily with oats and yoghurt, they are a great way to start the day and you can customise them however you wish.
They are ideal if you’ve got a sweet tooth or trying to eat healthier as they are low in calories in fat.
Instagram baker @cakeontherun has already shared her recipes for strawberry and cream,apple crumble and chocolate orange baked oats with us.
Now she has created a cinnamon roll recipe and unlike her other scrumptious oatmeal bakes, this one takes just five minutes to cook.
Made with just a handful of store cupboard ingredients, it’s so straightforward anyone can make it.
Once cooked, it can be enjoyed in bite-size pieces with yoghurt and maple syrup drizzled on top, as one big bake straight from the oven or broken up in a cereal bowl with milk poured over if you bake them a little longer to go crunchy.
They can be made gluten-free if using gluten-free oats and vegan friendly when using a dairy-free yoghurt such as soya.

Cinnamon roll baked oats recipe (serves 1):
- 50g oats
- 40g low-fat vanilla yoghurt (plus extra for serving)
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1 tbsp sweetener (or sugar or maple syrup)
- 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
- Plus flour for dusting the surface
- Pre-heat the oven to 180C/ 350F/ gas mark 4.
- Blend the oats to a powder.
- Put the blended oats, yoghurt and baking powder into a bowl and mix.
- Dust a surface and roll out the sticky mixture with your hands. It will be very sticky but the flour will reduce the stickiness and help you shape it into a flat sausage shape.
- Sprinkle over the sweetener and cinnamon, roll up and slice into four to five pieces.
- Oven bake for five minutes.
- Serve straight away with extra yoghurt and a drizzle of maple syrup (optional).
If you don’t want to get your hands sticky and would rather cook the dough as one big ball, feel free.
Fill it with the cinnamon sugar, pop it in the oven and slice it once it’s baked instead.
