Baked Oats in Air Fryer

Making a hearty, tasty breakfast for the whole family has never been easier! Just bake oatmeal in the air fryer for a golden brown top and perfectly cooked oats throughout. 

You can do so many variations on this recipe! Serve plain or top with diced fruit, chocolate chips, or honey drizzle. You could even add a dollop of vanilla Greek yogurt for added protein and fiber. Yum!

I like to prep this oatmeal before the kiddos get up. Then it cooks while everyone is getting ready for the day. By the time we sit down for breakfast, it’s ready to be served. There’s something about a warm breakfast that just feels like home.

Plus it keeps you full all morning long. With hearty quick oats, it’s a healthy breakfast that stays with you. So important on busy weekdays.

Nothing beats homemade syrup. We love this Orange Sugar Syrup to drizzle on our oatmeal. Delicious with chocolate chips! Or really go for it with Candied Orange Peel made in the instant pot.
