This healthy chocolate oat pudding recipe is so easy to make. It’s a delicious, guilt-free chocolate dessert made in the blender.

You won't believe the secret ingredient that makes this healthy chocolate pudding thick and creamy. Such a delicious dessert recipe! (oat pudding)


My husband invented this recipe.

It was inspired by our new kitchen workhorse, the Blendtec. We can’t get enough of this blender, and we’ve been experimenting with all sorts of textures and combinations.

So one night, my husband wanted something chocolate. I’m not sure what got him to think about this combination, but he ended up making a chocolate oatmeal pudding.

We’re not talking about overnight oatmeal with its lumpy texture. We’re talking about a thick, smooth, creamy chocolate pudding.

As it turns out, when you blend rolled oats together with milk in a high-powered blender, it makes a thick pudding. No corn starch or other thickener needed – the oats do the trick. Add a little maple syrup and cocoa powder, and you’ve got the perfect solution for those nighttime chocolate cravings.

Total Time:10 mins


  • 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 1/4 cups coconut milk or other milk
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder


  • Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend for one minute. I like to gradually work my way up to high during the first 30 seconds of the blend, then continue on high for another 30 seconds.
  • Transfer the mixture to a small saucepan. Heat over medium, whisking constantly, until it starts to thicken (about 2 minutes). Continue to heat the pudding over medium heat for 3 more minutes, whisking constantly.
  • The pudding will be thick enough to eat right away, but you can refrigerate it for about an hour to enjoy a chilled pudding. The leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for a few days.

  1. 5 stars
    I’m not a huge fan of oats but when mixed with chocolate, I think I can handle it 😉 all jokes aside your version looks seriously delicious and your photography is beautiful 🙂

    1. I haven’t tried it with steel cut oats, but it should work fine as long as they’re well ground in the blender.

  2. Could you use almond milk instead of coconut milk , I know in some puddings the almond milk just won’t set right . Thank you

    1. Good question, Michael. My husband has made this with almond milk. We use homemade almond milk though, so I’m not sure how it would work with store-bought almond milk. It’s definitely worth a try!

  3. Greetings from the UK And thanks for the recipe. Do you use rolled oats or quick microwaveable breakfast oats in the recipe? – cheers!

  4. Ooh totally intrigued. My daughter gets Chop Chop Magazine and there’s a recipe for berry oatmeal parfait I said we could make for breakfast tomorrow. I think we’ll swap in your chocolate oat pudding in it!

  5. Great idea using oats! never would have thought to use them! Great idea, this looks fantastic! Pinned 🙂
