Chocolate Chip Pecan Baked Oatmeal

If you're new to the Saucepans & Superheroes family and missed my original Baked Oatmeal post, check it out here.

Baked Oatmeal is the little black dress of recipes. So versatile, yet always a crowd pleaser! I've added fresh fruit, dried fruit, every nut under the sun (except acorns, that would just be weird) and granola...that's just for breakfast.

Today, I crossed over to the sweet side and converted breakfast to dessert. Why not?

Dessert Baked Oatmeal...your creativity knows no limits! Let the kids join in...toffee bits, marshmallows, chopped snickers, Andes dinner mints...Oh, mylanta!!

With so many sweet possibilities, I settled on pecans and chocolate chips. Crumble over a scoop of your favorite ice cream and I give you permission...go ahead, lick the bowl!

Chocolate Chip Pecan Baked Oatmeal

1/3 cup melted butter
2 large eggs
1 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/8 cup milk
3 cups quick oats (uncooked)
3/4 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Combine first seven ingredients in mixer (you can also use a hand mixer...or a whisk if you want a workout) until well combined. With mixer on low, slowly add oats to mixture.

(Hey goober, the paddle must be in the mixture in order to mix. I'm a dork!)

Add chocolate chips and pecan, stir gently until combined.Pour into favorite greased baking dish (I have also used a 9x13, it makes the oatmeal a little thinner).

You can prepare and store it covered in the refrigerator, baking it the next day! Easy breezy!

Bake in 350 degree oven for 35-40 min. If you use a larger pan (9x13), check on it occasionally as it won't take as long to cook.


(Little Man approves...obviously!)
