- 1 ripe banana (the spottier, the better!)
- 1 egg
- Nut milk (Cashew milk recommended, but any favorite will do)
- Salt (to taste)
- Baking soda
- Chocolate chips (for topping)
- Optional: sweetener of choice (honey, maple syrup, coconut sugar, or brown sugar)
- Preparing the Ingredients: Assemble all your ingredients. The ripe banana plays a crucial role in keeping the batter creamy, so ensure it’s spotty and ripe.
- Blending the Batter: In a blender, combine the oats, ripe banana, egg, nut milk, salt, and baking soda. Blend until the mixture is smooth and fully combined. For those craving extra sweetness, add a tablespoon of your chosen sweetener.
- Setting the Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
- Pouring the Batter: Take an oven-safe ramekin and pour the blended batter into it.
- Adding the Chocolate: Sprinkle the top with a generous amount of chocolate chips.
- Baking: Place the ramekin in the oven and bake for 20 to 25 minutes. The top should turn golden brown, and the oatmeal should be set.
- Serving: Remove from the oven and let it cool slightly. Serve warm, and enjoy the perfect blend of breakfast and dessert in one dish!
