3 Reasons Why You’ll Love This Macro-Friendly Baked Oatmeal Recipe

  1. It’s double chocolate! This baked oats recipe includes subtly flavored chocolate oats with warm, melty chocolate chips spread all throughout. It’ll make you feel like you’re eating a browning for breakfast. And the dollop of Greek Yogurt on the side is the perfect flavor contrast!
  2. It’s a meal prep staple. Let’s face it, some breakfast meal prep recipes aren’t very good past the first or second day, especially the ones made with eggs and veggies – things get soggy! This double chocolate baked oatmeal is a slam dunk all week long.
  3. You probably already have most of the ingredients on hand. I love a simple recipe that’s free of complicated, hard-to-find ingredients, and that’s exactly what this recipe is. With a few pantry staples, some baking essentials, and you’re ready to set yourself up for a week of success.

Swaps or Alternatives

Unsweetened almond milk can be replaced with any other type you prefer or have on hand. If you don’t have egg whites or you would like to up the healthy fat content of your baked oatmeal meal prep, you can swap a whole egg for the egg whites.

You can easily make this recipe in any flavor you like. I also like to make this with frozen berries in place of chocolate chips. Lastly, feel free to omit the Greek Yogurt or use any flavor or variety of yogurt that you like.

Quick Tip

Make sure to melt your coconut oil a tad before adding it to your mixture to ensure that it mixes in smoothly and doesn’t leave greedy clumps. If you want to make this a double batch, swap your 8×8 pan for a 9×13 pan.

Notes

The Greek yogurt is optional, however, if you’re planning to eat this for breakfast, the addition of the Greek yogurt will make this more of a balanced, filling meal. For meal-prepping purposes, place your baked oatmeal in the refrigerator and warm it in the microwave for 20-30 seconds before serving.
