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.

    This looks, and sounds amazing! 😀 will have to try this <3 Btw, what kind of chocolate chips do you use/have in this picture, looks so so good! 🙂

    Do you think this would be good pre-baked then just warmed in the microwave when ready to eat? I don’t cook during the week unless I have to. I make as much as possible on my days off for the following week.

    Hello, Katie,

    I am stopping by to let you know how this recipe turned out for me. It. Is. awesome. Seriously, I have never thought of baking oatmeal before! I stumbled upon your blog last week and I have been finding fun things to try. I also made my own coconut butter in my vitamin, which I now use in recipes! This oatmeal was great, too with the homage to chocolate chip cookies. I used super dark chocolate chips, applesauce (an apple and a couple TBSP of water in my vitamix), unsweetened almond milk, and I left out a sweetener altogether. And I don’t think it needed a sweetener. The chocolate chips and applesauce bring enough sweetness to it!

    Thanks Again, and I will now be testing out some more of your recipes!

    So if I wanted to make this and freeze it, do I just mix the stuff up a put it in the freezer or would I have to cook it before freezing? Was hoping I could mix it, freeze it, and the just cook it in the microwave when I wanted it… I just microwave it for two minutes now when I mix it up in the morning…tastes great and is quick.

    I made this and it was delicious! I didn’t actually bake it, but I cooked it in a bowl with 1 cup unsweetened soy milk for extra protein and loved it. I used 2 Tbsp coconut butter (would use just 1 next time, it was SO filling and I would prefer the texture with 1), and didn’t add sugar or stevia because the applecause made it sweet enough for my tastes. I also didn’t add salt or either of the extracts because I didn’t have them. I sprinkled on chocolate chips too. So this was a very satisfying bedtime snack that fully satisfied my craving for an oatmeal cookie. Thank you, Katie!

    Yumee! I quadrupled recipe (applesauce version) and baked in a pan. Only had coconut oil, so added 2 T total of that. Added raspberries, and 2 T flaked coconut. The small handful of Ghirardelli dark chocolate chips I added were WOW! Amazing!
