Baked Oatmeal

Post them up and every so often I'll snaffle them and put them on the blog, if that's okay? It'll save you the trouble of emailing them to me. (It will mean you lose out on our charming personal interaction but I sense you can live with that.)

Baked Oatmeal

I've been meaning to post this for a while. I can't remember where I got it, but it's very blw-friendly. It's like our old porridge pancakes got dressed up for a night on the town.

Oatmeal Cake

Ingredients
1/4 cup tahini
1 banana
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 C milk
1/4 C apple purée
1 large egg
1/4 cup raw pumpkin seeds
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Mash the banana and tahini together in a small bowl. Add the oats, apple, milk and egg and mix well. Stir in the baking soda, cinnamon and pumpkin seeds.

Pour into 2 large, greased ramekins (or whatever pan you want to use) and bake at 400 degrees F for 25 minutes. Allow the baked oatmeal to cool for 15 minutes.

------
The only modification I made to the original recipe was to replace peanut butter with tahini. I keep putting tahini in Newt's food any time I can justify it - it's got so much iron.
I make this in a small rectangular dish lined with baking paper. I cut the cooled cake into little squares and both girls love it.

Cool, I'll try that, thanks.

ooh thanks, and I didn't realise that about tahini, I gave up buying it for hummus as I kept getting not very nice ones and chucking it away! What brand do you get?

YP, it is an acquired taste, admittedly. I'm in Ireland so don't know if you'd be able to get the same brand. I don't know the name of it but next time I buy it I'll post the name of it here for you.

Ooh, sound good. Plus I always need things to use up tahini. I use such a little bit for the occasional hummus and then the rest of it sits in my fridge forever.

Yes ! I said this one time to the girl in the health food shop ( that the rest sits in the fridge until it goes off) and she suggested trying a spoonful in porridge. Now, I take my porridge with milk and a bit of honey and the tahini really does go lovely with it. I also started replacing the peanut butter in my banana and peanut butter sandwiches with tahini.
There. Two more things to try. :wink:

If I remember correctly it's also packed with calcium. When DD1 was intolerant to dairy we used to stir it into dairy free yoghurt!

I don't want to puree our good apples so what works as a good substitute for Apple.puree given that it's not something we tend to use in recipes in the UK?

Never mind. Found a box of those stupid pears that go from rock solid to mouldy within four seconds. Nuking them now.

I'll let you know how the pears work out. Later in the year my mil will bombard us with Apple puree but not yet. Also added raisins to tempt my kids in.

Well it smells amazing. I'm calling it breakfast cake here so results will be posted tomorrow at some point! Didn't rise much though. Wonder if my baking powder is old.

Hmm. Good point.
I recently found an applesauce/purée that's made by this company in the UK. I love it pq much like the low sugar Cheerios, it reminds me of my childhood.

Looking at the original recipe on the my fitness pal blog, I remember now that I added in the applesauce. I think my logic was that the vitamin C in the applesauce would help absorb the iron in the tahini.

In other words, you could leave it out. Or, you could see if you can get the one I get, and put it into absolutely everything, like I do. It's amazing how tasty puréed apples are.

ETA - great! I think I toyed with calling it breakfast cake at one point, too. I'm fairly sure mine did rise, but if it's tasty then that doesn't matter.
