Hello there, how are you doing?
All is well here, I’ve been busy knitting jumpers, socks and creating some delicious treats in the kitchen! Today I’m going to share with you my Berry Bake recipe, I have been eating this for months now and it has become my morning snack staple, I bake it every Sunday ready for the week. I have adapted the recipe from Ben Gusto‘s Berry Baked Oatmeal recipe, I have reduced the quantity (half the recipe was still to much for me to eat in a week) so I get 5 portions (one for every work day) and increased the percentage of berries, nuts and added seeds.
- Berry Bake
- 1 3/4 cups oats
- 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
- 1 tbsp cinnamon (Sri Lankan of course!)
- 1/4 cup chopped nuts (I normally use almonds, but anything you have available will do)
- 1 cup of berries (I use a mix of strawberries, blueberries and goji berries)
- 3/4 cup of chopped prunes and dates
- 1 1/4 cups of milk
- 3/4 cup of water
- Coconut oil for greasing
- Loaf tin 9″ by 5″
Preheat the oven to 350f / 180c
First add the 1 3/4 cups of oats, 1/2 cup of seeds and 1 tbsp cinnamon into a bowl.
Chop 1/4 cup of nuts, 3/4 cup of prunes and dates and 1 cup of berries.
Add these to the bowl. (doesn’t it look pretty?!)
And mix it all together.
Grease your loaf tin (my oil of choice is coconut oil)
And tip in the mix.
Then get a jug and mix together 1 1/4 cup of milk and 3/4 cup of water.
Pour this into the loaf tin and mix it with a spoon to make sure the liquid gets to the bottom.
Place in the oven and bake for 45 minutes.
When the Berry Bake is ready, it will be golden on top and firm in the middle.
I leave it to cool in the tin, cover with a cloth and keep in the fridge, then cut off a piece every morning to take with me to work.
It’s also delicious warm straight out of the oven!!
I hope you enjoy this as much as I do, I need to go out and buy some strawberries now so I can make this weeks bake!
Take care and see you soon,
