There are various ways to make oatmeal.
- Baked Oatmeal
- Cookies, Cakes or Pies
- Overnight Oatmeal
- Add them to smoothies
- Cook them on the stove-top
But I’ve found a new way to enjoy my oatmeal in the morning…
I call them Oatcakes.
They are very simple to make, and it only takes about 5-7 minutes (with prep and cooking including). You only need three simple base ingredients to make oatcakes, and any additional add-ins depending on the flavor you’d like to make.
Today’s oatcake is inspired by my favorite childhood cookie…Oreos.
Cookies n’ Cream Oatcake
- 2/3 cup MyOatmeal “Cookie Monster” blend (or substitute regular rolled oats + sweetener of preference)
- 1 1/3 cup water
- 1 tbsp. chia seeds
- 1.5 tbsp. Spirtu-tein Cookies n’ Cream protein powder (or sub protein powder of preference)
- Yogurt of preference (non-dairy such as So Delicious, or Greek yogurt, or vanilla yogurt)
- Chocolate Peanut Butter (optional)
- Oreo cookie crumbles or chocolate chips (optional)
- In a medium pot, add your water, oats, chia seeds and protein powder. Cook over medium-high heat until your oats are very thick (at least 3-5 min.)
- Pour your oatmeal into at least two or three individual ramekins. Cover, and refrigerate overnight in order for your oatcakes to set.
- The next day, carefully plop your oatcakes out the ramekins. Layer, and top each one with yogurt of preference (your “cream” layer), and add any additional toppings as desired (peanut butter, chocolate syrup, cookie crumbles, chips, etc.)
