CHOCOLATE OATMEAL BREAKFAST CAKE

Breakfast has always been my favorite, even when it looked like a bowl of cereal. Shoot, I love cereal. But it leaves something to be desired in the actual filling up your body & fueling it part. So when it comes to my kids, I have two questions: 1) Does it fuel their bodies? 2) Will they actually eat it? Because nothing drives me crazier than making a meal my kids won’t eat so they can ask for a snack in 20 minutes. There are occasions when I feel like getting out all the ingredients & making fluffy pancakes from scratch, but on most mornings, I need quick & simple. And I wake up happy when I know breakfast is already prepped.

Enter chocolate oatmeal breakfast cake. (This is from my friend, Michal, (She’s the bee’s knees!) & y’all should check her out over on her site & Insta! )

If you watched Collins & me on our cooking show yesterday, you saw that this literally took us less than ten minutes to mix together, & we only dirtied one bowl. We tried it warm for our taste test & then had it cold for breakfast– I think they preferred it warm, but it’s delicious both ways. It honestly tastes like a breakfast brownie. Not as sweet as a dessert but for sure tastes like a breakfast treat!

INGREDIENTS

1 1/2 C old fashioned oats

1/2 C peanut butter (or any nut/seed butter)

1/2 C coconut sugar

1/4 melted unsalted butter

3/4 milk (I used whole milk yogurt instead!)

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

2 heaping tbsp Cacao

2 scoops collagen peptides (optional)

Optional Toppings

chocolate chips

shredded coconut

sprinkles

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. This is seriously the easiest recipe ever! Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Dump everything in a bowl. Stir.
  3. Pour into an 8×8 baking dish (I lined mine with parchment paper first for less mess, but you don’t need to grease the pan or anything).
  4. Top with toppings of your choosing (We opted for chocolate & sprinkles!)
  5. Bake for 30 minutes or until toothpick is inserted in the center & comes out clean.

 

We’ll see you guys on Sundays at 3 over on Instagram Live for our next cooking show!
