Notes

Recipe Notes: 
  • Chocolate Baked Oats: add 2 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder.
  • Protein-packed Baked Oats: add a scoop or two of your favorite protein powder to give this oatmeal a protein boost. You can also add flaxseed meal, collagen, and chia seeds to make this extra nutrient-dense. 
  • Double Chocolate Baked Oats: add two tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder and 1/4 cup more of dark chocolate chips. Omit the banana and peanut butter and add 2 tablespoons of plain or vanilla yogurt instead. 
  • White Chocolate Macadamia Baked Oats: omit the banana, peanut butter, chocolate chips, and maple syrup. Swap for 2 tablespoons of plain or vanilla yogurt, 2 tablespoons of honey, 1/4 cup of macadamia nuts, and 1/4 cup of white chocolate chips.
  • Snickerdoodle Baked Oats: Omit the banana, peanut butter, and maple syrup. Swap for 3 tablespoons of vanilla yogurt, 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, and 2 tablespoons of honey. Lightly sprinkle;e the tops with cinnamon and sugar on top. 
  • Chocolate Peanut Butter Baked Oats: add 2 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder and add an extra scoop of peanut butter to the center. Check out my Instagram video on how I made it. 
  • Chocolate Chip Baked Oats: omit the banana, peanut butter, and maple syrup. Swap for 3 tablespoons of vanilla yogurt, 2 tablespoons of honey, and 1/4 cup of milk chocolate chips.
  • Leftovers: Store leftovers in an airtight container or cover each ramekin tightly with plastic wrap. Place in the refrigerator and store for up to 5 days.
  • Freezing: You can also freeze these baked oats after they are baked. Cover tightly and place in an airtight container or heavy-duty ziplock bag. Let the Oatmeal Baked thaw overnight and heat in the oven at 350 degrees F until warm, about 10 minutes.
