Spiced Apple and Raisin Oatmeal Bake

I am literally drooling over this new breakfast creation. Warming cinnamon with sweet apple and juicy raisins, this is just like having a slice of ‘naughty’ pie from the local cafe, without the guilt! Bake ahead for a nutritionally balanced breakfast on-the-go!

  • 1 tablespoon natural vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup Natvia (or natural sweetener of choice)

  4. In another bowl, combine remaining ingredients with diced apple – but exclude apple slices.
  5. Spray a large baking dish with a little oil, then pour in dry ingredients.

If apples and sultanas aren’t your thing, substitute for raspberries and slices of banana.
Toast under grill for 5 minutes and serve warm with fresh greek yogurt on a cold winters morning.
Add in ¼ cup dark chocolate chips, cacao nibs or carob chips (optional) before baking for the kids.

    1. Hey Mel! You can make an egg replacement with a chia seeds or flax seeds and water. For each egg, combine 1 tablespoon of ground flax or chia seed (measure after grinding) with 3 tablespoons of water. Stir well, and place in the fridge to set for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, the result should be a sticky egg-like substitute.
