Oven-Baked Protein & Oat Cake
Drinking my first coffee while baking my oat cake and enjoying the beautiful smells from the oven – priceless!
When I came up with this recipe, I tried to make it with regular oats and ultra-fine oats. In my opinion, better taste and texture are given by ultra fine oats to this oatmeal cake, but you can go with regular ones too, it will also be great!
The great thing about oatmeal cakes is that they can be combined with many different foods and adapted to your own taste. I tried to come up with something that most people would like, but you are welcome to change or add another ingredient.
So, in addition to oatmeal, you will need whey protein powder for this recipe, peanut butter powder or natural peanut butter, chia seeds, cacao nibs and soy milk. For the topping I used banana, pancake syrup, cacao nibs and shredded coco.
Once you have all ingredients, it’s time for some baking!
First, preheat the oven to 375F, then start making cake. Mix together all of the ingredients for the cake, spray the pan with oil, and pour the texture in it. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes.
In the meantime, slice the banana into thick slices, add them on the top of the cake together with cacao chips and coco, and return to the oven. When it’s completely done, allow it to cool down for a couple of minutes. Cover with Walden farms pancake syrup and enjoy!
If you want to upgrade this recipe, try with some cinnamon or pumpkin spice, it would be so delicious.
