Step-By-Step Instructions

Begin by preheating your oven to create the ideal baking environment. Combine the raspberries, chia seeds, and maple syrup to form a jammy base. Mix oats, bananas, and other core ingredients in a blender for a smooth consistency. Layer the raspberry mix with the oats, top with chocolate chips, and bake until perfection is reached. Finish with a sprinkle of chocolate chips for that divine touch.

Ingredient Notes

  • Oats: Rolled oats are a great source of soluble fiber and can keep you full for hours.
  • Bananas: Use very ripe bananas for natural sweetness and creamy texture.
  • Chia Seeds: These tiny seeds pack in Omega-3s, fiber, and protein.
  • Cacao Powder: Rich in antioxidants and gives a deep chocolate flavor.

FAQ

  • Is this recipe gluten-free? Yes, use certified gluten-free oats if necessary.
  • Can I use other milk than soy milk? Yes, any nondairy milk can work, such as oat milk or unsweetened almond milk.

Variations and Tips

Servings 4

Ingredients

  • ½ cup fresh raspberries (you can use frozen and thawed if they are not in season for you)
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • cups rolled oats
  • 200 g very ripe bananas (2 small bananas)
  • 2 tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 2 Medjool dates (pitted)
  • 3 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp sea salt flakes
  • cups soy milk
  • 1 to 2 tbsp sweetener of choice (optional: the dates and banana lightly sweeten the dish, but if you like it sweeter, I recommend adding more sweetener such as maple syrup, sugar, or monk fruit to adjust to your liking)
  • 3 tbsp dark chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 °F fan-forced.
  • Place the raspberries in a shallow bowl and mash them using a fork. Add the chia seeds and maple syrup and mix well. Place in the fridge while you prepare the rest of the recipe, ideally for at least 10 minutes, to allow the chia to bloom.
  • To a blender, add the oats, bananas, ground flaxseed, dates, cacao powder, baking powder, salt, soy milk, and extra sweetener if using. Blend until smooth.
  • Transfer into 2 small oven-safe dishes (ours yield 300ml each, which we use for 2 servings). Scoop out the raspberry chia jam with a spoon and place it in the middle of the baked oats. Ensure it's covered by the chocolate mixture.
  • Top with chocolate chips, and bake for 30 minutes. Allow to cool down for 15 minutes, find someone to share it with, and enjoy!

Notes

The sweetness of these baked oats can vary greatly depending on how ripe the fruits are, the dates used (I recommend Medjool), cacao powder, and chocolate chips. If you know you like it sweet, I recommend adding the suggested extra sweetener, but if you forgot, you can always drizzle a little bit of maple syrup afterward. 🙂

  1. Hi! This looks delicious! What protein powder do you use?
    I just recently discovered your site and I made a dish last night that was a hit! We have been veg/ vegan for 20 years. Recently I found out I have Celiac so now I need to pay attention to the gluten! I love that you acknowledge the GF and that your recipes are also high protein! Thanks for sharing! Excited to make many more of your delicacies! 🫶🏻

    1. Hey Melissa, thanks so much for the kind words, means a lot!
      Sorry to hear about your Celiac diagnostic, I know it can be a bit overwhelming to navigate at the beginning! Hope our recipes can help you with that, most are GF, or can be easily adjusted 💚
      I’m currently using happy way (they gave me a discount code ‘happysarah’ for 10% off if you’d like to try it). When choosing a plant based protein powder, try to go for one with a blend of ingredients (a mix of either brown rice, soy, pea etc) to give you an optimised amino acid profil. Ensure there is 20 to 25g of protein serve, and as close as possible of 2mg of leucine per servings for optimal muscle growth.
