It’s the season of apples and what better way to use them than in a warm comforting breakfast. That breakfast being Apple and Rhubarb Baked Protein Oats. This recipe is gluten free, refined sugar free and high protein.
Oats is definitely one of my favourite breakfasts and in the summer I tend to go for overnight oats (Creamy Vanilla Chia Oats) but as soon as it gets colder I love a warm bowl of oats or even better baked oats!
My boyfriends mum grows lots of fruit and veg in her garden and this week she gave me lots of bramley apples. Ofcourse I made the obvious… apple crumble! But my second recipe using the apples was this yummy apple baked protein oats. She actually also gave me some rhubarb so I fried off some rhubarb in syrup to make a rhubarb puree to also add to the baked oats and to add to other meals in the week such as smoothies or yoghurt bowls.
Baked oats is such a great filling, healthy and nutritious breakfast with a great balance of protein, carbs and fats! Where do the fats come from?! The added flaxseed, egg and walnuts. Walnuts go so well with apple and add such a yummy crunch to the oats.
Heres what you’ll need:
- Gluten Free Oats
- Flax seed (optional)
- Baking Powder
- Mixed Spice
- Whey Protein – I used Apple Crumble and Custard whey but you could use whatever flavour you have
- Vanilla drop or extract
- Pureed fruit e.g. rhubarb, apple or banana
