Today, I’m taking a walk down memory lane and REMIXING one of my first YouTube videos – baked oatmeal for meal prep.

This version is redone in order to: 1) stay moist throughout the entire week, whether you heat it up or not; and 2) help you practice better portion control and give you “just enough” to help curb cravings.

Healthy Baked Chocolate Oatmeal Bites

Ingredients

Ingredients for 48 mini-muffins (UPDATED):

  • Dry ingredients:
    • 2 cups gluten-free rolled oats
    • 2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1/2 cup cacao powder (or dark chocolate powder)
  • Wet ingredients:
    • 2 ripe bananas
    • 1 small ripe avocado
    • 2 eggs
    • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
    • 1/2 cup almond milk, unsweetened
    • 1/3 cup agave (or raw honey)
      • or 1/2 cup if you have a sweet tooth…like me.
  •  Garnish
    • 12 tablespoons dark chocolate chunks (1 tablespoon should be enough for 4 mini-muffins, about ~2 chunks on each mini-muffin)
    • shaved almonds (optional)
    • coarse sea salt

 

Steps

*** – You can use a regular-sized muffin pan.

  1. Set oven to 350F.
  2. Peel the ripe bananas and mash them up with a fork in a large bowl.
  3. Add ripe avocado to the banana and mash  together.
  4. Beat in two eggs, then add the rest of the wet ingredients. Mix together and set aside.
  5. In a separate bowl, mix together all of the dry ingredients, then slowly add to the bowl of wet ingredients. Gently fold everything together using a spatula.
  6. Spray a mini muffin pan with baking spray, then add about a tablespoon of the mixture to each one. Top them off with 2 chocolate chunks and a pinch shaved almonds. Garnish with a pinch of sea salt on top.
  7. Bake in the oven for 25 minutes or until you can pierce them with a toothpick and it comes out clean.
  8. Let them slightly cool, then remove them from the muffin pan and place on a cooling rack or a plate to finish cooling. Store in an airtight container or sealable bag.
