Chocolate for breakfast? Count me in! Dark Chocolate Blackberry Baked Oatmeal is a great way to start your day. Packed with whole-grains, fiber, protein and antioxidants, you can't go wrong with this flavorful breakfast. This baked oatmeal tastes so much more indulgent than it is and the combination of dark chocolate and blackberries is just too delicious! It will be hard to stop at just one piece! This is one of my favorite breakfasts (or desserts) ever!

Baked oatmeal is a perfect breakfast to enjoy on a slow weekend morning or is great for meal prep during the week. For meal prep, just cut this baked oatmeal into pieces and store in to-go containers to enjoy through the week. It would be perfect to serve at a brunch and is impressive with real blackberries in it and pretty chocolate shavings on top.

You can use frozen blackberries for this recipe or fresh, whatever is more available at that time. I thought it would be fun to put a little bit of dark chocolate shavings on the top of this baked oatmeal recipe to make it seem more indulgent and to really give that dark chocolate and blackberry flavors. You can top this baked oatmeal with a bit of syrup if you like but it is very tasty on its own and doesn't really need it. It would be awesome with a homemade blackberry sauce!

Oats are a great source of B vitamins and fiber. When you want something different than a typical bowl of oatmeal, baked oatmeal is a great option. In this recipe, I like using quick oats for a lighter texture but old-fashioned oats will work well too if you want a more chewy baked oatmeal. Blackberries are one of the fruits highest in fiber and they're also a great source of vitamins A and C which are antioxidants which can help protect against cancer.

For a boost of protein and vitamins, I added in Vital Proteins Dark Chocolate Blackberry Collagen Peptides. It blends really easily into this baked oatmeal and gives a delicious dark chocolate berry flavor. It uses real cocoa and blackberry powder for a natural flavor. If you do not have any of this on hand, chocolate protein powder will work or even cocoa powder.
