Ingredients

  • 3 cups (240 g) old fashioned oats
  • 2 scoops (60 g) vanilla protein powder
  • 1 tsp (4 g) baking powder
  • 1 lb (450 g) frozen cherries
  • 1 tbsp (15 g) sugar
  • 2 tbsp (42 g) maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp (14 g) butter
  • 10 tbsp (150 g) liquid egg whites or 2 eggs
  • 2 cups (480 g) milk
  • 2 tbsp (28 g) dark chocolate chips

For the Chocolate Drizzle

  • 1 tbsp (14 g) dark chocolate chips
  • 1 tbsp (15 g) milk

Instructions

For the Baked Oatmeal

  • Preheat your oven to 375°F.
  • If your cherries are whole, cut them into halves or quarters. Sprinkle 1 tbsp of sugar over the top of the cherries and allow them to macerate.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the oats, protein powder, and baking powder.
  • Add in the egg whites, milk, syrup, 1 tbsp of melted butter, 2 tbsp of the chocolate chips, and the cherries. If you get the big dark chocolate chips you should cut them up a bit so you get more coverage.
  • Spray a 13"x9" pan with oil and add the oat mixture.
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes.

For the Chocolate Drizzle

  • Melt 1 tbsp of the dark chocolate chips and 1 tsp or so of milk in the microwave for few seconds until they melt. Stir to combine and continue to thin with milk until you get a consistency that will allow you to pipe over the top.
  • Add the chocolate to a small ziplock bag and cut a small hole in the corner. Pipe the chocolate over the top of the baked oatmeal.

Plating

  • This recipe makes 6 servings. Cut the oatmeal into 6 equal pieces.

    Thanks josh for such an easy recipe. Ideal for breakfast or snacks now I’m on a bulk and often need 300kcal to meet macros.
    Can these be frozen for snack city?

    1. Josh Cortis

      I have never tried to freeze them so i’m not certain, but probably

    Do you know about how long will these keep for in the fridge?

    1. Josh Cortis

      I keep my no longer than 5 days but they will still be safe to eat for 6 or 7

  4. Kim

    What kind of milk did you use? Counting cals and would like to swap out for almond milk for less calories

    Huge fan of the baked oatmeals, but with this one I’ve been having trouble getting it to hold structure when eating the individual portions. Don’t have this problem with the Apple Pie one. I’ve been using 2 whole eggs instead of the whites, same as the apple pie one. There a change I can make to prevent it from crumbling?

    1. Josh Cortis

      It’s possible that your cherries are too watery. It may help to either use less or cut them, allow them to macerate in sugar, and then drain away any of the liquid

  6. Jim

    Thanks, this was indeed the problem. Removed ~1/2 of the liquid and had a much better outcome.

    I’ve been making these once every two weeks for about two months. I’ve been freezing all of them, and they turn out good for me.
