I like eating oatmeal before I go for my weekend long runs. My favorite is plain oatmeal sweetened with a bit of maple syrup. Not very creative but it gets the job done. It does get boring after a while. I’ve tried eating cold cereal instead but it just doesn’t cut it because I often feel hungry an hour later. When I came across a recipe for baked oatmeal, I was intrigued and knew that I had to try it. Time to change things up!
I like using produce that’s in season and one of my favorites is mango. Its sweet and fruity flavor can perk up any dish that it’s added to. And what else goes really well with mango? Coconut of course! The two flavors combine to give this oatmeal a unique tropical twist. It’s a great change from boring brown sugar or plain old maple syrup. Baking the oatmeal also gives the dish a chance to soak in all of the sweetness and flavor from the mango and coconut. My favorite is the coconut oil which gives the oatmeal a rich “creamy” taste without making it heavy. Best of all, if you triple the recipe and bake up a batch on the weekend, you can make enough breakfasts for the rest of the week. They’re portable and easily re-heated. Perfect for those of you who are busy and on the go. What are you waiting for? Go and give this recipe a try. Enjoy!
What are some of your favorite oatmeal toppings?
Mango Coconut Baked Oatmeal
(Yield: 2-1/2 cup ramekins)
- 1/2 cup oats
- pinch of salt
- 1/4 cup mango, cubed
- 2 tablespoons dried unsweetened coconut flakes
- 3 tablespoons almond milk or water
- 1 tablespoon virgin coconut oil
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- Preheat your oven to 375F.
- In a small mixing bowl, add the oats, salt, mango, coconut flakes, almond milk, coconut oil and brown sugar. Mix together until well combined.
- Divide oat mixture between two 1/2-cup ramekins and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until firm.
- Set your oven to broil and bake the oatmeal for an additional 2-5 minutes to give it a nice golden crust.

Recipe notes: Spray your ramekins with cooking spray if you want to serve them on a plate. Otherwise, they’ll won’t come out. Be sure to watch your oatmeal when you set your oven to broil, they can go from golden brown to burnt very quickly. Any extra mango cubes can be used to top your oatmeal after it comes out of the oven.

Yum Yum Yum. I have some coconut milk in the fridge so might add some of that too. Great recipe!
I can never get enough coconut! I’ll try that next time 🙂
I am going to share this recipe with my wife who is a competitive swimmer and always eats oatmeal before her meets.
Awesome! Let me know how she likes it 🙂
I actually just had oatmeal today that was delicious – it had roasted bananas and strawberries and granola/almond mixture in it. So good!
I’ve never roasted bananas before. It sounds really yummy!
This looks like a perfect breakfast, thank you!
It’s very yummy! 🙂
What a delicious way to start your day! Or end it – I like oatmeal as a bedtime snack. I especially like the broiling technique at the end of the bake time. Thank you for sharing!
I never thought of eating oatmeal as a bedtime snack. I’ll have to remember that one!
found this on the top 9, it sounds awesome. Have you thought about subbing the coconut oil for coconut butter? I like it even better.
I’ve never tried coconut butter before. I will have a look for it the next time I’m at the grocery. Thanks for the suggestion!
Looks very yummy and sound healthy and of course wholesome breakfast! great start for the day
Think I’ll be having a version for my breakfast tomorrow before running. I love using porridge as a rice pudding. Chunky homemade jam as a topping. Or controversially I have used it as a risotto rather than arborio. As long as you use a really rich stock and full grains it seems to work well as a side dish.
Ah that’s interesting! I never would have thought of using it in a savory dish.
so simple! i would love to try!
Thanks! Let me know if you try it 🙂
get in my belly!!!
Mango and coconut really work well together. Congratulations on making the foodbuzz Top 9!
Am I missing it? Where do you add the mango?
Ooops! Thanks for that 🙂 The mango just goes in the bowl with the oats, coconut oil, etc. I’ve updated the post.
This would be great with coconut milk, as well 🙂
Sounds SO good — yes I agree – with coconut milk would be great!
Thank-you! Looks we were posting at the same time. I was just posting over on your blog 🙂
i need to try this!!
i love all things mango, of course!
i actually use alot of coconut milk in my rice dishes..lovely flavor!
I must go and get some coconut milk after seeing so many people posting about it 🙂
it adds such great flavor to any meal ;D
I’m picking one up sometime next week. I’m down to my last containers of almond milk (gotta love Costco LOL).
This is so yum! Will try it one of these days.
