Baked Oats

Want a substantial breakfast yet a healthy one? Well I have some delicious baked oats recipes for you to try out.

The joy about these baked oats is you can add on nuts, fruits & flavours you want. My most recent one was an Indian one inspired by barfis and gulab jamans. All the yummy flavours minus the ghee and sugar.

Baked Oats Recipes

I have also made a vegan one after someone requested one on Pinterest. Instead of an egg I used flaxseed. I put in a banana to this one too for that softness.

Baked oats are best enjoyed when they are warm. If you find this portion too much for one day, cover and leave the one half in the fridge and warm it up the next day.

You can enjoy the baked oats on their own (it tastes like warm cake), or with some yoghurt and fruit. If you find it too dry you can pour some milk on top too.

With all the baked oats recipes below, I bake them for about 10-20 minutes. I personally think after 10 minutes they are ready but if you like it more cooked and cake like you just increase the baking time.
