On-the-Go Oats n Apple Bites (Muffins)

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

10ml honey

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.



Overnight Oats Part 2: Choco-delite and Apple Pie!


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!  🙂

Overnight Oats with Banana and Peanut Butter

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.

With this one I usually mix it all together, but must admit, it doesn’t look very appetizing!  So I tried it this way:

Serves 2

40g raw oats
350ml plain fat free yogurt
140g banana
10ml peanut butter (no sugar variety)
5g (1 tsp) cocoa powder
2 sachets artificial sweetener (if needed – the cocoa powder can be quite bitter).  You can use honey as well, if  you prefer a more natural sweetener.

Layer in 2 glass containers:

  • 20g raw oats in each container
  • Mash bananas and divide between the two containers
  • Whipped peanut butter, cocoa powder and sweetener together and layer on top


Leave in fridge overnight and have for breakfast the next morning!  Easy peasy 🙂
