Double Chocolate PB2

As I’ve said before, toppings are a fun way to add just a dab of indulgence to an otherwise nutritious bowl of oatmeal. Dessert-like toppings are the perfect solution when you want to treat yourself but also don’t want to have a stomachache the rest of the day.

This is an ultra-fudgy PB2 with bits of white chocolate chips mixed in throughout. It goes well with a number of oatmeal recipes (virtually any of them) and can be personalized with any of your favorite “chips,” whether it’s white chocolate like I used or something crazy like mint or peanut butter. You can find chocolate chips in so many flavors now!

German Chocolate Cake Batter Oatmeal

On my 23rd birthday, I showed you how to make this coconut-pecan butter, so it’s only fitting that I brought this rich, cozy topping back for my 27th birthday post, right?

Today’s recipe is really a stovetop version of my German Chocolate Cake Baked Oatmeal, which I made half a decade ago. It’s really just a chocolate oatmeal made memorable by the coconut-pecan topping. Since it’s a cake batter, it’s perfect for celebrating birthdays. 🙂

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.

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. (more…)

Pear Orange Fudge Oatmeal

Since Citrus Pear Oatmeal was a success, I decided I could give it another go, this time with chocolate. 😉

I’m currently relaxing at my family’s home in Minnesota, so I won’t make this post very long. But if you like Citrus Pear Oatmeal, or you like those orange chocolate thingies, this oatmeal will have a lot of flavors you will enjoy. And it’s easy, too! (more…)


Cocoa Candy Cane PB2

Looking for an ultra easy way to Christmas-ify your favorite oatmeal recipe? This topping needs half of a standard candy cane and can be whipped up in about two minutes!

The toughest part is just deciding what oatmeal to put it on top of. Not all flavors mesh with mint, after all! I put mine on top of glorious Thin Mints Oatmeal, but I could also see it atop Brownie Baked Oatmeal, Sweet Potato Fudge Oatmeal, or Mint Brownie Baked Oatmeal. (more…)
