Ingredients needed for Chocolate Chip Baked Oats…

All you need for this recipe is about 10 simple, healthy, & wholesome ingredients!

  • Oats: The base of this breakfast recipe is old fashioned oats! You will need 2 cups.
  • Vanilla Protein Powder: Chocolate Chip Baked Oatmeal is also made with vanilla protein powder. It adds a delicious flavor, sweetness, and of course a protein boost! Add 1/4 cup, I recommend this Garden of Life Vegan Vanilla Protein Powder.
  • Almond Milk: You will need 2 cups of almond milk too! I always use unsweetened vanilla almond milk, but you can really use any milk you have on hand and enjoy.
  • Applesauce: Applesauce adds some extra moisture and natural sweetness here. Add 1/4 cup.
  • Pure Maple Syrup: The main source of sweetness in these baked oats is pure maple syrup. It is a refined sugar free sweetener with a rich & delicious taste. Use 3 tbsp!
  • Chocolate Chips: Can’t have chocolate chip baked oatmeal without chocolate chips! I always use these dairy free semi sweet chips, but feel free to use whatever you like. You’ll need 1/4 cup plus a little extra!
  • Vanilla Extract: 2 tsp of vanilla extract adds some absolutely delicious flavor here.
  • Baking Powder: To bake to perfection, add 2 tsp of baking powder to this recipe.
  • Salt: Lastly, use a pinch of salt to balance out the sweet. 1/4 tsp to be exact!

How to best enjoy Protein Baked Oatmeal…

I recommend topping this oatmeal with the nut butter of your choice (I recommend peanut butter!), banana slices or a different fruit, and a drizzle of honey! You can also do this warm or cold.

Tip! When re-heating I love to add a splash of almond milk to the oats, as they tend to dry out a bit in the fridge.

I always always always use Garden of Life Vanilla Plant Protein Powder. It is my all time favorite, has a great taste, and bakes very well! But feel free to use your own favorite vanilla protein powder or whatever you have on hand.
