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.

Mini Oat Raisin Biscuits

Hello everyone, I hope your day has been well.

I have previously mentioned about reducing sugar in the things I bake and these biscuits only contain maple syrup and raisins for sweetness. They are quite plain but this make me realise how much added sugar is in processed products. These biscuits are quite dry so they would be perfect for dipping into your tea!!

Recipe: Mini Oat raisin Biscuits (makes 12)

Ingredients

50g oats

50g plain flour

1/2 baking powder

Pinch of cinnamon

20g raisins

20g butter

1 tbsp maple syrup

3 tbsp milk or milk alternative

Method

  • Preheat the oven to gas mark 6 and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  • Combine all of the dry ingredients together in a bowl.
  • Melt the butter, syrup and 3 tablespoons of milk together, pour into the bowl and mix together until a dough forms.
  • The dough might be a little stiff so you could add a little more milk, otherwise roll out onto a lightly floured surface and use a cutter to cut out the biscuit shapes.
  • Place on the baking tray and bake in the oven for 10 minutes and leave to cool on a wire rack before eating.

Dark Chocolate Oat Cake Slices

Hello everyone, I hope your day has been well.

Today’s post is all about these delicious cake slices. I’m trying to create recipes that are slightly healthier but still taste good. I decided to use a dark chocolate with a cocoa percentage higher than 70% because it contains less sugar and is much healthier. Dark chocolate is also a great source of antioxidants providing health benefits to the body. It is important to check the ingredients when buying dark chocolate because most products sold are not what they claim. Oats are linked to a feeling of fullness and provide digestive benefits. Oats are also nutrient dense and contain good sources of fibre, carbohydrates and manganese. These cake slices tasted so good and I would recommend eating it freshly baked and warm straight from the oven.

Recipe: Dark Chocolate Oat Cake Slices (5 slices)

Ingredients

60g butter

60g sugar

1 egg

50g self raising flour

25g oats

2 blocks dark chocolate, grated

Method

  • Preheat the oven to gas mark 6 and line a loaf tin with baking paper.
  • Cream the butter and sugar together in a bowl and mix in the egg.
  • Next add the flour, oats and grated chocolate.
  • Combine everything in a bowl and place in the tin, bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes until fully cooked. Leave to cool before serving.
