Chocolate Chip Banana Baked Oatmeal Recipe

It’s no surprise that I’m a BIG fan of baked oatmeal recipes! My blueberry banana baked oatmeal is a weekend ritual in our household. Also, I frequently make my baked apple oatmeal cups for snacks on the run.

However, I thought it time to create another flavour for you; cue this Chocolate Chip Banana Baked Oatmeal.

Well friend, this recipe was a HUGE hit! My husband absolutely loved it and we’ve made it three times in just one week! I’ve also shared the recipe with a few of my neighbours and their kids adored it.

How to make this baked oatmeal

It’s so easy to make this baked oatmeal recipe. In fact, I encourage you to get your kids involved because it’s so easy and fun to make.

First, we’ll add all of our dry ingredients to a rectangle 8×11 inch baking dish.

Next, add the wet ingredients and whisk everything together with a fork to combine. (See image 1 below).

Sprinkle with chocolate chips and bake in the oven at 375F/190C for 25 to 30 minutes. It’s optional to drizzle with a bit of peanut butter when finished. Let cool for 10 minutes, slice and serve!

I told you it was dead easy to make! Literally, anyone can do it. Which is why I have given it my Newbie Cook stamp of approval.

What type of oats to use

I’m often asked what type of oats to use in my recipes. There are so many different types of oats, and it can be confusing to know which variety you need. 

For this recipe, and in most of my recipes, I’ve used rolled oats.

Rolled oats are very popular and versatile. They have a chewy, soft texture, and a creamy consistency when cooked. 

My oats brand of choice is One Degree Organic Foods, Sprouted Rolled Oats. They bake beautifully in this recipe!

I love supporting One Degree Organic Foods because of their 100% transparency in production process from their farm to your table. You can even scan the QR code on each package to find out about the farmers who made your oats! Like, how cool is that?

One Degree Organic Foods believes in sustainable farming practices and 100% organic ingredients. All-in-all, I love the initiative of this company for creating oats that taste good, and that are good for you, the farmer, and the planet.

As mentioned above, One Degree Organic Foods have sponsored this blog post. I only work with companies that I know and love.

Are chocolate chips vegan?

If you’re vegan then keep in mind that not all chocolate is vegan. So, you’ll want to check the ingredient list when purchasing chocolate chips.

Most chocolate that’s 70% dark or higher is what I like to call “accidentally vegan,” especially if it’s a quality brand as they’re using more pure ingredients. The same goes for semi-sweet chocolate chips. Check out this article from Spruce Eats to know; is your chocolate vegan? and what brands you can find at your local grocery store.

Storage and reheating tips

This recipe will keep for up to 5 days. Store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator.

Alternatively, you can cover your baking dish with some plastic wrap or reusable wrap and place directly in the fridge.

Be sure that the banana baked oatmeal has cooled completely before storing.

To re-heat, microwave in 30 second increments for 1 to 2 minutes. But also, this recipe is really delicious cold!

Can you freeze chocolate chip banana baked oatmeal?

To reheat, pop in the microwave at 30 second intervals for 1 to 2 minutes, or until desired temperature.

Or, you can freeze the entire bake (uncut). To reheat, cover the top with tinfoil and pop in the oven at 350F for 20 to 25 minutes.
