These oat cakes are like baked oatmeal but made on the griddle.
The recipe comes from a colleague of mine, and they are so easy to make and downright delicious.
Oat Cakes - from Joy
- 3/4 C Old Fashioned Oats
- 2 T milk
- 1/4 C applesauce
- 1 egg
- 1/4 tsp. baking powder
- pinch of salt
- dash of cinnamon
- 1 medium banana
- 2 tsp. maple syrup
In a large bowl, combine the 3/4 C oats, 1/4 tsp. baking powder, pinch of salt and dash of cinnamon with 2 T milk, 1/4 C unsweetened applesauce and 1 egg. Mix well.
Allow the mixture to stand for 10-15 minutes for the oats to soften.
Meanwhile, slice the banana and place into a lightly buttered skillet.
Cook over medium heat along with 2 tsp. maple syrup for 3-5 minutes, then carefully flip. Cook on the other side for an additional 2-3 minutes. Then, turn the burner off and leave the bananas in the pan on the stove.
When the oat mixture is ready, place 1/4 C of the mixture (I used a cookie scoop) onto a griddle pre-heated to about 350 degrees. Flatten out the mixture a little bit with your ladle.
Cook about 5 minutes and then flip, continuing to cook for 3-4 minutes until the cakes are golden brown.
Serve topped with caramelized banana and blueberries.
