Matcha Baked Oats for One

Matcha can be a bit divisive. Some people love it, and some people hate it. I remember the first time I tried a matcha latte, I almost spat it out. There was WAY too much matcha powder in the drink, making the whole thing taste like grass.

From this experience, I learnt that matcha needs to be used in moderation. I now love matcha, and I love integrating it into my recipes. It brings such a unique flavour to sweet dishes- which is why it works wonderfully in this single-serve baked oats recipe!

What is matcha?

Matcha is a powder made from ground green tea. It’s proven to have a variety of health benefits thanks to being rich in antioxidants and a range of vitamins, minerals and amino acids. Matcha is traditionally served as a tea, although nowadays you can find matcha-flavoured everything!

Making Matcha Baked Oats

I must admit, I have an aversion to most baked oats recipes. I often find them quite dry and texturally boring. Hence my determination to make these the most delicious and interesting baked oats possible!

To do this, I injected the matcha-baked oats with a rich pistachio cream filling. Then, I topped them off with a large square of dark chocolate and a sprinkle of crushed pistachios for good measure. Both of these elements are optional but highly recommended.

ROLLED OATS: Use rolled oats and blend them into flour, or use oat flour and skip the blending step.

MATCHA POWDER: Try to use a high-grade matcha powder if you can.

MILK: You can use whatever dairy or non-dairy milk you like.

BANANA: Use a ripe banana or sub for an egg and an extra 1/2 tbsp maple syrup.

MAPLE SYRUP: Adjust the amount depending on how sweet you like your baked oats. You can also sub for a sweetener of choice.

YOGURT: I use coconut yogurt, but whatever plain or vanilla yogurt you have on hand will work.

PISTACHIO BUTTER: I use this Koro pistachio butter which is divine (use code POLKADOT for discount). You can leave it out, or sub another nut butter like cashew or almond butter.
