Triple Chocolate Brownie Baked Oats

Triple Chocolate Brownie Baked Oats (Vegan GF)

Rich and chocolatey baked oats with a soft and chewy texture and topped with cooling yoghurt and fresh berries. This make-ahead brunch dish is naturally vegan, gluten-free and wholesome.

I love baked oats, there’s no denying it and this year I have fallen in love with them even more. I’ve taken my previous single-serve style baked oats and made recipes that are better for meal prep, serving hungry friends and/or family members for weekend brunch dates or just enjoying all by yourself. The texture of these Triple Chocolate Brownie Baked Oats is next to none and like my Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Courgette Baked Oats and Blueberry Banana and Chocolate Baked Oats, there is so much more joy when making a larger batch.

This recipe for Triple Chocolate Brownie Baked Oats makes for the richest and most chocolate-y baked oats, with all the brownie-like flavours and textures and pieces of sweet gooey banana. Straight from the oven, it’s slightly gooey and softer, but if you enjoy it cold, it’s much firmer and chewier like a soft flapjack which I love.

So, what goes into these Triple Chocolate Brownie Baked Oats to make them delicious, rich and still wholesome?

  • Bananas: these act as a natural sweetener and help to bind the oats where non-vegan recipes often call for eggs. The riper the banana, the better the results as the flavours are sweeter and the texture is softer.
  • Chia seeds:  these help bind the batter, too. You could also use ground flaxseed here.
  • Plant-based milk: use your favourite kind of milk as they all will work but may change the flavour slightly. My go-to varieties are oat, almond or soya.
  • Maple syrup: just a little bit for a natural sweetness and it adds to the sticky texture.
  • Oats: the base of all good baked oats! Use GF where needed.
  • Cacao powder: make sure you opt for an unsweetened cocoa or raw cacao powder here. That said, any chocolate drinking powder will work.
  • Baking powder and salt: for the lovely rise and the salty notes contrast so well with the rich and sweet chocolate elements.
  • Cacao nibs: the second chocolate element. I love the crunch of using cacao nibs, but you could use extra chocolate chips, instead.
  • Chocolate chips: the third chocolate factor in these Triple Chocolate Brownie Baked Oats. Make sure they are diary-free and free of refined sugars, if needed.

Simply stir together all of the ingredients for these Triple Chocolate Brownie Baked Oats and pour into a dish. Bake in the oven until nice and crisp on top and springy. I love to serve this warm with lots of cooling coconut yoghurt, fresh berries and maybe been extra melted chocolate. A slice of baked oats is also delicious served cold with a splash of milk and extra fruit.
