There is a special menu item that, to my knowledge, is only sold at Starbucks in Hawaii. Oat Cakes! Oh how I loved to eat those and felt that they must be oh-so-healthy with all their low fat oat-y goodness. Come to find out that those dense and moist little cakes have 450 calories, 12 grams of fat and a whopping 75 grams of carbohydrates…. No wonder I couldn’t lose the weight from that 3rd baby! Yikes!!
Fast forward to a trimmer and healthier me but still missing those Oat Cakes… Until now!
This quick, easy and economical little Oat Cake has become one of my favorites.
½ cup of Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
¾ cup Oat Flour (ground up oats)
¼ cup Vanilla or Plain Protein powder
½ tsp salt
1 Tbls ground Flax
1 Tbls Baking Powder
4 Tbls Truvia (or use your preferred sweetener to taste)
½ cup unsweetened applesauce
½ cup egg whites (carton or fresh)
1 tsp apple pie spice or cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
1 Apple (or 1 cup) diced very small.
Pour everything in a mixing bowl and blend with a fork… you don’t even need an appliance for this!
Pour in a greased 8×8 pan or muffin tins.
Bake at 350 degrees for 35 min or until knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Cut into 6 servings
