Do you enjoy having oats for breakfast? BECAUSE I LOVE OATS!

I decided to bake oats with honey and almonds… Don’t get me wrong, but is just my creative way of introducing a unique recipe in the catering world. So is baked oats with honey & almonds good for me or is baked oats with honey & almonds good for you? Yes to both questions……..


Exclusively to this 30 mins oat recipe, because I Cherish My Baking Very Easy & Fast. This sunday beauty is filled with both oat flakes, rolled oats, raisins, grated coconut, plain, flour, sunflower seeds, hazelnuts, almonds + honey that stick in and glue the mixture together with a spoonful of vanilla flavour – Oh Yes I mixed all these ingredients together.

c a k e r y


The main task has been accomplished which is the measurement, addition and subtraction of the necessary ingredients to make sure I get the best outcome. Afterwards, I lubricate the pan so that the oats doesn’t stick to the pan.


Then is time to proportionately pour the mixture into the pan……….



This is just one of those snacks, that gets my husband sneaking in and out of the kitchen just to steal a bite out of them while I am busy cracking my brain on how to reach out to the outer world. What he does is to have a bite in the kitchen, a bite in the living room and few more bites before leaving the house just to ensure that he is fully satisfied.

Well, I just pretend that I don’t notice his larger portion intake just to simply play safe…

Okay, I am not complaining at all. And of course, if I had a segment of  things to do with taking care of my family, it is just ensuring that everyone is well fed and taken care of. Honestly, this I must confess is never an easy task, hate to say it, but this will ever be a lifetime task. I Enjoy this kind of task though……….

When I eat my baked oats, I want crunchy tops with a moist inner texture, not too soft and not too hard, and obviously golden brownish in appearance. And then I keep measuring, adding and removing the recipe ingredients until I am totally satisfied with the outcome.

Prepared with plain flour because honestly, using self-raising flour makes it too soft thereby losing it’s crunchy nature.  I baked this oat for at least 30 minutes, the first 20 minutes was covered with foil and then an additional 10 minutes uncovered so as to get the centre of the bake properly done. If you bake for only 20 mins covered, the oats will turn out under-baked, losing the brownish appearance you so desire.

Honestly, I like it crunchily brownish with a vanilla topping which unfortunately I forgot to buy during my last shopping. But my happiness is that you my friends can try this combination and DO IT YOURSELF!

Enjoy my Humble Honey Baked Oats for a great sunday and cheers to us all baking this.

  • That looks good and healthy! I imagine this having a nutty texture that I love! Yes, I wouldn’t want the outcome of this to be too hard, like some oat cookies I have tried.

    • Thanks Ceemee for your comment. Yes, the addition of almonds, hazelnuts, raisins and sunflower seeds, gave it a nutty texture and it wasn’t hard at all.

      Believe me, the taste was just as the outlook.

  • I tried baking an oatmeal cupcake before and it was an epic failure. lol Your baked oats looks yummy!

    • Many thanks Michi for your compliment. Sorry to hear that your first try on oatmeal didn’t went well.

      I bet you can never go wrong again with this recipe.

      Just follow the simple steps outlined.

  • What a delightful healthy cupcake! I would love to try this one.

    • Please do give it a try Jess and I bet you will love ’em.

      Best regards.

  • Ida

    This is an alternative way to cook oats and it looks very simple too. I adore it because it helps me lose weight and it is very nutritious. Apparently we don’t have an oven at home. Can a turbo broiler be used instead?

    • Many thanks Ida for your comment. You are right, the steps are very simplified and that’s the essence

      of globalfoodbook; to make cooking very simple, easy and yet delicious & healthy.

      Yes, you can use turbo broiler.

  • kat

    Looks yummy. Could the mixture be rolled and baked into cookies? Oh, I can use the broiler! I will try this one!!

    • Hi Kat, thanks for your comment.

      One good thing about this recipe is that you can tweak it to suit your taste. You can roll and bake them into cookies but in that case, you must make sure the mixture is thick enough to make cookies.

      Try it out and you can even share your recipe here with us.

      Stay well.

  • I haven’t tried using oatmeal in baking. That certainly looks yummy.

  • That’s yumminess overload! I tried baking some experimental oatmeal muffins before, and I didn’t like it.
