Sometimes, tossing together oats for breakfast feels a bit monotonous. Not anymore—with this air fryer recipe, breakfast just got a whole lot more exciting. Happy air frying, friends!

Ingredients for Air Fryer Baked Oats

Here’s what you’ll need to whip up this nutritious breakfast:

  • Rolled oats: 1 cup (old-fashioned oats work best)
  • Banana: 1 ripe, mashed
  • Milk: 1 cup (dairy or non-dairy)
  • Egg: 1 large
  • Maple syrup: 2 tablespoons (or honey)
  • Baking powder: 1 teaspoon
  • Cinnamon: 1/2 teaspoon
  • Optional add-ins: Blueberries, chocolate chips, nuts, or dried fruits

Tips for Perfect Air Fryer Baked Oats

  • Ramekins or small baking dishes: Use oven-safe ramekins for individual servings. They fit nicely in the air fryer basket.
  • Grease lightly: Lightly grease your ramekins to prevent sticking and make cleaning easier.
  • Mix-ins and toppings: Customize your baked oats with your favorite mix-ins or toppings, such as fresh berries, a sprinkle of nuts, or a drizzle of nut butter.

Variations and Substitutions

Out of maple syrup? Substitute it with honey, agave syrup, or a sweetener of your choice.

Vegan option: Replace the egg with a flax egg (1 tablespoon ground flaxseed mixed with 3 tablespoons water) and use non-dairy milk.

Want a protein boost? Add a scoop of your favorite protein powder to the mix.
