Description

These Chocolate Lava Baked Oatmeal Cakes are a rich, chocolate-y breakfast that is secretly healthy and made with whole food ingredients! This cake is both gluten-free and vegan.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup oat flour
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 c coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 oz dark chocolate (divided)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and coat 4 ramekins with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together the oats, oat flour, cocoa powder, chia seeds, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In another bowl, whisk together the coconut milk, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Add this into the dry ingredients and stir to combine. Set aside.
  4. Using the microwave or a double boiler, gently melt 2 ounces of the chocolate. Add the melted chocolate into the batter and stir to combine.
  5. Take the remaining chocolate and cut it into 4 even pieces. (You can also combine smaller pieces into 4 even piles.) Stuff the chocolate into the center of the cakes, and use a spoon to cover them with batter.
  6. Place the ramekins on a baking sheet and bake in the oven for 25 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes and serve.

Notes

This recipe can also be made ahead of time and baked the morning of. Follow the instructions through step 5 and then place the unbaked cakes into the fridge covered overnight. The next morning preheat the oven and bake the cakes.
