These rich and indulgent Nutella Baked Oats feel much naughtier than they actually are and they’re the perfect chocolatey, breakfast treat. If you prefer a drier texture to your baked oats, then we’d recommend using just one egg instead of two – they’ll be absolutely delicious either way!

Not only are our Nutella Baked Oats great for breakfast, but they’re also fantastic when served for dessert. We love ours served with some aerosol cream or even some sweetened, whipped quark.

If you want to make these Nutella Baked Oats ahead of time, then they freeze really well and can be easily defrosted and reheated, which means they’re fab for those busier mornings!

ChloeWednesday 5th January 2022

I have doubled the amount of ingredients, does this mean I need to double the cooking time too?


    SharonThursday 6th January 2022

    Hi Chloe, you will probably need to cook it a little longer but you shouldn’t have to double the cooking time. We would suggest testing it after the stated cooking time and if it’s not done, keep cooking until it is.


AmieTuesday 28th December 2021

Can I leave the eggs pit or use something as a substitute? I am intolerant of eggs. Thanks


    SharonFriday 7th January 2022

    Hi Amie, the eggs in this recipe are an important ingredient as they will make the mixture set when baked.If you’re intolerant to eggs I would suggest buying some egg replacer powder and use according to the packet instructions.You can buy it from Holland and Barrett, Ocado and Amazon. Hope this helps.


HannahThursday 15th July 2021

Hi, this may sound like a silly question but I was thinking of batch cooking these taking them to work but they don’t have a microwave can you eat them cold?


    HollyMonday 19th July 2021

    Hey Hannah, yes the baked oats are totally fine eaten cold. Hope that helps!


ShonaFriday 14th May 2021

Has anyone made these with jimjams chocolate spread?


    HollyFriday 14th May 2021

    Hey Shona, it should work fine using a different brand of chocolate spread!


JacquelineSunday 21st March 2021

Could milk be used instead of yogurt.


    HollyMonday 22nd March 2021

    Hey Jacqueline, I’m not sure how successful these baked oats would be using milk as they may be a little runny and not thicken when baked, hope that helps!


CarrenSunday 14th February 2021

I’ve made these and they were lovely and again made them into smaller bits
But the recipe has 2 points purple on ww but it’s actually 4 when you use the ww calculator in the app it’s 2points per teaspoon


    HollyMonday 15th February 2021

    Hey Carren, I have had a look at this recipe and have altered the WW points accordingly thanks so much for your message!


Rosalind HerbertTuesday 9th February 2021

I’ve doubled the recipe for the baked oats which then make 6 muffins, then I have 2 muffins each day for breakfast. For me this is the right amount for breakfast.
Really love trying different flavours in these. Thanks


    HollyWednesday 10th February 2021

    Hey Rosalind, that sounds like a great idea making the Nutella Baked Oats into individual portions for an easy grab and go breakfast!


ThomasSunday 7th February 2021

I found the natural yogurt still keeps a that sour taste I’m not to Kean on. Can you recommend anything to substitute it for or would a vanilla muller light yogurt do the trick?


    HollyMonday 8th February 2021

    Hi Thomas, we would suggest fat free natural yogurt or fat free Greek yogurt for this recipe but muller light should still work okay, just alter the calories accordingly. Hope that helps!


LouiseWednesday 3rd February 2021

I’ve just made these but not sure it’s the right consistency.

What should the consistency be like? I followed the recipe & baked for 35 minutes but its come out almost a soggy texture in the middle. Is this right?

Thank you


    HollyThursday 4th February 2021

    Hi Louise, the baked oats should be thick and have a sort of cake like consistency. You may need to bake a little longer than the suggested timings if your oven runs a little cooler and if you prefer your baked oats to be a lot firmer and dry you can use 1 egg it’s really down to personal preference. Hope that helps!


Rachel BurnsThursday 21st January 2021

Can you use steel cut oatmeal for this? I have loads left from another dish.


