Chocolate Oatmeal Dish

     Another recipe, :) A chocolate oatmeal sort of dish, though someone told me it tasted rather like chocolate cake! Perfect! :D :) I think it's a scrumptious snack, either way.

     Ingredient List: oatmeal, oatmeal flour, cocoa powder, coconut milk, honey, coconut oil, vanilla, baking powder, salt, dark chocolate
     Use any flour you wish, but I just ground some oatmeal into flour, because I didn't have any other gluten-free flours handy at the moment.
      Really yummy. I would eat oatmeal any day if I could fix it like this every time! *grins* (I'm not a fan of oatmeal otherwise!)
Chocolate Oatmeal

  • 1/3 cup rolled oats 
  • 2 T. oatmeal flour
  • 1 T. cocoa powder
  • 1/4 t. baking powder
  • Sprinkle of salt
  • 1/3 cup coconut milk
  • 1 T. honey
  • 1/2 t. vanilla
  • 1 t. coconut oil, melted
  • 1-2 T. dark chocolate, chopped

Mix first five ingredients together. Add the rest, leaving out only the chocolate chunks, to be stirred in last. Pour into a greased, oven-safe bowl of some type, and bake for 12-17 minutes at 325 degrees.
     Once again, a savory snack. Yay for chocolate! I seem to crave it all the time, so these recipes help a lot! :) :)
     Oh, the original recipe is found on Running with Spoons, a neat blog that I've found multiple, delicious-looking recipes from. I can't wait to try them all out!
     Happy baking, all! :)


  1. Oh, wow, I'll have to file this one away for those days when I just want something warm and chocolatey and I know I should *not* cave in and bake that brownie mix hiding in my cabinet. (also, one of these days I'll actually try one of your delicious-looking recipes and let you know what I think!) :)

    P.S. I discovered this recipe today and thought of you (it's delicious, I actually tried it already):

    1. Absolutely, Serena! I think this recipe is great for those days! :) And really quick to make too.

      Yes, do! I would love to know what others think!

      Ooh, those sound good! Thanks for the link! I will have to try them for sure! :)

  2. The boys and I tried this chocolate oatmeal for our afternoon snack. Yumm!!! I used unsweetened bakers chocolate since I didn't know for sure what to use and I simply don't like really sweet food. We all thought it was quite good and the sweetness was right in the middle so all smiled as we ate it:) It is kind of a cozy dish to eat on a drizzly, rainy day. Good recipe.. thanks for sharing. hugs, Marla

    1. Aw, perfect! Your welcome, I'm so glad you guys liked it!! It does have just the right tinge of sweetness. I used 85% cocoa dark chocolate... so perhaps it was pretty close?

      Yes, it is kind of a cozy dish! Warm and chocolate-y.

      Thanks, it's good to know that these recipes are being used and enjoyed! :-) *Hugs back*!
