The ideal way to have dessert for breakfast! This baked oatmeal has the flavor of a rich, chocolaty brownie. You may just have some genuine brownies afterwards.
Today’s post will be short and sweet since I’m short on time and need to go cook a bunch of goodies.
I’ve never been a fan of oatmeal. It’s definitely a textural issue, and I’ve tried every combination of add-ins I could think of to make it taste better to me (apples with cinnamon, fresh fruit, nuts), but nothing worked.
I ultimately realized that if I simply made it more of a dessert, I’d probably have better results. And guess what? It worked!
Spoil yourself a little
If you want to cook something for Christmas morning that will make your family believe you’re treating them (and you could use that to your advantage, just saying), this is the recipe for you.
If you’re searching for a quick and simple breakfast that will make every day seem like Christmas morning, this is the recipe for you. This Brownie Batter Oatmeal tastes just like brownie batter, but it’s quicker and smaller in size.
As a result, having dessert for breakfast is entirely fine (if you ask me). The recipe is for one serving, so increase it by the number of people you want to serve.
My personal advice on making brownie batter oatmeal
- I prefer to leave mine a little underbaked so that it’s more like brownie batter than a completely cooked brownie, but you could definitely leave it in the oven a little longer if you want it firmer.
- Sprinkle with more chocolate chips. This is something I take for granted.
- When it comes to chocolate chips, utilize micro chocolate chips if possible. They melt a bit better in this shape and don’t leave as many large pieces of chocolate behind. Of course, if that’s your goal, go ahead and use the standard-sized chips!
