Breakfast Oat Protein Bake Recipe - Hints and Tips
This oaty bake is so easy to mix by hand - no mixer required.
Because of the berries the bake might slightly collapse once it cools - cutting the larger berries up helps prevent this
Can I make this in advance?
Yes - once baked, cover and keep in the fridge for up to 3 days, and reheat in a low oven or microwave for 30 seconds.
You can even mix the batter the evening before and then stir in the berries and bake in the morning.
Using Frozen Berries
Mixed berries are a freezer staple for me. When baking with them add them last and use them from frozen, or their colour will "bleed" throughout the dish. I prefer to cut up the largest of the berries. You can, of course, use fresh berries just reduce the cooking time by 5 minutes.
How to make without scales
No scales? No problem - just grab the scoop in the tub and use that to measure.
