This easy one bowl chocolate baked oatmeal with peanut butter is great for the whole family.  It's sweetened with maple syrup, applesauce, and a sprinkle of chocolate chips.


  • 2 cups (190 g) old fashioned oats
  • 1/3 cup (30 g) Dutch-processed cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons (13 g) ground flaxseed
  • ¾ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1  2/3 cups (394 ml) dairy-free milk
  • 1/2 cup (123 g) unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/3 cup (79 ml) maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons (46 g) peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup (40 g) vegan chocolate chip


  1. Preheat the oven to 35o F (180 C).
  2. Mix the rolled oats, cocoa powder, ground flax seed, baking powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Then mix in the dairy-free milk, applesauce, maple syrup, peanut butter, and vanilla.
  4. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  5. Pour the mixture into an 8x8 glass baking dish and evenly spread the mixture out.
  6. Bake for 33-37 minutes or until the middle is almost set and the edges have firmed up.
  7. Let the baked oats cool for 10 minutes before serving.
  8. They're soft right out of the oven but will firm up as it cools.


Use rolled oats, not steel-cut or quick-cooking variations.

Be sure to use ground flax seed, not whole.

Place the uncooked mixture promptly into a preheated oven before the oats start to soak up the dairy-free milk.

If you don’t use a glass baking dish, then lightly grease a baking tray.
