Chocolate Oatmeal Bake

This Chocolate Oatmeal Bake is pure comfort food, a heavenly combo of nourishing ingredients and chocolate decadence.
Servings: 9 squares
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 55 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour


  • 2 ripe bananas
  • ¾ cup plain Greek yogurt, nonfat or low-fat
  • 2 cups almond milk, or any milk of choice
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • cup maple syrup or honey
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Optional toppings: vanilla yogurt, aerated whipped topping, toasted nuts, and/or additional choc chips or shavings


  • Preheat oven to 375℉.
  • Liberally mist a 9- × 13-inch casserole dish with oil spray.
  • Add bananas and mash. Add Greek yogurt, milk, vanilla, maple syrup (or honey) and eggs (you can crack eggs right into casserole dish but be sure to whip them with a fork before mixing into the entire wet batter).
  • Mix and mash all wet ingredients together until it’s as smooth as possible; you will most likely still have lumps throughout—that’s fine.
  • Add oats, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt, and mix until well combined (ensuring dry cocoa powder is completely incorporated into batter). Mix in chocolate chips. Add optional extra chips over the top. Bake about 50 minutes.
  • Slice into 9 squares and serve with optional toppings.
