TWC’s baked oatmeal is the best thing since sliced bread. Not only is it filling and delicious, but it’s packed with energy, making it the perfect snack before any long and tiring bike ride.
The Goji berries and apple sauce work so well with the oats, giving a rich fruity taste. We had to refrain from eating the whole bowl even before it went into the oven…Ingredients:
- 2 cups oats (one cup = 30grams)
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans
- 1/3 cup maple syrup
- 1/4 cup goji berries
- 1/2 cup applesauce
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1-2 tbsp of milk
Preheat the oven to 180°C/Gas mark 4.
Mix all the ingredients together in a large mixing bowl.
Pour the mixture into small cake cases on a baking tray/baking cake tray.
Bake in the oven for 15 minutes.The healthy bit:
