Tips for making the best baked oats
These high protein chocolate chip baked oats are light and fluffy. Here are my tips and trick to make the very best blender baked oats:
- Baking powder and baking soda are not the same things. Make sure to use packing powder when making these baked oats!
- Use a high-speed blender to blend the ingredients. To get the fluffy cake-like texture of baked oats you need to blend all the ingredient together until smooth.
- Lightly grease the ramekin. I reccomened using cooking spray so the baked oats don’t stick to the side.
- Easily double or triple this recipe. You can just divide the batter into multiple single serve ramekins or use a cake pan.
- Do not use steal cut oats. To make the fluffiest baked oats make sure to use rolled oats or quick oats.
