Single-Serve Superfood Protein Oat Cakes

Happy Friday!

Last night, Jamie and I went out on the town for a little karaoke, Skinny Bliss style. Then proceeded to paint the town red {{evidence below}}

{{Lovin’ Life}}

We didn’t get too wild, as we both had to work this morning, but because I stayed out later than I normally would on a work night, I decided to cook myself a more-substantial-than-usual breakfast. The best breakfasts mix lean protein, healthy fats, and fibrous carbs, so I opted for a breakfast pancake that combines oats with superfoods such as hemp protein and maca powder. Disclaimer: this is a pretty dense pancake, so if you prefer something light and fluffy, be warned.

Maca Powder comes from a Peruvian root and has a number of health benefits. It provides the body with over 20 different fatty acids, calcium, phosphorus, vitamin B12 and B1 & B2, vitamin C as well as many other vitamins and minerals. It works to support the nervous system, digestive system, reproductive system and help to reduce adrenal stress to bring our bodies back in to balance. It’s also said to increase libido and stamina!

I also used hemp protein, which is one of my favorite vegan protein sources. It’s high in fiber and nutrients, and although it turns everything green, doesn’t taste half bad!

The oat cake is a great on the go breakfast, as it cooks in the microwave in under 3 minutes and makes a single serving. And it has definitely done the trick, I’m feeling more energized already!

SUPERFOOD PROTEIN OAT CAKE

1/4 c. rolled oats

2 tbsp. coconut sugar (this is a low glycemic sweetener that tastes a lot like brown sugar, but boasts more health benefits)

1/2 banana, mashed

1-2 tbsp. hemp protein

1 tsp. maca powder

1 tbsp. cocoa powder (optional)

dash of cinnamon and allspice

Combine all ingredients and cook in the microwave for 2.5-3 minutes. Serve with syrup, fruit jam, peanut butter, butter, or eat alone.

I’m off again this weekend for a Seattle trip, but not before Jamie and I spend another night out on the town! Hope to see you there 🙂
