I really wish I had one of these today.
In fact, I may go raid the pantry and fridge to see if I still have everything to make this.
And there is no coming back. I am officially obsessed.
Last Sunday morning, I made buckwheat bakes for me and Nick for breakfast. I did a twist on this recipe, but added in fresh strawberries and used oats instead of buckwheat groats. We both loved the outcome! The bake had such great texture, and I loved the flavor of the buckwheat.
But Monday morning, when I was working from home, I wanted a bake but I didn’t want to wait 30 minutes for it. I decided to try making it in the microwave like Ashley has done before. And I also tried my own twist on it, making a triple-oat threat for breakfast.
And it was good. Really good. So good that I can’t stop thinking about these for breakfast.
If you’re like me and are rushing around in the mornings sometimes (okay, all the time), you can’t beat this for a hot breakfast. We had more micro-bakes Thursday morning (told you I’m obsessed) – I mixed the dry ingredients the night before, stirred in the wet in the morning and popped them in the microwave. These take less time to make than my normal bowl of oatmeal!
So fast and easy AND healthy. You’d never know that these were completely sugar free.
Oat flour, oat bran, and whole oats give this micro-bake a slightly sweet flavor without any added sugar.
Topped with peanut butter and cinnamon-spiced apples? Not a bad way to start your morning. Not bad at all.
