Ooey Gooey Oatmeal Brownies 

Here is the brownie recipe I promised in my last post. Brownie recipes are so versatile it could be made the sinfully decadent way or the guilt free healthy way with a simple ingredient we all have in our pantry.

There are so many variations, you can make it with almond flour,coconut flour, chickpea flour, mashed red beans  etc… instead of the regular all purpose flour. This time, I’m making mine with quick cook oats. 

This recipe is eggless, nut free and gluten free and yet it’s fudgy and decadent. Hard to believe, right? 

Here is the recipe….

Dry ingredients 

  • Quick cook oats – 1 1/2 cups (powdered)
  • Milk powder – 1/2 cup
  • Baking powder – 1 teaspoon 
  • Baking soda – 1/4 teaspoon 
  • Salt – 1/2 teaspoon 
  • Cocoa powder- 1/4 cup 

Wet ingredients 

  • Condensed milk – 1 can 
  • Butter – 1/4 cup (melted) 
  • Pure vanilla extract – 1 tbspn
  • Milk – 1 1/2 cups (warm) 

Toppings

  • Semi sweet chocolate chips – 1/2 cup
  • Toffee bites – 1/2 cup 


Put the oats in the food processor and make into a fine powder. (same texture as the almond flour) 


Pour it into a bowl, Mix all the dry ingredients with it and keep it aside 

*since we are sprinkling the top with chocolate chips and toffee bites I didn’t add any extra sugar otherwise the brownies will become too sweet. 


Combine all the wet ingredients together 

*Make sure the milk is warm it’s very important, it soaks up the oats nicely so you get really soft brownies. 

Pour the wet mix to the dry mix and combine it well.

Prepare the square pan, grease the sides put a parchment paper on the bottom. 

Pour the batter, smooth it out, tap and shake the pan to make it evenly spread. 

*Let it sit in the pan for 10 to 15 minutes. It allows the oats to soak up the milk mixture and thickens up nicely. 

*The consistency of this batter will be like the cake batter. It’s not going to be as thick as the regular brownie batter. 


Now sprinkle the chocolate chips and the toffee bites to your heart’s content. 

Meanwhile preheat the oven at 350*F 

Now put the pan in the oven and bake it for 30 minutes 


Oh my it’s so chocolaty and smells divine! 

  • Keep in mind the chips take a couple of hours to harden
  • If you try to cut it while the brownie is warm you will smudge the chips and it won’t retain the shape. 

So I recommend you to let it stay in the pan for sometime. 


Once it cools nicely , cut it into tiny bites…


The milk powder gives the creamy and the chewy texture to these brownies. The toffee bites give a nice crunch, the chocolate chips add the perfect amount of sweetness. 

What can I say, these ooey gooey oatmeal Brownies are sinfully delicious! These are so yummy you never know it’s made with oats. 


It is ideal for a bake sale and for the kids with allergies. 


I made a huge batch for the easter party, kids loved it!


These oatmeal brownies could be a tasty treat for the snack box or a quick breakfast bite or a decadent dessert you can indulge without any guilt. Enjoy !!!

    Thank you for the recipe. Gluten free recipes is something I haven’t tried baking.

    1. You are welcome! Gluten free tastes as good as the regular ones! All I do is replace the all purpose flour with something healthy like oats or nut flours. We don’t eat eggs so I use condensed milk but you can use eggs if you want to.

    1. Thank you so much! I’m so glad to hear that you love this recipe! I normally make it with almond flour but when I was asked to make a nut free version for the kids, the first thing that came to my mind was oats. It took a couple of trials to perfect this recipe but to my surprise it came out really good! Thanks again for the wonderful feedback, You just made my day! 😀

    1. Thank you! Milk powder gives that fudgy texture to these brownies. If you want, You can substitute it with 1/4 cup of all purpose flour / cake flour / maida, but this gives a cake like texture.
