On-the-Go Oats n Apple Bites
100g raw oats
2 TBS wholewheat flour
1 heaped teaspoon baking powder
250ml apple sauce (home made – cook 500g apples, with a generous sprinkling of cinnamon in about 500ml water until soft and water is reduced, you will use about 1/2 of this. Store brought apple sauce is also okay, just check the added sugar content)
125ml fat free milk
A pinch of salt
Mix all ingredients together.
Pour in muffin pan and bake in pre-heated oven at 180C for 25 – 30 minutes. I topped it with chopped apple.
Makes 8 ‘muffins’ – about 1 CC, ¼ fruit and ¼ milk each.
Can be frozen. Handy as ‘grab and go’ snacks, picnic treats, etc.
It smelled and look so yummy, our puggie boy – Gorgeous George tried to convince me to share using some emotional blackmail 🙂 I was strong enough to resist it! 😀
Add-in suggestions (optional): Nuts, raisins, cranberries, mashed banana (use less apple sauce), cinnamon, nutmeg, etc.
Yes, as you know – I love my overnight oats! Quick, convenient, no fuss and VERY tasty!
I tried some new combinations:
Choco-delite: 20g raw oats, 175ml plain fat free yogurt, 1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder, stevia sweetener to taste. Tip – great yogurt mix-in for those days when you are craving something decadent and sweet!
Apple Pie: 20g raw oats, 175ml plain fat free yogurt, 3 Tbsp Apple Pie Sauce (recipe here https://tastehealthyum.wordpress.com/2015/01/19/sugar-free-apple-pie-sauce/)
Try it! You must! 🙂
Another firm favourite – overnight oats 🙂 Haven’t tried it before? It is easy, convenient and delicious.
The basics are pretty straight-forward – raw oats with yogurt or milk, left overnight in the fridge – ready for breakfast! No cooking required! 🙂
You can add fruit, nuts, berries, honey and spices as well – very versatile indeed! 🙂 I will post more ideas at a later stage!
I usually layer the ingredients in a container (looks lovely in glass bottles) – raw oats first, then milk/yogurt, then fruit/nuts, etc.
This time I blended it all together – it works well either way!
40g raw oats
350ml plain fat free yogurt
10ml peanut butter (no sugar variety)
5g (1 tsp) cocoa powder
2 sachets artificial sweetener (if needed – the cocoa powder can be quite bitter)
Blend all the ingredients together, scoop into 2 containers and leave overnight in the fridge. And enjoy the next morning!
