Organic GOOEY BAKED OATS With Peanut Butter, Dark Chocolate
Oats are among the healthiest grains on earth. They are naturally gluten-free, and have plenty of health benefits that won't bake-off.
They are a fabulous source of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. In addition they boast high levels of carbohydrates and soluble fibre, these two things combined have the power to help you fill up, and fuel up for longer, forgetting all about that second cup of coffee.
Chances are, you've also seen oats in tons of skincare products, as well as the breakfast menu. Eating the superfood could offer just as many benefits to your skin, if not more, as oats contain anti-inflammatory compounds which help fight the impacts of ageing, including wrinkles! Oats can also help lower blood sugar, aid weight loss, reduce the risk of heart disease and promote a healthy gut.
Try out our gooey baked oats recipe, with peanut butter, dark choccie and blueberries.
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Set Time: Either bake straight away, OR for best results make the night before
Cook Time: 20 Mins Approximately
Makes: 2 - 3
1 Cup organic rolled oats
1 Cup milk of your choice
1 small banana
2 Tbsp honey or date nectar
1/2 Tsp baking powder
1 Eggs or flax egg
Dollop of peanut butter for each
Square of dark chocolate for each, percentage your choice
Optional - 4 Blueberries for each
Set the oven to 180° Fan / 375° F
Prepare your greased (use coconut oil) 8 ounce ramekins or oven safe mugs.
In a mixer combine the oats, milk, banana, honey or date nectar, baking powder and egg until smooth.
Pour into your ramekins.
Add the peanut butter, dark chocolate and blueberries to the centre.
Bake for 18 - 20 minutes. The top should spring back slightly once cooked. If they seem too gooey for you leave them in for another 2 minuets, however, bear in mind that we recommend leaving them to rest for a couple of minutes once out of the oven, as they will keep steaming.
Let cool slightly before enjoying. Why not top with yoghurt too?
Try not to overbake the oats as they become dry.
Soak the serving dish immediately so it's easier to clean.
