Description

This chocolate baked oatmeal with peanut butter feels decadent, but it’s loaded with healthy ingredients and so easy to whip up!


Ingredients

  • 2 cups rolled oats*
  • 2 cups milk (I use unsweetened almond milk)
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup, plus more for serving
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Scant 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 Tablespoon ground flaxseed*
  • 1 ripe banana, mashed (about ½ cup)
  • 1 Tablespoon melted coconut oil
  • 2 Tablespoons peanut butter + more for drizzling
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup chopped chocolate or chocolate chips*
  • cooking spray

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. Spray an 8×8 square baking dish with cooking spray.
  3. In a large bowl, mix together the oats, almond milk, cocoa powder, maple syrup, baking powder, sea salt, flaxseed, mashed banana, coconut oil, peanut butter and vanilla. Stir together, then add 1/8 cup of the chopped chocolate. 
  4. Carefully pour oatmeal mixture into the prepared baking dish.
  5. Scatter remaining chocolate on top.
  6. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the oatmeal has set. Remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes. Portion and serve with a drizzle of peanut butter on top.
  7. For storage: store in the refrigerator in an airtight container for 4-6 days.
  8. To reheat: To reheat the whole baked oatmeal, cover with foil and reheat in a 350°F oven for about 20 minutes. For individual portions, set toaster oven to 350°F and bake for 5-10 minutes or reheat in the microwave for 1 minute.
