BAKED OATS FOR BREAKFAST
My daughter made me this for breakfast and it was really delicious. It is a great way to incorporate some more protein into your breakfast as it has one egg in it. It keeps really well in the fridge and we had it for breakfast the following day as well. It is very easy and quick to make, so then you just put it in the oven for 35 minutes and it cooks whilst you are doing other things (like feeding the pets etc) and then your breaky is ready.
I served mine with chopped Strawberries, Pumpkin Seeds and Chia Seeds sprinkled over the top.
It is not sweet, so if you needed a sweeter kick, you could add some Maple Syrup drizzled over the top.
If you used Gluten Free Oats and Baking Powder, it will be Gluten Free. It is Dairy Free and Vegetarian, so ticks lots of boxes!!!
You could add any nuts or fruit you like, this is the recipe my daughter made, but feel free to change it around as long as you keep the dry to wet ingredients ratio. I was just thinking, I might try putting the mixture in muffin cases – I think that would work really well and they would be a great portable breakfast or snack.
- 200 g Porridge Oats
- 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
- 35 g Almonds, roughly chopped
- 1 Egg, beaten
- 1 Banana, mashed
- 600 mls Oat Milk
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla Essence
- 500 g mixed Berries (in this picture, Blueberries, Blackberries and Raspberries)
Preheat your oven to 200 degrees.
Mix the Oats, Baking Powder and Almonds together.
In another bowl, mix the beaten Egg, Oat Milk, Vanilla Essence and mashed Banana.
Add the mixed Berries.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix well.
Pour into an oven proof dish and cook for 35 minutes.
If it is not very brown on top, you can turn on the grill for the last few minutes and just brown the top, but keep an eye on it as it browns quite quickly.
Serve with extra fruit, seeds, nuts or berries!!! You can add a drizzle of honey or maple syrup if you want it to be a bit sweeter.
