  • ½ cup old-fashion rolled oatsgluten-free if needed
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ large over-ripe bananamore brown spots = sweeter
  • 3 tbsp almond milk or oat milkI love vanilla unsweetened almond milk

  • Preheat your Air Fryer  to 290°F and grease a single-serve ramekin or baking dish.
  • Pour the batter into a greased ramekin (I used an 8-ounce one). Top with the extra chocolate chips or your desired mix-in.
  • Air fry at 290°F for 12 – 15 min total. Check at the 7-minute mark since all air fryers are different. If it is browning too quickly on top, feel free to add a piece of aluminum foil on top.
  • The oats should be cooked through and slightly browned on top – enjoy!


Rolled Oats: you can use quick oats, but do not use steel-cut oats.

Oat or Almond Milk: You can use skim, soy, rice, 2%, whole, or cashew milk.

Storing: For best results, store meal-prepped air fryer baked oats in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.

Reheating: Reheat in the air fryer at 350°F for 5 – 8 minutes, in the oven at 350°F for 5 – 8 minutes, or in the microwave for 1 – 2 minutes.
