In 2021, TikTok seems to be the new place to find the latest recipe trends. One trending recipe that has caught our attention is baked oats. By baking the oats, you create more of a cake-like mixture, making them fluffy and taste almost like a dessert, rather than your average cereal. A lot of the trending baked oat recipes are extremely high in refined sugar and saturated fat.

This dietitian-approved breakfast recipe has less than 10g of sugar per 100g and less than 3g of saturated fat, making it a healthy alternative. This recipe also provides you with a massive 11+ grams of fibre, ensuring that it’ll keep you full right up until lunch.

TIP: You can play around with the toppings to add different fruit! You might even swap out the yoghurt for a teaspoon of peanut butter
