Below is a nutritious baked oats recipe sourced from BBC Good Food, tweaked for an individual portion. All you need is an oven-proof baking dish or ramekin which serves one and a blender. Once you try this breakfast, you won’t look back!
- 35g porridge oats
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 ripe banana
- 1 tbsp honey or maple syrup
- 1 egg
- Spray oil or low calories spray to grease the dish
- Your choice of toppings
To begin with, preheat your oven at 180C and place the oats into your blender, blending with a few pulses until the consistency resembles flour.
Peel and dice your banana (the riper, the better for added sweetness) and add to the blended oats with the egg, baking powder and honey or maple syrup. Blend together until a smooth, batter-like consistency is created.
Then use your spray oil or low calorie spray to cover the dish or ramekin to make sure the baked oats don’t stick to the dish.
Pour your batter into the dish and bake for 15/20 mins until the top turns a golden brown colour and the oats feel firm.
