Healthy and satisfying, this Vegan Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Breakfast Bake is a trifecta of delicious flavors and full of comforting goodness.



Dry Ingredients:

  • 4 cups rolled oats (not instant oats)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt (+/-) *

Wet Ingredients:

  • 5 Medjool dates, pitted, chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla
  • ½ cup unsweetened peanut butter
  • ½ cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 ¼ cups unsweetened plain plant milk
  • ¾ cup mashed ripe bananas
  • 1 teaspoon molasses *
  • ½ to 1 cup vegan chocolate chips *

Optional Individual Serving Topping Ingredients:

  • Drizzle unsweetened peanut butter (optionally thinned with hot tap water & splash of maple)
  • Sprinkle vegan chocolate chips
  • Sliced bananas


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 F.
  2. Line the bottom of a 9 x 13 baking dish with parchment paper, set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, add all the Dry Ingredients, mix well, set aside.
  4. Place the pitted Medjool dates in a food processor and pulse to break them up. Then add all the remaining Wet Ingredients (except for the chocolate chips). Pulse for several minutes until the mixture is smooth.  You will still see some tiny bits of dates in the mixture.  Scrape down the food processor about half-way to ensure the dates have not clumped together. Break them up with your hands and process again, if needed.
  5. Add the wet ingredients to the oat mixture in the large bowl, and mix well, then add the chocolate chips. Stir for several minutes to allow the wet ingredients to absorb into the oats and become thick.
  6. Carefully dump the mixture into a parchment paper (bottom only) lined baking dish.Spread out mixture evenly with a rubber spatula.  Press the mixture down lightly to ensure everything is cohesive.
  7. Place in a preheated oven, and bake for 35 minutes, or until set.
  8. Remove from the oven and allow to sit for 10 minutes before serving.
  9. Top individual servings with a drizzle of peanut butter, sprinkle of chocolate chips and/or sliced bananas. Best if served warm.
  10. To reheat, place individual serving in a microwave safe bowl/plate and microwave for 10 seconds (or longer) until warm.
