This oatmeal bake seriously tastes like cake! That’s because this oatmeal bake doesn’t just have oats in the recipe, but flour. This oatmeal bake is so sweet, you could even eat it for dessert! I made this recipe SOS free (no salt, oil, or sugar) so that it could be a healthy, but tasty, way to start your day!
This recipe is adapted from here:
- 1/3 cup rolled oats
- 2 tbsp flour (I used buckwheat, but any kind will work)
- 1 tbsp cocoa powder
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/3 cup almond milk
- 1 tsp almond butter
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 sliced banana
- Preheat oven to 325F.
- Mix together oats, flour, cocoa powder, and baking powder.
- Stir in almond milk, almond butter, and vanilla.
- Gently fold in the sliced banana.
- Pour into a ramekin and bake for 15-20 minutes.
If you want this to be sweeter, you can add 1/2 tbsp maple syrup, but I think the banana makes it sweet enough, especially for breakfast.
Before eating this, I poured a little more almond milk on top which was also very tasty. If you want, you can even add some walnuts into the batter for more of a crunch!
This was such a treat! I have been having smoothies and banana ice cream SO much for breakfast lately, that this oatmeal bake was a nice change up. Especially for a Monday morning when school was cancelled and I had the time to enjoy this while catching up on some TV shows.
