Okay, you guys. I was hesitant to make this even though the idea struck me as genius. Basically, there’s a lot of sugar in here that doesn’t come from fruit or maple syrup, which I try to stay away from. But a treat every now and then should be indulged in guilt-free if you so choose. No pressure. But you may wanna try this. For breakfast OR dessert! 😉
It’s a breakfasty twist on a classic campfire favorite. But marshmallows are all the rage in the winter for hot chocolate (expect the baked hot chocolate oatmeal recipe soon!), so I figured why not make a s’mores oatmeal even though it’s winter? This is a toasty, warm, delicious way to make one when it’s cold outside. Enjoy, friends!

A super delicious and sinfully sweet baked s'mores oatmeal made with fruit and oats, so it's still appropriate breakfast food yet sweet enough for dessert. It's vegan and gluten-free, so enjoy!
- 1 banana, ripe (fresh or frozen-thawed)
- 3 tbsp water/plant milk
- 1/2 - 1 tbsp maple syrup (to taste)
- 1 tbsp ground flax/chia
- 1/2 cup rolled oats (GF if needed)
- 1 tbsp nondairy chocolate chips (or more as desired)
- 1 tbsp marshmallows (vegan and GF // or more as desired)
- 4 vanilla wafers (vegan and GF // or graham crackers - I had wafers on hand)
Preheat oven at 375 degrees F (190 C) and ready your ramekin (either with parchment paper or nonstick spray - I choose to bake this oatmeal without either).
In a medium bowl, mash banana. Then add water/milk, maple syrup, and flax/chia and mix well.
Stir in oats, then chocolate chips, then marshmallows. Crush/break up 3 vanilla wafers and mix gently. Then top with 1 crushed/broken-up wafer (and more chocolate/marshmallows if desired).
Pour mixture into your ramekin and bake for 20-22 minutes. Let cool slightly before enjoying!
