7 Make-Ahead Oatmeal Recipes: Raspberry Chocolate Chip & More
Any time we can justify chocolate for breakfast, we know it's gonna be a good day...
Cook: 35 minutes
3 cups old-fashioned oats
5 packets no-calorie sweetener (like Truvia)
1 1/2 tbsp. chia seeds
2 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup (about 4 large) egg whites or fat-free liquid egg substitute
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup raspberries
3 tbsp. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8” X 8” baking pan with nonstick spray.
In a large bowl, combine oats, sweetener, chia seeds, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Mix well.
In a medium-large bowl, combine almond milk, applesauce, egg whites/substitute, and vanilla extract. Mix until uniform.
Add mixture in the medium-large bowl to the large bowl. Mix until uniform.
Gently fold in raspberries and 1 1/2 tbsp. chocolate chips.
Transfer mixture to the baking pan, and smooth out the surface.
Top with remaining 1 1/2 tbsp. chocolate chips, and lightly press to adhere.
Bake until top is light golden brown and entire dish is cooked through, about 35 minutes.
