The other day I was swiping through a lot of reels and TikToks and saw this viral brownie baked oatmeal recipe that sounds like my breakfast dream come true. No, you haven’t slept yet. This is breakfast and your dreams are reality! Yay!
I saw it – the recipe looked great and had a lot of fellow believers.Can I get an AMEN?!!
But here’s the thing — I’m not a big fan of vegan baked goods. … But baked goods are my love language, and anything baked without eggs just falls flat… (literally).
So I decided to try making this brownie baked oatmeal with eggs and milk. Of course, if you want vegan recipes, you can Google them.
But also, I’ve embarked on a journey to add protein to my diet. So I try to pack an extra punch of macronutrient protein into my recipes.
Adding more protein can feel like a full-time job. I literally have to think about getting protein all day long. One is to make sure breakfast is packed. That’s why I feel like I can reach my goals by the end of the day without having to chug a five-quart protein shake at a time.
My brownie oatmeal bake only requires a handful of simple ingredients. I start with most of the dry ingredients — whole oats, flaxseed, baking soda, salt, cocoa powder, collagen peptide protein powder (I use Naked Nutrition) Whisk until all the oats are covered in chocolate.
Then, in another bowl, whisk together the moist ingredients of milk, eggs, vanilla extract, and almond butter or peanut butter (adding good, healthy fats).
Then comes the brownie! I also added special dark cocoa (which is unsweetened like regular cocoa and very dark and delicious) and special dark chocolate chips.yum.
Once the oatmeal brownie batter is mixed, all that’s left to do is bake. — A surprisingly simple breakfast filled with intense chocolate flavor. A great way to prepare meals. Have healthy breakfast options for busy weekday mornings, with the option to heat or eat at room temperature.
Next time you’re looking for an easy, healthy, and delicious breakfast recipe, consider relying on this simple recipe!
