Oatmeal Cakes

I am a texture person. There are certain foods that just get me. Sometimes just looking at something makes me cringe a little. Jello is definately one of those things as well as oatmeal. That is why I shy away from regular oatmeal. For some reason the squishiness is too much. So when I saw a recipe for baked oatmeal, I thought I would try it one morning to see if I could handle the texture. It came out cake-like and I loved it. So I started to make larger amounts for my kids and it has brought me to this recipe. I serve it for breakfast, a snack, or even a dessert…anything that it needs to be. The kids love them! I have tried variations but unfortunately, I can’t play with the recipe much because the kids won’t eat it if there are raisins or blueberries or anything else in them. But I encourage any tweeking of this recipe. Let me know how it goes!


Oatmeal Cakes

3 1/2 cups applesauce
4 cups oatmeal
2 tbsp butter
pinch salt
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 cup milk
1/3 cup mini chocolate chips
1/4 cup ground flax seed

Preheat oven to 375°F. Mix everything together. Prepare muffin tins with cooking spray. Use 1/4 cup to fill each muffin. Makes about 18 – 20 oatmeal cakes. Place muffin tins in oven for 25 – 30 minutes.

These freeze well and heat up quickly in the microwave on busy mornings.
