Oats

High in protein, fiber and anti-oxidents, there isn't a much cheaper and easier way to look after your health than to incorporate oats into your diet. I quite often think my scales are wrong when I weigh these out (maybe they are!) as you will get a lot for a very small amount of money.

Chocolate porridge!

 

Makes it much more appealing for kids (and adults!) and is a good way to have a better start to day than sugary breakfast cereals.

 

Here is just 1 tspoon of cacao powder added in with mashed banana as a natural sweetener and a wee bit of peanut butter (if you like it that is).

Oat Bread

 

A loaf of bread made out of oats and yoghurt??! This is the easiest bread in world to make (probably). No kneading or rising and complicated things. 

 

Ingredients
1 pot of natural yoghurt (500g tub)

Oats (enough to refill your yoghurt tub 1 and 3/4 times)

1 teaspoon of salt

1 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda

butter or similar for greasing bread tin

seeds (optional)

1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees.

2. Tip out your yoghurt into a large bowl then wash and dry your yoghurt pot.

3. Fill your pot 1 and 3/4 times and add to the yoghurt.

4. Add in your bicarbonate of soda, salt and any seeds you want to add and mix really well.

5. Grease a bread tin and then put your mix in the tin, firm over but not too much. 

6. Scatter on some more seeds on top.

7. Cook for about 35-40 minutes until the top is browned.

8. Let the bread sit in it's tin for at least 30 mins or so then put out onto a baking tray to cool completely.
