LISA’S TIP – A cross between a cake, a gooey granola bar and a hot bowl of porridge, this oven-baked oatmeal is filling, wholesome and has just the right amount of sweetness – it’s a great alternative to a stove-top version or a Bircher muesli and perfect for when you have a group of friends over for breakfast or brunch!
Once cooked I keep this in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-5 days, popping it back into the oven for 10minutes (or into the microwave for 60 -90 seconds) to heat through before eating. You can also prepare the mix the night before and keep in the fridge (as you would overnight oats) ready to bake the next morning.
If you’re taking this “to go” then pop a portion of the baked yumminess into a container to take with you and eat it warm (from the oven or re-heated in the office microwave if you have one) or cold - especially lovely in the warmer months!
Don’t be afraid to use other types of fruit and nut in this – almonds, macadamia, pistachios and walnuts all work well as do other berries, sliced stone fruits, rhubarb or pears – let your imagination run wild!!
