Mmm baked oatmeal cakes that are healthy and super easy to make and to customize! I’ve been making these for a couple of days. I just ate one with some fresh blackberries and it was a delicious combination. I’ve also been using PB2 every day – Not as amazing as real peanut butter, but pretty dang good considering most of the oil/fats have been extracted. It has around 85% less fat and calories than regular peanut butter. Anyhoo…look at this delicious treat (and my cat…well, that photo is a couple of years old when I first tried PB2 for the first time, but I thought I’d share it again!):
I either get mine at a local supplement store, since I get a bit of a work discount, but I usually get it from iHerb, since they have the cheapest prices.
- 1 cup rolled oats
- ½ cup unsweetened apple sauce
- ½ cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1 tbs xylitol
- ½ tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- Optional: small handful of raisins and/or frozen/fresh blueberries
- Preheat oven to 375F.
- In a medium-sized bowl, add in all of the Oatmeal Cake ingredients and mix well. Get out two ramekins and evenly distribute the mixture between then. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes. They will firm up a little bit once they are removed from the oven, so as long as there aren't any wet areas, they should be good to come out.
- Allow to cool for a few minutes (this makes them easier to pop out of the ramekins) while you prepare the Chocolate Peanut Butter Frosting. Simply mix the ingredients in a small bowl and then spread onto your oatmeal cakes. Add some berries / fresh chopped fruit and enjoy! You can keep extras in the fridge for a couple of days.
