From my recipes and photos on Instagram, it must be becoming quite clear that I love to make things with oats. In the morning, nothing fills me up in as good a way as oats, and I love the versatility of them. Not only are they great for baking/cooking, but they offer great health benefits. Oats have the most soluble fibre of all grains and are an excellent source of slow releasing carbohydrates which will give you energy to tackle a busy day. They contain a fibre known as beta-glucan which has been extensively studied for its health benefits including its ability to lower cholesterol and stabilize blood sugar levels. Oats are also high in antioxidants that help keep the heart healthy.

I tend to start most my days with a bowl of porridge, but sometimes just do not find the time. My mornings (and I am sure a lot of your mornings too) can be quite hectic and rushed, and the time to make breakfast just sometimes isn’t there. This is where these blueberry porridge squares come in. They have to be one of the most simple and quick recipes to make (only 5 ingredients), and the beauty of them is that they taste just so good, and last for days. They serve as a great on-the-go breakfast when there has been no time to make one, and they are also perfect mid-morning and afternoon snacks.

Happy Friday everyone!
