Baked/Microwave Oatbran…

Baked oats are seen everywhere on social media and are typically made with porridge oats however we have never liked using oats as the texture is just too wet and eggy for our liking so we use Oatbran. Also make sure you get oatbran and not oatmeal as these are 2 different ingredients.

You can cook these in both the microwave and the oven depending how long you have in the mornings to prepare your breakfast, of course these can also be enjoyed as a yummy dessert and have often been seen on our social media featuring ice cream or custard.

Some recommended items from our kitchen…

  • Silicone whisks in varying sizes, much prefer silicone to metal as it rusts.
  • Double sided dry and liquid measuring spoons for times when you need to measure both liquid and dry ingredients.
  • Mixing bowls are always wanted in this household and these stackable ones save so much space in our cupboards.
  • These little dishes are great for baked oats, cakes etc and also for doing just one portion of casserole, shepherds pie, chilli etc if you are cooking for one.
  • These dishes are also great for baked oats, plus other sizes for doing roasts, cottage pies and more.
  • 4″ loose bottom springform cake tins.
  • Pyrex pudding bowls suitable for microwaves and ovens, we use these for our microwave oatbran so they come out light and airy.
