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 = keto 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.

Healthy Cake Batter Oatmeal

A breakfast bowl which tastes exactly like a classic cake batter but without the nasties- fuel your morning with this healthy dish.
Servings: 1

Ingredients  

  • 1/2 cup oat bran [Gluten Free- use GF oats]
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 1/4 cups dairy free milk of choice divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon 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 tablespoon coconut flour sifted
  • 2 teaspoon natvia natural sweetener or sweetener of choice
  • 1-2 tablespoon 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. Yummy! And major love for using the WHOLE egg!
    I know a certain husband who will love this one….! 🙂

  2. Mmmm, cake batter anything sound good, but even better for breakfast!

    I think you can guess how I drown my sorrows….

  3. I haven’t had oat bran before! But now I do want some cake batter… I drown my sorrows in cookies and ice cream. Or on a really bad day, both in the form of a cookie ice cream sandwich!

    1. Cookie ice cream sandwich….guess who had one last weekend. So Good. SOOOO good.

  4. I drown my sorrows in chocolate or ice cream, but oatmeal works too 😉 I’ve never been the biggest fan of adding protein powder to oats because I found that it made them strangely watery and soupy, but I’ve never tried pairing it with coconut flour. Gonna have to put that on the to-do list, because uhm… who doesn’t like cake batter?!?!? Especially first thing in the morning.

    1. Well someone must have been drowning their sorrows throughout today 😉

      It definitely depends on the protein powder? It’s…okay I need to vocalise it to you because there’s an entire science behind it.

  5. Cake batter, eh? I’m intrigued. Now that I have a roommate I’m going to command her to make me HLB recipes all the time. She better agree to this. Hahaha

    If I’m really upset, I actually lose my appetite. It’s very strange.

    1. I’m so upset you have a room mate now.

      It started with a lost iphone and now this. Fail.

  6. Ok, I love that there’s an egg in there AND I love even more that there’s coconut flour in there. Why is it so magical?!

  7. oatbran makes the best porridge!! i love it! reminds me of rice pudding, almost. But way thicker!

    1. YES- so much like rice pudding! Speaking of which, I have a cheeky recipe for rice pudding/oat bran concoction. 😉

  8. i haven’t gotten on board the oat bran train yet…but it sounds like that must change. sounds amazing.

  9. I think baklava oatmeal would be so good! I don’t care what Davida says, I think you should do it! 😛

  10. I love oatbran! I haven’t had rolled oats in a long time but oatbran is my go to, there is just something about that texture. I have made it with coconut flour and egg whites before but I haven’t tried it with a whole egg. I must do it soon because the photos look like the texture turned out perfectly.

    1. Thank you, Sarah- definitely try it with a whole egg- it takes the texture to an entire new level!

  11. Oh yes, you totally had me at cake batter! I mean…cake batter anything, has my name written all over it! I’ve never tried oat bran before, so I obviously, don’t have any at home, so I think I’d go with rolled oats here. It looks delicious!

  12. I don’t think i’ve ever actually had oat bran! But if it leads to cake batter flavoured oats….must try. I would say that I drown my sorrows in chocolate or ice cream. Basically, I am a stereotypical female.

  13. Ah I wish I had these in the winter! I’ll just have to pin them for next November 🙂 Do you ever eat oats for other meals of the day?

    1. This is a Summer staple- you eat it cold 😉

      I haven’t recently, but I have before!

  14. So I think I know what breakfast is going to be tomorrow thanks to you!

    And totally random but I had those place mats! 🙂

    1. Hahaha well now I can gift them to you.

      NO JOKE P YOU’RE DOPPELGANGER IS ON THE VOICE AUSTRALIA.

      Okay, she’s not a contestant but the wife of a contestant that just got married in Sri Lanka.

  15. Ooo intriguing, indeed! I kinda want to sleep on this oatmeal pudding. It looks so fluffy!
    I say yay to baklava oatmeal. Davida, how could you say no?!

    1. Davs is just a human mole.

      It is fluffy. Fluffy like a chicken before it’s made into chicken feet.
