Ingredients You’ll Need

  • Oats I use old fashioned rolled oats for this recipe, the key base ingredient that is needed to make this brownie baked oatmeal.
  • Banana – ripe bananas are the key sweetener in the recipe. Spottier bananas are much sweeter than green or just ripe bananas. You can also sub the banana for applesauce or Greek yogurt.
  • Egg – Helps bind the recipe.
  • Milk – adds a ton of creaminess to the oats. You can use whichever kind you have on hand or enjoy most.
  • Baking Powder – acts as the leavening agent to ensure the baked oatmeal turns out nice and fluffy.
  • Cocoa Powder – adds the chocolatey flavor!
  • Chocolate Chips – adds some extra sweetness to the oatmeal.

Recipe Tips

  • Quick oats vs rolled oats – quick oats will give a denser, more brownie-like texture and rolled oats will make it a little more chewy and crumbly.
  • This baked oatmeal is best enjoyed warm. Either warm from the oven or reheated in the microwave. It’s not as good served chilled.
  • Don’t over-mix the batter. Pulse or blend together just until everything is combined. This will help create fluffy baked oats.
  • Double or triple the recipe. To double or triple the recipe you can throw everything together in a blender and just divide it into multiple ramekins.

Variations

  • Add some toppings! Berries, nut butter, toasted coconut, banana slices and chopped nuts are some favorites.
  • Stir half a teaspoon of instant coffee into the batter, or replace two tablespoons of the milk of choice with brewed espresso for more intense chocolate flavor.

Storing & Freezing

Storing: After the oatmeal has cooled, you can store it covered or in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. Reheat in the microwave until warmed through.

Freezing: To freeze, make sure the baked oatmeal is cooled completely. Cover tightly and freeze for up to 3 months.

How many calories!? Yummy Couldn't you run the banana and egg first to make sure it's well mashed. Then,add remaining ingredients except for the chocolate chips (walnuts)for the topping?
