Baked Oatmeal Loaf

Baked oatmeal loaf

Oats are such a fabulous baking item that they can be used in so many ways; this recipe is one of my favourite ways of eating them. This loaf is the easiest thing to make and it feels like a dessert for breakfast, but it is just as healthy as regular porridge. It is the perfect dish to have for a weekend brunch when you have friends round, as it is much easier than say muffins and it feels more special.

I have become addicted to this breakfast and have got into the routine of making a loaf in the evening when the oven is already on. I let it cool and leave it in the fridge until morning when I cut two slices for Will and me. I give then a blast in the microwave and, voilà, you have a breakfast treat in 30 seconds.

There is no added sugar, just sweetness from the fruits, which are still low FODMAP. The oats, flaxseed and non-dairy milk make the perfect start to the day with lots of fibre, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and omega 3

I hope you enjoy this and feel you have treated yourself.

Baked Oatmeal Loaf

Ingredients

  • 2 cups frozen mixed berries
  • 1 banana sliced into ½ cm discs
  • 4 tbs orange juice (1 large orange)
  • ½ cup ground flaxseed
  • 1 cup non-dairy milk
  • 2 cups rolled gluten-free oats
  • ¼ cup coconut flakes (or substitute for seeds/ flaked nuts)
  • Loaf Tin around 21 x 11 x 7 cm
  • * I use a dry cup measurer for all my measuring (liquid and dry)

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F).
  2. In a bowl mix all the ingredients except the coconut flakes.Pour the mixture into a slightly greased loaf tin.
  3. Place the mixture in the middle of the oven.
  4. After 30 minutes sprinkle the coconut flakes over the loaf and bake for 10 more minutes.
  5. Remove from the oven and serve. You can slice the loaf or spoon it out to plates (you can turn it out onto a plate but the coconut toppings will come off but thats ok just spoon them back on).

Serving ideas:
* It is delicious hot, warm or cold.
* You can make it in advance and have cold or microwave for breakfast.
* I love it with coconut yoghurt and sliced strawberries or blueberries.
* It is yummy with some warm milk poured over.
* If you’re feeling the need for a breakfast treat then add a dollop of lemon curd.
