Can you use frozen fruit for this recipe?

Reply

    SharonFriday 31st July 2020

    Hi Tracey, we haven’t tried this but because frozen fruit is wetter, you may find that when you stir it into the other ingredients in step 1, the mixture may turn purple.If you decide to try this with frozen fruit, don’t let it defrost first, just pop it in frozen. If you try this, let us know how it went! Thanks for getting in touch.

Can you used skimmed milk instead of yoghurt for baked oats please?

Reply

    HollyMonday 6th July 2020

    Hey Bernadette, it’s not something we have tried but it should work. Use the 2 egg option to make it stiffer once baked and add a little milk at a time until the right consistency is reached. Hope that helps let us know how you get on!

Would you be able to microwave it to reheat?

Reply

    HollyMonday 18th May 2020

    Hey, to reheat the Lemon and Blueberry Baked Oats from chilled: Place in a microwave proof container with loosely fitting lid and heat for 4-7 minutes until piping hot. Or from frozen: Allow to defrost, and heat covered in the microwave for 3-5 minutes, leave to stand for a minute and then cook for a further 3-4 minutes.
