Chocolate Protein Baked Oatmeal - Single Serving
Single serving of basically a chocolate brownie for breakfast. It's packed with protein, only sweetened with bananas, and has a dense brownie-like texture. It's also checks the gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free box for those that need that! Minimal ingredients and so delicious!
- ½ spotty banana mashed
- ½ cup quick oats
- ½ cup cashew milk or milk of choice
- 1 scoop or 2 tbsp chocolate protein (I used this one)
- ½ tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp cinnamon optional
- ¼ tsp vanilla extract
- ⅛ tsp or a pinch of sea salt
Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
In a small bowl, mash banana.
Next, add in the rest of the ingredients: oats, milk, protein, baking powder, cinnamon, vanilla, and sea salt. Mix until well combined.
Grease your ramekin (I used a 4.5" diameter & 6 oz. capacity) or any similar size dish. Bake for 25-30 minutes until the inside is set but still soft. Enjoy warm and top with whatever you like! I did peanut butter and banana!
Also, store in the fridge for 4-5 days and enjoy cold (which I love) or reheat in the morning. Freezing instructions in the notes!
For Storing: Let oatmeal cool completely. Then, cover with plastic wrap or remove from ramekin and store in an airtight container in the fridge for 4-5 days.
For Freezing: To freeze, cool completely. Then wrap in plastic wrap and store in a freezer bag. Lasts in the freezer for up to 3 months.
