Golden Gingerbread Baked Breakfast Oats


Golden Gingerbread Oats is a recipe I started to make earlier this week as an Overnight Protein Oats creation. It is one of my FAVOURITE recipes to make for a quick brekkie on the go before work – and transforming it into a bake was, I have to say, a pure stroke of genius. Yes, I did just call myself a genius. Ginger, cinnamon and turmeric are three of my absolute favourite spices, as anyone who follows my blog or Instagram will know! These Baked Gingerbread Protein Oats make four servings as a big tray-bake – so it’s perfect for your Sunday meal prepping, and you can freeze the slices if you need to as well! I can’t wait to see what you think of this one – let’s get baking!

NOTE: If you want to try this recipe without the protein powder I’ve used, then I recommend using half the liquid to start and adding a little more at a time until any dryness of the batter is covered!


Recipe (Makes 4 Servings)


  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 2 bananas, mashed
  • 200g Quick Cook Oats (I used Flavahan’s)
  • 4 Servings of Chocolate Protein Powder of Choice (I used Nuzest Vegan Protein)
  • 500ml of milk of choice (I used Tesco Unsweetened Almond Milk)
  • 100ml water
  • 2 small handfuls of seeds of choice e.g. Sunflower, Pumpkin
  • 1 small handful of blueberries



  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200C (fan oven). Line a baking tin with tinfoil and grease the tinfoil with a little melted coconut oil or olive oil – this stops the mix sticking!
  2. Take a large mixing bowl, and add your dry ingredients – oats, spices, half the seeds, baking powder and protein powder – and mix until combined.
  3. Add the milk, water and mashed banana next. Stir until combined.
  4. Pour the mixture into your baking tin, and smooth out with the back of a spoon until even.
  5. Sprinkle the other half of the seeds on top of the batter.
  6. Bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes. Check at 40 minutes by inserting a toothpick into the bake – if it comes out 99% clean you’re good to go!
  7. Leave to cool for 10-15 minutes until removing from the tin – then slice it up into four and you’ve got breakfast sorted for the week!
