Baked Banana & Blueberry Oatmeal

If i’m not having pancakes at the weekend, i’m having Baked Oatmeal. It’s one of my favourite breakfasts, its so good! I love how thick and “cakey” the oats are, its my favourite texture in porridge! This is filled with warm juicy blueberries, sweet gooey banana & a touch of cinnamon, it smells so good when it comes out the oven! I love to serve this with dairy-free coconut yoghurt & drizzle with peanut butter & maple syrup! YUMMM!!

Serves 1-2

Ingredients

  • 100g oats
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 small/medium ripe banana, sliced
  • a handful fresh/frozen blueberries
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • a splash of dairy-free milk,

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/180 Fan/Gas mark 6.
  2. Add the oats, salt, cinnamon and 1/2 the sliced banana in a small baking dish, mix everything together, then add a splash of hot boiling water to just cover the oats.
  3. Mix well to combine, then allow the oats to soak for 10 minutes until soft and gooey and most of the water has absorbed.
  4. When the oats have been soaked, stir in a splash of dairy-free milk (not too much). Probably about 50ml.
  5. Now Stir in the vanilla extract, maple syrup, and blueberries, then add the other 1/2 of banana and a few blueberries on top then sprinkle with a little more cinnamon!
  6. Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes until lightly golden on top and the blueberries have burst.
  7. Serve with dairy-free coconut yoghurt, drizzle with peanut butter & maple syrup! Enjoy!
