Double Chocolate Baked Oatmeal

Today I have another baked oatmeal recipe for you. This one is a special treat type of baked oatmeal though. This is a baked oatmeal that is perfect for the holidays, because it contains chocolate.

And during the holidays you can get by with feeding your kids chocolate for breakfast, right?! Just look at it this way, it is a sure way to get your kids to eat oatmeal.

  1. My 14yo daughter is the baked oatmeal maker in this house. She can’t wait to try to make this version!

  2. Sounds good. I have some chocolate milk in the fridge that we need to get through, I think tomorrow morning I am going to try banana baked oatmeal made with chocolate milk 🙂

  3. I think we will have this Christmas morning.

  4. I made this last night, and it is delicious. Thank you!

  5. this sounds amazing, so excited to try it in the morning

  6. Ok Lynn, this might be my family’s new Christmas tradition!! We LOVE baked oatmeal and normally I just make a regular recipe and the kids beg me to put in chocolate chips, which I usually do if I have them on hand. But this was GREAT!!! I prepared it on Christmas Eve, then put it in the oven while we opened gifts and then it was ready. Oh and I didn’t have cream cheese on hand so I subbed plain yogurt and it was just fine. Thanks again and keep those recipes coming!!!

  7. I am so glad that your family liked it. Thank you for letting me know and I hope you all had a great Christmas!

  8. Due to dairy allergies in our family we can’t do the cream cheese. Do you have a good substitute?

  9. Thanks to you I am a baked oatmeal addict! It is one of my favorite comfort foods now. Your recipes encourage me to play around with the flavors & ingredients that I have on hand. I made this recipe as you have it here for Christmas & it was a big hit. I’m making it today w/peanut butter added. I will probably eat the whole pan by myself! (Just not all at once!)

  10. Made this last night for this morning’s breakfast. I didn’t add the chocolate chips and didn’t have cream cheese, so I used yogurt instead. Everyone liked it–I know they would have loved it more with the chocolate chips. I will try it with the chips next time. Thanks for the recipe.

  11. Very delicious! I didn’t use the cream cheese because I had a brain blockage and forgot to let it sit out to soften. 🙂 Still, very yummy!

    • I am glad you enjoyed it! I have left out the cream cheese before also when I did not have any and it does work find. Cream cheese makes it richer and a little creamier, but it works fine without it. Thanks for letting me know you enjoyed it.

  12. This looks wonderful. I was thinking of making it and dividing the recipe into two pans, so I can give one pan to a friend to bake on her birthday morning coming up, and keep the other for our kids to try. I’m fairly certain I’ll have to reduce the baking time though. Has anybody come up with a baking time for 2 – 8X8 pans? Thanks in advance ………….

    • I would reduce that baking time by five minutes or so. 2 8×8 pans will be a little thinner, but not much so I don’t think you would have to cut back on the time a lot. I hope you enjoy it!

  13. Excellent! I’m sure we’re all going to love it!! Thanks so much ………….

  14. I made this tonight as part of our “breakfast for dinner,” using dark cocoa and Ghirardelli semi-sweet chips. It was really good! My husband ate it as his dessert. Thanks for a great recipe!
