If you are fan of oats for breakfast like me and you wake up knowing that they are waiting in the fridge– this recipe is for you. Some nights I am coming home late and by the time I shower and get ready for bed it’s really late. Which results in me not preparing my oats for the next morning. On days like these this is a great and easy way to make an oat cake which you have complete freedom with decorating. I am now experimenting with a few variations but here’s the one I had this morning.
Oat Breakfast Cake
¼ cup of regular oats
½ ripe banana
¼ tsp baking powder
1 tsp carob powder
2 egg whites
2 tbsp crushed hazelnuts
½ tsp vanilla extract
sweetener for taste. I used 4 drops of stevia but ½ tbsp of honey would work too
2 tbsp peanut butter
decorated with blueberries and a spoon of peanut butter
Mash banana and add oats, peanut butter, nuts, carob powder, baking powder, egg whites, sweetener and vanilla extract. Use a Teflon pan and fry it on a low heat on both sides (watch it all the time it’s burns easily). Flip it using a spatula and a fork. Ready in a few minutes. Add your toppings and enjoy.
It’s the long weekend over here. I am still going to work but I hope I will find something exciting to do and enjoy the last long weekend of this summer. And what are you up to this weekend?
Till next time
