Baked Banana, Blueberry and Raisin Oatmeal

This was an old favourite of mine that we’ve recently revamped for you guys. I know baked oatmeal is a bit unusual but it’s amazing, I couldn’t recommend it more highly! I love the juicy blueberries that explode when you bite into them and the sweet hints of cinnamon.

OVERVIEW

Serves: 2

Difficulty: easy

Ingredients:

50g oats, 1/2 cup

35g fresh blueberries, 1/2 cup

50g walnuts, 1/2 cup

2 ripe bananas

30g sunflower seeds, 1/4 cup

70g raisins, 1/2 cup

5 tablespoons almond milk

2 teaspoons of cinnamon

2 tablespoons maple syrup

Method:

Preheat oven to 180c, fan setting.

Place the oats in a bowl and cover with boiling water, just so the top is covered – soak for 10 minutes, until soft.

While the oats are soaking, mash one of the bananas and slice the other into pieces, crush the walnuts into bite-sized chunks.

Once the oats have absorbed the water and become soft, stir through the mashed banana, chopped walnuts, maple syrup, cinnamon, blueberries, sunflower seeds, almond milk and raisins. Transfer the mixture to a baking dish and place the pieces of sliced banana on top.

Cook for 20 minutes, until golden. This oatmeal is best enjoyed warm, straight from the oven.
