It’s no secret that I love oats. I have them for breakfast every morning so I am always looking for ways to change things up. With the cooler days creeping in I put the chefs cap on and created these banana and blueberry baked oats. A quick, easy and WARM breakfast that I can whip up in under 15 minutes. They are perfect for a cool winters morning, but even better, a great on the go brekky with minimal washing up!
The texture is similar to a fluffy muffin with a delicious crunchy top, sweet pops of blueberry and a warm toasty cinnamon flavour. Paired with a big dollop of greek yoghurt, this breakfast really does have it all.
Baking these oats in the air fryer means you don’t have to preheat the whole oven for just one single serve. If you are cooking in the airfyer you can cover the bowl with alfoil for the first 10 minutes and take the alfoil off for the remaining 5 minutes. This will even out the cooking process as the air fryer tends to cook faster than the oven.
