Happy Tuesday! I'm back with another baked oats recipe for you this week. I hopped on this trend a little late, and I totally regret it, they are super easy, and taste like a cake/brownie. I also love baked oats, because they are super filling, which I usually struggle with getting hungry after breakfast. As I am eating more and more baked oats, I am truly amazed at the endless flavor options, like, you can create pretty much any dessert in baked oats form. I posted my chocolate peanut butter banana baked oats a while back on instagram, and got a ton of saves, so I am glad you guys like them as well, because expect more!
I filled these baked oats with my 2 Ingredient Caramel , and it worked perfectly. The caramel melted in the oats. I think next time I'm gonna add a piece of chocolate to the caramel center just to give it a little something extra. This baked oats recipe is single serve, but you could easily make this recipe for more people in a larger baking dish, and I am sure it would come out just as well.
Of course my baked oats wouldn't be complete without my absolute favorite protein blend; Plant Fusion. If you've been following me for awhile, you know that I am absolutely hooked on Plant Fusion, there seriously is not a single product of theirs that I am not obsessed with. One of my favorites from them is their Protein + Fiber. This product is great because it supports healthy inflammatory response, improves gut health, and helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels. I also love Plant Fusion so much is that you can truly trust all their products, because they're all made with clean ingredients, and is always vegan.
I think this product in specific is perfect for baked oats, because it has extra fiber, which helps the oats to develop more of a cake like texture, and adds flavor and sweetness to the oats. I really can not make baked oats without it. I have a code for 25% off "NATURALVEGAN" this is the best discount out there, so I highly encourage you to try out their products. You can also get 2 sampler products with every purchase! You can find their website here.
This product is also the main factor in this recipe that helps keep me fuller for longer periods of times. When I eat regular oats, I find myself getting hungry about 3 hours after eating, but I have found when I eat my oats this way I am full even into lunch. I recommend this recipe for anyone who is looking for a beginner vegan meal plan, because it is so simple and filling. I always find that the best vegan meal plan is one that isn't calorie focused, it's ingredient focused. All this food talk has got me ready to share the recipe with you!
