Ingredient Tips

∆ Oat selection: Both rolled and quick oats are suitable. Steel-cut oats won’t blend to the desired texture you’ll need for this recipe.

∆ Honey alternative: Swap out the honey for maple syrup or sugar but add one extra tablespoon of milk in its replacement.

∆ Banana alternative: Replace the banana with ½ cup of milk.

∆ Vegan alternative: Replace the egg with a flax egg. You may not see the oats rise as much, but it’ll still be delicious!

Other Tips – Bake Better! 

∆ Use a blender instead of trying to stir or mix the ingredients manually. Even if you’re making a large batch, it’ll be much more enjoyable mixing a small blender-full 2-3 times than struggling by hand. 

∆ Cooking times and temperatures: Check them frequently when baking and turn down the temp if required. Overcooking will result in unpleasantly dry oats.

∆ Overmixed? No problem – No gluten means you can’t overmix this batter, even after adding your flavour selection. Blend it up as much as possible for a smooth, consistent texture.

∆ If you’re fortunate enough to have leftovers, they can be refrigerated. Eat them cold instead of reheating to prevent them from being too dry.
