Baked oats are a healthy breakfast that feels like a dessert – what’s not to love? You can mix them up and leave them in the fridge overnight like a Bircher pot, then pop them into the oven in the morning when you wake. By the time you’ve finished your morning shower and got dressed, the smell of starchy sweetness will coax even the most stubborn of breakfast refuseniks into the kitchen. The berries can be replaced with any of your choice, or more bananas, or cinnamon and other spices — or even a couple of dollops of red or purple jam. Works well with gluten-free oats, too.
