Baked Oatmeal Cake


Here is a new way to enjoy your oatmeal!  Why not try it in cake form, right?  Let me add that I made a few changes to the original recipe and they will be listed in bold next to the original.

Baked Oatmeal               
1 cup oil (can substitute butter or applesauce) I used 1 c. applesauce
1 ½ cups sugar (can reduce)  I used Stevia, to taste
4 eggs
6 cups oats
4 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 cups milk
Combine all ingredients in order listed. Pour into greased 9×13-inch pan. Bake at 375° for 30-40 minutes until lightly browned. Can refrigerate overnight before baking. Serve topped with butter, brown sugar, and milk.  (I did not serve topped with butter, brown sugar and milk.  See my serving suggestions below.)

I should say that I don’t love this recipe plain.  Sure, if you did it with butter and sugar I’m sure it’d be fab!  But my healthified version definately needs some toppings.

Try if mashed up on some greek yogurt:

100_1334Or try it the way I’ve been having it for lunch the last few days.  I cut it down the middle and put peanut butter and a few chocolate chips in the middle.  Then I closed it up and topped it with just a tad bit of maple syrup.  Then I poured some milk on top like cereal!  Today I even added chopped strawberries and some stevia on top.


How will you have your oatmeal cake?

I threw this together the other night quite randomly and I LOVED it!!! 

I started by scrambling some eggs, one whole egg and two whites to be exact, with some veggies, brocolli, onion and zuchinni to be exact, again.  After this was all scrambled and cooked I threw it over 1/2 cup of cottage cheese and topped with 1/2 T. real maple syrup.  The syrup gave it a yummy breakfast sweetness.  Brandon topped his with salsa so whichever way you want to go with it will be fantastic!

This oatmeal could possible ressemble apple pie and vanilla ice cream.  It is SO good! 

Cook 1/4 cup of oats with 1/2 cup water on the stove along with half an apple chopped into chunks.  Make sure this all cooks together so the apples are cooked.  After cooking stir in 1 T. flax seed, 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder and cinnamon. 

Top the oatmeal with 1 Tablespoon of peanut butter over half and 1/4 cup plain oatmeal mixed with stevia on the other half. 

I’ve been having this oatmeal everyday this week and it is to die for!  All the flavors mix together wonderfully!

I have been so caught up with oatmeal lately that I haven’t posted any of my many protein pancake creations.  This is the one I’ve been eating a lot lately.  The bananas make it so good!  BUT, there’s a technique to it.  Read on…


The recipe for the basic protein pancake is:

  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 1/4 cup cottage cheese
  • splash vanilla
  • cinnamon
  • stevia

Mix all that in the blender.  Pour into a 10 inch skillet.  When it is almost ready to flip (there are bubbles and it is almost firm enough to handle a flip) press some banana slices into the pancake.  Then flip and finish cooking.  I usually top with 1 T. natural peanut butter or almond butter and about 1 teaspoon of honey drizzled over the top.  The honey makes it so good and sweet!

This is not a loaded oatmeal recipe, meaning there is not banana or milk in the base.  I just made regular old oatmeal with water in the micro.  But it still tasted great!


1/3 cup old fashion oats cooked in the microwave with 2/3 cup water


While it’s warm stir in ¾ scoop vanilla protein powder, 2 T. lemon sugar free fat free Jello Pudding mix, and 1 small spoonful of poppy seeds.


There you have it!  Lemon Poppy Seed Muffin Oatmeal!

This is a great breakfast when you want something light.  I used 3 egg whites.  While the egg whites are cooking I add my veggies, usually peppers and onions.  When it is almost cooked through flip the omlet.  Spread 1 T. fat free or low fat cream cheese over half the omlet and top that with 3-4 T. fat free cheddar cheese.  Fold in half to melt the cheese and enjoy!

Here’s another yummy oatmeal combo for you guys!

As always, I started with the fabulous Loaded Oatmeal Base.  Then I mixed in:

  • 1/2 scoop chocolate protein powder
  • 1 T. chocolate sf ff pudding mix

Then I topped it all off with:

  • Sliced strawberries
  • 15 chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup Kashi Go Lean Crunch (for some crunch)
  • 1 T. peanut butter

Ok, so I know that peanut butter is no where to be found in chocolate covered strawberries.  But, c’mon, it’s peanut butter.  It just HAD to be included.
