Baked Banana Peanut Butter Fudgy Oatmeal

Posted on January 17, 2012

So the snow finally decided to show up on the wet coast {though hardly}. Time for comfort food? I think yes <3

I am looooving my new mini stoneware cocettes for baking!! So far I’ve only used them for {a lot of} oatmeal, but I like the texture it produces better, and so does Dallas. As opposed to the ramekins, these cocettes keep the oatmeal more moist rather than crispy. {If you’re curious, they are made by Le Creuset.} I based this recipe off of my peanut butter fudgy baked oatmeal, using 1/2 mashed ripe banana in place of the applesauce. Originally, the recipe was inspired by Katie’s baked oatmeals.

looooooooove!! <3

As for our workouts, Dallas & I went to the gym again today! I did an intense at-home weight & cardio workout yesterday and am still feeling it today, sooo I went light on the elliptical and that was it. My body hurts so good. Simple acts like sitting down that I normally so appreciate are momentarily quite painful. I think light yoga tomorrow for sure.

And now I have some almond mylk to make and a Psychology textbook to read. Sowwie for the short post, but I have some obligations to attend to! xox

From my kitchen to yours <3

Ingredients:
1/2 cup rolled oats
2 tsp cocoa powder
1/2 tsp stevia {or 1 tsp brown sugar}
1/8 tsp sea salt
1/2 ripe banana, peeled & mashed
1/4 cup almond mylk
1/4 cup applesauce
1 tsp peanut butter {use chunky!!}
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Directions:
1. In a small bowl, stir together first 4 ingredients until well-combined.
2. Mix in all remaining ingredients and stir well. Scoop into mini ramekin or mini bakeware.
3. Bake at 350-380 degrees for 20 mins.
4. Allow to cool for 2-3 mins. Enjoy warm.

peace, love, food <3

Char, xo

  1. This looks fantastic! I never have much time in the morning though – would it be ok do you think to make it the night before and reheat? Or is that taking it a little too far!

    • Thanks, Ali! I usually mix the dry ingredients together the night before, then dump the rest in in the morning and pop it into the toaster oven. I’m sure you could make the whole thing & re-heat it, but I would be careful about putting a cold dish from the fridge straight into the oven…I’m not sure if it would crack or not. You could always mix it all together in a bowl, cover, put in fridge. In the morning, scoop into a ramekin & bake it as soon as you wake up. Sounds like the best idea :)

    Mmmm, looks delish! We were given an entire le creuset set (which I sadly rarely use), I am going to go see if we have one of those adorable pots!

    Sounds like the bit of snow you guys got closed VIU today, enjoy your day off! We have 40cms of snow out here, Chris and I actually took our snowmobile out in the backfield (we live on a farm) last night!

    • haha, huuuuge dump came over night!! Yep, VIU is closed…so glad, because we live on a hill! I couldn’t imagine getting my car out of the driveway :/ Kinda stoked, though, because it’s been a week & a half since I’ve been home to make dinner. So we’re having dinner together tonight!

      You guys have a snowmobile?!?! Soooo jealous!! :D

  3. I LOVE the combo of warm bananas and chocolate. What a great little dish that I am putting on my must try list!

    … and I just realized I’m not following you on Twitter, well, I am now!

  4. This looks delicious Char!! Those pots are so cute, I don’t have anywhere to store them though – need to stop buying bakeware. :)

    Nom nom! I could use some oatmeal… it’s 27 degrees F. here with 10 inches of snow! And we lost power for a while, so with the power back on, I’m huuuuungreeeee!

    Could you make these in plain old ramekins (i.e. ones without) ?

  7. Danielle says:

    Tried this with just all banana, no applesauce. Still amazing.
