As an adult I never liked oatmeal. The reason I never liked oats was because of the texture and they were really never satisfying to me. These baked oats are just like eating dessert for breakfast. When the oats come out of the oven it almost looked like a chocolate chip cookie. After trying baked oats this way I could eat them every day for breakfast now!
This baked oatmeal is best served warm. The chocolate chips get a little melted in the oven and melted peanut butter is so good drizzled on the top! There are many different ways you can make these baked oats but the base is very similar to an overnight oats recipe. I chose to use a recipe that didn’t call for bananas and no eggs.
How to Make Baked Oats
For the full recipe, please see the recipe card below.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Mix together all the ingredients in a bowl. Pour the batter into a greased muffin tin or 8 oz round ramekin.
Please Note: I used a jumbo muffin pan. If you don’t have a jumbo muffin pan divide the batter into 2 muffin holes.
Blender: For a smoother batter puree the oatmeal mixture without the chocolate chips in a blender until smooth. Pour the batter into a muffin tin or 8 oz round ramekin. Then top with chocolate chips.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Best served warmed.
Ingredients for Baked Oats
Oats – I used rolled oats but any type of oatmeal will work for this.
Milk – Have a nut allergy use any milk substitute that works for you!
Maple Syrup – This is for sweetness. I have not tried this using other sugar substitutes.
PB2 – PB2 helps to keep the WW points lower but if you love regular peanut butter that works as well. If you are allergic to peanut butter use other nut butters that work for you.
Chocolate Chips – Sub sugar-free chocolate chips, raisins, blueberries, or whatever you like. Peanut butter and chocolate are just a great combo that works well together.
Baking powder – helps the batter rise
Variations for Baked Oats
Add some cocoa powder to make chocolate baked oats
Use your favorite fruit
