Grease the dish with a little spray oil, coconut oil or butter first! 4. You can optionally add another tsp - 1 tbsp of the Nutshed peanut butter to the center of the oats half way through filling the dish, and then top it off with the remaining oat mixture. 5. Cook outs for 15 - 20 minutes depending on desired level of doneness. We cooked these ones for 20 minutes for a set, soft, doughy, cake-like consistency. 6. Top oats with apples, peanut butter and some chopped pecans!

Peanut Butter Oat Scones Preparation Time - 10 minutes Cooking Time - 15 - 18 minutes Servings - 6 Ingredients ● 120g ripe banana mashed ● 60g Nutshed Smooth Peanut Butter ● 125ml Flahavans Oat Drink ● 150g Flahavan’s Gluten Free Pure Oats ● 100g Flahavan’s Porridge Oats ground to flour ● 1 tbsp baking powder Directions 1. Preheat your oven to 200C (400F). 2. Mix together the banana, peanut butter and oat drink in a large bowl. 3. And the oats, oat flour and baking powder. Mix well to combine. Set to one side for 10 minutes. 4. Line a baking tray with baking paper. 5. Divide the dough into 6 mounds. Shape the mounds using your hands to form two inch thick rounds. Dampen your hands in water before doing so to make it easier as the dough will be, and should be, sticky. 6. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 - 18 minutes; until risen and lightly browned. Allow to cool for at least 10 minutes before slicing. They will be a little soft otherwise, but it’s only an aesthetic thing. 7. Serve topped with yogurt or creme fraiche of choice, dairy free if necessary, peanut butter and some good quality raspberry jam. 8. Store leftovers in a sealed container for up to 3 days. Freeze for up to one month.
