  • 1 3/4 cups rolled oats, gluten free if desired
  • 1/2 cup Blue Diamond Roasted Salted Almonds, roughly chopped
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup mashed ripe banana (about 1 large ripe banana)
  • 1 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted and slightly cooled
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1.5 oz 70% dark chocolate bar, roughly chopped OR 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • Coarse sea salt, for sprinkling on top
  • Extra chopped Blue Diamond almonds for sprinkling on top, banana slices


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9 inch skillet or 9-inch baking dish with oil or nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together oats, chopped almonds, baking powder and cinnamon.
  3. In a separate bowl, add mashed banana, almond milk, egg, coconut oil, vanilla and almond extract. Mix together until well combined.
  4. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix to combine. Pour into prepared baking dish or skillet and smooth top. Sprinkle chocolate chips (or chocolate chunks) over the top. Bake for 32-37 minutes or until the edges begin to turn a slight golden brown. For an extra special touch, add bananas, a sprinkle of sea salt and chopped almonds on top. Serve warm with almond milk. Serves 6.

Recipe Notes

To store: Place in individual containers and store in the fridge for reheating later. When you reheat, be sure to add a tablespoon or two of milk to ensure oatmeal doesn't dry out.

To make vegan: Instead of an egg, use 1 flax egg (1 tablespoon flaxseed meal mixed with 3 tablespoons water).
