What Do Baked Oats Taste Like?

Baked oats are hard to describe – the texture is quite dense, not light and airy like a cake would be, but tasty nonetheless! I think I prefer them with some extra flavours added as the basic recipe can taste not unlike banana bread – not that banana bread is a bad thing of course!

Baked Oats – Different Flavours

  • Apple, Raisin and Cinnamon – grate half an apple, 1 tbsp raisins and 1 tsp cinnamon and stir into the batter after blending but before baking.
  • Chocolate Chip – add 1 tbsp of cocoa powder and blend with the other ingredients, add 1 tbsp chocolate chips to the batter after blending but before baking.
  • Blueberry and Vanilla – add 1 tsp of vanilla essence and blend with the other ingredients, add 1 tbsp blueberries to the batter after blending, but before baking.
  • Ham and Cheese – add 1 slice of cooked ham, chopped (or 1 rasher of cooked bacon, chopped), and 1 tbsp grated cheese to the blended batter, before baking.

Baked oats will last in the fridge for up to a week, or 2 days in an airtight container at room temperature. They can be reheated in the oven or microwave. Alternatively, you can freeze them for up to three months. Simply defrost overnight in the fridge and heat as required.
