This recipe takes about 30 to 35 minutes to make. Serves 2.
• 1 cup of oatmeal
• 1 banana, sliced
• Half a cup of berries
• ¼ cup of walnuts
• Handful of raisins
• 2 tbsps of cinnamon
• Maple syrup
Preheat the oven to 180C.
In a bowl, soak the oats in boiling hot water. Sit for 10 minutes.
Chop up the walnuts.
Once the oats have softened, add half of the banana, cinnamon, blueberries, maple syrup, walnuts, raisins, and milk. Mix well with a spoon.
Pour the mixture into a baking dish. Spread out the top evenly. Add the rest of the sliced bananas on top.
Bake for 20 minutes.
Ideas And Tips:
• You can use a food processor to chop the walnuts, but using a knife is perfectly fine.
• This recipe is so versatile. You can mix and match whatever ingredients you want. Instead of walnuts, you can use almonds, peanuts or pecans. Aside from raisins, you can add chopped dates or assorted dried fruit.
• Berries are extremely great sources of vitamins and antioxidants. Try adding some strawberries, blackberries, and raspberries into the mix.
• Instead of almond milk, you can use soy, coconut or low-fat milk. For a hint of tang, why not throw in some plain yogurt too?
• For those with a sweet tooth, you can also use honey. For an added crunch, sprinkle some brown sugar on top.
• Once the oats and the rest of the ingredients have been mixed, you can serve it as it is. Baking brings out the flavors but at this stage, you can eat it or store it as it is.
