Cooking Tips - If your oats look too moist after 30 minutes of cooking, give them an additional 5 minutes in the oven.
Specialty Ingredients - We used old-fashioned rolled oats for this recipe. You can use instant oats as well, but we do not recommend steel-cut oats.
Recommended Tools - We used these 10-ounce ramekins to make this recipe.
Storing Tips - Once baked, the oats will keep in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat them in a microwave or the oven. They are best served warm so the chocolate on top is melty.
Diet/Allergy Alternatives - You can make this vegan by swapping out the egg for an additional ¼ cup of plant milk, and substituting agave or maple syrup for the honey.
