Starting up the new year with a healthy and a completely vegan recipe. Vegan Baked Oats and Vegetable Bites, is a versatile recipe which can be made using the ingredients at home and serves as good party appetizer a snack or even bite size toddler food. This Baked Oats and Vegetable bites are loaded with low carb vegetables like cauliflower and Broccoli and uses very little oil like a teaspoon, just to brush the top and bottom to give them a bit of crunch.
The preparation can be even made ahead and can be just baked when required. One can fry them as pakoda’s or bhajiya’s but I wanted a healthy, guilt-free version. Also, I am not calling it as Gluten-free as some consider oats to be gluten-free and some not, due to the way it is handled. So I leave the decision to you.
The idea for these baked bites came to me on the go. I had my leftover Oats Vegetable chila(Pancake) batter with some modification, in the original recipe I have used semolina, which I replaced with Chickpea flour. In that batter, I had already added some capsicum, onion and little Broccoli. I wanted to finish the batter and prepare something healthy, so I added more Broccoli and cauliflower to it so that I have a thick consistency batter so that I can shape them into mini bites. So no more talking and straight to the recipe:
