Dark Chocolate Baked Oatmeal

I've been having a baked oatmeal craze lately. It never used to appeal to me until out of the blue, I decided to give it a try.... and the rest is history!

Oatmeal is a crazy thing. It's so healthy, but so delicious. That is, if you make it the right way; and this, my friends, is the right way. Brownie-like on the outside, fudgey in the middle, it doesn't get better than this. 

Remember my chocolate pudding oatmeal? If you tried it, then you know it's delicious. Well this is the baked version, which is also delish.

So go ahead, give it a whirl. You won't be disappointed.

Dark Chocolate Baked Oatmeal
1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1/4 tsp. Baking powder
1 1/2 tbsp. Cocoa powder
1 small ripe banana, mashed
1/3 cup almond milk, or milk of choice

1) Preheat oven to 350° Fahrenheit. And grease a single- serving ramkin.
2) Combine first three ingredients.
3) Stir in first the banana, then the milk.
4) Bake until no longer liquidy in the center, or about 25-30 minutes.



  1. Oh, wow, this sounds INCREDIBLE. Yum! Like some healthy turned into some decadent.

    1. Thanks, Joyti! Yes, it's pretty unbelievable how healthy it is!

  2. love a good oatmeal.. never tried chocolate before, thanks for the idea!

    1. Just a warning, once you try chocolate in your oatmeal, you'll never go back! At least if you're anything like me!
