There’s no secret how much we love baked oatmeal. It’s my secret weapon when it comes to meal prep! This blueberry baked oatmeal has been a favorite on the site for years, with this Chocolate Peanut Butter Baked Oatmeal coming in at a close second.
You all clearly love delicious breakfasts that require minimal effort and ingredients – so today I’m bringing you another delicious baked oatmeal recipe.. this time.. with mango and pineapple!
This mango pineapple oatmeal is basically like a tropical vacation…in breakfast form!
It’s loaded with fresh, sweet chunks of mango and pineapple. SO delicious and easy to make! If you’ve never tried baked oatmeal.. you’re going to love it. Here’s why it’s one of our favorite things to make:
Why we love baked oatmeal:
- Cook once, eat all week long! –Rather than dirtying a pot every morning for breakfast.. there’s only one dish (two if you count the bowl you mixed it in!)
- Portable – Can be eaten on the go or on a dish! Baked oatmeal is a little tough to eat with your hands because it is a bit soft, but it can be done!
- Tastes great cold or warm – I prefer it warm but it’s totally yummy right out of the fridge.
- Has only 11 ingredients – nothin’ fancy – all pantry staples you probably already have!
- Takes under an hour to make!

To make this baked oatmeal you’ll need:

There are over 10 substitutions listed in the green box below to help you depending on what you have on hand in your kitchen!
How to make Mango Pineapple Baked Oatmeal:
Making baked oatmeal is ridiculously easy.
- Mix all your ingredients together until they are combined.
- Pour in a greased 8×8 baking dish.
- Bake, slice + eat! That’s it!
Baked Oatmeal Substitutions:
This baked oatmeal can be tweaked for whatever diet/ingredients you have on hand! Here are some substitutions we recommend:
Steel Cut Oats: You can use steel cut oatmeal in this recipe. Use 1 cup of steel cut oats and 2 cups of liquid/milk. We have a Baked Steel Cut Oatmeal recipe that you can also follow!
Quick Cook Oats: I have not tried this with quick cook oats and wouldn’t recommend it. I don’t think that it will hold up/cook correctly with the smaller oats.
Coconut: Feel free to skip the coconut in this dish
Milk: You can use any type of milk in this recipe. Regular dairy/non dairy will work!
Fruit substitutions: Baked oatmeal is pretty flexible and you can make a lot of substitutions to it. You can sub in any type of fruit or berry in this recipe. I’d check out this Chocolate Peanut Butter Baked Oatmeal if you’re looking for something a little more decadent!
Frozen fruit: I haven’t tried this with frozen fruit – but I think it would work. I would thaw the mango/pineapple completely and allow excess liquid to drain off before adding them to the batter.
Gluten Free: make sure you’re using gluten free certified rolled oats.
Optional add ins: chopped nuts, more chocolate, shredded coconut, fresh fruit
Baked Oatmeal Cups: I haven’t tried baking these in muffin cups but I think it would work! The only thing I would say is it will be harder to clean up and it might stick to a muffin tin. I would grease the muffin tins or use silicone baking liners. You can bake for a little less time.
How long can you keep baked oatmeal for?
You can keep baked oatmeal stored in the refrigerator for up to a week. If you don’t plan to eat it before then, I would slice it, wrap it into individual pieces and place them in the freezer.
Then you can just quickly defrost when needed!
Serving & Storing Baked Oatmeal:
Serving: This baked oatmeal is great to eat on its own, but you could also serve it with maple syrup/greek yogurt on top! I like to pair it with a slice of Sausage Egg Bake for a balanced breakfast of protein, carbs, and fat.
Storing: I would not store this baked oatmeal at room temp. It likely will get moldy or stale if you don’t refrigerate it.
This baked oatmeal will last in the refrigerator for up to a week.
Freezing: Bake, slice and freeze your oatmeal. You can individually wrap it to make it easier, or allow slices to freeze and then put them in a ziploc bag or container so they don’t stick together. Baked oatmeal will last about 3 months in the freezer.
