Baked Chocolate & Banana Oats

Warm baked oats on an autumn morning are a real treat. We’ve added chocolate for extra indulgence and they are just lovely with baked bananas and sticky dates.

Porridge oats are a great start to the day, they are a great source of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. We love to add chopped dates to add fibre and natural sweetness.

My kids just love these baked oat pot and top them with yoghurt for an extra serving of protein.

Let us know if you try them.
