Cranberry Stuffed Oatmeal Breakfast Cake

by Heather

If you have leftover cranberry sauce, or simply a lot of jam around, you need to try this cranberry stuffed oatmeal breakfast cake! It’s not your average cake – filled with banana for sweetness, gluten free oat flour, chia seed, cinnamon and of course – cranberry sauce! You’ll love waking up to this easy breakfast cake you can prep ahead and enjoy later in the week.

A breakfast cake is very much like baked oatmeal, but instead of one large casserole style dish, we’re making individual breakfast cakes!

This recipe makes 2 servings, but it can very easily be doubled or triples depending on your need.

The sweetness from the banana pairs perfectly with the tart cranberry sauce. It’s a fun surprise to scoop into this oatmeal bake and find a pretty red center!

How to make a breakfast cake

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat 2 oven safe ramekins with avocado oil
  • Mash together the banana, milk, vanilla and egg.  Add the oats, baking powder, chia seed, cinnamon and sea salt in to the bowl and stir until combined with the wet ingredients.
  • Pour half the batter into the ramekins. Add the cranberry sauce between them. Top with remaining batter.  Depending on the size of your ramekins, they may be very fully!
  • Bake for 23-25 minutes, until the breakfast cakes are set and fully cooked through.

Substitution ideas

  • Not a fan of banana? Use canned pumpkin instead + 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • If you don’t have oat flour, easily make your own, or use rolled oats
  • Make this vegan by omitting the egg and doubling the amount of chia seeds used. Before adding the chia seeds in, soak them in 1/2 cup water first to make a gel.
  • If you don’t have cranberry sauce, make a chia jam to use instead!

Your Cranberry Stuffed Oatmeal Cake looks SO good! 😀 I’ve found that my abs aren’t as strong as they used to be and I want to strengthen them, too. 🙂

Your breakfast cake looks amazing! I still have some leftover cranberry sauce, so I’ll have to try this for breakfast tomorrow. I’ve been making a lot of similar breakfast cakes lately using buckwheat flour, and I love them. I love oats and cranberries, so I’m sure this will become a favorite too!

I love the buckwheat cakes too! The stinky part is that the only store I can find raw buckwheat at is 25-30 minutes away so I don’t go there very often. I hope to soon though!

Haha yeah he’s not always the task master… just every couple of weeks when the house starts to get pretty messy.
