Tips For Making Vegan Chocolate Baked Oatmeal
Don't Over Bake The Oats
The oats will dry out quick if left in the microwave for too long. Leaving the chocolate baked oats in the microwave for 2 minutes 30 seconds will cause the top layer of the oats to seem a little dry but the insides will be nice and creamy like porridge.
If you cook for just 2 minutes they will seem a little creamier all the way through.
How to Serve This Chocolate Oatmeal
I like to serve this recipe with melted chocolate and gluten free Digestive crumbs but you can also add things such as chopped nuts and melted vegan white chocolate.
Choose what is best for you.
Customisations & Substitutions
- Add protein to your oats. One way that you can do this is by replacing the cocoa powder with some vegan and gluten free chocolate protein powder.
- Change the flavour. I you don't like or can get hold of gluten free Digestives, I recommend sprinkling at little ground cinnamon onto the oats instead.
Frequently Asked Questions
They are very good for you. Oat flour is full of healthy nutrients and also contains plenty of protein fibre, making it a great breakfast choice.
How To Store This Oatmeal For Later
I recommend eating this recipe straight away but if you want to save it for another day, you can store it in the fridge for up to 3 days. Store inside an airtight container.
