During the height of lockdown baking was a popular pass time for thousands of households.

Banana bread reigned supreme, but keen bakers also proudly showed off pictures of their lemon drizzle cakes, scones and cookies on social media.

The 'knead' for baking is still going strong, and one popular baker has shared her recipe for tasty cinnamon rolls.

Made primarily with oats and yoghurt, they're a healthy version of the bun and also make for a great breakfast.

The rolls were created by Instagram baker @cakeontherun, and they only take five minutes to make, Surrey Live reports.

Once cooked, it can be enjoyed in bite-size pieces with yoghurt and maple syrup drizzled on top, as one big bake straight from the oven or broken up in a cereal bowl with milk poured over if you bake them a little longer to go crunchy.

They can be made gluten-free if using gluten-free oats and vegan friendly when using a dairy-free yoghurt such as soya.

Cinnamon roll baked oats recipe (serves 1):

Ingredients:

Method:

     
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180C/ 350F/ gas mark 4. 
  2. Blend the oats to a powder. 
  3. Put the blended oats, yoghurt and baking powder into a bowl and mix. 
  4. Dust a surface and roll out the sticky mixture with your hands. It will be very sticky but the flour will reduce the stickiness and help you shape it into a flat sausage shape. 
  5. Sprinkle over the sweetener and cinnamon, roll up and slice into four to five pieces. 
  6. Oven bake for five minutes. 
  7. Serve straight away with extra yoghurt and a drizzle of maple syrup (optional).  

If you don't want to get your hands sticky and would rather cook the dough as one big ball, feel free.

Fill it with the cinnamon sugar, pop it in the oven and slice it once it's baked instead.
