Baked oats are one of tiktok’s favourite breakfasts, and for good reason. If you’re unfamiliar with the concept, its basically an oat flour-based cake and is the best breakfast idea since sliced bread (literally). My homemade chocolate chip baked oats are no exception.

How to make chocolate chip baked oats

Blend the oats into a fine powder (this is oat flour). Add to a bowl along with the baking powder (photo 1). Mix in the wet ingredients to form a batter (photo 2) then pour into a greased ramekin and top with chocolate chips or chunks (photo 3).

Then bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown and delicious!

Notes on this recipe

  • For a vegan-friendly option, substitute one ripe banana for the 2 eggs, and omit the dates to avoid it becoming too sweet
  • If your dates are too hard, soak them in hot water for a few minutes to soften them up.
  • If you wish, add in a small handful of chopped walnuts or almonds before baking.

FAQ

Can I use any chocolate in this recipe?

Of course! Dark, milk or white chocolate all work well. You can use chips or chunks – whatever you fancy. Or a combination!

How do I make double chocolate oatmeal?

Replace 1 tbsp of the oats with 1 tbsp cocoa powder and follow the rest of the recipe as usual.

Can I add protein powder?

You can! Make sure you use a protein powder with an appropriate flavour. Add 1/2 a scoop of your favourite protein powder per serving and add additional milk as needed to avoid the baked oats becoming dry.
