Strawberry and vanilla baked oatmeal

The question is… when will I tired of baked oats? Not yet anyway. I can find myself craving some baked oats in the middle of the day. Or as soon as I finish the batch I made I want to make more…. So far I really can’t choose a favourite combination. They are all so good in their own way. But the two flavoured baked oats which I crave a little extra is the snickers version and the carrot cake version…. Considering both of those are dessert flavours I guess it is not strange that those are the ones which according to me are the tastiest. If your breakfast can taste like a version of dessert, why not?

Personally, I love the base oatmeal recipe I already use. And haven’t really felt the need to change it… instead just changing the flavour combo. I am sure there are other base recipes for baked oats you can try if you want to try another base.

I do have to say that this baked oatmeal was one of the best smelling ones! If only I could transfer the smell of this freshly baked oatmeal via the computer… but I guess that just means you have to bake it yourself to smell it!

I originally wanted to make this as strawberries and cream baked oatmeal… and I am sure I could have used soya cream or oat cream or even coconut cream instead of vanilla yoghurt. As well as serving this with some whipped soya cream and strawberries… but as I had vanilla yoghurt at home I thought it would be almost the same. I might still have to make strawberries and cream overnight oats, but it feels like it would be more of a dessert rather than breakfast or snack if I were to use soya cream. But well…. I guess anything can be a snack or breakfast if you just eat it at that meal time, haha.

So less talking, onto the recipe!

Recipe

Ingredients:

5dl oats. 250g strawberries – fresh or frozen. 1-2 tsp vanilla sugar/powder. 2 bananas. 2 tsp chia seeds. 100ml vanilla yoghurt. 350ml boiled water.

How to:

In a bowl add the oats, vanilla sugar, 1 banana – mashed, 2 tsp chia seeds, half of the strawberries, chopped and the boiling water. Mix and cover with a plate. After 5-10 minutes when the oats have absorbed the water, remove the lid and add the vanilla yoghurt to the bowl and mix.

Pour the oats into a baking tray and spread out evenly. Add some strawberry and banana slices on top. Then bake in the oven at 180C for 30-35 minutes.

Take out of the oven and eat warm with some extra vanilla yoghurt, and why not some crushed walnuts on top for crunch!

    Would a cup of tea be acceptable to go with this?
