Move over feta pasta, there’s a new viral trend propping up the internet. If you’re partial to the idea of cake for breakfast, then this is the trend for you. Stand down breakfast baked oats, because #TikTok #bakedoats are here...

The basic principal of the #TikTok #bakedoats trend is that if you blitz the oats to a flour-like powder instead of using them whole, the resultant texture is much finer – essentially less flake, more cake! What’s more, as the basic recipe contains no refined sugar or fat, they’re also pretty healthy too*.

Once you have nailed the basic recipe, you can pimp them with any extra ingredients and toppings you like. After a day’s blitzing in the test kitchen, we can report that these really do work and, what’s more, are pretty delicious. Here are our some of our favourite flavour combos…

*Obviously any chocolate, caramel sauce, buttercream, sugar sprinkles etc you add will significantly reduce this claim!

Basic baked oats

To make the basic recipe, preheat the oven to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas 4. Blitz 40g rolled oats with ½ tsp baking powder, 2 tsp maple syrup, 1 egg and 1 small or ½ large banana in a high-speed blender until you’ve really broken down the oats.

You should have a smooth liquid with no lumps or flakes in it. Pour into a ramekin or a mini pie dish and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until well risen and a skewer comes out clean when inserted. Enjoy warm from the oven. You can also make these in muffin cases if you prefer.

The twists...

1. Blueberry & lemon

Follow the basic recipe as above, stirring in 50g fresh blueberries and the zest of ½ lemon after you have finished blitzing the mixture. Pour into your dish and bake as above. Drizzle with a little extra maple to finish if you like.

2. Raspberry & coconut

Mix 1½ tbsp desiccated coconut with 1 tbsp of milk to slightly soften the coconut. Follow the basic recipe, adding in the coconut and milk before blitzing your mixture. Stir through 50g fresh raspberries before pouring into your dish and baking as above. Drizzle with a little extra maple to finish if you like.

3. Chocolate

Follow the basic recipe, adding 1 tbsp cocoa powder to the blender with all the other ingredients. Chop approximately 20g dark chocolate into chunks. Stir two thirds through the mixture and pour into your dish. Scatter the remaining chips over the top and bake as above.

4. Carrot cake

Follow the basic recipe, adding 1 tsp mixed spice to the blender with all the other ingredients. Stir through 25g grated carrot and 25g raisins, pour the mixture into your dish and bake as above. While the oats are baking, mix 20g cream cheese with 1 tsp icing sugar and a splash of milk until you have a pourable consistency. When the oats are baked, remove from the oven, allow to cool slightly and drizzle with the cream cheese icing. 

5. PBJ

 

Follow the basic recipe, adding 1 tbsp peanut butter to the blender with all the other ingredients. Pour the mixture into your dish and then dot in 1 tbsp of strawberry jam, swirling it through the mix with the tip of a knife. Bake as above.
