Chocolate Protein Baked Oatmeal

It’s time again to level up our protein oatmeal! This Chocolate Protein Baked Oatmeal only takes a few minutes to prep, it uses common ingredients, and is packed with great macros. If you’re looking to change up your proats routine and you’re craving chocolate, this is the recipe to try.

Start this one with either a blender or food processor. Add right into it 1 large whole egg, 3 ounces of an unsweetened milk substitute, 1/2 cup of rolled oats, 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder, 1 scoop of a good tasting chocolate protein powder, 2 ounces of Greek yogurt, 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder, and a pinch of salt.

If your protein powder isn’t “sweet” enough for you, add in a little sweetener!

Did you know? Rolled oats are a nutritional powerhouse, providing essential fiber for digestion, prolonged satiety, and balanced carbohydrates. Packed with vitamins and antioxidants, they offer a versatile, affordable, and quick option (baked oatmeal!) for a nutritious diet.

Blend or process all of those ingredients together until smooth.

Next, take out an oven safe dish or pan and pour your mix right into it. You can optionally coat it with cooking spray if you have plans to remove it but I usually eat it right from whatever I’m baking it in so there’s no need for the extra calories.

As for the dish or pan size? The smallest one I’d use is 2 cups, which is what I used today.

Last, top it with whatever you want for some additional texture. I went with a couple sugar free chocolate chips. Some of my other favorite chocolate protein baked oatmeal toppings?

Baked Oatmeal Toppings

  • Dried Fruit (Banana Slices!)
  • Nuts
  • Peanut Butter Chips
  • Raisins
  • Chia Seeds
  • Coconut

Put that into the oven on 350F/176C for around 20-30 minutes. Your baking time will be dependent on the size dish or pan you use.

A couple tips for this one?

  • You can bake it the night before and eat it cold the next day, it tastes great both ways.
  • Make oat muffins by cutting the baking time in half or less depending on your muffin pan size.

If you like protein oatmeal, baking it doesn’t take too much longer and at least to me? Nets a way better result. Don’t get me wrong, I still love a quick protein oatmeal recipe if I’m strapped for time but when I’m not, this is the way to go.

Ready for lunch? How about a Greek Yogurt Pizza!?
