EASY BASIC BAKED OATS
Updated: Mar 9
If you are into porridge as much as I am but sometimes just feel like you're craving something different, these baked oats are the ultimate alternative to your daily porridge.
The ingredients are just the same as in porridge. The only thing that differs from porridge to baked oats actually is that you use oat flour instead of usual oatmeal. I like to use instant oats from myprotein.com.
What are instant oats?
Instand oats are actually just the same as finely ground oats. So if you don't have instant oats at home you could also simply put the oats in your food processor or grinder and blend until you have a flour similar oatmeal.
You could also use fine oat flakes. If using oat flakes keep in mind your baked oats won't have the typical cake texture though.
The ingredients in this baked oats recipe are the basic ingredients. Basically oats, banana, milk and baking powder.
Feel free to be creative. You could also add cocoa powder, dried fruits, chopped nuts, rasped carrot (for carrot cake baked oats), or anything that comes to your mind.
Time: 10 minutes prep time + 20 minutes baking time
50 grams instant oats, oat flour or blended oats

1/2 tsp baking powder
1 Tbsp nut butter for the filling (me: Walnut butter)
Chocolate for the topping
Fruits, me: sliced apple
Vanilla or Cinnamon

When not using oatmeal, blend the oats into oat flour. Mash the banana.

Pour the batter into an ovenproof bowl or baking tray.
Optional: Put 1 Tbsp Nut Butter in the middle of the batter. Put chocolate on top of the batter.
