Oatmeal/Pancakes -> Oatmeal-Banana Cake


I had an idea. What if I take oatmeal to the next level? What if I make the healthiest, the best for your body pancakes? What happens when you combine these two aspects? You most definitely get a delicious, over-the-top breakfast! I wouldn't have thought it'd turn out so GOOOOOOD! With a trillion O's :) Because when I took my first bite I was like, no way... This is the best of both worlds! You can taste the chewy, creamy oatmeal as well as enjoy it as a real, fluffy pancake! Oh, and there is absolutely no added sugar in it. None. The best healthy breakfast ever, I swear :) Okay, I am just so excited to share this recipe I can't help but praise these lovely oatmeal-banana cakes, as I call them.


I admit, making these is a bit more time-consuming but do you seriously care when you get to eat pancakes with no guilt? I certainly don't! :P Also, if you eat oatmeal every morning as I do, then mixing it up is so refreshing! I tend to get bored with eating and doing the same things every day...
Okay, I'll just go ahead and share it with you! 

Oatmeal-Banana Cake
makes for 6 medium sized pancakes

for the oatmeal

1/2 cup whole grain oats
1/2 cup water
1/2 rice milk - or any type of milk
pinch of salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon butter

for the pancakes
2 heaped tablespoons oat flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 egg
1/4 cup rice milk - or any type of milk
1/2 mashed banana
1 teaspoon oil

First, let's prepare the oatmeal. Measure the oats, water, milk and salt into a cooking pan. Start cooking it together, occasionally stirring. Cook it for about 8 minutes, then add the vanilla and the butter. Turn the heat off, place a lid on the pan and let it sit for 5-6 minutes.
In a bowl, mix the oat flour and baking soda together. Add it to the oatmeal. Beat the egg and milk together with a fork and pour it on the oatmeal-flour mixture. Stir it well. Add in the oil and mashed banana and mix it together.
Using a big spoon, pour it onto a hot griddle and cook until it bubbles on the top side. Flip it and cook it for about a minute. Serve it with maple syrup.

Hungarian Kakaós Csiga (Chocolate Rolls)

Frankly, I missed baking so much! Even though I needed one baking-free month to lose all the weight I gained due to the excessive baking mania I got over this summer I just cannot stop it! So I decided that I don't have to give up this love of mine but I do have to figure out something that will not leave me end up gaining weight again. What to do, what to do...Bake only in the weekends! And probably I should get a grip and not stuff my face until I can't move...Which didn't really happen today. I ate like 6 of these lovely chocolate rolls...I guess, no dinner for Csilla tonight :P These rolls are from a traditional Hungarian pastry recipe. I called my Grandma to ask for the recipe and as it always happens with Grandma recipes she did not know the measurements...I don't know if it's only with my grandmas but they always work with their eyes so they usually have no idea how much grams I need from this or that... So I turned to an ancient Hungarian cookbook and that i…

Sajtos Pogácsa - Hungarian Cheese Puffs

We have different traditions in Hungary in the holiday season. Santa, I mean St Nicholas, comes on 6th December here and on Christmas Eve we are waiting for the little Jesus to bring our presents! Of course, as an almost 22-year-old I don't expect any gifts on Nicholas day...That is why I was so surprised when I got absolutely the coolest thing ever! A plastic bread-board! I had a huge wooden one that was very heavy, very hard to clean and needed such a big space. Look at this beauty :)

It has everything I might need. Measurements, unit converter, it can be rolled up, I don't need to use flour for kneading...I know exactly how big I need to knead the dough, it is perfect!  So, of course I just had to try it out! :)
I've been waiting for these cheese puffs' recipe for years now. It is a traditional, old school Hungarian pastry. It is made with yeast and it tastes amazing! These mini puffs are crunchy on the outside and super duper soft inside! This recipe is the ultimate c…

Coconut-Almond Butter stuffed Chocolate Cups

I wasn't gonna make a dessert today. Let alone something chocolatey. No no no! I wanted to have a dessert-free week. And look, I made chocolate cups! How did this happen??  Anyways... These cups are amazing. Seriously, finger-licking good. Not exaggerating. You need to make this!! I used to go crazy for Reese's but after a while I got so fed up with the excessive sweetness. Yeah, I find Reese's way too sweet and too dense. That's why I fell in love with these cups. These are not overly sweet, yet really rich and the salt on top  takes it to the next level. I am in love. Although I did eat only a half of it. But I'm thinking hard to eat another half :) I might as well just do it. What's the harm? 1 pound on my hips? Oh well! :P
So it all started with me buying a bag of almonds. To make almond butter. Then I wanted something extra so I started making coconut butter first and I kinda added more coconut than almonds... It's like raffaello butter. Utterly deliciou…
