Let’s talk food trends!
I’m not one to try the newest trends. I prefer to stand on the sidelines and see if something sticks around. That for me is telling to discern whether something is worth trying! The baked oat trend, absolutely worth your time! I had seen endless videos and felt that something so easy couldn’t be impactful with texture and flavor.
However, if you pack it on like this recipe, it completely delivers!
oats are usually thrown in a bowl with milk and microwaved. This can make the oats soup or dried out, but most times it’s just underwhelming. By taking the oats and throwing them in a blender, you get a smoother texture. To get a little rise out of the oats and give it more of a cake like texture, baking powder is used. The combination of blending and baking powder really yields a fun result.
What’s great about this recipe? Everything! It’s quick, easy, affordable, packs a tahini flavor with tons of stevia sweetened chocolate chips, packs protein and fiber, has notes of salt, it’s gluten free, has low sugar, is free from refined sugar, requires a few extra steps but can easily be done on the fly for breakfast, can be doubled to make larger quantities, you can switch up the toppings and you can even switch out the tahini if desired, the choice is yours!
