Banana & Blueberry Baked Oats – 5sp

Banana & Blueberry Baked Oats – 5sp

I feel like maybe I just haven’t been doing them right as every YouTuber out there seems to think they’re the best thing since sliced bread but I just cannot for the life of me get on board with overnight oats. To me they are just a cold, milky mush that isn’t appealing in the slightest!

However, that failure has luckily something that IS inordinately appealing to me and that fellow breakfast lovers, is baked oats. Kind of a cross between porridge and flapjack they are filling, delicious and (best of all) warm!

One thing to note – I bloody LOVE cinnamon. I mean I really love the stuff and I love a lot of it. If you aren’t such a fan then just half the amount or even omit it all together if you really detest it that much (you’re missing out I promise you)

Serves 1


  • 43g rolled oats
  • Big handful blueberries
  • 1 banana
  • Pinch baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup (I use this low cal one from Clarks)
  • 35ml skimmed milk
  • 35ml water
  • 1 tsp cinammon


  1. In a bowl mash your banana (leave a few slices for the topping) and add the milk, water and maple syrup. Stir well until combined and relatively smooth
  2. Add the oats, blueberries, cinnamon and baking powder and mix well
  3. Pour into a small baking dish and dot a few slices of banana over the top
  4. Bake for 15-20 mins until the oats are golden brown and the blueberries are oozy
  5. Serve with a nice big dollop of (0sp!) fat free yoghurt
