Dark Chocolate Banana Bread Baked Oatmeal

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.



  • 1 cup mashed banana (about 2 ripe bananas)
  • 2 pasture-raised eggs (or sub flax egg)
  • 1/3 cup creamy nut butter
  • 1 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk
  • 1 tablespoons liquid coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups gluten-free rolled oats
  • 4 tablespoons Vital Proteins Vanilla Collagen Creamer (adds extra nutrients, flavor and protein! you can sub regular collagen peptides as well)
  • 2 tablespoons flaxseeds
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips or chunks of choice


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease an 10 or 12-inch cast iron skillet with coconut oil (or use a 9×9 baking dish or pie dish!)
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the banana, egg, nut butter, milk, coconut oil and vanilla extract until well combined
  3. Mix in the rolled oats, collagen creamer, flaxseeds, chia seeds and cinnamon and stir well to evenly combine
  4. Fold in dark chocolate chips then add to skillet and bake for about 25 minutes (I stuck a toothpick in to see if it was ready)
  5. Enjoy the oatmeal bake with desired toppings (I love using yogurt, fresh fruit, anything!)
