Baked Banana & Dark Chocolate Oatmeal Recipe

A bowl of oatmeal is a classic breakfast, thanks to its high fiber, vitamin and mineral content which help to energize your day and keep you fueled until lunch time.

Our baked banana and dark chocolate oatmeal recipe is a step up from your ordinary bowl of oats, both in flavor and nutrition. We’ve baked the oats with banana and chocolate for a nutritious and delicious combination. Bananas are high in fiber and potassium, an essential mineral that aids heart health, while dark chocolate is rich in antioxidants. We’ve then topped with Greek yogurt and honey for a dessert-like finish that’s higher in protein than your standard bowl of oats.

This baked banana and dark chocolate oatmeal is quick and easy to make, taking just 5 minutes to prepare before it can be left to bake away in the oven for 25 minutes.

It even makes for a convenient breakfast meal prep, just leave your leftovers to cool in the fridge in readiness for the next morning!
