I cook more now that ever, and not only to save money, but also to lose weight and this is one of the easiest breakfast ‘recipes’ in my book (can I even call it a recipe?)
I discovered Baked Oats while at a Slimming World class and its so adaptable to whatever fruit you have hanging around in the bottom of the fruit bowl – see above for tinned pineapple and below for frozen cherries and grapes :
To make the Baked Oat you will need;
- 35g Porridge Oats
- 1 egg
- 3tbs artificial sweetener
- 90g any flavoured yoghurt you fancy
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 100g any fruit you fancy (frozen fruit seems to work really well in this)
Preheat your oven to 200°C/Fan 180°C/Gas 6.
Mix all the ingredients into a bowl – stir really well so none of the oats are dry and clumpy.
Scrape into a oven safe dish and bake for around 30-35 minutes until top is browned and crispy looking.
This is such a nice breakfast and to top it off I add some more yoghurt on top and chopped fruit once it has cooled a little (burned my mouth more than once I’m ashamed to say!)
