Healthy Baked Oats Recipe

recipes

Hey guys, welcome back! It’s been a while since I posted a new recipe so here is my latest obsession! Protein baked oats that take less than 10 mins, can be made in the microwave, and taste like banana bread. So here’s how you can make it…

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 scoop protein powder (I use Women’s Best Vegan Vanilla Protein)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 tsp of cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • Liquid Sweetener (I use WB’s sugar free syrup)
  • Toppings (optional)

STEPS

  1. Combine your oats, egg, almond milk, banana, protein powder, cinnamon, and baking powder in a blender until smooth.
  2. Pour the batter into a large mug (the batter shouldn’t exceed 3/4 of the mug)
  3. Cook in the microwave for 3 mins (depending on the level of your microwave) or you can also bake it in a muffin tin in the oven for 5-10 mins.
  4. Allow to cool, drizzle with sweetener of choice and top with anything you like. I chose almond butter, but you can also opt for berries anything you like.

I hope you enjoy this quick recipe, let me know down in the comments what you’d like to see next and please like and follow for more, xoxo.

Breakfast Oatmeal Cookies

healthy living

These almond oatmeal cookies are a quick healthy bake and are great for weight loss. They are rather filling which is why this recipe yields about 8 cookies but you can easily double it. They are also lower in calories than my usual cookie recipes because they are made with oat flour rather than regular gluten free flour but feel free to check those out as well. More Cookie recipes here.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar / sugar substitute
  • 2 cups oats
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp almond flakes + pumpkin seeds

STEPS

  1. Combine eggs, sugar, and spices.
  2. Blend the oats coarsely into oat flour and add the baking powder.
  3. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet.
  4. Form dough balls and spread each one on a baking sheet. Press the almonds and pumpkin seeds into the cookie, you can also add raisins.
  5. Bake for 15 mins at 180°C until golden. Allow to cool down and store in an airtight container.

So that’s the quick recipe for this week. Thank you for reading, please like, share and comment if you’d like to try this recipe out and follow for more quick ideas like this one, xoxo.

Healthy Fruit Loaf

recipes

Hey guys, welcome back to the blog, in this post I’m sharing a quick recipe for a gluten free fruit cake or loaf. This was pretty easy to make and should work with many adaptations so feel free to tweak it to your tastes. I am still experimenting with different flavours and ingredient combinations and I will be sharing those as well. If you have any gluten, dairy free recipes you’d like to see, please let me know down in the comments. So let’s get right into it…

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups gf flour
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar/ erythritol sugar substitute
  • 1/4-1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup fruit mix (raisins, dried orange)
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 cup seeds/nuts (optional)
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice & zest

STEPS

  1. Combine the flours, sugar and spices in a bowl.
  2. Then whisk the eggs and milk together and combine with the dry ingredients until well combined.
  3. You may need to adjust the flour/milk ratio depending on the type of gluten free you’re using. I used a local blend but you will want a thick cake batter texture.
  4. Fold in the fruit into the batter and pour into your mould, you can also add extra nuts/seeds as toppings toppings, I usually add pumpkin seeds.
  5. Bake at 180ºC for 20-25 mins or until a skewer comes out clean.

You can store this up to two weeks in the fridge, I usually leave the loaf whole and cut it when serving. This recipe and other variations will be available in the ebook where I will share more tips on healthy gluten and dairy free baking. Thank you for reading, I hope you try out this recipe and please like and follow for more quick recipes xoxo.
