  3. Leave to bake for about 10 mins
  4. Now add the oats, the spices, baobab powder and coconut milk in a pan and mix well
  5. Cook the oats for about 2-3 minutes on medium heat stirring continuously so it doesn’t stick to the pan and get gloopy

  7. Mix in with the oats and let it rest

Blueberry Sauce

  1. Add the handful of bluebs into a pan

  3. Let it blanch for about 2-3 minutes on medium heat
  4. Once cooked and slightly gloopy, get the sauce into a strainer and smush it through to make a smooth pulp
