I'm back with another high protein baked oatmeal recipe for you this week: Caramel baked oats. I hopped on this trend a little late. However, the baked oat recipes are coming in hot! I love baked oatmeal because it is super filling. I usually struggle with getting super hungry after breakfast, but these chocolate caramel baked oats help a lot.
As I continue to eat more baked oats like these caramel baked oats, I am truly amazed at the endless flavor options. You can create pretty much any dessert in baked oatmeal form. I posted my chocolate peanut butter banana baked oats a while back on instagram. The post ended up getting a ton of saves, so I am glad you guys like them as well! You can expect to see a lot more! I already have quite a few baked oats recipes on my blog.
My favorite baked oats recipes:
- Red Velvet Baked Oats
- Chocolate Chip Banana Baked Oats
- Lemon Poppy Seed Baked Oats
- Cinnamon Raisin Baked Oats
If you love oatmeal, but don't necessarily have time to make one of my high protein baked oatmeal recipes, then I would encourage you to try one of my high protein overnight oats recipes! Here are some of my top picks:
Best vegan protein powder for high protein baked oatmeal:
Of course this high protein caramel baked oats recipe wouldn't be complete without my absolute favorite plant based protein powder: PlantFusion. If you've been following me for awhile, you know that I am absolutely hooked on Plant Fusion. There's seriously is not a single product of theirs that I am not obsessed with. These chocolate caramel baked oats use my absolute favorite protein from PlantFusion: Chocolate Caramel Complete Meal.
I know that sometimes I can talk a little too much about this product, but it is truly the best tasting protein I have ever had. A huge reason I love PlantFusion so much is that you can truly trust all their products. They have their Purity Promise which states: "Certified Non-GMO, Vegan, Gluten Free, and free of dairy, soy, rice, eggs, nuts, fish, tree nuts, shellfish, artificial flavors and colors." This is key for me, especially with supplements, because you sometimes never know what's in the products, but with PlantFusion you know and can trust their labels. As always you can use my code: "NATURALVEGAN" for 25% off your entire purchase at PlantFusion.com.
Healthy Vegan refined sugar-free Caramel :
I filled these chocolate caramel baked oats with my 2 Ingredient Caramel , and it worked perfectly. The caramel melted in the oats, giving it that perfect warm decadent center. I think next time I'm gonna add a piece of chocolate to the caramel center just to give it a little something extra. This high protein baked oatmeal recipe is single serve, but you could easily make this recipe for more people in a larger baking dish, and I am sure it would come out just as well. In order to keep the same caramel filling I would just add random drops of caramel throughout the baking dish.
Ingredients for these Chocolate Caramel Baked Oats:
- Gluten-free oats
- PlantFusion Chocolate Caramel Complete Meal
- Baking soda
- Plant based milk
- 2 Ingredient Vegan Caramel
