Does your family always say no when it comes to oatmeal, well they won't anymore once you try this baked version. Good food doesn't have to be bland or unappealing, this is one example for that. I came across this recipe in Amanda's blog. The moment I saw this , I know it's definitely going to be on our breakfast table.
I tried immediately within the next few days. And our oatmeal enemies have become so friendly with it now. This humble food taste great on it's own, but it needed some glamour to stand out on the table, so I added some fruit yogurt and fruit compote. You can enjoy the way you wish, you can also add some fruit and nut while baking. The good thing is, it's just so easy to make. So now no excuse to skip the breakfast.
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 to 20 minutes
Serves 2 adults and 2 kids
Oats- 150 g
Butter- 1 tbsp melted
Brown sugar- 50 g
Honey- 1 tbsp
Milk- 100 ml
Vanilla essence- 1 tsp
Baking powder- 1 tsp
Blueberry- 100 g
Maple syrup- 2 tbsp
You can replace brown sugar with white sugar and add more sugar if you want to. And serve on it's own without fruit compote and fruit yogurt.
Preheat the oven to 180 degree Celsius. Powder the oats in a blender. Mix the powdered oats , sugar, honey, baking powder, essence , egg and milk together without any lumps. Finally add the melted butter and mix well. If you are looking for a soft texture pour it in a shallow oval dish or 20 cm square dish and bake it in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes. Until the top layer looks firm.
If you want it like bars, pour it in a bigger dish and bake till the top looks firm.
Serve warm with yogurt and compote.
To make the compote:
Add the blueberries and maple syrup to the pan and bring it to medium to low heat. Cook until the fruit gets softened and it looks syrupy.
