Baked Oats

Ingredients for 2 servings:

  • 30g of any nut butter (we use peanut butter)

  • 15g honey 

  • 15g dark chocolate chips or chopped dark chocolate 


  1. Preheat the oven at 180 degree celsius. 

  2. Add all your ingredients (except for the chocolate chips) into a food processor and blitz until well combined (you can also use a hand blender, if it is powerful enough to blitz oats). Add your chocolate chips and give it a good stir. 

  3. Now transfer your butter into a small cake tin or 2 ramekins. Whatever you use, make sure to fill them up just until half way, as they will rise up in the oven. 

  4. Add a few more chocolate chips on top (why not!). We always like to cover the tin with a piece of foil to avoid the top overcooking/burning.

  5. Bake at 180C for 25 minutes. All ovens are different, so always check with a toothpick to make sure it comes out clean, if it does you know it’s ready.
