Baked Chocolate Oats

This recipe was created by a friend of mine so I can't claim any credit for it- but can say with confidence that it will change your life!

I am a creature of habit when it comes to breakfast and will happily eat a natural muesli with yoghurt and fruit most of the time, but there often comes a time when I truly just need a change!

Try this recipe to enjoy a fibre-rich, fertility-friendly breakfast or snack that gives you everything that you need all bundled up into a cake like consistency.

I have to add that it does contain some dark chocolate chips and usually I recommend avoiding sugar, but I've tried this with a smaller portion of choc chips, and without and it still tastes great. If you're concerned about the sugar in the choc chips then just leave them out or bake this recipe and store some pieces in the freezer to enjoy a few times a week in amongst your other usual options.


  • 3 eggs

  • 600ml milk/ enough for a thick consistency (I usually use less than this)

  • 50g chia seeds

  • 50g sunflower seeds

  • 50g flaxseeds

  • 150g cocoa powder

  • 80g dark chocolate chips

  • 50g maple syrup

  • 10 turns of iodised salt

  • 3 tsp baking powder


  1. Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl and mix well

  2. Combine all wet ingredients in a bowl and mix well

  3. Combine wet & dry ingredients and let thicken for 5 minutes

  4. Bake for 30+ minutes or until the top is golden brown

I serve mine with greek yoghurt and chopped fresh fruit like banana or berries.
