Baked oats are a fantastic option for those with dietary restrictions as well. They can easily be substituted with other grains like quinoa or millet. For those following a vegan lifestyle, swap the milk and yogurt for plant-based alternatives. Regardless of your dietary needs, baked oats can be adapted to fit your requirements.

🍳 Equipment Needed

  • High-speed blender (like AGARO) – Although a regular blender works fine, a high-speed blender will save time and effort.
  • Oven – A good quality oven with sleek design and ample capacity for baking, grilling, and toasting.
  • Glass Baking Dish – I recommend using a borosil oval dish that is microwave and oven-safe.
  • Silicone Spatula – I recommend getting a silicone spatula that is heat resistant.
