This is my new favourite breakfast. Okay, I do say that quite often but this is definitely one of the better breakfasts I have made for us lately. It’s healthy, incredibly easy to make and absolutely delicious! And that so both cold and warm, although when served cold make sure you do it with an extra bit of jam.
I love everything with oats, from Anzac bickies to plain oatmeal with a sprinkle of sugar to the more extreme cauliflower oats (yes! oats with cauliflower, my husband thinks I’m a nutter but it is #trending on Instagram so I decided to try it and now I like it!) so I do wonder why it’s taken me so long to make baked oats. It’s also turned out to be a terrific breakky for Brett when he’s in a hurry to get out the door in the mornings.
I love how versatile it is too. Put anything from blueberries to nuts and seeds in it. Or why not sprinkle with coconut? Or if you’re feeling indulgent maybe a bit of chocolate chips is a good idea to throw in the mix. In the recipe below I used a mashed banana but you can swap that for apple sauce, grated apple or take it out completely. Whatever tickles your fancy, and as long as it’s not too wet an ingredient you’re good to go!
I served it for breakfast this morning with greek yoghurt and frozen blueberries (because I’m a week out from my last grocery shop…) but I think you can eat it just the way it is or with some fresh berries, fruit or cream for a decadent touch. Enjoy!
3 cups rolled oats
2 large eggs
3 cups milk, can be anything from cows milk to almond milk!
1 small mashed banana
1,5 tbsp baking powder
1 tbsp (or more!) of dutch cinnamon
3 heaped tbsp of brown rice syrup, or any other sweetener of choice
A handful of raisins, can be excluded
A pinch of salt
- Put oven on 180 celsius. Mix all ingredients.
- Spray a baking dish with non stick spray (or rub it with butter!) and place the mixture in it.
- Bake for about 40 mins or until it’s golden.
- After you’ve taken your oats out and if you like a sweet finish brush it with a bit of apricot or light plum jam, makes it even more delicious.
- Let it cool a little and dig in!
