Gooey Baked Cacao Oatmeal

By Friday, February 28, 2014 , , , ,

After a request for more baked oatmeal recipes I decided I needed to come up with a baked chocolate oatmeal recipe. This is like eating a single serve chocolate brownie for breakfast. It is rich and gooey and decadent but it is packed with the goodness of oats, cacao and banana and it keeps you going for hours!

I especially think it tastes good with raspberries, because raspberries and chocolate are an amazing combination! In summer when fruit is in season I definitely want to give this a go with fresh strawberries too.
You will need:

1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup almond milk
1 ripe banana
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1-2 tbsps cacao powder

Firstly preheat your oven to 180C and allow it to warm up whilst you cook. Soak your oats in a bowl with the almond milk for 10-15 minutes so they can soften up. Meanwhile, mash your banana roughly with a fork, then combine the oats, cacao powder, baking powder and banana in a bowl. Pour into a small baking dish then top with the remaining banana slices and bake for approximately 20 minutes or until crispy and lightly browned on the top, then add the raspberries and enjoy!

  2. Would it be possible to prepare the ingredients the day before and then put it in the oven the next morning? I LOVE baked oatmeal, but it takes a lot of time to bake... I start school early, but I need a good breakfast!

    1. I don't think it would be very nice cold, it would be very dry and chewy!

  7. I just made this oatmeal for breakfast. It tasted absolutely delicious! I added some cinnamon to it because I'm in love with cinnamon/'nana combos.
    I accidentally combined the baking powder too so it didn't raise but I'll definitely do this once again :)

  9. I don't have baking powder and vanilla extract. Can I omit them? And what does preheat actually mean? Like you heat it at 180C without anything in the oven? And do I bake it at 180C as well?

    1. I'd recommend baking powder, it's essential for baked goods!

      Preheat means turn the oven to 180C so it is ready when you want to bake it at 180C
