Baked Oats with Fruits and Nuts

Hi Everyone 🙂

If you’re on Tiktok then you’ll already be aware of the new trend called baked oats. Although baked oats have been around for a while they have recently become quite popular on TikTok as many foods. Baked oats are great for breakfast, very filling and nice when eaten warm. This recipe is great because it makes at least 4 portions so will last for many mornings throughout the week. Oats provide the body with a good source of protein and the walnuts are a great source of antioxidants and omega-3s.

Healthy Oats Bars

Hello everyone, I hope you’ve all had a great day.

I’m still on a journey of making baking treats that don’t contain as much sugar and this recipe was a combination of oat muffin recipes which I found online. As you can see, the mixture was very flapjack like so rather than adding more liquid I just put it into a flat baking tray to make these delicious oat bars. This recipe was a bit of an experiment for me and it turned out okay, not too sweet but very filling.

My top nutritional ingredient from these bars are the oats, a staple in most households and fairly cheap in the supermarket depending on the brand. Studies show that oats have many health benefits and are known to be one of the healthiest grains on earth. In the UK, many people do not consume enough fibre and oats are a great source of fibre which helps to keep the gut healthy and possibly reducing issues such as constipation.

Recipe: Healthy oat bars (makes 16)

Ingredients

220g oats, extra to sprinkle on top

120ml milk

1 tbsp maple syrup

80ml oil

60g soft brown sugar

1 egg

140g wholemeal flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp mixed spice

Method

  • Firstly, preheat the oven to gas mark 6 and line a baking tin with parchment paper.
  • Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl and whisk the wet ingredients separately.
  • Gently combine together, stirring well and pour into the prepared baking tray.
  • Bake in the oven for 25 minutes and allow to cool for at least 10 minutes before eating.

Mars Bar Flapjacks

Hi everyone, I hope you’ve had a great day. I made this recipe because we had quite a few Mars bars in the house as it’s everyone’s least favourite chocolate bar. I decided on flapjacks because of the sweet ingredients from the syrup and sugar and I thought the Mars bar would be a great alternative. So… the end result was okay, the flapjacks stuck together and looked good however, there was a slight malt-nougat taste that I didn’t really like. Anyway, the good thing about this recipe is that there are only 3 ingredients and it takes very little time to make.

Recipe: Mars Bar Flapjack (makes 9)

Ingredients

150g oats

80g butter

3 Mars bars – chopped

Method

  • Preheat the oven to gas mark 5 and line a oven tray with baking paper.
  • Pour the oats into a bowl and then separately melt the butter and chopped Mars bars in a pot ans stir.
  • Pour the mixture over the oats and combine everything together. Put into the tray and bake in the oven for 15 minutes.
