A recipe by request – healthy strawberry baked oatmeal slice

So… I posted two days ago saying I probably wouldn’t blog again until after Keggy joins this world and here I am writing again! Sorry for a bit of a blog overload!

This post is purely about food! It’s no secret I love food and it’s also pretty widely known I post much of what I eat on instagram. Yep, I’m one of ‘those’ people.

As I go into my last week of work, I wanted to make sure I had my breakfasts sorted and have one less thing to think about as I try to wrap up an entire year into a few pages of handover notes. My best friend V gave me this recipe and said she wasn’t sure if I’d make it because it wasn’t overly healthy but maybe I could hippy-fy it. I did just that and sent it back to her to try (as she’d obviously tried the original) and she told me how much she loved it and has since sent it back to her friends at work who all used to love the original. Hooray for healthy and delicious!

This recipe can be made gluten free (as long as your oats are gluten free) sugar free and dairy free. So here it is – healthy strawberry baked oatmeal slice – hope you love it! Tag me on instagram if you make it!
