Ingredients

  • 2 cups rolled oats

  • 1 cup plain whole-milk Greek yogurt

  • ½ cup unsweetened almond milk

  • cup pure maple syrup

  • 4 large eggs

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • ¼ teaspoon almond extract

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

Pumpkin-Spice Flavor:

  • 2 tablespoons pumpkin puree

  • 2 tablespoons dried cranberries

  • 1 tablespoon chopped walnuts

  • ¼ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

Coconut-Almond Flavor:

  • 2 tablespoons sweetened flaked coconut

  • 1 tablespoon sliced almonds

  • teaspoon almond extract

Chocolate Cherry Flavor:

  • 2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 2 tablespoons dried cherries

  • 1 tablespoon semisweet chocolate chips

Blueberry-Lemon Flavor:

  • 3 tablespoons fresh blueberries

  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup

  • ½ teaspoon lemon zest

Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Flavor:

  • 2 tablespoons raisins

  • 1 tablespoon chopped walnuts

  • teaspoon ground cinnamon, or as needed

  • pinch of ground cloves

  • pinch of ground allspice

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 5 8-oz ramekins.

  2. Combine rolled oats, Greek yogurt, almond milk, maple syrup, eggs, vanilla extract, almond extract, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a blender. Blend on high speed until batter is smooth, 1 to 2 minutes.

  3. To one ramekin, add pumpkin puree, cranberries, walnuts, and pumpkin pie spice. To the second ramekin, add sweetened coconut, sliced almonds, and almond extract. To the third ramekin, add cocoa powder, cherries, and chocolate chips. To the fourth ramekin, add blueberries, maple syrup, and lemon zest. To the fifth ramekin, add raisins, walnuts, cinnamon, cloves, and allspice.

  4. Divide batter evenly between the prepared ramekins. Carefully stir each ramekin individually until all additional ingredients are thoroughly incorporated. Place ramekins onto a baking sheet.

  5. Bake until tops spring back lightly when touched, 30 to 35 minutes. Allow to cool 10 minutes before serving. Alternately, cool completely, cover, and place into the refrigerator or freezer for later. Re-warm before serving.

Cook's Notes:

These blended oats are infinitely customizable. Use any yogurt or milk you prefer; swap maple syrup for honey or brown sugar; add in or leave out spices and extracts as desired. As written, these oats will be lightly sweetened, but feel free to add additional sweetener (up to 1/2 cup) to taste. The amounts listed for each of the 'add-ins' are only suggestions as well; add as much or as little of the spices, nuts, dried or fresh or frozen fruits, etc that you wish. Additional fruits, nuts, berries, etc can also be sprinkled on top of the batter in each ramekin before baking.

I enjoy a lot of variety, so I make each ramekin a different flavor. Making the individual flavors is not required-- you can make them all one flavor, if desired. Just know that the recipe makes enough for 5 8-ounce ramekins, no matter what additions you make.
