RECIPE: Baked choc banana oats

What a busy week it’s been catching up on all of the work and tasks I was unable to do last week.

It’s also been a busy week food-wise as I have finally been able to eat all of the yummy, nourishing, and in a few cases naughty, foods that I was eyeing while unwell.

This morning I did some meal plan formulation work. My brain was filled with calculations of kilojoules (and calories), macro-nutrient percentage breakdowns and comparing Nutrient Reference Values to my formulated daily meal plans. It ended up being a stressful morning with too many figures running through my mind!

So when my tummy was growling at me because when I woke I got stuck straight into my work and forgot to have breakfast (how crazy of me), I knew it was time to make something good.

And good it was!

Warm and fluffy oats with hints of chocolate and banana… and a crunchy nutty topping.

Baked Choc Banana Oats

Serves: 1 (just double the ingredients to make 2, etc)

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats (if you are short of time, use quick oats!)
  • 1 ripe mashed banana
  • 1 cup rice milk (any milk or milk alternative is fine)
  • 1 teaspoon cacao powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • Topping:
    • 1 tablespoon crushed walnuts
    • 1 teaspoon coconut sugar

Method

  1. Place oven on 200C.
  2. Spray small oven-proof dish with canola or olive oil.
  3. Place mashed banana, oats, cacao powder, baking powder, milk into dish and mix together.
  4. Top with walnuts and a sprinkle of coconut sugar – OR top with anything you like! My next conquest is sunflower seeds and maple syrup!
  5. Place in oven. Allow to bake for 20-30 minutes (15 minutes if using quick oats).
  6. Once oats have risen and browned on top, enjoy warm!

Happy Friday everyone!
