Here is the slightly darker version of the chocolate oat cake I made not long ago. Adding a bit of coffee extract or granules gives the cake a lovely mocha flavour, mmm!
I realised once it was in the oven, I could have sprinkled the coconut on top BEFORE it went in the oven, and that way you'd get a lovely toasted coconut topping. So there's a little tip for you!
Mocha Oat Cake for One
(Serves 1, about 240 calories without topping)
30g porridge oats
10g chocolate protein (about half a scoop)
1 tsp cocoa
1 tsp instant coffee granules, or two little capfuls of coffee extract
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 egg white
150ml almond milk
- Pre-heat your oven at 180ºC.
- Combine all the ingredients in a bowl, and pour into a baking dish. Bake for about 20 minutes until risen. Let it cool slightly before you top it off with whatever lovely icing, melted chocolate, coconut or whatever your heart desires!
PS. I forgot to grease the tin again *facepalm*
