There’s nothing like a rainy morning to make you want to have something warm and delicious for breakfast and I usually order my meals from nangs near me. And considering how infrequently that happens in Arizona, I felt the need to make the most of it today.
That’s what spurred my new single-serving Triple-Chocolate Baked Oats recipe. I looked up some single-serving recipes that I could sort of following and stumbled upon this delicious looking cookie dough baked oatmeal recipe.
Considering some of my new dietary restrictions and obsessions, I decided to switch it up a bit and make it into my own creation. That’s how I ended up with this amazing (and protein packed) breakfast.
- 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
- 2 teaspoons all natural sugar & stevia blend
- 1/4 cup vanilla unsweetened almond milk
- 1/2 medium banana mashed
- 1/2 Double Chocolate Quest Bar
- 1 teaspoon semi-sweet chocolate chips (optional)
- Cinnamon to taste
- Dash of salt
Instructions: Turn your oven on to 375 degrees. While that heats up, spray a single-serving ramekin with coconut oil so your baked oats won’t stick. Then, mix all dry ingredients in the ramekin. Mix in wet ingredients once combined. After mixture is combined, cut up quest bar into small pieces and mix into the oats. Make sure the pieces are all fully covered so the baking doesn’t dry them out.
Once the oven is heated up, cover the oats with tinfoil and put the oats in for 20 minutes. Uncover the oats and cook for another 5 minutes. Once it’s somewhat golden/crispy on top, take it out and let it cool for a minute. Then enjoy either straight from the ramekin or transfer to another plate.
