Apple & Berry Gooey Baked Oats Macros
  • 150g  Low fat natural yoghurt (eg. Alpro)
  • 150g  Unsweetened Almond milk
  • 100g  Blackberries
  • 60g  Oats
  • 30g  Whey protein powder (low carb, vanilla flav.)
  • 20g  Prunes (stoned)
  • 15g  Dark Chocolate (85% cocoa, chips/chopped)
  • 1  Egg (medium size)
  • 1  Apple (medium size, peeled, cored & diced)
  • 1/2  Banana (medium size, chopped)
  • Pinch of baking powder, salt, sweetener and cinnamon
  • Small amount of butter/coconut oil for greasing

Method

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 200°C (180°C for fan assisted)
  2. Get the egg, almond milk, protein powder, baking powder, salt, sweetener and cinnamon into a mixing bowl and whisk it up until completely blended.
  3. Add your apple, oats, blackberries, banana, prunes and chocolate to your blended mix.
  4. Transfer the combined ingredients to a small greased loaf tin (the mix should be a couple of inches deep in the tin).
  5. Whack it in the oven for 25-30mins until it is golden brown on top with a spongey feel when pressed.
  6. Remove it from the oven and allow it to cool before removing it from the tin. Take care not to leave it near an open window; everyone knows from cartoons that a freshly baked treat never lasts that long near a window.
  7. Once it has cooled right down, wrap it and stick it in the fridge ready for breakfast the next day.
  8. Serve it up with the natural yoghurt and a sprinkling of cinnamon.
