Equipment

  • Mixing bowl
  • High speed blender or food processor
  • Oven-safe ramekin

Ingredients

  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • 1 Tbs unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • ½ cup almond milk
  • ¼ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • ¼ tsp vanilla
  • 2 Tbs Erythritol
  • 2 Tbs sugar free dark chocolate chips (I used these)
  • 1 Tbs (or 1 large) low carb marshmallow (I use these, but any brand works)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 F
  • Stir together dry ingredients (except chocolate chips and marshmallows). Add in liquid ingredients and blend together in a high speed blender or food processor.
  • Pour ⅔ of the mixture into an oven-safe ramekin.
  • Add 1 Tbs of chocolate chips and marshmallow into center, then cover by pouring remaining mixture over top.
  • Sprinkle remaining chocolate chips on top.
  • Bake for 25 minutes (optional: microwave for 2 minutes).
  • Serve warm. Middle should be gooey like a lava cake smoke when you dig in!

Notes

  • Servings: 
This recipe makes one serving, but it can easily be doubled, tripled, quadrupled, or more for meal prep for your week, or to share with the entire family.
  • Storage: 
This recipe tastes best fresh, but the baked oats can also be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to a week, or frozen for up to 3 months to save for later. Just be sure to heat up your baked oats in a microwave when you’re ready to dig in.
  • Topping ideas: 
You can top your serving of baked oats with more sugar free dark chocolate chips, peanut butter, your favorite nuts, or a sprinkle of cinnamon.
  • Substitutions:
Almond milk: Any type of unsweetened milk, like soy, will work in this no sugar added recipe.
Erythritol: To keep the sugar low, you can also try using another type of sugar substitute in this recipe.
Unsweetened cocoa powder: a low-sugar chocolate protein powder may also work well if you are interested in adding in some extra protein.
