Brownie Batter Breakfast Bake






I found this recipe on Running With Spoons....because you can't eat with scissors.

This is not sweet.  It's full of fiber and a delicious way to start the day.

Ingredients:

⅓ cup rolled oats
2 Tbsp. flour of choice( I used graham flour)
1 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 tsp. baking powder
pinch of salt
⅓ cup almond milk
1/2 - 1 Tbsp. maple syrup, to taste
1 tsp. coconut oil, melted ( used peanut oil)
1/2 tsp. vanilla flavor ( used Watkins Caramel Extract) 
1 - 2 Tbsp. dairy-free chocolate chips ( didn't use)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 325 degrees

Spray or lightly coat an oven proof bowl or an individual ramekin with nonstick cooking spray- set aside

Mix together the oats, flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Add almond milk, maple syrup, peanut oil, and vanilla, mixing until well combined in a medium size bowl.

Fold in the chips and set a few aside for the top.

Add the batter to the ramekin or oven proof bowl. Sprinkle a few of the chips over the top if desired.

Bake for 15- 20 minutes at 325 or until the oatmeal consistency you want.

Remove and allow to cool for 5 minutes.

Note: I made this a few times. I baked it longer so it had the consistency of a brownie. Test it with a toothpick. It's really good and nice healthy breakfast.

  1. I would love this for breakfast. We do enjoy oatmeal different ways-have never made a chocolate version...what's not to like about that? NOTHING in my book!

    Thanks Linda. :)

  3. I can't believe I missed this yesterday. I was so busy and had to leave the house early. So glad that I checked back today. This is JUST my thing. Looks so good, it had to be made with me in mind. I will have to copy this out right now, so I will remember to buy what I need. Thank you Linda, this is so me. Can't wait to try it.

  7. We made these for breakfast this morning. They are so delicious it almost feels wrong to eat them for breakfast! I was thinking maybe a spoon of peanut butter would be nice in these as well. We have a big family so I increased everything by 6 and then poured it into a 12 hole muffin tray and baked them 20 minutes. Thank-you so much for this excellent recipe.

    1. I am so HAPPY you made it and liked it!

      What kind of flour did you use?

      Peanut butter would be excellent. I was also thinking Nutella would be a great addition.

      It means so much to me that you took the time to comment how much you enjoyed the recipe. Thank you.

      Hugs,
      Linda
