Black & Orange Halloween Oatcake

Happy Halloween!

I love to get festive with my oatmeal for the holidays, so this breakfast has Halloween written all over it.

To go with the color scheme of Halloween, I made a black and orange oatcake. The “black” layer is chocolate, and the orange layer is pumpkin spice flavor. If that doesn’t scream Halloween, then I don’t know what does.

Ingredients:

  • 2/3 cup instant rolled oats
  • 2 packets of stevia (or sweetener of preference)
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 1/3 cup water
  • 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp jell-o instant pumpkin spice pudding mix
  • pinch of cinnamon (optional)

Instructions:

  1. In a medium pot over medium-high heat, add your oats, water, chia seeds and sweetener. Stir to combine, and let it cook for at least 5-6 minutes (or until it gets very thick).
  2. Remove from heat, and separate your oatmeal mixture evenly into two small bowls. In one bowl, add your cocoa powder and a splash of water or milk and mix well. In the other bowl, add your pudding mix, cinnamon and a splash of water or milk and mix well.
  3. Then pour your oatmeal mixtures into two separate mini ramekins. Cover, and refrigerate overnight to set.
  4. The next day, carefully plop each oatcake out of the ramekins. Layer and top on each other, and add any additional toppings as desired (nut butter, chocolate, maple syrup, etc.)
