I have been addicted to brownies lately and am constantly making them, it seems. But this is a nice new twist to classic brownies! I need to make them sometime.

I see the recipe is for 2 servings. Is the nutritional breakdown listed for 1 serving or if you eat the whole recipe?

This looks so good – I might have it for dessert instead of breakfast! Thanks for posting vegan options, too. Have you tried making it with banana instead of yogurt before?

Definitely gonna have to make this one. I just signed up for a membership. Question would this be considered a Simply Filling recipe that doesn’t need to be counted or is there something in here that we still need to count?

Just whipped this up this afternoon! I used PB Marshmallow flavored protein powder, so I guess I’ll be having Peanut Butter Brownie oatmeal for breakfast. :) Can’t wait!!

What brand is that protein powder…..sounds yummy. Making this tomorrow, can’t wait.

Jane said:

Tonya,

It’s Cellucor! I was actually a little let down with the protein powder itself (flavor wise wasn’t what I was expecting), but using it in baking has been working well! :)

Thank you for this recipe. It’s so good and Dreds the chocolate craving! I split this with hubby in the morning – I warm mine up, and put his half in the blender with frozen banana and spinach.

So you dont use actual brownie mix?

Joymarie said:

So I mixed mine up a bit and used real sugar but only 6tsp, added 1/4c of powdered peanut butter, and used Chobani’s simply 100 greek vanilla yogurt. The total WW PTS calculated for one serving was 10 but it has 20g of protein! I am beyond excited to eat this after crossfit tomorrow! Thanks for the idea.

Tried this recipe last night, and I am eating it right now. Best refrigerator oatmeal ever! I only had almond/coconut milk on hand, but of course that didn’t hurt a thing. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe–it’s a keeper!

This is probably gonna sound like a silly question, but could I use regular sugar instead of of the baking sugar or Stevia stuff? I’m a poor college student and so I only have access to what my parents have. I know the health value would be taken down a notch, but would it still taste just as good?

I am not normally an oatmeal fan (hate the texture of it), but I saw this recipe, I had all the ingredients on hand, so I decided why not give it a try, and I LOVED it! I mainly eat it after I run because it’s a great source of protein and healthy carbs, and of course…chocolate!!

If I have liquid stevia… How much would I add? Is it the same measurement.. I’m kind of new to the liquid

Love this idea! I use The Challenge Vi-shape protein which tastes like cake mix so I don’t need to add any Stevia or sugar. (I find it leaves a bitter after-taste.) I love pb and chocolate too. Avocado adds healthy fat and really thickens any shake. I always make mine at night for brekky.

This is what I wrote when I pined your delicious recipe. “It looks delicious and it is delicious! First I was a bit sceptical and waited to give it a try before repining. I must confess I just refrigerated it an hour and couldn’t wait any longer. I used plain milk and raw sugar and I replaced the protein powder with a mashed really ripe banana. Well, I ate it as if I hadn’t eaten for quite a while and I won’t need a dessert tonight!”
Thank you!

Katie, this is so chocolatey and delicious! We used regular unsweetened cocoa, I was out of dark cocoa powder, and omitted the protein powder (serving this to my little ones). It is so good, I’m going to need to make a second batch! I made it when I woke up, and it was ready by the time I was done showering and emptying the dishwasher. Quick, easy, delicious! Thank you Katie!

I must say this was pretty tasty. I added sliced almonds and used agave syrup instead of stevia.

This was the best breakfast ever! My husband is the pickiest eater in the world and he loved it too! The only difference is that mine had a slightly higher calorie count. Is your calorie count with almond milk? It could be the protein powder that made the difference. Just curious! Fabulous recipe!

I just ate this for breakfast after an intense workout and i fell so good right now. I opted out of the protein powder and used maple syrup instead of stevia. Just delicious. Thank you for making my breakfast this much better!

Doesn’t this fall out of the E category for THM since it has 6 grams of fat since the max is 5? This recipe sounds soooo incredible!!!
