Can you make this the night before and reheat? 40 mins seems a loooooong time to wait for breakfast XD

    Hi Abi, yes you can make the night before! You can reheat them from chilled or frozen. Just pop them in the microwave and heat until they are hot all the way through. Hope that helps!

How can I make this egg free?

Reply

    HollyMonday 6th July 2020

    Hey Fiona, it’s not something we have ever tried but you could try substituting the egg for mashed banana or there is a vegan egg substitute made with flax seed which you can find via a search engine, but this is not something we have ever tested. We do have a number of overnight oat recipes that are egg free which you could try as an alternative such as this Apple and Custard version: https://pinchofnom.com/recipes/apple-and-custard-overnight-oats/

Looks yummy. Just trying to work out how these would be 3 WW points on purple plan. All the ingredients look to be 0 points?

Hi, just wondering about the texture of this after its cooked. Would it be dry enough to cut into slices or is it more of a eat with a spoon straight from the dish kind of outcome?

Lucy SmithSunday 19th August 2018

Sorry for being a div – is this three quarters of a tablespoon of sweetener or 3 to 4 tbsps?

Thanks

I tried this for breakfast today. The mix, before adding the eggs, was really tasty so it looked promising. Unfortunately, after the 40 mins, the middle of the cake doesn’t look like a cake at all. It’s all wet. Would this improve if I only use 1 egg next time (as you mention if we want it drier to only use 1 egg)?

My recipe never rose? Any ideas why? Came out as flat as it went in!

Can I replace Sukrin with Stevia and how would the quantities compare as Stevia is more like a powder

ZoëFriday 19th January 2018

I have just tried baked oats for the first time this morning and I’m in love!

I followed the recipe (except mixed spice because I don’t have any) and Carrot Cake Baked Oats are simply yummy, I’ll be trying them out in muffin form and in the other variations too. Thank you so much for a delicious recipe!

Hi. This looks great, thank you! I tried the carrot cupcakes and they were yummy. Do you need to squeeze the moisture out of the carrots?
