Easy Cherry & Banana Baked Oats

These Easy Cherry & Banana Baked Oats are one of my all time FAVOURITE breakfasts!

If you’re looking for ways to spice up your mornings a little, this is the perfect recipe for you! I find I can easily get sick of monotonous porridge and oatmeal bowls, so it’s important to switch up your meals to keep those mornings delicious! Plus, baking your oats literally makes them taste like hot, cakey dessert.. and who doesn’t like dessert?

As the mornings get a little darker and cooler, these hot and fudgy baked oats make for the most comforting, warming breakfast. As well as packing in tonnes of fibre, healthy fats and antioxidants!

I absolutely love playing around with toppings for my Baked Oats. They’re delicious with thick coconut yoghurt, peanut butter (it goes all ‘melty’ into the hot oats!) coconut shreds, maple syrup.. the list is endless! I’ve listed a few ideas in the ingredients list so you can get creative.
