Chocolate & Strawberry Baked Oatmeal

A few months ago I was on a health kick and I was watching a lot of Jon Venus (a vegan YouTuber/body builder). I tried out one of his baked oatmeal recipes and tweaked it a bit to make it my own. You can see the video where me and the kiddos tried this here.

It’s such an appealing idea because it makes a TON of oatmeal that can feed me and all three kids for more than one meal. Thank goodness that body builders eat a lot! Their recipes fit my family size just perfect! One night I was wanting to make some for the week ahead and decided to play around with ingredients that I had on hand. What we created was a bit of delicious, making stuff up magic.

A small disclaimer… Jon’s measurements were in metric so I tried my best to do these measurements with what I had. However, I’m from Arkansas, raised in the South… We are chronic “eye-ballers” just throwing stuff together. Please don’t forget the value of tasting as you go. What can I say y’all? If you wanted a perfect recipe with perfect measurements you stumbled across the wrong gal. Give it a try! Tag me on social media if you do so I can see! Plus, I want you to share your favorite oatmeal and fruit combo in the comments below. Do you like peaches and almonds? Cranberry raisins and sunflower seeds? Sharing is caring my friend!

I have included a link to a few of my favorite ingredients that I love to use in these recipes below that I have tried and tested. Please feel free to check them out but please keep in mind:

Chocolate and Strawberry Baked Oatmeal

  • Servings: 8
  • Difficulty: Super Easy
  • Print

Ingredients:

  • 300 Grams of Rolled Oats
  • 600 Milliliters of Warm Water
  • 1 Small Bag of Frozen Strawberries
  • 1/2 Cup of Silk Dark Chocolate Almond Milk
  • 2 Scoops of Vega Chocolate Protein Powder
  • 1/2 to 1 Cup of Chocolate Chips (I typically use Enjoy Life.)
  • 1/4 Cup of Maple Syrup (Optional for added sweetness.)

 

Directions:

  1. Soak your oats for an hour ahead of time with the warm water and preheat your oven to 355F degrees.
  2. Add your soaked oats, almond milk, and protein in a bowl until well combined. The protein powder can be slightly clumpy so stir until smooth.
  3. Then, stir in any extras like chocolate chips. You really don’t need the maple syrup, but if you’re not used to less sweet plant based meals you may need to add a little sweetness.
  4. Pour into a deep casserole dish or baking pan.
  5. Insert the strawberries down into the oatmeal, slightly spaced apart. I used whole strawberries but feel free to slice them smaller if you like.
  6. Place the casserole dish in the middle of the oven rack for 45 minutes.
  7. Enjoy! You can eat this hot and warm straight out of the oven, but it also tastes great cold then next morning.
