Baked Oat Cake

IMG_1560Bake it merrier in a healthy way.  I know it is only the beginning of December.  Are you having way too many holiday cookies and wanting to try something more healthier.  I found this recipe that contains no added sugar and it is so MOIST and pack with FIBER.  The sweetness of the cake is from the fruits.

Baked Oat Cake (makes 1 loaf pan)

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large apple
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1/2 cup raisins or other dried fruit.  I used golden raisins.
  • 1 few pinches of ground cinnamon
  • 1 or 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 cups rolled oats or quick cooking oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup fat free milk
  • 1 egg, beaten

Heat oven to 350ºF and lightly grease a 9×5-inch loaf pan.  Peel, core and slice the apple and put it into a small saucepan with the raisins, a pinch of cinnamon and the water.  Cook gently for about 10 minutes, until the apple is soft, then mash it and mix well with the raisins and banana.  Put all the ingredients into a  bowl and mix well.  Add the apple and raisin mixture and combine.  Pour the mixture into the loaf pan and sprinkle cinnamon on the top.  Bake in the oven for 30 minutes.  If you want to have a smoother texture, pulsed rolled oats in a food processor to a breadcrumb consistency.  I like it just as it is for the crunchy texture in the cake.
