There’s something you should know about mango in baked oats. Mangoes pack a lot of moisture, so the oatmeal does not get quite as cakey as it would with a banana or zucchini, and reducing the amount of liquid does not seem to help completely. It will remain spongey on the inside, like a bread pudding. (It ain’t a bad thing!)
Every time I use mango in oatmeal, I get upset with myself for not doing it more often. IT IS SO GOOD. I know I flip-flop on this often, but I think mango might be my favorite fruit. *drools*

What you'll need:
- 1/4 cup milk of choice, or mango juice
- 1/3 cup diced mango
- 1/2 cup rolled (old-fashioned) oats
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- pinch of salt
- 1-2 tbsp semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips
How to make it:
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a single-serving ramekin with nonstick spray.
- In a medium mixing bowl, add milk and diced mango. Semi-mash the diced mango with a fork.
- Add oats, baking powder, and salt. Mix until combined, mashing mango more if desired.
- Stir in chocolate chips.
- Pour into baking pan (top with more chocolate chips if desired) and bake for 20-25 minutes.
Just an FYI:
Ingredients (other than chocolate chips) can be blended together in a food processor if desired. Stir chocolate chips into the batter and then bake in ramekin as usual.
