How to make a single serving chocolate cheesecake baked oatmeal at home, for a healthy breakfast that tastes like dessert!

Chocolate Brownie Baked Oatmeal Recipe

Say hello to breakfast.

Or is it dessert? Either way, can you think of a better reason to get out of bed in the morning than baked chocolate cheesecake brownie oatmeal?

As a chocoholic and a breakfast lover, this recipe has my name written all over it. And the chocolate oatmeal cake serves one person, so there’s no need to share.

It’s like a breakfast version of Vegan Chocolate Cake

If you want to frost your baked oatmeal, I’m writing out the quick recipe I used below.

Note that it makes a full batch of cream cheese frosting, so there will definitely be leftovers, which is a positive for sure!

Simply whip together 8 ounces of packaged or homemade cream cheese (vegan brands work too) with 4 ounces of butter or vegan butter, 2 cups of powdered sugar (unrefined if desired), and 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract.

The icing is also fantastic on Applesauce Cake or on Vegan Cinnamon Rolls

Do you have a go-to breakfast?

I like to change it up and often eat savory meals in the morning, like this Tofu Scramble. But I almost always have oatmeal at some point during the day.

Other breakfast foods I love and will happily eat any time of day or night include waffles, French toast, hot or cold cereal, Vegan Pancakes, crepes, fruit smoothies, muffins, cinnamon rolls, and donuts. In other words, all breakfast foods.

The following recipe was adapted from my Oatmeal Muffins and these Baked Oats.

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 tbsp pure maple syrup OR pinch uncut stevia
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp cream cheese or vegan cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup applesauce, yogurt, or mashed banana
  • 2 tbsp milk of choice
  • 1 tbsp oil, nut butter, or additional milk
  • 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • optional handful mini chocolate chips


  • Preheat the oven to 380 F, and grease a 1-cup ramekin or oven-safe bowl (or two 1/2-cup ramekins) very well. Stir all ingredients, then bake for 27 minutes. If desired, place on the top rack and broil 1 additional minute. If you wish to remove it from the ramekin, let cool completely first so that it will firm up and pop right out. Or just eat it straight from the bowl! The recipe can be made ahead of time, and it also freezes well.

    It’s morning right now where I live, and I was going through my mails when this recipe showed up in you newsletter. And i am so going to bake this as breakfast! I cannot wait. Sadly I don’t have cream cheese, but I’ll make it anyways.
    Thanks for your always so genius recipes!
    Have a nice day! ❤

    Hi, just made the oatmeal and it’s absolutely delicious! It tastes like a brownie. It’s the best baked oatmeal I’ve ever made. Thank you for the recipe. 🙂

    I’d just like to say that I’ve followed this blog for years and have always loved it.

    I remember when I was younger I used to eat Scotch Kisses from See’s Candies in the mall and would love to see your take on those.

    I wanted to know if you have considered trying an alfredo sauce with greek yogurt lately? I see lots of mac and cheeses made with it, but haven’t seen you visit alfredo since back in the day, and that one was a bit water for my taste.

    And I love making my own chocolate bars, and would love to see a copycat Heath Bar. Or really just an awesome toffee recipe.

    What do you think? =D

  7. Susan says

    Wow. This is the ONE. I’ve tried all your chochalate type boat meals and though they were good, this one is over the top GOOD.
    Thanks for keep raising the bar (chocolate).

  8. Jean Robinson says

    Bonjour Katie,
    Est-ce que vous avez pensé à une traduction (translate of your book) de votre livre? Nous aimons beaucoup vos recettes et nous nous demandons comment vous faites lever vos pains sans oeufs.
    Merci et à bientôt,
    Jean et Camille

    I would greatly appreciate having a larger quantity (8 or 12) recipe for these luscious bars. I’m not comfortable trying to convert it myself.
