Chocolate Chunk Baked Oats

17th January 2021

Simple, chocolate chunk baked oats with a gooey, melted dark chocolate centre. Dairy- free.

These definitely turned out better than I expected. I thought I was eating dessert for breakfast, and I’m not complaining about it! I was almost tempted to call them baked cookie dough pots, but I thought no they’re just exceptionally tasty baked oats and I want you all to experience what I did!

This recipes gives the perfect texture to your baked oats… set on top and perfectly, creamy and gooey inside! It’s surprising just how simple these are to make:

  • Oats
  • Protein Powder
  • Mashed banana
  • Milk
  • Chocolate chips

Now can we talk about the centre. It was a last minute decision for me to add an extra chunk of dark chocolate to the centre and oh boy, I’m glad I did. It took these outs from 10/10 to an 11! If you actually fancy these for dessert you 100% have to do it. I’m actually going to make this again but with a big blob of Biscoff spread in the centre too.

I topped mine with a few banana slices too, after all it was breakfast and I thought it best to add a little fruit.

I would love to hear your feedback on this recipe and see any recreations you make so please tag me on social media and say hello!
