Mango Chocolate Chip Baked Oatmeal

Earlier this month, I posted a baked oatmeal. Then, I posted another. In less than a month, I am now posting another. You’re welcome.

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*

Mango Chocolate Chip Baked Oatmeal

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Yield: serves 1

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:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a single-serving ramekin with nonstick spray.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, add milk and diced mango. Semi-mash the diced mango with a fork.
  3. Add oats, baking powder, and salt. Mix until combined, mashing mango more if desired.
  4. Stir in chocolate chips.
  5. 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.

Product Review: Grainful Savory Oatmeal

For those of you who love savory oatmeal, I have an amazing product for you to try. And for those of you who don’t think you like savory oatmeal, I have an amazing product to change your mind. And for those of you who are afraid to try savory oatmeal, I have an amazing product to help you face your fears.

Grainful approached me to review their products–savory oatmeal packets and frozen meal kits–and I was immediately intrigued. It’s the first time I’ve seen packaged savory oats, and there was a ton of vegan options. Plus, the flavor options were enticing–Italian and Indian and Southern and more! Continue reading


Cheater Banana Oatmeal Pancakes for One

My boyfriend used to live in Seattle. I used to have to fly six hours across the country to see him. It sucked.

Thankfully, that’s not the case anymore. But while he was there, I would often cook breakfast for us–it is my specialty, after all. While he liked my banana oatmeal just fine, he (for some strange reason) wanted me to switch it up occasionally. (I know, I don’t understand that, either.)

I have found that–in terms of breakfast–pancakes are a great common ground for vegans and omnivores. They are easy to veganize, and often in a way that the omnivore can’t tell, as long as you are not simultaneously healthifying them. Continue reading

Turmeric Coconut PB2

I made a turmeric recipe. I’ve resisted because I don’t want to be cliche and do what everyone else is doing (which is posting a million turmeric recipes), but at the end of the day, I do like turmeric. So here we are.

This PB2 has a tiny amount of coconut oil in it. This has multiple benefits, the main two being a richer texture and a smooth, coconut flavor. That rich texture and flavor work well with the earthy turmeric, if I do say so myself. You could use coconut butter, technically, but I rarely have that on hand (but I always have coconut oil as it is my preferred cooking oil).  Continue reading


Chocolate Banana Swirl Oatmeal

When I came up with the idea for this Saturday’s “This Week in Oatmeal” theme (which is Black & White), I instinctively starting dreaming up my own ideas. Since I happened to be out of the obvious black and white toppings (Oreos, white chocolate chips, coconut butter), this recipe seemed like my best option.

Brownie Baked Oatmeal – Big Batch!

I always promise people to publish more “big batch” versions of baked oatmeal, but I rarely get around to it. Well, I got around to it.

The benefit of an entire 8×8 pan of Brownie Baked Oatmeal is that it is a definite crowd-pleaser. Who wouldn’t want to eat oatmeal if it tasted like a brownie? If you find yourself needing to make breakfast for a group of friends or your family, this one is a safe bet. Continue reading


Blood Orange and Coconut Baked Oatmeal

Forgive me for my spotty posting this year. (That sounds pretty dramatic considering it’s only the second week of the year.) The constant lack of sunshine in NYC (on the days I’m home) have been really killing my vibe. As I’ve said before, I need natural light to photograph my recipes, so a string of cloudy days results in a tragic lack of posts.

This week, I’m ready to attack! First up for your consumption (literally) is this simple and citrusy baked oatmeal. Yes, I’ve been slacking in the baked oatmeal department for a year or two–but here’s a new one! Continue reading
