Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, we all know it but sometimes it can slip. Breakfast comes with much less variation than every other meal of the day, you wouldn’t eat the same dinner for weeks on end but that seems to be the norm for breakfast. Things become even more complex if you want to be eating a healthy filling meal.
Enter baked oatmeal, it’s easily customised with different fruits (dried fruits, pears, apple sauce) and spices (cinnamon and ginger are my cold season favourites). So it’s basically the same good for you, fuller for longer meal but the add-ons can change everyday if you are that way inclined!
Apple and strawberry baked oatmeal
1/3 cup sugar (can be decreased)
1tsp baking powder
1 apple diced small (peel on)
1 small punet strawberries quartered
Dash of milk (I never measure it because it varies so much with the fruits you use)
1. Mix every thing apart from the fruits to give a stiff cake batter type texture, using your discretion with the amount of milk.
2. Stir through the fruit and divide the mix into 2 bowls or individual baking dishes.
3. Bake in the oven heated to 180C for 45mins or until the top is golden brown.
4. I serve mine with low fat yoghurt either fruity or Greek but that’s just my personal preference.
Yum yum yum! I make 2 every other day and keep on in the fridge overnight and it keeps just fine. Happy breakfast!
