Banana oatmeal cake with berries for breakfast anyone?
So I didn't really know what else to call this. Plus, it's always kind of fun when you can have cake for breakfast. It's not a decadent chocolate cake or anything, but then, would you really want that for breakfast?
I love my chocolate and all, but even I would draw the line there. Unless it's brunch. I don't really have an issue with chocolate for dessert after brunch. Why is that? It feels weird to have dessert for breakfast - unless it's after brunch, or in the form of a pastry.
If you just sat down with a piece of chocolate cake for breakfast with your coffee, it would be weird. But a chocolate croissant? Totally fine.
Am I the only one that finds that strange? I'm okay with it - I'll have a chocolate pastry any day, but it's still kind of bizarre.
Anyhow. Got a little off track there.
Oatmeal cake. That's what we're here to talk about today. Banana oatmeal cake with berries. And even if it's not really cake, it's pretty fantastic. It's a healthy baked oatmeal "cake" filled with bananas and raspberries and drizzled with a vanilla glaze. Served warm the glaze soaks into the cake and makes for a wonderful baked oatmeal treat for breakfast.
I'm not a giant fan of oatmeal in the "regular bowl of oatmeal" form, but this kind of oatmeal I quite like. It's hearty and filling and just sweet enough to feel like a treat, even though it's definitely healthy enough to be breakfast.
Plus, it's easy to make and the whole family will love it.
And who doesn't like cake for breakfast?
