Dark Chocolate Banana Bread Baked Oatmeal made with gluten-free, dairy-free ingredients for an easy and delicious homemade oatmeal bake! Plus there’s a boost of collagen peptides for added nutrients and protein.
It feels like forever ago since I have shared a baked oatmeal recipe with you guys!
Oatmeal bakes were actually one of the first recipes I used to make when I started experimenting in the kitchen. I loved how it combined a little cake-like dish with oatmeal for breakfast and how easy they are to make. I used to just toss in any mix-in’s and things we had in the fridge or pantry and make so many different types of baked oatmeals.
This one though is hands down my favorite. I guess it could be because it has a bit of a banana bread theme (shocker) and I also think the ratio of oats to the other ingredients used are on point. It just soft on the inside and the outside has a little crunchy edge and “crust” of sorts.
The best part about this recipe though? It is ready in just 25 minutes and you’ll get 4-5 servings out of it so you are set for the week! I love adding a slice to my breakfast plate with some coconut yogurt, fresh fruit and granola on top. It feels like I’m eating cake for breakfast or a big oatmeal cookie of sorts. Plus this recipe has an extra boost to it from the collagen peptides I add to the batter.
