I’ve been on abit of a bender coming up with combinations to post when it comes to pancakes or waffles. I like to think outside the box or use my favourite store bought things as inspiration.

Anzac Biscuits = Anzac Biscuit Pancakes

Lamingtons = Aussie Lamington Pancakes

Caramel and Pecan Gelato = No Bake Caramel and Pecan Granola Bars

Subway White Chocolate and Macadamia Cookies = White Chocolate and Macadamia Oatmeal Pudding

The other day, I wanted to try and recreate an amazing Baklava into a Baklava oatmeal. That idea was shot down by the maven herself, Davida.

I drowned my sorrows in my newest obsession- Cake batter.

Scrap that-Cake Batter Oatmeal Pudding– which is healthy and filling and the ideal start to your morning….or to heal your wounds.

So how does this Oatmeal Pudding taste like cake batter? Well. Hear me out. I used oat bran as it lends to a creamier texture than classic rolled oats do. A vanilla protein powder lends a protein boost, with the flavour of a cake batter base. The key ingredients, however, are the whole egg and the coconut flour. Adding a whole egg and the coconut flour in the cooking process allows for a dense, cake texture. Ensure you add the extra milk as the coconut flour absorbs liquid better than a sponge.

Next time someone shoots down your ideas- Build a bridge, get over it, and eat cake batter…oatmeal pudding.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup oat bran [Gluten Free- use GF oats]
  • 1/2 tsp of salt
  • 1 1/4 cups dairy free milk of choice divided
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 large egg for a vegan option, sub for 1 flax egg- 1 T flax + 3 T water
  • 1 scoop of vanilla or unflavoured protein powder optional*
  • 1 T coconut flour sifted
  • 2 tsp natvia natural sweetener or sweetener of choice
  • 1-2 T shredded coconut
  • Nut butter/toppings of choice

Instructions

  • Combine oat bran, salt and 1 cup of milk in a saucepan or microwave safe bowl until most of the liquid is absorbed. Whisk in the whole egg very well and continue cooking for another 1-2 minutes, or until the egg is fully cooked and oats are fluffy.
  • Stir in the vanilla protein powder, sweetener of choice, vanilla essence and coconut flour until fully combined- Oat bran mixture should be extremely thick. Add in the extra 1/4 cup of milk and ensure it is well mixed. Once this is done, refrigerate uncovered.
  • The next morning, stir the oatmeal very well before adding the shredded coconut and nut butter/toppings of choice.

Notes

The protein powder is optional- If you omit or used an unsweetened one, ensure you add some honey/maple syrup/brown sugar/sweetener of choice. Ensure you use the whole egg and not egg whites as it provides the cake batter like texture. If you don't have coconut flour, add a tablespoon of flaxmeal, oat flour or an extra tablespoon of shredded coconut.

    1. When I was having oatmeal regularly I always whisked in a whole egg, especially for protein and texture reasons. And also always a tbsp of ground flax seeds for fiber! Those were the basic ingredients in my oatmeals everyday. So good!

    2. Oh my, cake batter oatmeal sounds really great and it’s healthy too?! Thanks for the wonderful recipe, I’m definitely going to try it!

    3. Wow… This makes my current bowl of oatmeal look sad…. I think I need to spruce up my breakfast! I’m just so hungry in the morning that I want breakfast ready right away! I’m gonna have to invest some time in doing overnight oats.

    4. I’ve never tried oat bran, but this sounds delicioussss. Can you get coconut flour at woolies?

    5. What perfect timing! I have just about embarked on a love affair with oat bran (thank you Miss P!)..so I will be doing a take on this I’m sure 🙂 . Oooh baklava oatmeal? If it has that surupy sweet thing going I think I’d be all over it; I need to check that out.

    6. Yessssss please! This is really exaxtly for Stefan! And meeee 😀
      Sounds absolutely delicious! I need to stock up on protein powder and then I need to eat this this weekend before the Whole30 starts!!!
      Baklava isn’t for me. Way too sweet. So I guess I would pass on the baklava oatmeal. Especially when some cake batter oatmeal pudding waits! I never had oatbran but now I am intrigued to try it!
      Chocolate always helps me to drown my sorrows.
      Have a lovely weekend!

    7. Never heard of oatmeal pudding! This recipe sounds fabulous… and I’m not normally a fan of cake batter flavored things! I usually drown my sorrows in ice cream. And my excitements. And my…anythings. HA!

    8. You had me at cake! Love oat bran and usually go for a half oat bran, half oat mix when cooking oatmeal on the stove! I’ve never been huge on baklava but I do think the flavours full work rather well in oatmeal…only one way to tell! As for drowning my sorrows, pass over the ice cream pleeeease :-)!

    9. Oh hello cake batter porridge – that sounds delicious!
      Please make a baklava – i LOVE baklava. They have a little baklava shop near my sister’s house and it is insane!
