My Cherry Chili Brownie Baked Oatmeal was inspired by chocolate my Mom gave me. It was cherry & chili dark chocolate and I absolutely loved it. The only thing it was lacking was . . . the chili flavor.

I was really curious how cherries, chili, and chocolate taste together and that’s how the idea for my baked oatmeal was born. It was quite a risky combination, but it turned out great. Sweet mashed banana and cherries balance out the spiciness of chili, so your mouth isn’t burning (too much😉).

    Wow, chili….cherries….chocolate?! I’ve heard of chocolate with a little cayenne, but never with full-on chili powder! I’m really interested because I love both but I’d never think of combining them together!
