This has been my new favorite go-to breakfast because this Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal Bake tastes just like cinnamon rolls and it’s healthy! It’s also easy to make and convenient for an on-the-go breakfast. This Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal Bake is make with rolled oats, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and lots and lots of cinnamon.

I topped this Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal with a simple and easy glaze made with powdered sugar and milk. The glaze is totally optional but I think it makes this oatmeal taste like a cinnamon roll even more. This oatmeal can also be enjoyed as a dessert because it’s sweet and satisfies any sweet tooth.

HOW TO MAKE A CINNAMON ROLL OATMEAL BAKE

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and spray a 9 x 13 inch baking pan with nonstick spray.
  • In a large bowl whisk together the eggs, milk, melted butter, maple syrup, brown sugar and vanilla extract until combined. Stir in the oats, baking powder and cinnamon until all of the ingredients are combined.
  • Let the oatmeal batter sit for 10 minutes to absorb all of the ingredients. Spread the oatmeal batter evenly into the greased baking pan and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the top looks golden brown.
  • While the oatmeal is baking you can make the icing. Simply whisk together the powdered sugar and milk in a small bowl until icing has formed. If the icing seems too thick, add more milk. If it’s too thin, add more powdered sugar.
  • Once the oatmeal is baked let cool for 10 minutes and slice into squares. Drizzle with icing and serve immediately. It is best when served warm and fresh, enjoy!

TIPS FOR MAKING CINNAMON ROLL OATMEAL

  • If you want to make this extra healthy, add melted coconut oil instead of butter, leave out the brown sugar, and icing on top. The oatmeal will be slightly sweet from the maple syrup and it will still be delicious
  • This oatmeal bake makes the best leftovers and can be eaten throughout the week for breakfast. Simply microwave for 15-30 seconds depending on your microwave. Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4-5 days.
  • Drizzle as much or as little icing as you prefer on your oatmeal. I like to serve the icing on the side so you can control how much you want on each serving
  • Chocolate chips or mixed nuts make great additions to this recipe. Add to the oatmeal batter or sprinkle on top

        Hi Bek, that’s strange and I’m sorry your oatmeal didn’t come out the way they should have. I’m wondering if you baked the oatmeal long enough or maybe your oven temperature was off?

    My family loves baked oatmeal, but I always make it plain. This time we tried your amazing cinnamon roll oatmeal and they asked me not to go back to the plain one. Delicious!

    This is the perfect breakfast! Easy, delicious and healthy!! It’s winning out over our usual pancakes!

  4. 5 stars
    This is such a great breakfast! It tastes amazing and the whole family loved it, I don’t think I’ll get away with making regular oatmeal for some time to come!!

  5. 5 stars
    This bake certainly looks incredible. Inviting and just the way I like mine to be. Perfect way to start a new day!

  6. This looks delicious. It sounds like a fun item to bring to a school breakfast. We have those for teachers every so often so I will test this cinnamon roll oatmeal bake out for then:)

    I made these for a road trip when we had a lot of early mornings and they were the perfect healthy breakfast to go solution.

    1. Hi Megan, I’ve never used ground oats for this recipe but you may have to add more oats if they are ground so the consistency of the oatmeal isn’t too thin. I would see how the oatmeal batter turns out before adding more than the recipe calls for. If it seems watery, add 1/4 cup more of ground oats. I hope this helps! Enjoy!

    I really liked this! My only comment would be to whisk the egg and melted first, then add the milk, etc. I first added the egg, milk and butter all at once as I instructed and my melted butter got flaky from the cold and nothing would mix together so I had to dump that batch out and wasted a lot of ingredients. Otherwise this breakfast was really nice and easy to make!

      Hi Morgan, thanks for your feedback on this Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal Bake recipe. I will have to try your method the next time I make this oatmeal. So glad you found it easy to make. Thank you for trying my recipe! 🙂

      Hi Ashley, I’ve never tried this oatmeal in a muffin tin but I’m sure it would totally work! I would use a standard cupcake/muffin pan size. Be sure to reduce the baking time a few minutes and generously grease the pan before adding the oatmeal batter. I hope you love this recipe!

    Delicious! Easy and quick- one of our family’s all time favorite for breakfast. We have a lot of allergies and a type 1 diabetic so I make it dairy/egg/gluten free: swap the eggs out for 1/2 cup applesauce, decrease to 1 tablespoon real maple syrup (to lessen amount of carbs per slice), and use almond milk. I usually do a heaping tablespoon of cinnamon and add in 1-2 scoops of chocolate Orgain protein powder (usually have to increase the almond milk to thin out the batter). Bakes up nicely by 27 min in oven. I also use almond milk in the icing with a tsp of vanilla. Thank you for this recipe- it perfect to adjust/add/make as-is!

    Hi Elizabeth! Thanks so much for your comment and review. I’m so glad that you loved this Cinnamon Roll Bake and I love all of your adjustments. I love the idea of adding protein powder to the oatmeal, I’ll be trying that next time!

  11. Mine did that too once. I let it sit a little longer before baking and letting sit for that full 10 minutes seemed to help. I also doubled the recipe, baked a little longer so they were thicker pieces. My family LOVES this recipe and I do too! Fun to mix up what’s on top of it. Thanks for this recipe! I’ve been seeking out a good one ever since my daughter had some at an amazing cafe we go to.

    My family loves this recipe. We have made it several times and it has turned out great each time! The simple icing makes this dish a kid favorite and a healthier breakfast item.

    These were SO delicious! My whole family loved it even though I don’t think it came out right and I can’t figure out why. We always make Amish baked oatmeal and it’s fluffy like a cake. This recipe didn’t expand at all for me.. I used old fashioned oats and didn’t skip any ingredients. Definitely 2 Teaspoons of baking powder, I double checked. It was so flat there wasn’t a way to cut it up and serve so we just ate it with a spoon off the pan. How can I make it rise next time? Not sure why that happened. Thanks!

      Hi Rachel, oh no! I’m sorry the oatmeal didn’t turn out how it was supposed to. I’m thinking it didn’t cook long enough especially if you had to eat it with a spoon. You should be able to cut it with a knife. I would cook it for a little longer next time until the center is set.

  14. Can I make a batch tonight but bake it in the morning??? Letting it “soak” all night? Have you tried this and does it work?? Thank you!! Can’t wait to make this.

    Delicious!!!! My sister and I are looking forward to enjoying this recipe for breakfast. I appreciate you sharing this. 🙂

    I think someone messed with the recipe. It’s way too dry with the current amount of wet to dry ingredients. I doubled the milk and butter only and it turned out better.
