Can i replace the protein powder, if yes what can i replace it with?
I’m also wondering this. What would be a suitable replacement, in taste & amount?
I mean; i have concentrated ‘vanilla essence’, would a couple of drops of that + everything else as-is work?
3 scoops is a lot of dry ingredient to leave out. You might have to substitute a little bit of flour to make up for it. It isn’t in there for the vanilla flavoring.
Would you say 3 scoops of flour to replace the protein or less flour?
You probably need the same mass of flour as is missing from the lack of protein powder
Bro, I made this 2x already.
I added in a little bit of sugar for sweetness.
I also do the milk when I reheat. Pure goodness.
What fat percentage milk are your calories calculated with?
I would say as a good rule of thumb if a recipe just states “milk”, it’s usually 2%, but I did confirm with the video listed that it is in fact 2%.
(I realise this is a fairly old comment, but I figured I’d answer in case anyone’s got the same question n’ didn’t check the video.)
This is by far one of my favorite breakfast recipes on here both in terms of cooking ease and taste, thanks dude.
Amazing and quick
What can i use instead of applesauce?
I use the same amount of mashed *very ripe* bananas and I think it tastes great
You could use mashed bananas or I even use Greek yogurt.
This is delightful. If I double this recipe to make a thicker bar that I can cut into narrower strips, how do you think that will effect cooking time?
I made this for the first time and it tastes great but it’s way more spongy than the video makes it seem. I tried putting it back in the oven for another 15 minutes but still didn’t really solidify. Where could I have gone wrong? Only deviation from the recipe was using 2 eggs rather than the egg whites.
Did you do it using imperial or metric measurements? If you did it using metric, try using more oats. In other recipes for these oat bakes, I see a lot of users saying that the 240g figure is wrong for 3 cups of this type of oats, that the real figure is 270-340g. Having a “watery” result would be indicative that you needed more dry mix (i.e. oats).
I used metric and you just need to wait for it to cool down because of the applesauce
I’ve been making this weekly for the past couple of months, it’s a great ‘cheap’ protein bar to have with and just really helps with the sweettooth during a workday. Thanks so much for this recipe
I wanted to try this because I kept eating store-bought cereal bars for breakfast/snacks, and they’re pretty much nutritionally void besides carbs, lol. I like this so much better!
The texture is really easy to eat–not mushy or gloopy like traditional oatmeal, and solid enough to pick up and eat with one hand (especially straight out of the fridge). It’s sort of like eating a sweet quiche that’s not as jiggly because of the oats.
Ingredients are really easy to substitute. My grocery store didn’t have everything I needed, so I used 4 tablespoons of Splenda instead of the maple syrup and sweetened applesauce instead of unsweetened. Still great.
I used a 9″ by 13″ pan like the recipe suggests, and I cut my oatmeal into 8 pieces. I might do 10 next time because these are some thicc slices.
I was going to make the blueberry and lemon baked oatmeal this week, but I liked this so much that I just made it a second time. Excellent recipe from the Mayor of Snack City. 😎
P.S. — if you use whole eggs, make sure you whisk them with a fork before you put them in your batter. You’ll get random bits of egg with a hard-boiled texture if you don’t.
do you store this at room temp or in the fridge ?
I’m definitely trying this tomorrow. Instead of using protein powder I’m going to grind up some additional oatmeal to make oat flour to try to match the protein powder and get the same consistency. I’ve made the strawberry one and it was good but too wet. So trying the oat flour may be the key I need
If you dont have an issue with gluten, you could put in some Vital Wheat Gluten. It has similar macros to protein powder. May take a little experimentation to get the right balance
Love this, but with is there such a large discrepancy between the nutritional values listed here and when I plug the recipe into MyFitnessPal?
This is like eating dessert for breakfast! Really yummy! My whole family loves it.
Need to make a Higher Protein version of this. This is a fantastic recipe.
My wife is a big fan of this. Made it for her every Sunday before our work week. We use mocha protein for some extra cocoa flavor.
Great for having a meal on the go! Brought these to jury duty to avoid having to buy lunch near the court house.
Has anyone tried freezing these? I want to make a lot at one time so I can just pull them out of the freezer and heat it up
This is amazing!
My first ever batch is finally in the oven. My microwave killed itself and tried to take me and my cats with it. But I yanked the microwave open with a 3 second reaction time. I only know that bc I set it for 10 seconds and there was 7 second left. I unplugged it and retrieved my butter from the electric monster’s maw. To be clear I did not put anything in the microwave that should not have been in the microwave. A tablespoon of butter in a small microwave safe glass dish. The microwave just chose violence today. Fingers crossed the brownies turn out okay and that they aren’t tainted by the evil from the demon box.
Def one of my favs… I use mint chip protein powder and used mint chocolate chips and a touch of mint extract. Best chocolate mint Brownie Oatmeal bake ever!
I used steel cut oats and Greek yogurt in place of the apple sauce. I added sugar so it’s not so healthy but it’s great. My kids love it.
This came out fantastic! I have a strong sweet tooth, and this is perfect as a dessert alternative. I used greek yogurt instead of applesauce and I think it came out great.
Love these! Has anyone tried blending all the ingredients for a smoother texture?
Ended up using almond milk in place of regular milk, not sure if that really affected it but it did come out ok. Next time I’ll try regular milk, just know you CAN use almond milk, just had to let it sit in longer.
