Looking for something new for a breakfast idea? This recipe is an easy to make and healthy option. The best thing is that you can alter it and make it to suit your own tastes. Great for breakfast for the whole family and the kids, as well as great to pack it in lunch boxes. There is the option to make a double batch, portion and freeze half and refrigerate the other half.
3 cups of oats ( I prefer spelt oats)
2 green apples
2 large ripe bananas
1 cup berries (I use frozen mixed berries, you can choose blueberries, raspberries or a Mix)
3 tbps virgin, organic coconut oil
2 tbps chia seeds (or use any other seeds or chopped nuts)
1 tbps organic cinnamon
Smush up the banana and whisk in the eggs and coconut oil in a large mixing bowl.
Chuck in the oats, mix it up well and let it sit for a bit while you keep going.
Grate the apple as chunky as you can. I like to do it on the julienne setting of my mandolin. Leave the skin on!
Add the apple, cinnamon, chia and berries. This is where I like to get messy and use my hands to mix it all in really well.
Chuck it all in a slice tin that you have lined with non-toxic baking paper.
Into the oven and cook for about 30 minutes at 180 degrees celsius (a medium oven).
Cool down on a wire rack. Slice with a bread knife.
It is nice served warm with some yoghurt on top (or for the dairy-free, use cashew cream or coconut yoghurt) and more fresh or frozen berries.
It will keep in the fridge, in a sealed container for about three days.
Thermomix Friendly: Chop the apple in the thermy and set aside (don’t make it mushy or the texture of the slice will be weird). Whizz up the bananas, egg and coconut oil all together – about speed 4 for a few seconds. Add remaining ingredients and mix in, reverse, speed soft, until it’s well combined. Be very gentle, you want a nice texture.
