Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Check out this simple oat cake recipe that’s loaded with nutrients to make your breakfast even more delicious and satisfying. It’s super easy to make and makes a great-tasting breakfast without any fuss, plus it doesn’t require too many ingredients.
Oatmeal has long been a healthy breakfast staple. They are full of health benefits as they have beta-glucan, a dietary fiber that lowers “bad” cholesterol. Oats also contain soluble fiber, which helps reduce blood sugar levels by slowing digestion and lowering the amount of sugar absorbed into the blood. The soluble fiber in oats helps with gastrointestinal issues, which may contribute to other health benefits such as improved digestive health and weight loss. Oatmeal also keeps your stomach full for a longer period of time when compared to ready-to-eat meals like cereals.
● ½ cup rolled or quick oats
● A pinch of salt
● ½ teaspoon baking powder
● 1 banana, ripe
● Cooking Spray
● 1 large egg
● 1 tablespoon maple syrup (or less if you’re cutting down on sugar or using other sweet add-ins)
Directions for baking
Take a blender, add all the ingredients in it, and blend it nicely until smooth and ready to pour.
It’s time to prepare the utensil. Take a large bowl and coat it with cooking spray. Once done, pour the blended batter into the bowl and spread it evenly. Make sure the size of the bowl is at least twice the amount of batter.
Keep the bowl in the microwave and let it cook for a good 90 to 120 seconds.
Once it’s baked nicely, take the container out and let it cool before drizzling it with the fruits of your choice.
Tricks to make the cake more delicious

You can also try banana bread cake; all you need to add to the recipe is cinnamon and chopped nuts.
