Loaded Baked Oats

A breakfast switcharoo today. Felt like something warm after all these grey days. These baked oats hit the spot. I had some overnight oats in the fridge (just 1 cup of oats mixed with 2 cups coconut milk + chia) and this morning I just mixed those up with some banana, sunflower seeds, raspberries and green apple. Baked at 400 for about 25 minutes (good time to shower and get dressed) and VOILA! A quick drizzle of almond butter and a dab of raw honey = perfection! Oats are an amazing source of fibre (and yes, even contain protein) so this kind of breakfast really “sticks to your ribs” and keeps you satisfied through the morning.

    This looks like a great idea, I would use seeds instead of nuts, and apples oatmeal and cinnamon is like dessert. Thanks for breakfast ideas 🙂
