Ingredients
  

  • ½ cup rolled oats any
  • 1 large egg or 3 tablespoons egg whites leave it out if you are vegan
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon honey maple syrup or agave if vegan
  • ½ cup unsweetened milk I use almond and coconut
  • dash of cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts

Instructions
 

  • Pre-heat oven to 375°. In a blender add all of the ingredients minus the walnuts. Blend for 20-30 seconds. Chop up 4-5 walnuts.
  • To a ramekin or a small baking dish add the chopped walnuts.
  • Pour out the batter and put it in the oven.
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes or until set, remove with an oven mitt, let it cool for a few minutes and enjoy.

Notes

Please note: let it cool, you know it’s ready when there’s no “ jiggle “ in the center. If you are vegan you are more than welcome to leave out the egg or replace with 1/4 cup of mashed banana. Apple sauce should work as well. Feel free to leave out the walnuts if you are allergic to nuts. Berries or chocolate chips would be lovely as well. If you want to triple it or make a big batch of this you definitely can as I have had friends on my page bake it into a small cake instead. My ramekin is about 8oz.

    1. Hi there,
      Absolutely. So sorry that I didn’t clarify ( I will fix the recipe description as it’s an old one ) I used a small ramekin which is about 6 oz. Ramekins work best for this recipe

    Such a simple and delicious recipe to throw together that I make it 2-3 times a week! Sometimes I add blueberries and/or raspberries for a little twist and it’s delightful! Thank for sharing!
