  • Honey: This is my sweetener of choice but you can use maple syrup (also to make vegan). 

Tips

The banana is what provides sweetness, moisture, and flavor. Use a ripe banana for a sweeter and more pronounced banana flavor. If you don't want to use a banana substitute with 1/4 cup of any kind of milk. 
Use a high powdered blender. This will ensure you get everything blended until smooth. If you want to have a bit more texture to the chocolate baked oats, don't puree the batter fully.
Grease the ramekin with nonstick cooking spray to prevent the batter from sticking.
If you want to make chocolate baked oats for more than 1 person you can double or triple the recipe. Use a larger ramekin or cake pan or divide the batter evenly amongst 8 oz ramekins.
Make sure your baking powder is fresh. This is the leavening agent that helps the batter rise in the oven and gives it an airy-like texture.
