Vegan Gluten-free Baked Chocolate Oats

* This post is sponsored by FREEE*

A delicious breakfast that tastes like a dessert! This vegan gluten-free baked chocolate oats recipe is perfect to enjoy on a chilled cold weekend day.

I’m sprucing up my morning porridge by adding chocolate, and instead of cooking it in a pan I’m baking it in the oven. The main difference in the end result is the texture. Porridge is lovely and creamy, whereas baking it in the oven turn your porridge into soft, chewy and creamy yumminess. Both are equally delicious, but it’s nice to change things up a little and baking your oats is a really fun way to enjoy your morning oats. 

I mentioned in my previous post that I’m trying to liven up my breakfasts to make them more exciting and a little different from my usual morning go-tos. I’ve teamed up with FREEE to create some simple, fun and healthy breakfast recipes. Their range of breakfast products really does make starting your day with a vegan, gluten free and organic breakfast as easy as ‘one, two, FREEE’. Their cereals and oats are organic, naturally gluten free and vegan certified.

The FREEE Breakfast Cereals range includes:

  • Porridge Oats
  • Cereal Flakes
  • Fibre Flakes
  • Corn Flakes
  • Organic Chocolate Stars

For my final breakfast recipe, I wanted to create a warm recipe and what’s more warming than porridge? I combined their gluten-free porridge oats with some cocoa, banana and nut butter to create a delicious, sweet and comforting meal that’s basically the chocolate lover’s ultimate dream breakfast! I also added some chocolate chips for good measure.

This vegan gluten-free baked chocolate oats is really easy to put together and you can bake it in advance and warm it up for 5 minutes in the oven in the morning for a speedier breakfast. You can half the recipe if you’re only making it for yourself or double it and use an 8” baking tin to make a bigger portion. You can also go crazy with the toppings and add chopped nuts, dates, dried fruit or whatever else you fancy!
