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!

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!)
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 heaping tbsp Cacao
2 scoops collagen peptides (optional)
- This is seriously the easiest recipe ever! Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
- Dump everything in a bowl. Stir.
- 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).
- Top with toppings of your choosing (We opted for chocolate & sprinkles!)
- 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!
