- In another bowl, mix together the oats, seeds and seasonings.
- Coat the tofu pieces in the wet batter and then the dry coating. Spray each bite with a little oil before placing them on the preheated baking sheet and baking for 12 minutes.
- Flip the tofu bites and then bake for an additional 10 minutes or until crispy.
- Leave to cool before serving.
