Baked Almond and blueberry Oatmeal
I know you guys love my baked proat recipes which means you’re going to love this recipe even more; it’s simple, tasty and the perfect meal prep option this January.
I have teamed up with innocent to bring this recipe using their brand new almond drink that has ONLY 3 ingredients; almonds, spring water and a pinch of sea salt. Nothing added and nothing taken away and that’s why it’s now my dairy free almond of choice. This baked oatmeal itself is crunchy on the top with bursts of sweet blueberry and a soft chewy centre so the only thing I will say is if it’s for meal prep section that oven dish up straight away, I managed to eat 3 portions one Sunday. I eat mine cold however if you have a facility to heat up the oatmeal at work it would definitely shake off the cold morning and be a little comfort at the office desk. NOTE; This is suitable for freezing.
The innocent dairy free almond also makes a great base for a delicious creamy porridge or a morning smoothie.
The range is currently stocked by Dunnes Stores, Tesco, selected EuroSpar, along with select Fresh and Donnybrook Fair outlets.
