ingredients in healthy brownie baked oats
- banana: a mashed banana adds moisture and a bit of natural sweetness! The taste is barely noticeable, but if you can't stand it, applesauce will also work instead.
- oil: I know most baked oat recipes don't have oil in them, but it makes such a difference, especially in a brownie recipe! It adds moisture and richness, as well as some omega-3 fatty acids if you use an oil like avocado or olive oil.
- cane sugar: this is essential for sweetness and texture. You can use any other granulated sweetener, like coconut or regular white sugar, but it is important not to use a liquid sweetener.
- nut butter: I don't usually put nut butter in baked oats, but it really helps for the rich brownie-like texture. I used almond butter, but pretty much any others will work here.
- oat milk: just to loosen up the batter a bit. You can use any other nondairy milk as well.
- oat flour: an essential for baked oats! You can use a store-bought one, which is usually more fine in texture, but it's really easy to make at home by just blending rolled oats.
- cocoa powder: to add the chocolate flavor! This recipe uses regular unsweetened cocoa powder, not dutch-processed.
how to make brownie baked oats
This has to be one of the easiest and most straight-forward recipes I've ever posted. It's as simple as this:
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Mash the banana and mix in the rest of the ingredients.
- Bake for about 7 minutes.
note: baking for only 7 minutes will result in a slightly underbaked, fudgy texture. You can cook it a little longer if you like more of a cakey texture.
