Cookie Dough Baked Oatmeal - baked in the oven until it's warm and gooey, with melty chocolate chips - @choccoveredkt - tasted like a Mounds bar for breakfast!!!

Coconut Cookie Dough Baked Oatmeal

(serves 1)

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • stevia or sugar of choice
  • 1/4 cup applesauce or banana
  • optional 4 drops coconut extract
  • 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup milk of choice or canned coconut milk
  • 1-2 tbsp pre-melted coconut butter (Coconut-Free Version)
  • optional handful chocolate chips, plus extras for the top

Baked Cookie Dough Oatmeal: Preheat oven to 380 degrees. Combine dry ingredients, then mix in wet. Pour into a small baking pan, loaf pan, or 1-cup ramekin (or, for mini boatmeal cakes, two 1/2-cup ramekins). Cook for 20 minutes or more, until it’s firm. Finally, set your oven to “high broil” for 5 more minutes – or simply just bake longer, but broiling gives it a nice crust. Don’t forget to spray your ramekins first if you want your cakes to pop out.

  3. Rebecca says:

    Beautiful and tasty looking oatmeal. I sense a new breakfast in the near future. This morning I had a vegan pumpkin cranberry scone and part of a banana (the part not brown) with some almond butter

  4. erin says:

    yummmm I made mine in the microwave for 2 and a half minutes, worked out great!

  5. I enjoyed this wonderfully delicious dish yesterday! MMMM! Thanks for sharing all your amazing ideas.

    I’m not sure how you manage to keep up with all your comments, but I have one more for you. You have an award waiting for you at my blog…

    1. Awww thank you SO much! I am honored! 🙂

    I am fairly new at being Gluten and Dairy free (almost 8 weeks!). I didn’t have any coconut butter (didn’t know it existed!) so I added coconut oil. This was awesome. I just finished it now. Next time I think I will add some shredded coconut too. Thank you so much for sharing your recipes. I am having fun searching your site.

  7. Oh my gosh. I physically will be unable to eat anything other than this for breakfast for the next week. Thank you so much. 🙂 This looks so good!!! And the photography on your blog is always amazing.

  8. Sonya says:

    Just made this today. LOVE IT! Thank you!

  9. Kathy says:

    I had quinoa pancakes~!

  10. That looks pretty ridiculous…..

    (tommorows breakfast ;))

  11. Jenny D says:

    I can not believe how amazingly good this is!! And soo filling! I love oatmeal and have tried other “mounds-like” recipes which was basically shredded coconut w/ some choco chips that were ok…but didn’t really have you running for seconds. If I didn’t feel so stuffed, I would def run for seconds of this!! Well done, Lady!

  12. Coconut butter! I’d be using it for eating plain out of the package. 🙂

    I think I’d like to make some cookies with it too – peanut butter coconut maybe? Mmm

  13. Maya says:

    I will either eat it plain or stir into hot oatmeal! Mmmmm

  14. Jade says:

    Mmm..cashew and walnut and pecan and coconut butter…
    I don’t think they would last long enough for me to eat them with anything!

  15. abbey says:

    I would use it for this recipe it looks soo yummy!

  16. abbey says:

    I already like you on fb!

  17. Becky Przy says:

    I would use them by making banana coconut butter or pumpkin coconut butter and smear them on various single lady cupcakes;-)

  18. Katrina says:

    When I see coconut I think of macaroons. Therfore I think I would make them using this and chocolate! Oh and of course use ALL of these in hot oats.

  19. Lisa Wilder says:

    I think I would use these butters on just about everything! Yum!
