Since Valentine’s Day is coming up and you’re probably thinking about chocolate (OK, I’m thinking about chocolate), I created a delish chocolate oatcake recipe.
As I have said many times, oatcakes are one of my fave breakfasts. I made them yesterday with cinnamon, goji berries, pecans and pure maple syrup - soooooo good! They taste so decadent and are very easy to make.
Today I made Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatcakes. Chocolate + Peanut Butter = Magic.
I used an egg white to mix these together, but you can also use a mashed banana, which makes the oatcakes much sweeter.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatcakes
1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1 egg white
2 tsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1 tsp. chia seeds (optional)
1 tsp. ground flax seeds (optional)
2 tsp. coconut oil
1 tbsp. natural peanut butter
1-2 tsp. honey or pure maple syrup
Mix together oats, egg white, cocoa, vanilla, chia seeds and ground flax seeds.
Using your hands, form three balls and flatten them into oatcakes.
Heat coconut oil on a pan over medium heat.
Place oatcakes on pan and cook until crispy and cooked through.
Top with peanut butter and honey or maple syrup.
