Rocky Road Baked Oats

These Rocky Road Baked Oats are the perfect two serving lightened-up dessert. Oats and cocoa powder are blended up with a few other healthy ingredients and then baked up with chocolate, mini marshmallows and nuts for that classic rocky road feel.

Ingredients

Scale
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • ¼ cup smooth apple sauce
  • 2 tablespoons milk-of-choice
  • 1 egg
  • 2/3 cup rolled oat oats
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • Pinch salt
  • ⅓ cup chopped chocolate
  • ¼ cup mini marshmallows
  • 2 tablespoons chopped nuts (walnuts or pecans work well here)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF and lightly grease two 8-10 ounce oven-safe ramekins.
  2. Add maple syrup, apple sauce, milk, egg, oats, cocoa powder, baking soda, and a pinch of salt to a blender, in that order. Blend until smooth and creamy.
  3. Stir in the chopped chocolate, mini marshmallows and nuts until combined.
  4. Transfer the batter to the greased ramekins and top with additional marshmallows, chocolate and pecans on top, if desired.
  5. Bake on the center rack until the baked oats have puffed up and started to pull away from the edge of the ramekin and toothpick inserted comes out mostly clean, about 25-30 minutes.
  6. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Notes

You can double or triple the recipe and bake it in a larger container. You can double or triple all of the ingredients, except the baking soda. For a double or triple batch, use just 1-1/2 teaspoons of baking soda.

If you have any leftovers, the baked oats will keep covered at room temperature for about 3 days. You can eat it at room temperature or briefly heat it back up.
