Lava Cake Oatmeal

Another dessert for breakfast. In fact, I could post this just as easily as a dessert. I like oatmeal, I like chocolate, I like cake, I like lava cake. This will do. I got the original recipe from Happy Herbivore Meal Mentor, but I've modified it to be even more chocolatey! 

⅓ cup dry rolled oats 
2 tbsp flour 
1 tbsp cocoa powder 
¼ tsp baking powder 
pinch salt
⅓ cup (2.5-oz) chocolate soy or almond milk 
1 tbsp pure maple syrup  
½ tsp vanilla extract 
1 tbsp chocolate chips or 1 square of chocolate

  1. Preheat oven to 350F and set aside a small ramekin. 
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine oats, flour, cocoa, baking powder, and pinch of salt. 
  3. Stir in milk, maple syrup, and vanilla. 
  4. Mix well and transfer half to the ramekin. 
  5. Place the chocolate chips or chocolate square on top, in the center, so that no part of it is touching the sides. 
  6. Pour the rest of the oatmeal over chocolate, using your fingers to press down lightly and spread the mixture. 
  7. Bake 15-20 minutes, or until the top is slightly firm and dry. 
  8. Let cool a few minutes, but serve warm.
  • Make less chocolatey by using plain/vanilla soy or almond milk. Per serving with plain/vanilla milk:  269 calories, 7.1g fat, 46.4g carbs, 6.8g fiber, 12.5g sugars, 7.8g protein
  • Top with yogurt for an icing. 
  • Made again, and an additional photo!
