Apple Oatmeal Breakfast Cake Recipe

Whole grain oats and less sugar and fat make this cake healthier. Light, fluffy, and cinnamony, this easy apple cake recipe is perfect for fall!


– 2 cups rolled oats – 2 tsp baking powder – 3/4 tsp sea salt – 2 tsp pumpkin spice* – 2 large egg – 1/2 cup avocado oil* – 1/2 cup pure maple syrup – 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce – 1 ½ tsp pure vanilla extract optional – 1 large apple chopped or grated, about 2 cup


Preheat the oven to 350°F and line an 8-inch square or round cake pan with parchment. Parchment paper instead of cooking spray makes this cake easier to remove from the pan.

Step 1

A high-speed blender can make flour from oats in 30 seconds to 1 minute. Add baking powder, sea salt, and pumpkin pie spice to the blender and blend briefly.

Step 2

Mix eggs, avocado oil, applesauce, pure maple syrup, and vanilla extract in a large bowl. Combine dry and wet ingredients in a bowl.

Step 3

Cake batter with chopped or shredded apples. Toss apples in 1 tablespoon of flour to prevent sticking to pan!

Step 4

Use a rubber spatula to evenly distribute cake batter in the pan. Top the batter with more apple pieces if desired.

Step 5

Bake for 23–28 minutes in the preheated oven until the cake top is golden brown. At 190 degrees F, cakes are done. Insert an instant-read thermometer into the centre to check cake doneness.

Step 6

Remove the cake from the oven and cool to room temperature. Pull the parchment paper to remove the cake from the pan to a cutting board. Share and enjoy the cake!

Step 7

This cake goes well with Greek yoghurt, scrambled eggs, leftover animal protein, etc. for breakfast.
