Cake for breakfast!!! Today we are making this Coffee Cake Baked Pancake with Oat Streusel Topping. A healthy way to enjoy cake for breakfast and it goes PERFECTLY with a cup of coffee. Its not too sweet- and lower in fat thanks to the substitution of applesauce for oil. Its packed with cinnamon flavour and just the best alternative to oatmeal.
I have to be in a really specific mood to eat oatmeal otherwise I can’t stomach it. I also can’t stomach baked oatmeal. The thought makes me feel ill haha!! I hate the texture and its just always so dense and blah. But this. This is different. Theres oats in here (ground up, to make a “flour”) plus regular flour and you could definitely sub part of the flour for protein powder to make it even more filling.
This Coffee Cake Baked Pancake with Oat Streusel Topping isn’t super sweet, which is why I love topping it with a drizzle of maple syrup and some berries! I put a little pat of butter on there too for good measure. Its absolutely delicious and perfect for weekend breakfast. Plus, you’ll have leftovers to heat up and enjoy for breakfasts throughout the busy week.
Great for snacking, too!
I can also see this being an excellent mid morning or afternoon snack with a cup of tea. It’s great room temperature or heated up slightly in the microwave. You could also add in some chocolate chips or blueberries before baking so you can easily enjoy it on the go without packing toppings. The options are endless and I hope you enjoy this awesome Coffee Cake Baked Pancake with Oat Streusel Topping recipe!Print
