These healthy Chocolate Baked Oats are my new favourite breakfast - dairy free, refined sugar free and wheat free, these whole food baked chocolate oats are a healthy breakfast that taste like dessert.Jump to Recipe
My obsession for baked oats continues with this luscious chocolate chip version. Ingredients that you need include:
- rolled oats (organic and wheat free)
- baking powder (aluminium and gluten free)
- cacao powder (or cocoa powder)
- sea salt
- dark chocolate chips (I've opted for an organic, vegan brand)
- pure maple syrup (not maple flavoured syrup)
- extra virgin cold pressed coconut oil
- vanilla extract
- almond milk (or other plant based milk for nut free)
- free range eggs
How to Make Chocolate Baked Oats
Making baked oats is really simple and quick. Simply:
- blend the oat flour in a food processor or blender to create a course 'meal' like texture (as pictured below).
- If the coconut oil is solid, melt by placing the 3 tablespoons into a small bowl, place the small bowl into a larger bowl and add boiling water to the larger bowl. Let sit until the coconut oil is liquified.
- In a medium sized mixing bowl, whisk together the coconut oil, eggs, maple syrup, vanilla extract and milk.
- In a seperate larger bowl mix together the oats, choc chips, baking powder, sea salt and cacao powder.
- Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and whisk to combine.
- Pour mixture into well oiled individual baking dishes (250mL capacity) and top with extra choc chips.
- Bake and enjoy!
Are These Healthy Chocolate Baked Oats?
In short, yes! These healthy chocolate baked oats are:
- free from refined sugars
- high in wholegrain, low glycemic index carbohydrates
- high in protein (16grams per serve)
I would recommend these as an occasional breakfast rather than an everyday breakfast as they do a moderate amount of added sugars due to the maple syrup and chocolate chips.