    LisaFriday 22nd January 2021

    Hi Rachel
    Steel cut oats have a different texture to standard porridge oats. They absorb liquid differently and take longer to cook, so I think the recipe would need to be altered to get best results from steel cut oats.


LindsayMonday 18th January 2021

What can be used instead of granulated sweetener?
Many thanks


    HollyTuesday 19th January 2021

    Hey Lindsay, you can use caster sugar instead of the sweetener, hope that helps!


Chelsea prosserMonday 18th January 2021

Do you need to use yogurt?


    HollyTuesday 19th January 2021

    Hi Chelsea, the baked oats won’t really work without yogurt as they will be too dry and may end up a little rubbery with just the egg. Hope that helps!


AmandaMonday 18th January 2021

Love your books love your recipe you are fabulous


    HollyTuesday 19th January 2021

    Hi Amanda, so glad you are enjoying our recipes! Thanks for your message


grace rowleyMonday 4th January 2021

I have made this delish nutella baked oats, but I put them in seperate cake tins to make several small ones. What would the calories be then if I made 6?
Please helppppp


    SharonMonday 4th January 2021

    Hi Grace, this recipe serves 1 and contains 540 calories. If you divided the same mixture between 6 small dishes it would mean that each small dish would contain 90 calories. Do hope this helps and we’re so glad you liked the recipe.


TanyaWednesday 16th December 2020

Would Greek style yogurt work well?


    SharonThursday 17th December 2020

    Hi Tanya, we haven’t tried this recipe using Greek style yogurt but it should work if your yogurt is a similar consistency to natural yogurt.
    It’s worth noting that Greek yogurt has had lots of the whey strained out of it to make a very thick yogurt, whereas Greek style yogurt has had alot less whey strained out and is therefore a bit thinner.
    So make sure to use Greek style yogurt to give the best chance of success. Thanks for getting in touch with your question and hope you enjoy this recipe.


LisaSaturday 5th December 2020

What kind of Oats did you use? Or can you use?
Instant, Quick cooking, 1 minute, Steel cut ???


    LisaMonday 7th December 2020

    Hi Lisa
    Any standard porridge oats work for this recipe. It may overcook if you use instant oats, although that isn’t something we have tried. Hope this helps


Kerry LambeTuesday 10th November 2020

Can I change the Nutella for lemon curd?


    SharonFriday 13th November 2020

    Hi Kerry,
    We haven’t tried this with lemon curd but it should work. Please let us know how you get on, we would be interested to hear what you think.Thanks for your question.


SallyMonday 28th September 2020

Just wanted to check that a single whole 16cm tin is 1 portion?


    HollyTuesday 29th September 2020

    Hey Sally, the Nutella Baked Oats recipe serves 1 person so all the nutritional information is correct for 1 serving. Hope that helps!


HilaryThursday 24th September 2020

This is more than 6 points on ww blue. Just the oats and the Nutella is 8!


Bobbi PeatMonday 14th September 2020

I added both teaspoons of nutella to mine and turned them into oat bars. They still taste amazing and come in handy for a quick snack or part of breakfast on the go. Absolutely gorgeous. I love them


    LisaTuesday 15th September 2020

    That sounds like a great idea, Bobbi!
    Thanks for the tip!


LouiseMonday 31st August 2020

Could you add protein powder to this?


    HollyTuesday 1st September 2020

    Hi Louise, it’s not something we have tested for the Nutella Baked Oats. You would need to alter the nutritional information accordingly and you may find you need to add more liquid as it may become quite dry. Here is a link to our guide for working out nutritional information:


Joanna OwenSunday 23rd August 2020

    HollyWednesday 26th August 2020

    LisaMonday 27th July 2020

    Hi Trisha. We use a 16cm oblong pie dish for this recipe. Hope this helps.


LeaWednesday 8th July 2020

Might sound like a stupid question but do these baked oats recipe taste like egg or is it like when you cook them in a cake?


    HollyThursday 9th July 2020

    Hey Lea, no the Nutella Baked Oats don’t taste like eggs like you said similar to a cake. Hope that helps!
