photoThis healthy snack recipe is adapted from a yummy creation of Chocolate Cover Katie called Cookie Dough Baked Oatmeal. No chocolate in these cakes though – and they are delicious! They are very quick and easy to make and can be eaten warm from the oven, cooled on the counter, or even cold from the fridge.


  • 1 cup rolled oats (50g)
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp maple or agave syrup
  • 1/2 cup mashed ripe banana (about 1 banana)
  • 1/2 cup non-fat milk
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 heaped teaspoons raisins
  • 1 tsp melted unrefined coconut oil (or other veg oil)
  • 2 tsp unsweetened shredded coconut

Preheat oven to 380 degrees. Combine dry ingredients, but reserve 1 tsp of the coconut, then mix in wet. Spoon into 6 cupcake papers in a muffin tin. Sprinkle remaining coconut over top of cakes. Bake for 20 minutes, or until firm. Finally, set your oven to  broil for 3-5 more minutes to brown the tops and toast the coconut.
