Ingredients

  • 3 cups rolled oats *
  • ½ cup peanut butter ( or any other nut/seed butter of choice )
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder ( or cacao / carob powder )
  • 4 medium ripe banana ( about 400g / 14 oz )
  • ¾ cup almond milk
  • pinch of salt ( optional )
  • 2-4 tablespoon sweetener of choice ( optional, see notes )

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 180c / 350f. Grease / line a 8x8 square baking pan with parchment paper.
  • Mash the bananas using a fork or potato masher until smooth. It is ok to have a few chunks left.
  • In another large mixing bowl, mix together the cocoa powder and oats.
  • Add in the mashed bananas together with the peanut butter and almond milk into the mixing bowl containing the dry ingredients. Mix until everything is well incorporated.
  • Transfer the mixture into the baking pan. Using the back of a spoon or a spatula, gently press down the mixture so that it is evenly distributed.
  • Bake it for 20-25 mins, or until a toothpick comes out clean and the top is set.
  • Let it cool down before slicing and serving. Optionally, drizzle it with tons of peanut butter !

Notes

*Use gluten-free oats to make this recipe gluten-free. You can also use quick oats instead but there will be less texture to your baked oats. 
**I find it sweet enough, If you prefer a sweeter baked oats, I suggest adding 2-4 tablespoons of sweetener like coconut sugar, maple syrup or agave syrup.
Baked oatmeal can be stored in the fridge for up to 4 days and in the freezer for 3 months. To freeze, simply place individual portions into freezer / zip-top bags and freeze them for up to 3 months.
