Chocolate Chip Baked Oatmeal

This Chocolate Chip Baked Oatmeal is delicious, easy to make with only a handful of ingredients and healthy! It’s also vegan and gluten free!

Who doesn’t love a chocolatey brekkie that is actually healthy? This girl definetely, does!

While I am not usually inclined to indulge in sweet breakfasts, from time to time, I decide I should treat my husband to something sweet. While making it sweet, we also prefer to start our days with something nutritious and healthy too so creating recipes that do both is essential.

Naturally, I have to find a way to include some chocolate in it.

Also, these chocolatey breakfasts also tend to double for snacks later in the day too.

Can’t blame a girl for digging in to more than one portion of this baked oatmeal. It is seriously good. And oh so chocolatey.

The recipe I planned out was with chocolate chips. But I couldn’t stop there. The baked oatmeal seemed to be begging for more drizzled chocolate and I was happy to oblige its request.

Did I mention that this recipe is healthy?

It actually is. Despite a good dose of chocolate (dark chocolate). Dark chocolate actually offers health benefits. Its a good source of antioxidants and provides a whole host of health benefits.

My recipe also includes other healthy ingredients like oats, ground flax seeds, and maple syrup. No refined sugar here which is always something we aim to do wherever we can to healthify sweeter recipes.

The recipe is also gluten free and vegan (if you use non-dairy milk)!

Just some of the reasons I love this recipe. Are you sold yet? I hope you give it a try and let me know what you think!

Bon appetit!
