Quick Air Fryer Baked Oatmeal with collagen for extra protein ready in 10 minutes! Made with instant oats and sugar free, this air fryer oatmeal bake is a healthy single serve breakfast with a Vegan option too.

It’s been a while since I’ve made an air fryer recipe – and also an oatmeal recipe – so I thought I’d just kill 2 birds with one stone here!

But you know I’m all about the high protein recipes here, so I added that ‘feature’ to these oats as well!

A scoop of collagen in the mixture for air fryer protein oats with some extra health benefits too – improved hair and nail strength because I for one especially need that first part!

Can I cook porridge in an air fryer

Yes; I was a bit skeptical about it, but making oats or porridge in an air fryer is very much possible, and it turns out just as creamy as the regular baked oats.

This is also a lot quicker since you don’t have the preheat an oven.

Ingredients for Air fryer Baked Oatmeal with Protein

This air fryer protein oats is great for a healthy and easy breakfast because it needs only a few pantry staples; Perfect for a single serve recipe too.

  • Instant or Quick Oats; Gluten free if needed. See tips for using rolled oats
  • Unflavored Collagen or unflavored protein powder for air fryer protein oats. I use the one from Vital Proteins.
  • Alternatively use almond flour or oat flour.
  • Baking Powder
  • A pinch of Cinnamon
  • Stevia Sweetener: This keeps the air fryer oatmeal sugar free and low calorie. Zero calorie Erythritol or a Monk Fruit sweetener (code HAYLSKITCHEN gets you a discount) are good alternatives
  • Unsweetened Almond Milk: To keep the baked oatmeal dairy free and sugar free, but use regular milk if you wish.
  • Non Fat Greek Yogurt for even more high protein oatmeal
  • Vanilla Extract: For a subtle flavor that complements the chocolate

How to cook Oatmeal in Air Fryer

This air fryer oatmeal recipe is super easy to make: it’s just a combine and bake!

  • Combine the dry ingredients (oats, collagen powder, stevia sweetener and baking powder) in a food processor.
  • Process until fine – about 30 seconds.
  • Bowl 2 (medium): Whisk all the wet ingredients – milk, pumpkin puree or mashed banana, egg white and vanilla
  • Add dry mix to wet and stir until the mix is uniform.
  • Grease a ramekin or oven-safe dish with coconut oil or cooking spray. You want one that’s about 1 cups or 8 ounces in volume.
  • Pour mixture into the ramekin.
  • Cook in air fryer for 10 minutes at 350°F
  • The top of the oats will look wet, but they’re cooked. You’ll have something like creamy oats top, but completely baked oats all around. Don’t over bake it or the bottom and sides will completely dry out.

Cool a bit, add some sugar-free chocolate chips or chocolate syrup (HAYLSKITCHEN for a discount), fruit or nuts and dig in!
