Baked Protein Oats (Vegan, Gluten Free, Dairy Free)

We all know I’m addicted to oats by now and I’m well aware that you are getting sick of porridge recipes so I thought I’d mix things up by sharing a different kind of oats recipe.

I absolutely loved baked oats as they have a cake-like texture and can be eaten hot or cold. I’ve added protein to the recipe as it helps to keep me fuller for longer and adds a delicious flavour so there is no need for sweetener.

I love to eat my oats straight out of the oven with a drizzle of nut butter or cold the next day with a dollop of yoghurt and berry compote.

BAKED PROTEIN OATS  (serves 1)

Ingredients

  • 40g Oats (gluten free if you are coeliac)
  • 30g Vegan protein powder (or 35g whey)
  • 1 heaped tsp Cacao/cocoa powder
  • 150ml Oat milk ( or other milk of choice)
  • 1 banana 1/2 mashed, 1/2 sliced
  • 1/2 tsp Baking powder
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup (optional)
  • 1 handful frozen berries (optional)
  • Toppings: 1tbsp nut butter, 1tbsp coconut/greek yoghurt, 1tsp maple syrup, berry compote, drizzle of chocshot

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  2. In a bowl mix the oats, protein powder, milk, mashed banana, maple syrup, baking powder, cacao and berries (if using). Make sure they are well combined.
  3. Grease or line a small ovenproof dish and transfer the mixture from the bowl. Put the sliced banana on top of the oats.
  4. Place the oats in the oven, being careful not to spill any, and bake for 25-30 minutes.
  5. Once cooked remove from the oven and either transfer the oats to a plate if eating straight away and top with your favourite toppings. You can also eat them from the dish but be sure not to burn yourself.
  6. If you plan to eat the oats the next day, leave to cool and place in the fridge overnight.
