Delicious Oven Baked Oats

Women's Health |

Slow-cooking oats in the oven makes it easier to cook sturdier (and healthier) rolled oats, but saves standing at the stove-top and stirring – plus there’s no sticky porridge pot to clean. Oven-baked oats can also be cooked ahead for those busy weekday mornings; simply reheat. The sea salt creates a deliciously sweet-salty finish when adding maple syrup or brown sugar.

What You Need

1½ cups water
1½ cups low-fat milk
1¼ tsp sea salt flakes
1 cup rolled oats

To serve:

Full-cream milk
Maple syrup
Toasted pecans
