Banging Baked Oats

This is a super tasty breakfast option that brings a little variety to the standard porridge. We’ve got all your macronutrient needs covered with adequate amounts protein, carbohydrates and fats. 

Adding an additional source of carbohydrates makes it a great pre workout meal also if you have a more strenuous training session planned. I’ll include calorie calculations with and without the banana. 

If you’re not having to be too regimented with your calories, I’d also recommend getting a little creative and try including different berries, seeds and nuts for example. 

Ingredients:

  • 45g plain unprocessed oats
  • 90ml of semi skimmed milk
  • 25g scoop of whey protein (or protein source of choice, note possible variations in calories)
  • 1 tbsp of unsweetened peanut butter
  • 1 medium banana (optional)
  • Pinch of sea salt

Method:

  • Preheat oven to 170 degrees
  • If using banana, mash it using fork or processor and combine it with oats in an oven proof bowl
  • Add milk, protein & salt. Stir ingredients till there’s an even consistency
  • Make small well in the middle of the mixture and add peanut but before covering back over with the oats mixture
  • Allow to heat for 15 minutes, allow to stand, cool down and enjoy!
