Baked Chocolate Chip Cookie Oatmeal

Baked Chocolate Chip Cookie Oatmeal! This is my favorite breakfast! Honestly tastes like a cookie for less than 250 calories per HUGE slice!

There aren’t many breakfasts that can make me swoon. Not many healthy ones in any case. Oatmeal? Good, but where is the cake. Eggs? Decent, but plz bring me some pie. Greek yogurt? Meh. The only thing going through my head… is my pie here yet?

But this. This is something special. This is the sort of healthy breakfast that makes you feel like you’re biting into a giant chocolate chip oat cookie. I busted out this recipe on a whim as an adaptation to my Baked Honey Berry Oat recipe (which has rave reviews) early Monday morning, and it was gone within an hour. I didn’t even get a chance to photograph it the firs time around since  the girls and I stood around the just-out-of-the-oven pan fighting over bites. The combination of the warm and comforting spiced oats coupled with melty-chocolate chips covering the top is absolutely divine and doesn’t leave my sweet-tooth wanting. Add in a freshly brewed cup of coffee to sip on and you are in h-e-a-v-e-n!

One thing I love about this recipe is how customizable it is. You are in total control and can’t really go wrong with the base recipe. Feel free to add in special touches like nuts (walnuts in here would be fantastic), coconut flakes, dried fruit, etc. The world is your oyster!

This recipe clocks in at just under 250 calorie per 1/6th of the pan (aka a huge slice).

New favorite breakfast? I think yeeeesss.

Serves: 6
Ingredients
  • Dry Mixture:
  • 2 cups oats (I used regular (not the quick-cook) Quaker oats)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar
  • Wet Mixture:
  • 2 cups nonfat milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp melted butter
  • ¼ cup chocolate chips
  • optional: powdered sugar and milk for drizzle
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a medium sized bowl, mix together the oats, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and brown sugar. Set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, vanilla extract, honey, and melted butter. If things aren't combining well, slightly heat up the mixture in a saucepan or (carefully!) in the microwave.
  4. Layer the dry mixture evenly on a greased 2 quart baking dish and gently pour on the wet mixture. Sprinkle the chocolate chips on top and bake for 20 minutes or until the liquid is mostly absorbed. The rest will be absorbed as the baked oats cool.
  5. Let cool slightly and serve hot!

    Ohmygoose yes. H-E-A-V-E-N right there! I can practically conjure up the mix of textures and flavours (alongside the coffee of course!) on my tongue. Let’s hope I can actually be bothered to photograph and share when I do make it – but wow, this is winner *fistbump* :D .
