Recipe: 3 ingredient oat bites

Prep and cooking time: 25 mins

Serves: 6-8


  • 100g rolled oats
  • 2 small ripe bananas or 1 medium
  • 2 heaped tbsp peanut butter
  • 50g 90% dark chocolate roughly chopped, 2 tbsp seeds or raisins (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (not fan).

I am on the Second Nature 9 month course via the NHS. I’ve looked at the recipes and wonder why the Three ingredient oat bakes says Preheat the oven to 180 degrees (not fan). I only have a fan oven! Any help would be wonderful! Thanks
