To be honest, I am not someone who hankers after the chocolate and orange combination, although it is a very classic combination. But I decided to give it a go, and combined the flavours with baked oatmeal. It turned out to be so good: sweet and tangy, suprising and subtle, that I have changed my opinion. The chocolate and orange unite exquisiteley; crispy bits of tangy orange peel gently realese their flavour, surrounded by velvety, smooth, dark chocolate flavoured oatmeal. It is a such a rich, gooey and decadent recipe and it keeps you going for hours!
Baked oatmeal with ripe bananas, juicy blueberries, cinnamon and crunchy walnuts, need I say more? The possibilities with oatmeal are endless, and I think every household should store oats in their cupboard. Not only are they a good source of fiber, which can help to regulate blood sugar levels, they also contain a wide array of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. At the moment I am completely in love with baked oatmeal, because it allows the fruit to really ‘melt’ into the oats. If you never had this version of oatmeal before, you are truly missing out. It is so easy to whip up, it can be stored in the fridge for a couple of days and warmed up to eat whenever you want and can be served as breakfast, snack or even dessert.
