  • Author: Simply Fresh Foodie

  • Yield: 1 serving 1x


These brownie batter baked oats are simply divine. Chocolatey, with a gooey melted chocolate centre, they have a rich chocolate flavour that seems more like dessert than breakfast.


Units Scale
  • 1/2 cup oats (rolled)
  • 1/2 medium banana
  • 1/3 cup milk of choice
  • 2 tablespoons cacao powder
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup/honey (or 3 drops liquid stevia)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • 1 square chocolate (or mini chocolate bar)


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C and grease a small ramekin with spray, coconut oil, or butter.
  2. In a blender or food processor, combine the oats, banana, almond milk, cacao powder, syrup/honey, baking powder and sea salt (everything except the chocolate). For these oats.
  3. Fill the ramekin ¾ full with the batter. Place your chocolate square in the centre of the ramekin. Pour the rest of the batter on top.
  4. Bake your oats in the preheated oven for 20 minutes.
  5. The ramekin will be hot, so use an oven mitt to take your baked oats out of the oven. Let them cool slightly above room temperature, then eat and enjoy!
