"This is my favourite way to start the morning, and it fills me up until lunch and more. I’ve recently got back into hitting the gym – not sure how long it will last – but I’m enjoying the routine of going to lift some weights. I try to go early in the morning, then afterwards, as soon as I’m back home, these protein-rich oats kick-start my recovery. Once done, I’m raring to go for the rest of the day." – Dean Edwards


  • 80 g rolled oats
  • 35 g protein powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1 small banana, peeled and chopped
  • 120 ml milk
  • 1 t cocoa powder
  • 30 g desiccated coconut
  • ½ t baking powder
  • a little vegetable oil, for the dish
  • 30 g chocolate chips
  • Biscoff biscuit spread, melted, to serve (optional)

Cooking Instructions

1. Preheat the air fryer to 180°C.

2. Blitz all the ingredients, apart from the chocolate chips, in a mini blender or food processor, then pour into a small greased baking dish measuring about 14 × 10 cm (51/2 × 4 inches), or two smaller individual dishes.

3. Scatter over the chocolate chips, then cook in the air fryer drawer for 8 minutes. I like to finish mine with a drizzle of melted Biscoff spread.

Cook's note: A little protein powder might not be an everyday ingredient, but it’s great for keeping you feeling fuller longer, as well as for eating after a workout, to help repair your muscles.
