Oat Cakes with Caramelized Banana & Blueberries

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

Caramelized Bananas

  • 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.
