Healthy Baked Oatmeal Recipe With Chocolate
Hey guys, here is the new baked oatmeal recipe that is absolutely delicious! We’re elevating your oatmeal recipes to the next level.
Oats are a great substitute for rice or flour since it is a whole grain food. Its fiber, vitamins, and minerals are good for digestion and are the perfect snack to reduce your hunger.
It can vary in different forms. Oat groats, the most intact and whole form of oats, take a long time to cook. For this reason, most people prefer rolled, crushed, or steel-cut oats. But for this recipe, we’ll be using gluten-free rolled oats.
For our dry ingredients, we’ll put in the rolled oats, baking powder, and cacao powder (or dark chocolate powder) in a bowl and mix it all in.
Now for the wet ingredients, peel and mash a ripe banana with a fork in a large bowl. Toss your ripe avocado in there and mash it together. Add in your almond milk, coconut oil, and agave in there. If you don’t have agave available with you, you can use raw honey, maple syrup, or brown sugar to sweeten up your muffins.
Next, mix your dry ingredients and slowly add it to our bowl of wet ingredients. Gently fold in all of the ingredients together using a mixing spatula. Using a mini muffin pan, spray it with a baking spray, then add about a tablespoon to each one. Top them off with dark chocolate chunks and sprinkle sea salt on top. You can also add in shaved almonds on top to add crunch to your muffins.
Lastly, bake your muffins in the oven for 25 minutes. Let it slightly cool and there you go! You just made your baked oatmeal recipe. This snack is good for sharing with your family and friends. This is a simple baked oatmeal recipe but a nutrient-packed, healthy, and flavorful recipe.
Today, I’m taking a walk down memory lane and REMIXING one of my first YouTube videos – baked oatmeal for meal prep.
