Cake for Breakfast? - New GF Recipe with Pictures

Monday, March 07, 2011

Hey itís been awhile!

I discovered a new blog over the weekend thanks to Angelaís Vegan Recipe Link Love. Check out the latest one here:

She has been posting vegan recipes from numerous bloggers. Which is how I discovered Averieís blog, Love Veggies & Yoga. www.loveveggiesandyoga.c

A lot of her stuff is gluten-free, which is perfect for me! After searching through all of her recipes I have found so many delicious things to make. But the first thing that appealed to me was her Microwave Banana Oat Cakes.


Although I made my version a bit differently. First I wanted a bit more oats, so I used ľ cup instead of 3 tbsp. Although next time Iíll be adding more banana, because it was definitely too oaty.

I added the ľ cup oats, Ĺ tsp cinnamon and half a mashed banana to a bowl.

I mashed them all together and then transferred them to a lightly sprayed bowl.

I microwaved the mixture for about 95 seconds and then let it cool down for a minute or so to let it firm up.

I think itís more like a cookie, but it was delicious!! I donít think it needs any added sweetener, but feel free to add what you like! I decided to top it with Barney Butter and had a small apple and Greek yogurt on the side.

A nice filling breakfast. 350 calories, 50g carbs, 20g protein, 6g fat, 8g fiber.

I like having so many different foods, especially at breakfast. Although if you want a bigger cookie, Averie has another option for you.


What do you usually eat for breakfast? Mine includes oats daily!

    Looks like a great grab and go breakfast. I think I'll try making some of these the night before. They would fit in well with my somewhat usual breakfast.

If I like them (and I'm pretty sure I will), I think they would be great when my bananas get a little ripe. Could wrap and store them in the fridge...

    I've got my schedule all messed up, and have mostly missed breakfast the past week or so. I miss waking up at the right time. Because if I miss breakfast, I usually only eat two meals a day.

The oat cake looks yummy! I used to make a plain one, with just oats, every morning, but I got so tired of that.

I'm going to buy some Greek yogurt soon and try it out.

    mmmm.... that looks good.... I'll hafta try it!! (And take a look at some of those blogs!). Almond butter....yummmmm!!

I usually eat oats a la Bobb's REd Mill at least 4-6 times a week, but this last week I've been taking a break from them.
This morning I had a Kinnickinick Blueberry muffin & a 'fried' egg (I also often eat eggs for breakfast.... great source of protien for me!)
