Chocolate Orange Baked Oats

Chocolate baked oats are my go-to when I want a brownie or cake for breakfast, but also a meal that will nourish me. I love my large batch zucchini brownie baked oats and my single serve chocolate chip cookie baked oats, but this recipe fits perfectly in-between.

Ingredients:

-- Oats -- Orange Juice -- Cocoa Powder -- Baking Powder -- Salt -- Maple Syrup -- Chocolate Chips

Do I have to blend these baked oats?

No. You may mix everything together in a large bowl prior to distributing into the ramekins and bake as directed! I just personally love the cake-like texture.

Storage

These oats are best eaten when fresh. However if you would like to store them they can be stored in the fridge for up to 5 days in an airtight container. To reheat, just microwave for 1 minute until warm.

Top Tip

A high powered blender or food processor will work best. However, if you are looking for a mess-free clean up, try adding all the ingredients to a large bowl and blending using an immersion blender.

Can I use a larger baking dish instead of a ramekin?

Yes you may! If you would like to use a 22 oz baking dish such as this one you may, however please note this will affect the cook time. If you decide to use this method you may decrease the cook time by 5.

Will different sized dishes affect the cooking time?

YES! The surface area of your cooking dish will greatly affect the cook time these baked oats require. Smaller dishes such as 8oz dishes will require more cooking time as the batter will fill it higher. On the other hand, larger dishes will require less cooking time as the batter will be spread thinner.
