  • Author: Sweet Simple Vegan
  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: About 4 servings
  • Diet: Vegan


Take your breakfast to the next level with this vegan and gluten-free chocolate chip baked oatmeal. It is easy to make, requires simple ingredients, and absolutely delicious!


  • 1 cup (100g) gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 tablespoon flaxseed meal (or chia seeds)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup (or liquid sweetener of choice)
  • 3 tablespoons nut or seed butter
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips* (see notes)

Equipment and Additional Ingredients

  • High speed blender
  • Small baking dish (our was 7 x 9.5-inches)
  • Oil, for greasing the dish


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and adjust the rack to the middle of the oven if it is not already there. Lightly grease a small baking dish and set it aside.
  2. To a high-speed blender, add in the rolled oats and process the oats until they become fine oat flour.
  3. Add in all the remaining ingredients except for the chocolate chips and blend until smooth.
  4. Add all but about 1 tablespoon of the chocolate chips and mix it by hand using a spoon.
  5. Transfer the batter into the prepared baking dish, being sure it is spread out evenly. Sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips over the top.
  6. Bake at 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean, and it is golden brown.
  7. Allow the dish to cool for about 5 minutes before serving, and then dig in! 


  • This recipe was adapted from Eating Bird Food.
  • If you would like to decrease the sweetness of this dish, we recommended decreasing the amount of chocolate chips. You can even opt to not mix any in and just sprinkle a handful on top instead.

    Made this for breakfast and it’s amazing! So versatile, I added blueberries this time. I usually make oat pancakes in the same manner but this “breakfast oat cake,” is so yummy. It’s so easy that you could whip it up for a weekday breakfast. It’s toddler approved, husband approved, baby approved and mommy approved 🙂

  2. Jess C. says:

    So delicious and easy! Would even be a nice dessert with ice cream – but is also a really good excuse to eat chocolate for breakfast! Will definitely be making again.

  3. Max says:

    So easy and yummy. I bet it could be one serving if you’re hungry.

  4. Maraia says:

    My husband and I just made this for breakfast and loved it! We’ve tried baked oatmeal before, but we both preferred the cake-like texture from the ground oats here. We used mixed berries instead of chocolate chips, and it tasted like peanut butter and jelly cake.

  5. Mckenna says:

    Delicious! Perfect sweet and healthy breakfast.

  7. N says:

    Fast, easy, healthy, and delicious 😋. Love this type of recipes.

  8. Lydia says:

    My kids thought this was cake, so I’m happy with it!

  9. Rachel says:

    I doubled this recipe and baked it for 35 min in an 8×8 pan. It came out absolutely beautiful. I used dark chocolate chips and threw in some walnuts. I’ll definitely be making this again and again!

  10. Tara says:

    This recipe is delightful. We make it every week for meal prep. Kids think I’ve gone mad giving them cake for breakfast, really upped my reputation around here. We double the recipe and bake it in a 9 x 13” for our family of 6. I’m happy I don’t have to make pancakes. Thanks a bunch.

  11. SJ says:

    Like having yummy cake for breakfast! Be warned though that if you use sunbutter, your “cake” will be greenish due to the reaction between sunflower seed and baking soda. 🙂

  12. Laura WD says:

    I make this recipe a lot. It is absolutely wonderful. I do swap out frozen wild blueberries for the chocolate chips and it is amazing
