Low FODMAP Baked Oats
I had not heard of baked oats until quite recently. It was something I stumbled upon on Instagram and just needed to make it! It is one of the most delicious way of eating oats, and super easy to keep low FODMAP.
We have decided to try a bunch of different baked oat combinations and have compiled a list of our favourite low FODMAP flavours.
This recipe is a lot easier to make if you have a blender or a food processor available. It can however be made without those tools too, but it will be a little more “rustic” as you wont be able to blend the ingredients down into as fine of a paste.
You can experiment with a lot of different flavours blended into the base itself, rather than adding them in at the later stage when pouring the mixture into the ramekins. Some examples of this being adding peanut butter or cocoa powder to the mixture as we do in a couple of the flavour combinations.
Method of Cooking
The traditional, and in our opinion, best method is to bake the oats in the oven. Sure it does take a little bit longer than just popping them in the microwave, but the texture is so much nicer when you bake it in the oven.
The method is as simple as pouring the mixture into small ramekins and baking them for about 15-20 minutes. Just let them cool for a couple of minutes before trying to eat them as they will be very hot (close to lava).
Baking in the microwave is a quicker and more convenient way of doing it. The texture will not be as nice but perhaps you are in a hurry or simply just don’t care. Either way, all you need to do is pour the batter and flavourings of your choosing into a microwave safe container and bake for 3-5 minutes (depending on your microwave) on the highest heat.
Baking a large batch
You could also bake a larger tray of the oats in one go and then simply scoop it into bowls as and when you wish to eat it. This is a great way if you don’t have a bunch of ramekins available at home. We have not tried this method in the microwave so we cannot say if it would turn out well or not. It does however work perfectly fine in the oven, just bake them a few minutes longer than the individual cups.
These are some of our favourite flavour combinations:
Brown Sugar & Peanut Butter
Dark Chocolate & Raspberry Compote
Only the imagination will stop you when it comes to finding tasty flavour combinations. Just be sure to double check the FODMAP content with the Monash FODMAP App.
