Most mornings I have a big ole’ bowl of oats, to keep things exciting I like to experiment with flavours. In the past I’ve done lemon curd, red velvet, mocha, chocolate orange and so on. So of course I had to create some festive oats. I could have stuck to your traditional cinnamon oats but no, I had a better idea…
I could eat mince pies for breakfast lunch and dinner. So why the heck not? I had the genius idea of incorporating the mince meat mixture into my oats. Damn it didn’t fail to please.
You’ll probably find you’ll have all the ingredients for this bake…
? 40g oats
? 40g fat free Greek yoghurt
? 30g mince meat
? 5g chia seed (optional)
? 1 egg
? 1 tsp mixed spice
? 1/4 tsp baking powder
? 50ml water
Pre-heat the oven to gas mark 6
In a bowl mix together all ingredients apart from the mince meat. It should be quite wet
Select a tin of your choice. I have this sweet little heart one which I like to use for my baked oats.
Spray tin with fry light or grease with butter
Pour you around 3/4 of your mixture into your tin.
Get your mince meat and place a blob in the middle of your mixture
Now add the remainder of the oat mix, ensuring all mince meat is covered. I sprinkled some cinnamon sugar on the top so that is caramelised when baking
Pop in the oven for 30 minutes.
Once done it will have puffed up a little, set in place and looks a nice golden colour.
Allow some time to cool before removing from the tin, you don’t want to burn yourself.
And there you have it your mince meat oats. Essentially you’ve created a giant mince pie for breakfast, winning!
I like to sprinkle some icing sugar over mine, makes it look that little more festive.
Tomorrow’s post is probably my most exciting post yet, I’ll be sharing with you my cruelty free gift share from my bae Anna
