To make it a little healthier I’m using almond milk and coconut oil as opposed to most breakfast baked oatmeals that call for whole milk or butter. Basically any milk or butter will work in this recipe, but if you want it to be healthier, the coconut oil and/or almond milk are great choices.

With coconut oil instead of butter these tend to be more crumbly until they’ve been thoroughly chilled. Since this baked oatmeal is best hot though, serve this in bowls and don’t worry if they crumble a bit!

Our favorite way to serve this is cutting out a piece, putting it in a bowl, and pouring some milk over it all – divine!!The ultimate BEST EVER and easy baked oatmeal! Flavored to taste like an oatmeal chocolate-chip cookie! I chelseasmessyapron.comTo get a real oatmeal “chocolate-chip cookie” flavor, I use miniature chocolate chips. By using mini chips, they are spread throughout every single bite and you get a good bit of chocolate in every bite. Regular-sized chips will work, but we like miniature best!

And if you want to forgo the chips entirely, that is just fine too. You can also replace them with some fresh berries, raisins or craisins! Enjoy!The ultimate BEST EVER and easy baked oatmeal! Flavored to taste like an oatmeal chocolate-chip cookie! recipe from chelseasmessyapron.com

Ingredients

  • 1 (8 x 8 inch) baking pan
  • 1 and 1/2 cups (148g) old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup (100g) brown sugar lightly packed*
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon (more or less to taste)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon fine sea salt (or 1/2 teaspoon regular table salt)
  • 1/2 cup (128g) unsweetened almond milk or sub another milk
  • 1 extra large egg
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup (130g) miniature chocolate chips (dark, semi-sweet, or milk chocolate)
  • 1/4 cup (52g) melted coconut oil (or melted butter -- these are more crumbly with coconut oil and more sturdy with butter)

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8 x 8 baking pan with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, add together the oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt. Mix.
  • Add in the milk, eggs, melted coconut oil or butter, and vanilla extract. Gently stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Spread the mixture evenly in the prepared pan.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes. Remove and allow to slightly cool. Cut and serve warm in bowls (they don't really hold form as bars too well and are meant to be eaten in bowls). If desired, pour some milk over the bars in the bowl -- so good!

Recipe Notes

*If you want sweeter oatmeal bars, add up to 2 tablespoons additional brown sugar.

  1. These look so soft and delicious! Oatmeal chocolate chip is one of my very favorite cookies – so I know I would love these! Have a great weekend Chelsea!

  2. Ok seriously keep these breakfast recipes coming! I love eating dessert for breakfast, so if I can trick my brain into thinking I’m eating dessert because its so yummy, yet healthy at the same time?? Sold! I’ll never have to settle on a granola bar ever again!

  3. 5 stars
    Made this recipe this morning and I’ve got to say – WOW! Very good, but it is VERY rich! I even used almond milk…I can’t imagine using regular milk! Also, for my family, I think less chocolate chips and a little less brown sugar (which is surprising because we all have a major sweet tooth) BUT we will definitely make this again. Thank you for sharing!

  4. 5 stars
    This really is the most delicious recipe that I have found for baked oatmeal! It’s my go to.

    I love pumpkin chocolate chip things too. How could I make this into a pumpkin chocolate chip cookie baked oatmeal?

    1. Yay!! That makes my day to hear that 🙂 Thank you! I’m not completely sure how to recommend turning it into pumpkin without personally testing it, but I think you could replace the oil with pumpkin and then add a few teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice and maybe a teaspoon of cinnamon 🙂
