Canadian Thanksgiving is coming up this weekend, and I am STOKED. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays, mostly just because the holiday festivities are fully centered around eating (guilty, lol.) Since we have a long weekend quickly approaching, I thought I would share one of my favourite breakfasts to make when I have a bit of extra time in the morning!
“Breakfast Cake” is what I call baked oatmeal. Why? Because it tastes way too good to be called something as lame as “baked oatmeal.” So, Breakfast Cake it is lol.
What’s in it:
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- ¼ tsp cloves
- ½ cup oats
- 1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
- ¼ tsp baking powder
- 1/8 tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp vanilla
- 1 Bosc pear
- 2 – 3 tbsp maple syrup
- Handful unsweetened coconut flakes
Preheat over to 350 degrees fahrenheit. Get out your blender and blend together the bosc pear, almond milk, and oats. Just blend it enough so that the oats break down a bit, it doesn’t need to be pureed. Mix in the remaining ingredients in a bowl, and pour into a small oven-safe baking dish. Bake for 20 – 25 mins. Let sit for a few minutes to cool, then serve with more warm almond milk on top! This recipe makes one serving, so if you are cooking for two I would double it!
There are majorrr benefits to eating oats in the morning. This skinny recipe is seriously low in calories, but is high in protein so it will power you up for your day ahead. Oatmeal is also very low in fat. Alllll great things. Breakfast cake for the win.
Give this way-too-yummy-to-actually-be-healthy recipe a try! You will be happy you did 🙂
