I'm constantly thinking of ideas to bake something healthier. I started using more applesauce, bananas, honey as natural sweeteners, reduce sugar and butter amounts in my baked goods. Actually I just created a recipe of a totally healthy cake which doesn't contain any butter or oil and just a small amount of sugar and flour. I hope I will post the recipe soon. However, now about this oatmeal bake. It is one of these healthy breakfast which inspired me to bake more and more from oats, honey, berries and fruits. This oatmeal bake has become one of my favourite breakfast. To be honest, I ate it all the same day I made it. Terrible. But it's not that bad as it sounds! Because I definitely consider it guilt-free. What is more, it reminds me of summer so much! I don't remember when I last baked with strawberries. When their smell started coming out of the oven, it really felt like spring is almost here! And really, time will pass so quickly and we will indulge in warm sunshine and summer breeze again. Can't wait!/span/spanbr /ibspan style="font-size: small;"spanbr //span/span/b/ispan style="font-size: small;"spanibStrawberry & Banana Oatmeal Bake/b/i/span/spanbr /span style="font-size: small;"span1 cup quick cooking oats/span/spanbr /span style="font-size: small;"span1 tbsp brown sugar + span style="font-size: small;"2/span tbsp honey (or add a little more if you like it sweeter)/span/spanbr /span style="font-size: small;"span1/2 teaspoon baking powder/span/spanbr /span style="font-size: small;"span1 tbsp grated orange zest/span/spanbr /span style="font-size: small;"span1/4 teaspoon spice (I used cinnamon, cloves, cardamon)/span/spanbr /span style="font-size: small;"span1/2 tsp salt/span/spanbr /span style="font-size: small;"span1/2 cup sliced strawberries/span/spanbr /span style="font-size: small;"spanA handful of black currants (optional) /span/spanbr /span style="font-size: small;"span1 cup milk /span/spanbr /span style="font-size: small;"span1 egg/span/spanbr /span style="font-size: small;"span1 tbsp butter, melted/span/spanbr /span style="font-size: small;"span1/2 ripe banana, peeled, cut in slices /span/spanbr /span style="font-size: small;"span(I also added a handful of black currants) /span/spanbr /span style="font-size: small;"spanbr //span/spanspan style="font-size: small;"span1) Preheat oven to 190°C.
