UBER HEALTHY, SUPER EASY AND A VERY DELICIOUS OAT CAKE RECIPE!
Really I am not exaggerating! While having lunch with my good friend David Lindsey last week and talking about life in general, we got into the breakfast subject…. ( still not sure how ). He mentioned that his wife Lisa bakes an oat cake every week, which she keeps in the fridge and they have it for breakfast throughout the week. I got intrigued about it and as soon as I had a chance I sent Lisa a message asking for the recipe. Lisa is a personal trainer and personal chef as well; so I knew that was going to be an awesome recipe! She sent me the recipe below and I made it the very next day….People! People! People! Stop the press! Truly an amazing breakfast! I’ve been having for breakfast this entire week with Kefir ( or sometimes almond milk ) and diced fresh fruit! So, so good! You may tweak the recipe to be sugar free as well ( I made it with brown sugar like the recipe calls and it was delicious! ) I tried heating it up and serving it cold as well…both ways were delicious! … And in case you are wondering…..THIS OAT CAKE TASTE VERY GOOD TOO!
Hope you try it and give me your feedback. Lisa Lindsey is THE TOP Lake Nona area personal trainer and a very good friend…Check out www.Fitness407.com out to understand why she is THE TOP trainer! The recipe credit goes to Jaclyn – www.CookingClassy.com .
